## Applications of Differential Equations## A Suspended Wire
We now consider a wire ten times heavier, i.e. with linear density of 5 lbs/ft, but still subjected to a horizontal tension of 40 lbs. ## InstructionsProduce the graph of the wire on the interval -5 ≤ ## Setting Things UpI suggest that you do this new problem numerically rather than analytically, (though either method should work.) It is almost identical to the one we just did, so I'm not going to type out the commands for you—you can just look back at what we've already done if you need any hints. Obviously all that needs to be altered for this new graph is: - the name of the solution and the name of the plot
- the value of
*w*in the NDSolve command - the color used in the RGBColor command
So go back to Welcome back. Let's move on to see what you should have gotten... |
