I have tried every method that the course has given to us so for, My-Nx/N / Nx-My/M integrating factors, trying in tons of different ways to express the solution, doing it as a separable equation

I've even used every online differential equation solver and entered their solutions but none of them are proving right

Please someone take the 2 minutes to help me out here

>(1) methods to describe relationships between defined entities
>(2) methods to study relationships between found entities using i.a. (1)

(2) is more powerful since it includes (1), while also capable of using other methods.

>inb4 mathfags claim all logic and reasoning
>>
>>10317788
That’s not how it works. The sciences don’t contain nor own mathematics; there are plenty of fields that aren’t motivated by scientific endeavor. So while (2) uses (1), it doesn’t contain any power that (1) didn’t have by itself. The ability to use math to solve a problem that may pertain to a field isn’t automatically science. You can study some phenomena using mathematics and still have it be applied mathematics, but once you start building ontologies and theories with the mathemetics as formalization, a scientific theory/description arises.

The /sci/ color scheme gives it better contrast.

So I shed hair pretty badly, it’s also bulbed at the root. All over my body. My hair has thinned significantly. I was on prednisone for 5 days for laryngitis and during that time I noticed that I shed significantly less hair. Now bloodwork, Ana etc, was negative but if prednisone helped with this type of hair loss doesn’t that mean I have some sort of autoimmune condition?

Does π have a pattern?

>Pi, the ubiquitous number whose first few digits are 3.14159, is irrational, which means that its digits run on forever (by now they have been calculated to billions of places) and never repeat in a cyclical fashion. Numbers like pi are also thought to be "normal," which means that their digits are random in a certain statistical sense.

>Describing the normality property, Bailey explains that "in the familiar base 10 decimal number system, any single digit of a normal number occurs one tenth of the time, any two-digit combination occurs one one-hundredth of the time, and so on. It's like throwing a fair, ten-sided die forever and counting how often each side or combination of sides appears."

>Pi certainly seems to behave this way. In the first six billion decimal places of pi, each of the digits from 0 through 9 shows up about six hundred million times. Yet such results, conceivably accidental, do not prove normality even in base 10, much less normality in other number bases.

>In fact, not a single naturally occurring math constant has been proved normal in even one number base, to the chagrin of mathematicians. While many constants are believed to be normal -- including pi, the square root of 2, and the natural logarithm of 2, often written "log(2)" -- there are no proofs.

In order to reduce rising oceans, why not flood part of Libya, creating a salt water sea that can be used to make fresh water and energy?

It would make Libya much more valuable real estate, too.

Stl is objectively best future and can be achieved with current technology (fission and VASIMIR) if we could figure out the whole stasis/cryo thing, fuck your centrally controlled empire bullshit.
>>
>>10317792
The empire is a side issue, the whole point of having exoplanets is being able to zip around from one to another on grand adventures, discovering mysterious enigmatic ruins and alien beasts, and being able to get lost in the vastness of the galaxy at a moment's notice. Having to pick a solar system to go to by slowship, and then be stuck there, is very limiting. Each star system will become a centrally controlled empire of planets and stations and each system lord will be able to track you down relatively easily.

>>10314867
FTL travel doesn’t work with our current models because we only partially understand 3 dimensions of space and 1 of time. If indeed there are other dimensions present (as many theories suggest) then our current theories and laws will not be sufficient to cover how the universe really operates.

University of Washington seems to think that rapidly rotating Bose-Einstein condensates produce evoked negative energy states. Some even say that the Black Triangle aircraft use this method for propulsion. Not so much "anti-gravity" as directional anti-inertia.
