# What are the types of discontinuity of function?

## What are the types of discontinuity of function?

There are two types of discontinuities: removable and non-removable. Then there are two types of non-removable discontinuities: jump or infinite discontinuities. Removable discontinuities are also known as holes. They occur when factors can be algebraically removed or canceled from rational functions.

## What are the 6 discontinuities?

Quick Overview

• Discontinuities can be classified as jump, infinite, removable, endpoint, or mixed.
• Removable discontinuities are characterized by the fact that the limit exists.
• Removable discontinuities can be “fixed” by re-defining the function.

What is discontinuity in pre calc?

A point of discontinuity occurs when a number is both a zero of the numerator and denominator. Since is a zero for both the numerator and denominator, there is a point of discontinuity there.

### What are the types of discontinuities and how do you find them?

Point/removable discontinuity is when the two-sided limit exists, but isn’t equal to the function’s value. Jump discontinuity is when the two-sided limit doesn’t exist because the one-sided limits aren’t equal. Asymptotic/infinite discontinuity is when the two-sided limit doesn’t exist because it’s unbounded.

### What is removable and nonremovable discontinuity?

Explanation: Geometrically, a removable discontinuity is a hole in the graph of f . A non-removable discontinuity is any other kind of discontinuity. (Often jump or infinite discontinuities.)

What is Bolan discontinuity?

The Lehmann discontinuity is an abrupt increase of P-wave and S-wave velocities at the depth of 220 km (140 mi), discovered by seismologist Inge Lehmann. The thickness is 220 km. It appears beneath continents, but not usually beneath oceans, and does not readily appear in globally averaged studies.

## What is oscillatory discontinuity?

An oscillating discontinuity exists when the values of the function appear to be approaching two or more values simultaneously. A standard example of this situation is the function f(x)=sin(1x), pictured below.

## What is the difference between Mohra week discontinuity and Gutenberg discontinuity?

1. Mohorovicic discontinuity marks the boundary between the upper mantle and the crust while the Gutenberg discontinuity marks the boundary between the lower mantle and outer core.

What do you mean by Moho discontinuity?

The Moho is the boundary between the crust and the mantle in the earth. This is a depth where seismic waves change velocity and there is also a change in chemical composition. Also termed the Mohorovicic’ discontinuity after the Croatian seismologist Andrija Mohorovicic’ (1857-1936) who discovered it.

### What are Moho and Gutenberg?

Moho Discontinuity is the boundary between crust and mantle and Gutenberg Discontinuity is the boundary between mantle and core.

Where is Gutenberg discontinuity found?

The mantle–core boundary is the Gutenberg discontinuity at a depth of about 2,800 kilometres. The outer core is thought to be liquid because shear waves do not pass through it.

## What is Mohorovičić and Gutenberg discontinuity?

Mohorovicic Discontinuity: This is the transition zone between the crust and the mantle. Repetti Discontinuity: This separates the upper mantle from the lower mantle. Gutenberg Discontinuity: This is the transition zone between the lower mantle and the outer core.
