  • Hubble Age of the Universe?

    Compute the Hubble age of the universe assuming H = 75 km/s/Mpc.

    I think I have to use the equation: v = H0d.

    Do I just solve for d?

    Thanks!

  • What's a good laptop for coding?

    Hello, I'm looking to buy a laptop for school. I primarily want it for Python coding but I also want a decent one for programs such as Matlab, Maple, and other programs I may be required to download. What would be a good laptop for these? My budget is around $500 and any guidance is appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • Hasse Diagram Question?

    Let S = Natural Numbers,. and let R be the "divides" relation. Draw the Hasse diagram for the interval poset [4,400].

    I know 4 goes at the bottom and 400 at the top but I don't know how I should divide it or how many numbers I should have in the diagram.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

  • What is this word called?

    I can't remember the exact definition but it's something like:

    "If you are born into this, then you are this."

    For example,

    "You are christian because you were born into a christian family."

    Can't think of other examples.

  • Linear Algebra Orthonormal Basis?

    Need some help with this problem:

    Find an orthonormal basis of the plane

    x1-8x2-x3=0

    I know you have to choose two points on the plane and then do the Gram-Schmidt process right? I made

    v1=[1,-8,-1] and v2=[1,0,1]

    The magnitude of v1=sqrt(66)

    so when I multiplied (v1)(1/sqrt(66)) to find the first basis I got

    [1/sqrt(66),-8/sqrt(66),-1/sqrt(66)]

    But this wasn't right. What am I doing wrong?

  • Linear Algebra?

    I just had a test for linear algebra and I don't remember the problem exactly but we were given this equation and we had to turn it into a 3x3 matrix and find the image and the kernel. The equation was:

    x+3y+5z=0

    I know how to find the image and the kernel but how do I make this into a 3x3 matrix? Can't get this question out of my head it's the only one I missed.

    Thanks!

  • Age of the Universe?

    One way to estimate the distance to a cluster is to assume that the brightest galaxies in each cluster have the same absolute magnitude. If galaxies get fainter with time, we would be underestimating the distance to the more distant clusters of galaxies. How would that affect our estimate for the age of the universe?

  • Age of the Universe?

    If galaxies were slowing with time, how would that affect the Hubble constant and our estimate for the age of the universe?
