Unformatted text preview: ASE 311 Engineering computation, Fall 2009, Homework 8 Due: Friday, October 30, 2:00 PM in the lecture room JGB 2.216 Report all work, including any m-files you have written. You may also find the command diary useful in recording your MATLAB session. Please write clearly and be sure to label for which problem each solution is. Please, staple Part I and Part II separately and make sure that your name is written on both parts. Part I 1. [Chapra 14.20] The following data quantifies the relationship between then thinking and braking components when stopping an automobile. Using MATLAB , plot the data and develop best-fit equations for both the thinking and braking components in terms of the speed. Apply these to estimate the total distance (in feet) for stopping a car travelling at 65mph. Speed (km/h) 30 45 60 75 90 120 Thinking (m) 5.6 8.5 11.1 14.5 16.7 22.4 Braking (m) 5.0 12.3 21.0 32.9 47.6 84.7 2. Find the quadratic polynomial passing through the points ( u1D465 1 , u1D466...
