Please make sure that pages are numbered, and the questions are in order. Question 1. Consider the CSTR dynamics studied in Homework 2. For certain values of steady state and input parameters, the matrix A is given by 0 13 8 4 4 9 8 4 8 6 12 8 0 5 0 - 4 (a) What is the characteristic equation for this matrix? (5 pts) (b) Solve the characteristic equation to obtain the roots (eigenvalues) of the matrix. Verify your results using the ’eig’ function in MATLAB. (5 pts) (c) Based on the eigenvalues, discuss the stability of the system. (5 pts) (d) For a different set of steady state and input parameters, one eigenvalue of the A is determined to be zero. What type of an output response would you expect, and why? (5 pts) Question 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
