A bridge is built in the shape of

Joselito Cueto 2022-10-02

A bridge is built in the shape of a parabolic arc and is to have a span of 100 feet. The height of the arch at a distance of 40 feet from the center is to be 10 feet. Assume that the ground is the x-axis and the y-axis as the axis of the arc.

a. How high is the arch at its center approximated in two decimal places?

b. What is the horizontal length, approximated to two decimal places, of the arch from axis when it’s 15 feet high?

How to solve X×=(1+δ{(x)})X
I am trying to find the vibration modes of a string that has a uniform mass density, plus some point mass somewhere attached to it, modelled by an additional Dirac delta function in the mass density. The wave equation is of the form
uxx=(1+δ(x))utt
where u is the deformation, and (1+δ(x)) the mass density. After separation of variables we find
X×=(1+δ{(x)})X
where X is the spatial part of the solution. Is there any analytical solution for X?

How can I handle exp(ln|x|) to solve 1st order linear DE?
RHS and LHS are same.
exp(ln(x))=exp(ln(x))     (1)
Taking log.
ln(exp(ln(x)))=ln(exp(ln(x)))     (2)
ln(x)=ln(exp(ln(x)))     (3)
∴≈x=exp(ln(x))     (4)
Then what about ln|x| ?
This problem is a sub-problem of below ODE.
dydx-2xy=x6     (5)
My thoughts are as below.
P(x) =2x     (6)
Q(x) =x6     (7)
dydx+P(x)y=Q(x)1st order linear DE     (8)
Integrating factor=exp(P(x)dx)     (9)
exp(-2xdx)     (10)
=exp(21xdx)     (11)
=exp(-2lnx+const)     (12)
=exp(-2lnx)exp(const)     (13)
=exp(lnx)-2exp(const)     (14)
exp(lnx)=exp(lnx)     (15)
I got the following general solution as I forcefully assumed
~ x=exp(lnx) ~
y=15x7+const1x2     (16)
