Can someone please show me how to find the HWHM of (3/4)(1-X^2), x between -1 and 1. This is a side exercise for my class and I'm a little lost. Thanks

Thanks Do this in steps: 1. What is the maximum value of the function? 2. What is half of that value? (Call it $\displaystyle y_{1/2}$.) 3. Solve $\displaystyle \frac{3}{4}(1 - x^2) = y_{1/2}$ for x. 4. Your answer is the difference between the two solutions of #3. -Dan
