• ## My First Blog Post

28 Sep 2019

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken. — Oscar Wilde. Hello everyone! My name is Angelo, I am 16 and I have been into the world of science since I was a kid, when I used to look at my dad making some project with his soldering iron. Always searching for an answer to my why’s, never satisfied and longing to know more. You know, I used to be terrible at maths when I was in elementary school. My teacher was aware of my potential and just wouldn’t let me… Read more

• ## Voltage and current | What are they?

7 Oct 2021

Voltage and current are two very important quantities that we want to monitor in circuits to exactly know what’s going on. But what are they, and what is the difference… Read more

20 Apr 2020

I’ll be honest: I had no idea how to do this at first, but then I thought that it was probably easier than I could imagine. What most likely blocks… Read more

• ## Integral of ln²(x)

15 Apr 2020

In this post I will show you how to find the anti-derivative of the function f(x)=ln²(x). We are going to use integration by parts: Now we can write u times… Read more

I am a big fan of blackpenredpen. This guy posts videos on Youtube about calculus and more. Some days ago I received a notification and this is what the thumbnail… Read more

• ## i-th root of i

8 Mar 2020

In my previous post we talked about i^i and we evaluated it. We found that the result is a real number, although you would expect it to be complex since i is an imaginary number. Is this the case for the i-th root of i? First of all, let’s write this as a power: Now, this is can also be written as We already know what i^i equals therefore, This means it’s simply the inverse of i^i, and so it’s a real number as well! If you use a calculator… Read more

• ## i to the i-th power

8 Mar 2020

Ever wondered what the imaginary unit i raised to itself is equal to? Is it going to be a complex number? Or a real one? Let’s find out! Let’s first define i: Therefore, There is an identity in maths which is in my opinion one of the most beautiful equations that exist, and that is Euler’s identity: This means At this point we have two expressions: We can use the second one to replace the -1 in the first: We no longer have the i because i times i equals… Read more

• ## Hard looking yet beautiful integral

7 Feb 2020

Never judge a book by its cover: this is the case. This integral requires a bit of work and knowledge, as you need to know about the Gaussian integral (I… Read more

• ## Gaussian integral using Feynman’s technique

6 Jan 2020

In my last post we evaluated the following definite integral This is the formula we got: and this is the integral we want to evaluate: which is equivalent to because… Read more

• ## Integral of e^-x^t using Feynman’s technique

5 Jan 2020

Wouldn’t it be nice to generalize the Gaussian integral to any exponent of –x? This is the famous integral: Since this is an even function, it can be written as… Read more
