08.03.1 Chapter 08.03 Runge-Kutta 2nd Order Method for Ordinary Differential Equations-More Examples Civil Engineering Example 1 A polluted lake has an initial concentration of a bacteria of 3 7 parts/m 10 , while the acceptable level is only 3 6 parts/m 10 5 . The concentration of the bacteria will reduce as fresh water enters the lake. The differential equation that governs the concentration C of the pollutant as a function of time (in weeks) is given by 7 10 ) 0 ( , 0 06 . 0 C C dt dC Using Runge-Kutta 2 nd order method and a step size of 3.5 weeks, find the concentration of the pollutant after 7 weeks.
