  1. Potential Scenario Ideas : climate change: temperature, CO2, and some other factor in a feedback loop?

    17 Jan 2022 | Contributor(s):: Andrew M Ross

    Looking at graphs of atmospheric CO2 and global average temperature, such as this famous one from "An Inconvenient Truth" https://smallpond.ca/jim/ref/inconvenientTruth/full/00_22_49.jpgor the 2nd graph on this...

  2. 1-088-S-RoomTemperature

    15 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand

    Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...

  3. 1-114-S-EarthClimate

    09 Dec 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Terrance Pendleton

    In this modeling scenario, we investigate the Earth's climate using a zero-dimensional energy balance model. Energy balance models are climate models that try to predict the average surface temperature of the Earth from solar radiation, emission of radiation to outer space, and Earth's...

  4. 7-020-S-ThermometerInVaryingTempStream

    22 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Norman Loney

    We present a differential equation model for the temperature of a mercury thermometer which is sitting in a stream of water whose temperature oscillates. We suggest a solving strategy which uses Laplace Transforms.

  5. 1-071-S-NewtonWatsonTimeOfDeath

    28 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    Sherlock Holmes determines the time of death for a body found on a street in London and we need to reproduce his astute analysis.

  6. 1-043-S-CoolingUpAndDown

    26 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We consider modeling the attempt of an air conditioner to cool a room to a ``constant'' temperature.

  8. 1981-Berresford, Geoffrey C. - Differential Equations and Root Cellars

    25 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Geoffrey C. Berresford

    Berresford, Geoffrey C. 1981. Differential Equations and Root Cellars.  UMAP Unit 554. 23 pp. 23 pp. Available from http://www.comap.com.This is a classic module from UMAP in which the heat equation in one dimension is fully developed by using the standard technique of measuring the heat...

  9. 2004-Denny, J. K. and C. A. Yackel - Temperature Models for Ware Hall.

    Denny, J. K. and C. A. Yackel. 2004.  Temperature Models for Ware Hall. The College Mathematic Journal. 35(3): 162-170.See - http://people.kzoo.edu/barth/math280/articles/hvac.pdf .This paper offers some very nice extended models for cooling off a new office area for a mathematics...

  10. 1-045-S-TimeOfDeath

    02 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    Students are asked to determine the time of death given both environmental temperature situations and two observations of body temperature under several different circumstances.

  11. 1-031-S-CoolIt

    02 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer data on the temperature of water in a beaker which resides in a room of constant temperature and also in an environment of nonconstant temperature. Students are encouraged to consider both empirical and analytic modeling approaches. We offer additional data sets in Excel spreadsheets...
