Numerical Analysis in Engineering ME 140A, Fall 2008 Midterm #1 Solution By: Mohamad M. Nasr-Azadani [email protected] December 3, 2008 Problem 1 a) Since h = h ( r ) (only a function of r ), volume of the given shape can be found as V = Z Z A h ( r ) dA (1) V = Z R 0 h ( r )2 πrdr (2) Note that “ dV = h ( r )2 πrdr ” is the differential volume of a cylinder with radius r , thickness dr and height h ( r ) (see figure 1). b) Total mass of the pollutant in the reservoir can be found by M = Z Z Z V c ( r ) dV (3) M = Z R 0 c ( r ) h ( r )2 πrdr (4) Note that in equation (4), “ dM = c ( r ) h ( r )2 πrdr ” is the differential mass of the pollutant in the differential volume (see figure 1). 1

### 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.
