Homework 2 Geog 210a Due Date: Oct. 14, 2011 Problems from the text : 2.9.10, 3.1.13, 3.1.14, 3.1.19, 3.2.11, 3.2.13, 3.2.15, 3.2.25, 3.3.5 (use Matlab to make the plot and approximate the constants), 3.4.5, 3.4.7, 3.4.10, 3.4.13, 3.4.19, 3.5.1, 3.5.2, 3.5.3, 3.5.7, 3.5.11, 3.5.14 DV Problem : 1. You are doing an experiment growing copepods (a genus of zooplankton) in a big beaker (or maybe a fish tank, so they can swim around). On day zero, you put a group of copepods, whose total combined mass is 1 g, into the tank. You have already found that the average weight of one copepod is 0.01 g. Every day you pour a sizable container of “copepod chow” into the tank, so they always have enough food to eat. You are guessing that the plankton’s population growth is not limited by food supply, but is instead simply expanding at some rate set by their intrinsic growth and reproductive rates. One of your experimental goals is to test this idea. Every day you strain out all the water, weigh the copepod mass, and then put them back in the
