Solutions

Chapter 1.6, Problem 20E
To determine

To find: The inverse of a function m=f(v)=m01v2c2 and interpret the meaning.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 20E

The inverse function, f1(m)=c1m02m2 . It represents the velocity of the particle.

Explanation of Solution

Let the given function is m=m01v2c2 .

Solve this equation for v as follows.

1v2c2=m0m1v2c2=m02m2[squaring on both sides]v2c2=1m02m2v2=c2(1m02m2)

Therefore, the value of v=c2(1m02m2) . That is, v=c1m02m2 .

Hence, the function expressed in terms of m.

Thus, the required inverse function is v=f1(m)=c1m02m2 , which represents the velocity of the particle.
