HONORS PHYSICS STUDY GUIDE CHAPTER 19 ELECTRIC CIRCUITS
When two or more resistors are connected in series to a battery
a) the total voltage across the combination is the algebraic sum of the voltages across
the individual resistors.
b) the same curren
Abstract: Born and bred in Ellicott City, Maryland, life was pretty easy. From the very beginning,
all I did was win; science competitions, math competitions, violin competitions. This
comfortable pattern continued until I attended an FDS party my liver l
Diagonal values are the coefficients of the squared powers (2,6,-5)
The coefficients of polynomial element correspond to matrix location
-8x1x2: coefficient is -8
So matrix(1,2) and matrix(2,1) must add up to -8
Thus, matrix(1,2) = mat
areaT = @(b,h) b*h/2
A1 = areaT(b1,h1)
Creates evenly spaced row vector with n values from x1 to x2
m x n of random int in range
array containing n copies of A in the row and column
A square matrix is only invertible if det ~= 0
Det(A) = det(AT)
Det(AB) = det(BA) = det(A)*det(B)
Det(k*A) = k^n(det A), where A is an nxn matrix
Det(inv(A) = 1/det(A)
An Eigenvector pretty much just means that Av = kv; Av should be a multipl
Linear Algebra Midterm Review
Consistent one/more solutions
o Inconsistent no solution
Isomorphism an invertible linear transformation is called an isomorphism
o Bijective both onto and one to one
T(p1+p2) = T(p1) + T(p2)
T(kp) = kT(p)

Hope all is well. I wanted to write a letter to apologize for the recent incident
involving a certain statement I wrote on your whiteboard recently. I did not
think my decision through, and this resulted in a poor decision on my behalf
The West and the East: Cognitive Differences
When dozens of studies of this sort are placed side by side a composite picture of the Eastern and
Western mind can be drawn. Asians perceive the world as a complex, constantly chan
