2017-03-22 18:58:49 -0500 | answered a question | solving a physic problem using sage Your first three equations for the balance of the components of force look fine. Your fourth equation, while accurate, is less useful than writing the tensions $S_x$ and $S_y$ as projections of the total tension $T$: $ \qquad S_x = \frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+j^2}}T \qquad S_y = \frac{j}{\sqrt{x^2+j^2}}T $ Your fifth equation is incorrect, since it says that the amount of rope on each side of the nail is always equal, which is not true for a sliding inelastic rope. If the rope is of length $L$, then the constraint you want is $ \qquad y + \sqrt{x^2+j^2} = L $ If you take a second derivative of this constraint with respect to time and substitute it in the first equation, you'll have an expression for the total tension $T$ as a function of $x$ and $j$ and their derivatives. You can use that to eliminate $T$ from the second and third equations. Then you should have three coupled nonlinear differential equations for $x$, $j$ and $y$ without $T$. At that point you'll have to numerically integrate the equations as a system using for example this method. You'll need to solve for all second derivatives and then introduce intermediate variables for the first derivatives of $x$, $j$ and $y$ in order to write the system in terms of first-order equations. The problem you're trying to solve is mathematically identical to the swinging Atwood machine, but with one point of support instead of two. While it can be done in Cartesian coordinates, it will look a lot simpler in polar coordinates. Cheers! |

2017-03-19 15:02:53 -0500 | edited answer | Show Sage results in a webpage as string (not as Sagecell box) There is an existing way to use SageMathCell as a web API. It's described briefly here, but since the documentation needs improvement I'll record some information here. One way to access the API is by submitting a form to http://sagecell.sagemath.org/service (do not include a trailing slash on this URL). The documentation has a JSFiddle that I have updated for your specific example. Your command (or any other that returns a printable result) appears in a text input on the fiddle, and the output is printed below when the button is clicked. The fiddle works by URL encoding the command and posting it to the server. If you don't want to use a form, you can read the input from a text field and submit it to the server with an XMLHttpRequest. Here's some sample code that sends your URL-encoded command to the server and opens an alert window with the result: And for command line people, here's how to get the same JSON data using cURL: References for SageMath as a web API came from this issue on GitHub.

2017-03-16 18:38:37 -0500 | commented question | Echo input in output. I didn't realize myself that derivatives will now appear typeset if entered as fully symbolic functions, so you taught me something! As a former Mathematica user, I myself still don't quite get all the different ways Sage processes functions, symbolic or merely callable, so welcome to the club. That whole process could be made clearer. P.S. if you put square brackets around the first URL in each pair and leave the parentheses around the second URL, they should the work like proper links for future readers. |

2017-03-15 15:29:45 -0500 | answered a question | Echo input in output. Typesetting for objects like derivatives, integrals and limits is not yet fully implemented in Sage, so the icing isn't available. You can however do something manually like this, which gives the sort of output you want. |

The second integral is the negative of the first: if you add them together you'll get zero. |

2017-03-09 15:09:05 -0500 | answered a question | limit of function with dirac delta To expand on the comment by @kcrisman, limits are sent to Maxima by default. Maxima can evaluate the limit of the step function: entering returns returns an unevaluated expression. Since part of your limit cannot be evaluated by Maxima, it all comes back unevaluated. The other option for limit evaluation is to set returns zero as expected. Unfortunately, entering gives the message Even more problematic, entering gives the message so SymPy won't get the complete job done either. Not exactly the answer you want, but hopefully it helps you understand what's happening. |
