If you want a symbolic solution, do NOT define
numerical values to variables before the symbolically
Do not use units for integration or differentiation.
Determine constant of integration for indefinite
Change originial source of equation and
answer changes - live integrals.
Static doesn't automatically update
Determine if live or static solution is needed.
Use of real numbers will force high precision numerical
results. Use integers and fractions when possible. Symbolic Calculus Example
A jet bike is moving along a straight road with the
speed describe by the velocity-distance graph shown
Velocity vs. Distance Speeding up then slowing down V=5s1/2
v=-0.2s + 120
V.A(s):= 5 * sqrt(s) 0 < s < 225 V (m/s)
i:=0..225 V.B(s):=0.2s+120 225 < s < 525 j:=225..525 Graph: V.A(i) plot against i, V.B(j) plot against j 15
V.A(225) = 75 m/s V.B(525) = 15 m/s 0
Write an expression for the acceleration as a funciton of distance then make a graph of acceleration vs. Distance (a=v*dv/ds)m)
