EAB2113/EBB2143 NUMETRICAL/COMPUTATIONAL METHODS JULY 2009 SEMESTER MATLAB ASSIGNMENT/TEST QUESTIONS Q1 . Develop an M-file to implement the bisection method. Using this program solve the following problem. The velocity of falling parachutist is given as ) 1 ( ) ( ) / ( t m c e c gm t v - - = . Where ) ( t v = velocity of parachutist = s m / 40 , g = gravitational constant = 2 / 8 . 9 s m , m = the mass of the parachutist = kg 1 . 68 . Find the drag coefficient, c at the time 10 = t seconds using the initial bracket of the root as [13, 16] and iterate until 001 . 0 a ε %. Q2 . Develop an M-file to implement the falseposition method. Using this program solve the following problem. The velocity of falling parachutist is given as ) 1 ( ) ( ) / ( t m c e c gm t v - - = . Where ) ( t v = velocity of parachutist = s m / 40 , g = gravitational constant = 2 / 8 . 9 s m , m = the mass of the parachutist = kg 1 . 68 . Find the drag coefficient, c at the time 10 = t seconds using the initial bracket of the root as [13, 16] and iterate until 001 . 0 a ε %. Q3 . Locate the root of x x x f - = ) sin( 2 ) ( (a) Using the MATLAB function fzero with an initial guess of 2 0 = x . (b) Using Newton-Raphson method by writing a function M-file. Use an initial guess of 5 . 0 0 = x and iterate until 001 . 0 a ε %.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
