I wish I had a more general answer, but I can give a specific example. In order to work with circuits, differential equations (an area of calculus) must be used to understand and study the relationships between current, voltage, resistance, power, and work.
There are two likely calculus applications of this problem. Both differential calculus and basic vector operations can be used to solve for power in a scenario, depending on how a problem is defined. Power is the dot-product of a force vector and a velocity vector and... Power is a change in energy over time, or in differential terms: dE/dt If you were given a function that defined a system's energy with respect to time, you could derive it to find a function for that system's power output. If you were given a force vector and a velocity vector and asked to find the total power applied to the system, you could take the dot product of the two vectors to find this. Or, if you are not taking a calculus approach to it: Average power is simply energy divided by time The magnitude of power given a force and velocity can be found with the formula: P=F*v*cos(theta) Where F is the magnitude of the force v is the magnitude of the velocity theta is the angle between the two quantities.
It doesn't. You can make a differential amplifier with a single power supply.
Differential is the 3rd member of the power train The engine is the 1st (powering the vehicle) The transmission is the 2nd member (taking that power and transmitting through various gear ratios to the differential) The differential takes that adjusted power to the drive wheels
Differential: relating to or showing a difference; "differential treatment" It is a part of a vehicle to transfer power from the driveshaft to the wheels.
They are all power of three.
The order of a differential equation is a highest order of derivative in a differential equation. For example, let us assume a differential expression like this. d2y/dx2 + (dy/dx)3 + 8 = 0 In this differential equation, we are seeing highest derivative (d2y/dx2) and also seeing the highest power i.e 3 but it is power of lower derivative dy/dx. According to the definition of differential equation, we should not consider highest power as order but should consider the highest derivative's power i.e 2 as order of the differential equation. Therefore, the order of the differential equation is second order.
The differential in a tractor greatly multiplies the power generated by the motor - enabling it to do more work.
When you have gone far enough in math to where you can handle some integral calculus, you'll be able to derive that formula for yourself in about three lines.
the formula for power is work/time.
