PETE 2060 – Computing in Petroleum Engineering Homework 1 Due date 09 14 2010 Note. Please do not forget to improve the layout of the spreadsheets. Problem 1. (Excel) Devise a test to demonstrate the validity of the following common trigonometric formulae. What values of A and B should be used to test these functions thoroughly? (a) ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( B Sin A Cos B Cos A Sin B A Sin (b) ) 2 ( 2 1 2 1 ) ( 2 A Cos A Sin Note. In excel, ) ( 2 A Sin should be entered as =(sin(A))^2. This causes sin(A) to be evaluated first and then Problem 2. (Excel) A fairly common shape for a dry-solids storage bin (such as cements or proppants) is a cylindrical silo with a conical section at the base where the product is removed. To calculate the volume of the contents, you use the formula for a cone, as long as the height of the product, h, is less than the height of the conical section h con : h r V 2 3 1 if h< h con h con θ θ R
