ChEn 2001, Homework #4 Due Monday, October 5, 2009 Problem 1. Consider a series of N dryers operating in series to remove the water from a wood product.

Make a plot of the total amount of water removed as a function of the number of dryers N for N = 1:10. If we had infinitely many dryers, what fraction of the original water is removed? There are two options to solve this problem: (i) You can determine the exact result for this sum, probably with the help of a mathematical handbook. (ii) You can make a numerical calculation to large values of N . If you do method (ii), you must get the first two significant digits of the exact result. Problem 2 (Murphy 2.61).
