MA 36600 MIDTERM #1 REVIEW 3 § 2.3: Modeling with First Order Equations. Mixing Problems: Say that we have a tank containing a volume V gal of a certain liquid. A concentration c lbs/gal of a certain substance flows in at a constant rate r gal/min, and a faucet is opened at the bottom of the tank so that the total amount of liquid in the tank remains constant. Let Q = Q ( t ) denote the amount in lbs of this substance at time t , where Q (0) = Q 0 . Concentration of Substance Rate of Flow Flowing In c lbs/gal r gal/min Flowing Out Q ( t ) /V lbs/gal r gal/min The rate of change of the quantity of the substance in the solution is the di ff erence of the rate which flows in and the rate which flows out. This gives the following initial value problem: dQ dt + r V Q = c r, Q (0) = Q 0 . Interest Rate Problems: Say that we have an account where money accrues interest compounded continuously at an annual rate r , and that deposits are also made at a constant rate k per year. Let S = S ( t ) denote the amount of money in the account at t

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
