2.29: Numerical Fluid Mechanics Quiz 1 MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 02139 2.29 NUMERICAL FLUID MECHANICS— SPRING 2007 Quiz 1 Time 1 hour and 15 min, Totally 25 points Thursday 11 a.m. 03/22/07, Focused on Lecture 1 to 11 Problem 1 (6 points): State which of the following statements are true and which are false. You do not have to justify your answer. 1. The number of significant digits achievable by a specific floating point representation 2. If , then the relative error of f is more sensitive to relative error of x, compared to relative error of y. 3. Bi-section method is capable of predicting the maximum number of iterations required for a specific error level ahead in time. 4. If the Newton-Raphson’s method converges for a root finding problem, then the absolute error in each step will be less than the square of absolute error in previous step. 5.
