Want facts and want them fast? Our Maths in a minute series explores key mathematical concepts in just a few words.
Generating electricity without the use of fossil fuels is not just an engineering and industrial challenge, it is also a huge mathematical challenge.
In this podcast author Coralie Colmez shares insights into her novel The irrational diary of Clara Valentine.
We talk to early career mathematicians who spent some of their summer holiday solving problems posed by industry — such as how to blend a perfect smoothie!
Don't like plantbased meat alternatives, but want to spare animals and the environment? There's hope on the horizon, aided by a good helping of maths.
Inverse problems are mathematical detective problems. They can help solve crimes, are used in medical imaging, and much more.
Hi, you will see that at x=2 x Pi (= 6.284..) cos(x) has completed one whole cycle; as there are 2*Pi radians in one cycle. There are also 360 degrees in one cycle. Therefore there are 360 / ( 2 x Pi) = 57.295779.... degrees in one radian. Now simply multiply every term in the expansion by 57.3 and you have the result in degrees. Of course it is easier to just use the original expansion and do a single multiply of the result by 57.3.
I hope this helps! Tony S
