## Applications of Differential Equations## The Simple Pendulum
Your output from the command I just gave you should have looked something like this:
Plot[{Sin[y],y},{y,-0.5,0.5}] What do you notice about the two graphs? Hopefully you notice that they are
barely distinguishable from one another. Now certainly the graphs of
sin(
Now as mathematicians we're always a little suspicious of how much trust we can put in a picture, so now let's look at another approach that leads us to the same conclusion.
We're going to expand sin( Series[Sin[y],{y,0,10}] Here the zero tells Now go to Let's now discuss your result... |
