Math Monkey

φI study mechanical engineering, as anyone who knows me know. I’m pretty bad at it. Hence this website….One thing I’ve noticed, and discussed with others is the entire lack of…speciality in subjects, or specifically. explanations of things. Any Google-fu’er can tell you, the more indepth you get into a subject the harder it can be to find real answers. A Recent subject for me, while looking into/researching vibration engineering for a 5 axis laser cutter I’ve been working on was “reactionary forces“. Often described by Newtons impulsesatz as m\: \ddot{x} = \displaystyle\sum_{i=1}^{n}\,F_i + Z_i Where Z_i is the reactionary force. I’m the last person in the world…or well maybe second last who should be asked what its all about. But basically to conserve energy in a system, you need it…but it doesn’t really exist. ‘Cause it’s virtual or some bullshit.

Anyways, it’s something that I’ve only ever had to calculate once, for a single assignment, and never had to do again. So I figured I’d write a little about it. Mostly because it was frustrating, but interesting at the same time. This is math heavy post btw. Continue reading “Math Monkey”
