Math 138 – Fall 2011 Assignment 4 Due Friday October 14 (in the drop box by 12 noon) Hand in the following: 1. Consider the complex number z = x + iy where i is the imaginary unit (a constant). Recall that we can rewrite this in polar form as z ( θ ) = r cos θ + ir sin θ . For the following, assume θ and z are the only variables. (a) Compute dz . (b) Based on part a) create a differential equation dz = f ( z ). That is, find the function f ( z ). (c) Solve the DE from part b) by using an initial condition for z (0) according to the definition of z ( θ ). (d) Deduce Euler’s identity e = cos θ + i sin θ . 2. Solve the IVP y 00 = yy 0 with y (0) = 1 ,y 0 (0) = 1. (Note this is a second order DE but we will convert it to first order. During the process you should end up with two arbitrary constants; hence the two initial conditions. Fear not, the following hints will help you along the way.) Hint 1: Assume x can be written as a function of

Hint 2: Try a substitution u = x (once youve manipulated the DE). 3. A tank initially contains 5 kg of salt dissolved in 100 L of water. A solution with a salt concentration of 0.4 kg/L is added at a rate of 5 L/min. The solution is kept mixed and is drained from the tank at the same rate. If y ( t ) is the amount of salt in the tank (in kg) after t minutes, write down the dierential equation satised by y . Solve this dierential equation to nd the amount of salt: (a) after t minutes (b) after 30 minutes (c) after a suciently long time 2...
