x dy/dx + y = 1/y^2, solve using bernoulli's equation. i got to du/dx + (2u)/x = 2x(u)^(-1/2). the u^(-1/2) is obviously a problem if im going to solve it using an integrating factor. if that is not what you yourself have gotten to then please show me my error.

never mind. i thought about it and it is the work done by gravity. not the man. which leads me to another question. how exactly would you find the work done by the man. would he be represented as another vector or or in the vector field?

alright thanks, my teacher never showed us that if you set one of the variables equal to zero you can make it a one variable function. so say i approach x=0 and find the limit of that to be infinity. does the original function f(x,y) not exist?

lim (x^3-1)/(x^3+2x^2y+xy^2-x^2-2xy-y^2) (x,y)->(1,0) my question is can you approach (1,0) with y=x and does that change the the limit to lim f(x,x) (x,x)->(1,1) in which case i get 3/4 as the limit. and if this is not how i go about doing it can you point me in the ...

Calculus. I need help!
im guessing you meant sin(x)^5. in which case yeah you did it wrong. you derive (x)^k , k being a constant, like this k*(x)^(k-1)*x' so f'(x)=5sin(x)^4*cos(x)
