HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 4
EGM 3344
Root finding
Due:
Wednesday, 10/6.
Problems from Chapra book chapters 5 through 6
For all of these problems, feel free to use a simple Matlab program to calculate function values
(like using a calculator) when the indicated approach is by hand.
Problem
Approach
Comments
5.8
Hand
Make the plot in part (a) using Matlab and use the plot to
estimate an initial guess for the root. Do the rest of the problem
by hand starting with a lower guess of 0.5 and upper guess of 2.
Put your intermediate results in a table like in the answers below.
5.8
Matlab
Repeat part (b) and (c) problem 5.8 but write two short Matlab
programs (one for bisection and one for false position) to
perform all the calculations. Output your intermediate results to
a table like in the answers below.
5.13
Matlab
Use or modify the Matlab bisection program you wrote for
problem 5.8 to solve this problem.
