An object moves in simple harmonic motion with period 8 minutes and amplitude 16 m. At time \(t = 0\) minutes, its displacement d from rest is 0 m, and initially it moves in a positive direction. Give the equation modeling the displacement d as a function of time f.

Step 1 Equation modeling the diplacement d as function of time = A sin wt where A = amplitude and time period = 2pi//w Step 2 \(A = amplitude = 16 m\) \(Period = 8 minutes = 8 \times 60 = 480 seconds = 2\pi/w\) Hence, \(w = 2pi/480 = \pi/240\) Step 3 Hence, \(d = 16sin(\pi t/240)\)

A common assumption in modeling drug assimilation is that the blood volume in a person is a single compartment that behaves like a stirred tank. Suppose the blood volume is a four-liter tank that initially has a zero concentration of a particular drug. At time \(\displaystyle{t}={0}\), an intravenous line is inserted into a vein (into the tank) that carries a drug solution with a concentration of 500 mg/L. The inflow rate is 0.06 L/min. Assume the drug is quickly mixed thoroughly in the blood and that the volume of blood remains constant. a. Write an initial value problem that models the mass of the drug in the blood, for \(\displaystyle{t}\ \geq\ {0}\). Solve the initial value problem, and graph both the mass of the drug and the concentration of the drug. c. What is the steady-state mass of the drug in the blood? d. After how many minutes does the drug mass reach 90% of its steady-state level?

One type of Iodine disintegrates continuously at a constant rate of \(\displaystyle{8.6}\%\) per day.
Suppose the original amount, \(\displaystyle{P}_{{0}}\), is 10 grams, and let t be measured in days.
Because the Iodine is decaying continuously at a constant rate, we use the model \(\displaystyle{P}={P}_{{0}}{e}^{k}{t}\) for the decay equation, where k is the rate of continuous decay.
Using the given information, write the decay equation for this type of Iodine.
Use your equation to determine the half-life ofthis type of Fodine, That is, find ‘out how many days it will take for half of the original amount to be left. Show an algebraic solution using logs.

Two basketball players are essentially equal in all respects. In particular, by jumping they can raise their centers of mass the same vertical distance, H. The first player,Arabella, wishes to shoot over the second player, Boris, and forthis she needs to be as high above Boris as possible. Arabella Jumps at time t=0, and Boris jumps later, at time \(\displaystyle{t}_{{R}}\)(his reaction time). Assume that Arabella has not yet reached her maximum height when Boris jumps.
Part A.) Find the vertical displacement \(\displaystyle{D}{\left({t}\right)}={h}_{{A}}{\left({t}\right)}-{h}_{{B}}{\left({t}\right)}\), as a function of time for the interval \(\displaystyle{0}{<}{t}{<}{t}_{{R}}\), where \(\displaystyle{h}_{{A}}{\left({t}\right)}\) is the height of the raised hands of Arabella, while \(\displaystyle{h}_{{B}}{\left({t}\right)}\) is the height of the raised hands of Boris. (Express thevertical displacement in terms of H,g,and t.)
Part B.) Find the vertical displacement D(t) between the raised hands of the two players for the time period after Boris has jumped (\(\displaystyle{t}{>}{t}_{{R}}\)) but before Arabella has landed. (Express youranswer in terms of t,\(\displaystyle{t}_{{R}}\), g,and H)
Part C.) What advice would you give Arabella To minimize the chance of her shot being blocked?
