p=m/v now i know that the change in density is going to be due to the change i mass and volume

so would it be \[dp=\frac{dm}{dv}\]

my teacher had his second equation in a similar problem as \[pdv=dm\] which i can only get if i let \[p*dv=\frac{dm}{dv}*dv\]

What subject is this?

Outkast3r09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it's calculusbased physics

the only unrelevant equation that makes it physics is \[g=\frac{Gm}{r^2}\] where G is the gravitational constant \[6.67*10^{11}\] m is the mass below and r is the radius to the center

so since we're given a radius and a mass you can find out what the Gfield is at the surface and solve for what 25% of it is. However to find the unknowns depth and mass , we need calculus

Outkast3r09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
calculus is needed due to the fact that the mass and volume are changing as you get farther into the core which changes the density

correct so where does \[pdv=dm\] come from

by any chance, is the density function given? p(x)?

ehh i think it was something like (.0000007+10^4)r
 one year ago

Outkast3r09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it is (.000005r+10^4)
 one year ago

zordoloomBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So p(x) is (.000005r+10^4)?

i found this \[M=\int pdV\] which would make sense but how does pdv=dm relate. Afterthis it makes sense \[\int dm=\int pdV\] \[m=pdV\]

\[ p=\frac{m}{v}\] is it because p is essentially the change in density
 one year ago

Outkast3r09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so \[p=\Delta p=\frac{\Delta m}{\Delta v}\]

Yes, p is the density function, and since it has r in it, it changes depending on the radius. In the previous steps, I showed the mass by integrating p over the volume of the star... so that's like rearranging the equation to read m = p*v. But since p changes, I had to do an integral.

or would it actually be \[pdr=\frac{dm}{dv}\] \[pdvdr=dm\]
