Assignment #1 (Mar 1 8 , 2009) ME4906 Numerical Methods for Product Analysis (Deadline for submission: 01 April 2009, 1 0 :00pm) 1. The temperature T of a rod depends on time (t) and position (x) and can be described as a function of t and x: t n e x n t x T 2 2 4 ) sin( ) , ( π = , where n is a positive integer. (a) Calculate t T / ; (b) Calculate 2 2 / x T ; (c) Calculate 2 2 4 x T t T . 2. The temperature T of a rod at time t=0 second and t=0.02 second are tabulated below, where x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 , x 5 , x 6 label several points in the rod. x 1 =0 x 2 =0.2 x 3 =0.4 x 4 =0.6 x 5 =0.8 x 6 =1.0 t=0 0.0 0.64 0.96 0.96 0.64 0.0 t=0.02 0.0 0.48 0.80 0.80 0.48 0.0 (a) Use forward difference method to calculate

(c) Verify by substitution of the results obtained in (a) and (b) that the temperatures listed in the table are solutions to the heat transfer equation 2 2 x T t T = . 3. Calculate the first derivative of f(x)=sin(x) at x= /4 using the centre difference scheme with intervals h=0.1, 0.01, 0.005, and 0.002. Identify the order of accuracy of the centre difference scheme....
