## Electric Fields & Mathematica

My first thought when this project was presented to us, I knew that I wanted to apply what we’ve learned in class to physics in some way, physics being my intended major. Vector fields can be applied to physics in a … Continue reading “Electric Fields & Mathematica” →

## 3D Modeling of a Pringles Can

First, we used an approximation to estimate the height (~25.9cm) and radius (~3.8cm) of a Pringles can to model a cylinder in Mathamatica. We used these approximations to calculate the volume of the cylinder (Volume = πr2h) and we found … Continue reading “3D Modeling of a Pringles Can” →

## Rolling into Mathematics: The Dot Product of a Rolling Ball

This project aims to show how the work performed on an object can be calculated using the dot product of the vectors of the object’s displacement and the net force acting on the object. In physics, work is defined as the … Continue reading “Rolling into Mathematics: The Dot Product of a Rolling Ball” →

## Snoopy’s Christmas

My project was graphing Snoopy on his little red cabin, as well as using some other skills we learned in class to graph spirographs and other shapes. In order to do this, I used Mathematica and inspired myself from some … Continue reading “Snoopy’s Christmas” →

## Using Multivariable Calculus to Graph Pasta Shapes

There is more of the relationship between Multivariable Calculus and the food that we consume in our daily lives than we usually think! For our project, we created four different shapes of pasta in Mathematica which demonstrates how technology can … Continue reading “Using Multivariable Calculus to Graph Pasta Shapes” →

## 3D- Modeling of the International Space Station

We chose to model the Multipurpose Laboratory Module (Nauka) and the European Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), which are two important components of the International Space Station (ISS). The ISS is a scientific laboratory that orbits around the Earth 16 times … Continue reading “3D- Modeling of the International Space Station” →

## Languages Around the World

We wanted to graph a structure that represented the number of languages different countries around the world spoke. To do this, we first chose various countries from every continent in order to get an accurate sample and figured out how many … Continue reading “Languages Around the World” →

## Pasta La Vista!

When thinking about where your next meal comes from, always remember, math is everywhere. Pasta comes in all shapes and sizes. We were fascinated with its ability to take in water, and form. Therefore, we decided to make our own … Continue reading “Pasta La Vista!” →

## Modeling a Bagel (Torus)

The typical shape of a bagel is fairly recognizable as a doughy-looking circle with a hole straight through the middle. Although the shape is fairly simple, it is interesting when graphed with parametric equations. The formula for graphing a bagel … Continue reading “Modeling a Bagel (Torus)” →
