Unformatted text preview: temperature. Using this for 2 T in the original expression to find a better value of T ∆ gives the same T ∆ to eight figures, and further, and further iterations are not worth – while. A numerical program used to find roots of the quartic equation returns a value for T ∆ that differed from that found above in the eighth place; this, of course, is more precision than is warranted in this problem....

    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.

    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.
