Chapter 2.7: Do-While and For Loops 1 Next Slide Previous Slide CO 2 balances to determine the magnitude of the greenhouse effect (very complex) CO 2 emissions from anthropogenic sources e.g. Power plants, cars, fires non-anthropogenic sources e.g. Fires, biodegradation, animals CO 2 sequestration by oceans and plants. "half-life" = time to reduce the CO 2 concentration by half if no sources of CO 2 existed . A very simple concept that omits a lot of detail! Example: The half-life of CO 2 in the atmosphere

Unformatted text preview: Do-While and For Loops 3 Next Slide Previous Slide Given a value for half-life we can calculate the corresponding decay constant, k. eqn6 ) . ln( ln / , , kt 5 C C 2 1 i CO f CO 2 2-= = 7 eqn 2 / 1 ) 5 . ln( t k-= eqn8 ) ( , e C t C kt i CO CO 2 2-= Now, we let t f =t, and solve for the CO 2 concentration as a function of k and time, t. The model: calculating the half-life constant Chapter 2.7: Do-While and For Loops 4 Next Slide Previous Slide Determining the half life effect on CO 2 concentration. Using the model enter half-life strart do-while calculate decay constant print results in for-loop end do-while repeat for different half-life, if desired use for-loop to calculate CO 2 value from 0 to 80 years, in 5 year increments co2_half_life_loop.cpp...
