Hi,
I have two equations as follows:
L is proportional to (M^6/R^7)
which I have to combine with:
L is proportional to M^5.5 R^-0.5
I need to end up with a relationship which has L proportional to R so that M is eliminated.
My current attempt has gone along the following lines:
Rearrange 2nd Equation so that M is subject and then substitute L back into the equation to have:
M is proportional to ((M^6/R^7)/R^-0.5) <<<<this would be taking to the root 5.5 as well but wasn't sure how to write this down to make it clear on the screen.
My main problem is eliminating M from the equation. Any help appreciated!
Hello, ohdearthisisheadrot!
I have two equations as follows:
. . L is proportional to (M^6/R^7)
. . L is proportional to M^5.5 R^-0.5
I need to end up with a relationship which has L proportional to R so that M is eliminated.
To eliminate , solve both equations for and equate.
We have: .
Equate [3] and [4]: .
Divide by
Square both sides: .
