# ASSIGINMENT 1

ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS This is a group assignment (3 members) which has to be submitted on 19/10/2012. (Standardize all of the calculation up to 4 decimal points). QUESTIONS 1 1. Determine the lowest positive root of f(x) = (x - 4)2 - 3; Perform the computation to a >= 0.5%. (a) Graphically. (b) Using false-position (initial guesses of 2 and 4) (c) Using the Newton-Raphson method (xi =3). (d) Using the secant method (five iteration, xi-1 = 0.5 and xi = 1). (20 marks) QUESTION 2 When trying to find the acidity of calcium carbonate in sulphuric acid, researcher has obtained the following equation; A(C) = C3 +3.5C2 40 Where, C is the concentration of hydroxonium ion. Find the concentration of the hydroxonium ion in saturated solution (acidity is equals zero) using following method. Estimate the initial concentration of the ion in range of 2 to 5 mg/L. The acceptable concentration must have approximate percent relative error less than 2%. Standardize all of the calculation up to 4 decimal points. i) ii) iii) Bisection method MATLAB (graphically) Compare both (i and ii) results

Note Question 2 i) should be presented as a manual calculation while Question 2 ii) should be presented as MATLAB print out. (15 marks)
