Objectives ± Understand what roots problems are and where they occur in engineering and science. ± Know how to determine a root graphically. ± Know how to solve a roots problem with the bisection method. EGR 102 Lecture 8 2
Roots ± “Roots” problems occur when some function f can be written in terms of one or more dependent variables x, where the solutions to f(x)=0yields the solution to the problem. ± These problems often occur when a design problem presents an implicit equation for a quired parameter required parameter.

Roots EGR 102 Lecture 8 6
Graphical Methods A simple method for obtaining an estimate of the root of the equation =0 is to make a plot of the function f(x)0 is to make a plot of the function and observe where it crosses the x-axis. Graphing the function can also indicate here roots may be and where some where roots may be and where some root-finding methods may fail: a) Same sign, no roots ifferent sign one root b) Different sign, one root c) Same sign, two roots d) Different sign, three roots EGR 102 Lecture 8 7
