Unformatted text preview: NAME: .................................................................. AME 150 - Final Exam 05/04/06 Closed book, closed notes, no calculator. Problem 1. (30 points) The ideal gas law relates pressure P (kPa), volume V (L), and absolute temperature T (K) through the equation PV = nRT, where n is the number of moles and R = 8 . 314 L kPa/ ( mol K ) is the universal gas constant. Write a MATLAB script that calculates pressure P as two moles of gas are compressed from 10 L to 1 L at constant temperature T = 300 K and plots pressure vs. volume on a loglog plot using 900 data points and a solid line with a width of 3 pixels. The plot must have a title and axes appropriately labelled. Problem 2. (50 points) Consider a function, given by the following formula p ( x ) = ( a if | x | x 0 if | x | > x , where x = 1. (a) (10 points) What must be the value of the constant a for p ( x ) to be the probability density function? Justify your answer. Write MATLAB statements that produce a vector of 100 x values from x 1 = 2 to x 2 = +2 and a corresponding vector of 100 p ( x ) function values (b) (20 points) using only for loop and if-else constructs (c) (20 points) using only vector syntax and logical arrays Problem 3. (40 points) The script file and MATLAB functions seed and random1 given...
