Coordinate Transformation x y T=f(x) T=0 T=0 T=0 x y T=0 T=0 T=f(x) T=0 For the obvious reason, the solution of case A will be different from that of case B. However, the question is whether do we need to derive the solution B from scratch if solution A is available Case A Case B x=a y=b

The problem can be simplified by doing a simple coordinate transformation: by assigning a new variable such that ' - Therefore 0 ' ; ' 0 In other words, the case A will transform to y y b y y y b y b y b y b y = = = - = = = - = case B if the new variable ' (shown as the red axis) is used and vice versa. y x T=f(x) T=0 T=0 T=0 x=a y=b y’=0 y=0 y’=b y y’

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
