  1. 4-039-S-FallingDarts

    21 Jan 2022 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob Paul Duncan

    Most projectile motion and free fall models are based on the assumption that gravity is the only force acting on the object. Here we develop, solve, and analyze a second order nonhomogeneous differential equation model for free fall which incorporates air resistance. Students will solve the model...

  2. 1-102C-S-CancerGrowth

    19 Jan 2022 | | Contributor(s):: Jennie D'Ambroise

    This module guides students in the use of differential equation models to predict cancer growth and study treatment outcomes. Several classical models for cancer growth are presented including exponential, power law, Bertalanffy, logistic, and Gompertz. Students solve first-order differential...

    10 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy Pennings

    As captain of a barge, you need to determine how fast to transportyour barge up river against the current in order to minimize the expended energy.Since expended energy is proportional to the force, and since the force is proportional to the speed, traveling too fast is inefficient. However, if...
