I have been trying to find a formula that relates height of a segment from the bottommost point of a circle toward the center of the circle to the corresponding distance along the circumference of the circle (i.e. at the point on the circumference intersected by a line perpendicular to that segment). The unknown variable is the height of the segment; the known variables are the radius of the circle and the distance along the circumference.

Fourier transform 2001-08-07
Adbul pose la question :
  1. Sir, we have the Dirichlet's condition for the Fourier transform : " The function should be integral over the real line " But why we are we neglecting this for example when we take the Fourier transform of an impulse train?

  2. Suppose we want to travel from one corner of a square of side 'a' to the diagonally opposite corner. We can travel along the sides which gives a pah length of '2a'. We can also do it in steps as shown below:

      _ | |_PATH |   |_ |_____| 


    Suppose The step size =DELTA x Then the path length will be again '2a'. Now in the limit DELTA x -->0 again we get '2a' But when we take the limit we get the straight line diagonal whose length is 'SQRT(2)X a' Where did I go wrong?

Numbers that can be written in the form p/q where p and q are integers, (q not 0), are known as rational numbers. What you are missing is that p and q must be integers. The fact that Pi is irrational means that you can't have a circle with both the circumference and diameter being integers. In fact you can't even have the circumference and diameter both rational since the quotient of two rationals is again a rational.

Length of a line 1999-10-10
Dagmara Sarudi pose la question :
My question has to do with the length of a diagonal. This problem came up when I thought about the shortest distance between two points, for example walking from one point to another in my neighborhood. I can choose a zig zag route and assuming the blocks I walk are exactly the same length, it shouldn't matter what route I took, the distance I travel should still be the same when I reached my goal. If, on the other hand I could travel in a diagonal line, the distance would be shorter. But what if, in my zig zag motion, the sections get so small the route approaches a diagonal. Shouldn't it be that each separate section added together equals the value of the two original sides? Or would it suddenly equal the value of the diagonal (which, of course was shorter than the two sides added together)?
What gives?

Measuring the fourth dimension 1999-06-07

Hi! The other day, two of my students asked a very interesting question: Is the fourth dimension measured with hypercubes? Their reasoning went like this: Lines are 1D and are measured with line segments, which are part of a line. Planes are 2D and are measured with squares, which are part of a plane. Space is 3D and is measured with cubes, which are part of space. So, logically, hypercubes would be used to measure the fourth dimension.
