EEL 3657 Homework # 1 – Assigned Tue Jan 25 - Due Mon Jan 31 Covers LDEs, modeling of simple physical systems, Laplace transforms. Assume/discover any constants, parameters, or initial conditions that you feel might help toward a good grade. Your notes and the textbook should be ample material to solve these problems. 1. A rocket is shot straight up. During initial stages of flight, it has an acceleration of 7t 2 ms . The engine cuts off at t = 10s. How high will the rocket go? 2. A copper ball is heated to 100 degrees Centigrade. Then at time t = 0, it is placed in water which is maintained at 30 degrees Centigrade. At the end of 3 minutes, the temperature of the ball is reduced to 70 degrees Centigrade. Find the time at
