Differential Notation in Physics

1. Differential Notation in Physics

Stop. Look around. Everything is changing. In this lesson, you'll learn what a differential equation is and how these equations can describe the world around you.

Separation of Variables to Solve System Differential Equations

2. Separation of Variables to Solve System Differential Equations

In this lesson, we discuss how to solve some types of differential equations using the separation of variables technique. We'll ponder the dastardly deeds of a mad scientist, using his chemical concoction as an example for how to use separation of variables.

Calculating Rate and Exponential Growth: The Population Dynamics Problem

3. Calculating Rate and Exponential Growth: The Population Dynamics Problem

You know how the world population keeps increasing? It's increasing faster now than it was 100 or 1,000 years ago. In this lesson, learn how differential equations predict this type of exponential growth.

Related Rates: The Draining Tank Problem

4. Related Rates: The Draining Tank Problem

Grab an empty cup and pour some water into it. In this lesson we will watch how the height of the water changes as we learn about related rates of change and learn how to solve the draining tank problem.

Related Rates: The Distance Between Moving Points Problem

5. Related Rates: The Distance Between Moving Points Problem

Remember the classic problem of math horror stories everywhere? You know, where one train leaves Kentucky at 2 p.m. and another leaves Sacramento at 4 p. m.? In this lesson, tame the horror and learn how to solve these problems using differentiation and related rates.

Oscillation: Definition, Theory & Equation

6. Oscillation: Definition, Theory & Equation

In this article you will learn about mathematical functions that are used to model oscillations. An oscillation is any motion that repeats itself, and the function describing a particular oscillation is an example of a periodic function. Sine and cosine are the most common periodic functions.
