ChBE 521 Homework 5 due Wednesday, October 12 1. Beers 3.A.2 2. Beers 3.A.3 3. Beers 3.B.4 4. Consider the boundary value problem D d 2 c dx 2 = 0 , c (0) = c (1) = 0 . The eigenvalues for this equation are λ n = - n 2 π 2 , n = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . and the eigenfunctions are φ n ( x ) = 2 sin( nπx ) , n = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . . In other words, D d 2 φ n dx 2 = λ n φ n , φ n (0) = φ n (1) = 0 . (a) How do the numerically calculated eignvalues and eigenvectors com- pare with these results? To calculate the eigenvalues and eigenvec- tors, apply finite differences to the problem? (b) Suggest how one can use the eigenvalues and eigenvectors (eigenfunc- tions) to solve the problem D d 2 c dx 2 = f ( x

Suppose you are trying to fit the equation y = θ 1 x 1 + θ 2 x 2 to data where the variables x 1 and x 2 are the experimental inputs (i.e. you control them) and y is the output (i.e. determined by x 1 and x 2 ). (a) How would you assign confidence intervals to your estimates for θ 1 and θ 2 ? (b) How would you choose values for x 1 and x 2 to get the most accurate estimates for θ 1 and θ 2 . Justify your answer. 6. Determine for what values of c , if any, x 2 + y 2 + z 2 ≥ c ( xy + yz + zx ) 1...

    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.
