    mathandthoughts:

    For anyone who goes through calculus, you hear a lot of theorems stated with the caveat that the function you’re working with is a “nice” function. A lot of the time, this means it’s just smooth and continuous. But why do we really need these kinds of conditions?

    This is the Weierstrass…

    Nice graph of a ‘not nice’ function. The wikipedia link takes care of the rest.

    A couple more springs visualizations because I love Simple Harmonic Motion!!

    Notice that damping causes the total energy to decrease exponentially (HUGE jump at the beginning, and then slowly approaches zero).

    This high-speed video shows a liquid crystal fluid vibrating on a tuning fork. As the surface moves, tiny jets shoot upward, sometimes with sufficient energy that the fluid column is stretched beyond surface tension’s ability to keep it intact, resulting in droplet ejection. The jets and surface waves create a mesmerizing pattern of fluid motion. (Video credit: J. Savage)
