A New Set of Problems to Work…From the Early Days of Personal Computers

What Next? We just completed working the ten problems from the 1997 ASEE workshop.  We worked a variety of problems that had solutions with other software packages such as Microsoft Excel, MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple and Polymath.  Please compare and let me know what you think.  Now, let’s look at the following journal article for a […]

Fitting Polynomials and Correlation Equations to Vapor Pressure Data – Solution

Solve the problem: 1. Fit the Data to a Polynomial Below is the program output in IPython with values for the various data fits. It is a little confusing, but now you know why in the earlier post that the polynomial coefficients are ‘backwards’.   You see the polynomial defined as p = 0.0007449*x3 + 0.03945*x2 […]

Steady-State Material Balances on a Separation Train – Solution

Solve the problem: Execute the script and let’s see what the molar flow rates of D_1, D_2, B_1 and B_2 are?  I’m on the edge of my seat…however, I have been working for a while and kinda need to go, if you know what I mean, but I digress, let’s see it. Molar Flow Rates […]

Solving Differential Algebraic Equations – Solution

Solve the problem: So, let’s execute the program we developed in the last post and see how the concentration changes with time and if we believe what the computer is telling us.  If you need a refresher for how to execute a program script in IPython, go to IPython documentation webpage.  It has a tremendous […]
