##### Reference no: EM131034410

You are stuck on Mars (if you would like, you can imagine you are Matt Damon).

Assume that you are growing potatoes in a rectangular airlock attached to the habitat.

Determine the optimal location of three plutonium core heaters buried in the ground inside the airlock to maximize the number of potato plants that you can grow. Your ability to survive depends on your PDE numerical solution skills! Assume the following:

The following is in the attached document.

1) A project summary detailing your modeling assumptions and key results.

2) The temperature profile (both day and night) inside the airlock before adding the plutonium core heaters.

3) The temperature profile after adding the plutonium cores.

4) The location of the three plutonium heaters with an explanation of your choices.

5) The number of potato plants that can grow given the stated conditions.

6) The MATLAB code used to arrive at the solution with sufficient comments explaining the code and formulatio

#### Estimate the coefficient of permeability for a uniform sand

A grain-size analysis for a uniform sand in a loose state indicated that the soil particle diameter corresponding to 10% passing on the grain-size distribution curve is 0.18 mm. Estimate the coefficient of permeability.

#### The development of complex algorithms that can mine mounds

The development of complex algorithms that can mine mounds of data that have been collected from people and digital devices have led to the adoption of data mining by most businesses as a means of understanding their customers better than before

#### Determine the volume of traffic across the bridge

A bridge has been constructed between the mainland and anisland. The total cost (excluding toll) to travel across thebridge is expressed as C=50+0.5V, where V is the number of veh/dayand C is the cost/vehicle in cents. The demand for travelacross the..
