Computational Biology 03-310, Spring 2004R. F. MurphyPage 1 of 1Problem C3Modeling compartmental systemsDue: April 30, 2004 (accepted without penalty until May 11, 2004)In this assignment we will solve simple compartmental systems using MAPLE. Consider the followingcompartmental system (system 1)in which f21is the rate constant for transfer to compartment 2 from 1 and f12is the rate constant for transferto compartment 1 from 2. Let q1(t) and q2(t) be the amounts of material at time t in compartments 1 and 2,respectively, and let q1(0)=i1and q2(0)=i2.Questions (Total of 40 points)Submit written/printed answers (a Word file containing both text and copies of plots is acceptable in placeof written/printed answers) and an Maple workbook via the dropbox.1.What is the timescale of system 1?2.Using MAPLE, enter the differential equations describingsystem 1without substituting values for theconstants. Solve the set of equations using the dsolveprocedure. Print or submit your mapleworksheet.
