that makes sense now, cheers!
Don't mention it. I'm not sure why, but if you're curious and google yields nothing some of the other regulars on this thread will be able to answer that question!

I just checked another website they used 30 degrees and ended up with the same answer.

Here's a screenshot of what they did:

It will only give the same answer for the integral you gave if your calculator is in degrees mode. Stick to radians for trig calculus

alright thanks

Am I allowed to cancel out ? so that it simplifies to:

To keep with the trend... Show that:

I think it would be sufficient to show that:

Ok, first we show which is true as

Now we show

Assume

which is true as

Finally, we show

Assume the above to be true

which is true as each nested radical on the LHS is less than 1, and we're done

I fear there may be a flaw in my logic, seems to simple

I've been scratching my head about a fox and a rabbit for a while, so I figured I'd give this a go.
Given its a show that rather than a prove that:

Consider the left inequality first, squaring and rearranging acouple of times.

Which it clearly is.

Considering the right inequality, squaring and rearranging.

Which again, it clearly is.

Very similar to mine - damn you Felix - you beat me to it
I've been spending a while on the rabbit and fox and nowt's happening

Nice
What problem is this? :O I'll go snoop

Haha both of you are amazing, want a hint? woohoo! payback

Its on p201 I think
I'm having trouble generating a suitable function for the motion of the fox
Looks a little bit like M2 so I was taking a crash course

LOOL good luck I told you i'd find a good question
Felix here:
There is a rabbit that runs in a perfect circle of radius r with a constant speed v. A fox chases the rabbit, starting from the center of the circle and also moves with a constant speed v such that it is always between the center of the circle and the rabbit. How long will it take for the fox to catch the rabbit?

Did M2 Jan 2010 for the first time and got 70 , I wouldn't say it's that bad although my method for quite a few was different to the MS. Dropped all the marks on the last question as I didn't know what to do. I mean why did they use dy/dx for projectiles?
15. On another note...it appears The Polymath has been banned again

Was this for the final part of the question? That also confused me but would it because they would have the same gradient but just different signs? I'm just taking a guess really and it's most likely incorrect.

Yh 8c I believe it was, I thought something similar; that the vertical velocity would be the same but in the opposite direction but I got it all wrong. Still managed a method mark for using v = u + at

That's fair enough then and that would've been the only place I dropped marks too, however I put the correct answer for the impulse question but then decided to cross it out as I actually thought it wouldn't make much sense of the direction afterwards if it got hit at that angle, so I lost a good amount of marks there but still got 65/75 in the end which wasn't all that bad considering the grade boundaries
