The goal of this project is to set up and numerically solve a first-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation (ODE) system of three equations in three unknowns that models beer bubbles that form at the bottom of a glass and rise to the top.  The system solution is then used to verify the model via data collected from a bubble rising in a glass of beer.
