If possible, find an explicit solution. (b) Tritium, 3H, is an isotope of hydrogen that is sometimes used as a biochemical tracer. Suppose that 100 mg of 3H decays to 80 mg in 4 hours. Determine the half-life of 3H. Hint: The mathematical model is the exponential equation NI 2 ~AN, where N represents the mass of remaining nuclei. The half-time T% of 3H is the amount of time required for 50% of 3H to decay and T; = 19:2 2 3.(15 points) Find the solution to the following initial value problem and indicate the interval of existence I 1 cc +$cost = —2—sin2t, 93(0) 2 1. 4.(15 points) A tank contains 100 gal of pure water. At time zero, a salt—water solution containing 0.21b of salt per gal enters the tank at a rate of 3 gal per minute. Simultaneously, a drain is opened at the bottom of the tank allowing the salt solution to leave the tank at 3 gal per minute. Assume that the solution in the tank is kept perfectly mixed at all times. Find the salt content in the tank at any time t. ‘ Hint: Write down a mathematical model by expressing the rate of change of the amount of salt in the tank both as a derivative and as a difference between rate in and rate out. Find the solution for this mathematical model. 5.(20 points) (a) Verify if the following initial value problem I t 2 0 =0 3: :r 1, 117() is guaranteed a unique solution by the hypotheses of the uniqueness theorem of solu- tions for ODEs. (b) Suppose that :c is a solution to the initial value problem , cps—x 1 Show that O < $(t) < l for all t for which :0 is defined. 6.(20 points) Consider the following autonomous equation I y = (y+1)(y2-9). (1) Perform a qualitative analysis of the solutions to (1) using the graph of f , the phase line information and the sketch of the equilibrium and non—equilibrium solutions in ty-plane. ...
