Unformatted text preview: 18.03 PS2 SolutionsSpring 09 Part B: [1. 8pts = 2 + 1 + 3 + 2]; [2. 14pts = 2 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 2 + 2]; [3. 4pts = 2 + 2]; [4. 6pts = 5 + 1] 1a. y = 1, y 1 = 1 + 1 /n , y 2 = (1 + 1 /n ) 2 . For k 0, y k +1 = y k + (1 /n ) y k = (1 + 1 /n ) y k . So y k = (1 + 1 /n ) k and the n th Euler approximation is y n = (1 + 1 /n ) n 1b. y > 0, so the approximation is smaller than the exact value. 1c. The table shows that E . 24 h when h 1 / 4.

In a small amount of time t , measured in hours, the fraction of air in the building thats heated by the furnace is t/ 2. Before accounting for the loss of heat to the outside, the new average temperature in the building is t 2 90 + parenleftbigg 1- t 2 parenrightbigg T = T + t 2 (90- T ) , so T = t 2 (90- T ) and T t = 1 2 (90- T ) ....
