- I mentioned in class that the method of evaluating an "impossible to evaluate" integral by switching the order of integration is a kind of magic. Another quasi-magical method for evaluating integrals is the trick of "differentiating under the integral", as practiced by Richard Feynman, the Nobel-prize-winning physicist. Here is a nice write-up showing how to use the trick on some examples: Integration: The Feynman Way.
- We were wondering in class about possible formulas for the volumes of prism-shaped objects. One relevant formula goes by the name of the "prismoidal formula",
and states that the volumes of some objects can be computed by the formula V = (1/6)(B + 4M + T), where B is the area of the base, M is the area of the midsection,
and T is the area of the top. Somewhat surprisingly, this formula works not only for prism-shaped objects, but also for objects such as spheres and ellipsoids. Can you
see why it is true for a sphere? A discussion of this formula is given in the article Some Notes on The Prismoidal Formula,
by B. E. Meserve and R. E. Pingry,
*Mathematics Teacher*, Vol. 45, No. 4, April 1952, pp. 257-263. - As I mentioned in class, our textbook notes that whenever you take the cross product of two vectors
**a**and**b**, it "turns out" that the direction of the resulting vector**a**x**b**is determined by the right-hand rule: if you curl the fingers of your right hand in the direction from**a**to**b**, then your thumb points in the direction of**a**x**b**. But how would one prove this? An explanation (due to Fuchang Gao at the University of Idaho in beautiful Moscow, Idaho) can be found here.
