8 |
Start Chapter 5 |

paragraph before the problem! §4.4, p. 120, #5. Problems N & O. §4.5, p. 126, #3,4. |
F 5/18 | Chem & Physics students: you may want to read Example 3, pp. 125-126, then work on Exercise 6. §4.5, p. 126, #2. | |

9 |
Ch. 5: pp. 127-133, and §§5.4-5.5 Example from class on 5/23. |
Study for Quiz on Friday 5/25. More info will be at Canvas by Monday. |

F 5/25 | Repeat Problem N with one changed BC:
u(r_0,θ) = 3sin(2θ) |

10 |
Ch. 6: see Reading Guide for Ch. 6. | Read §6.2, p. 173, #1, then do #2. Discussion & reassignment of Problem N. |
§6.2, p. 173, #6 & 7. §6.3, p. 183, #4 - explain why #7 in §6.2 applies. |
F 6/1 | §5.5, p. 157, #2 with ρ = δ = 3. |

§1.3, p. 17: "Use the results in the text" means you do NOT have to do the separation of variables again. But in #5, 6, & 7, the PDE and BC are new, go through the whole process, considering ALL possible (real) values of the separation constant

§2.1, p. 31: USE THE HINTS! When deriving a formula, you may use any formula earlier on the list, whether or not you've derived the earlier formula. You should need to compute integrals for only one or two of the seven

§2.2, #7: "Be careful" just means "remember the convergence theorem and apply it correctly."

§4.2, #1: This does not need anything from Chapter 4. The only reason it isn't in §2.5 is that it needs §3.3, #6, to justify that the formal series solution does in fact converge to a solution to the problem.

§4.2, #7: In (a), give both mathematical and physical reasons. In (b): Technique 2 is overkill; try

§4.4, #3: Why is the integral condition on

§5.4: Note instructions on p. 148!
