homework2Here is HW #2 due on January 23rd:

1. In your book work problems 2, 5, 13, and 14 from Chapter 3
2. MoviPrep is a low-volume colonoscopy prep that is proven to provide a clear view of the entire colon, allowing your doctor to detect abnormal growths during the colonoscopy procedure. Each liter of a MoviPrep solution contains in millimoles the following components :

PEG 3350 (polyethylene glycol, does not dissociate) 29.6
NaCl 45.6
Na2SO4 52.8
KCl 14.2
NaAscorbate (C6H7O6Na) 29.8

At 37oC, what is the osmotic pressure of this solution in mmHg?

monkey For HW 1 work the following problems from Chapter 2 of your book; 2.11, 2.19, 2.29 , 2.36, 2.39. These problems are due on January 20th. Note, for problem 2.29, that you can use van’t Hoff’s law (eqn 2.147 or 3.1) and you can make an a priori prediction of the data since osmotic P = RT C, for the other 2 cases using the virial expression that is given, you will need to do a nonlinear regression to find B and then B and C. In case you don’t have the book, here are these problems in a Word file, chap2problems

nonlinearregressionHere is an example of a nonlinear regression using Matlab, nonlinearregressionjan062016 . Also, here is a Word document (USEFUL NUMERICAL METHODS) that shows 8 examples on how to use Matlab to solve various types of problems that you will encounter during this course. Also, here is a powerpoint file showing the solution graphs for these examples, matlabexamples_graphs. Specifically, these examples show:

  1. example 1.9: a comparing a model equation to experimental data
  2. example 1.10: linear regression of experimental data
  3. example 1.11: linear regression of experimental data with a zero intercept
  4. example 1.12: non-linear regression of experimental data
  5. example 1.13: integration of a function
  6. example 1.14: solving a 1st order ordinary differential equation
  7. example 1.15: solving a 2nd order ordinary differential equation
  8. example 1.16: finding the zero of a function of one variable, the root finder
