When two chemicals A and B are combined a compound C is formed. The resulting second-order reaction between the two chemicals is modeled by the differential equation ) 40 )( 250 ( X X k dt dX where ) ( t X denotes the number of grams of the compound C present at time t . Determine ) ( t X if it is known that 0 ) 0 ( X (g) and 30 ) 10 ( X (g). 4. Scientists estimate the arrival times of tsunamis (seismic ocean waves) based on the point of origin P and ocean depths. The speed of a tsunami in miles per hour is approximately d 15 , where d is the ocean depth in feet. Let ) ( x f be the ocean depth x miles from P (in the direction of the coast). The time T required for the tsunami to travel
