Here is HW #2 assigned on January 20th and due on the 27th:

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?

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 22nd. Note, for problem 2.29, that you can use van’t Hoff’s law (eqn 2.147 or 3.1) and you 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.

Check out Wolfram Alpha, a computational engine that can be used to help you solve a variety of engineering and math problems. Here is the link http://www.wolframalpha.com.

An example, suppose you need to find the value of B which satisfies this equation, (1 – B) = 0.00309 M^2 u^4 B^4, with M = 4.18 and u = 2.11, when entered into Wolfram Alpha [ (1 – B) = 0.00309*M^2*u^4*B^4, M=4.18, u=2.11, find B ], we find that B = 0.717.

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:

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