27 Jul 2021  Modeling Scenarios  Contributor(s):: Blain Patterson
Lanchester's laws are used to calculate the relative strengths of military forces. The Lanchester equations are differential equations describing the time dependence of two armies' strengths A and B as a function of time, with the function depending only on A and B. In this project, you...

3076SCircuitBuilding
27 Jul 2021  Modeling Scenarios  Contributor(s):: Chiu Choi
In this project students will establish a mathematical model for an electric circuit as a secondorder ordinary differential equation with constant coefficients. They will derive the initial conditions for this differential equation by using circuit laws. They will obtain its closedform solution...
