Creating a good model for a situation often begins with deciding what kind of function to use. An appropriate model can depend on very qualitative considerations, such as the general shape of the graph. What sort of function has the right shape to describe the process we want to model? Should it be increasing or decreasing, or some combination of both? Is the slope constant or is it changing? In Examples 2.
Forrest leaves his house to go to school. For each of the following situations, sketch a possible graph of Forrest's distance from home as a function of time. Forrest walks at a constant speed until he reaches the bus stop; then he waits there until the bus arrives.
Forrest walks at a constant speed until he reaches the bus stop, waits there until the bus arrives, and then the bus drives him to school at a constant speed. It begins at the origin because at the instant Forrest leaves the house, his distance from home is 0. The graph begins like the graph in part a. The MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 begins like the graph 2 Da Beat Chyall - Kris Kross - Da Bomb part b.
The last section of the MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 represents the bus ride. It has a constant slope because the bus is moving at a constant speed. Because the bus probably moves faster than Forrest walks, the slope of this segment is greater than the slope for the walking section. In addition to choosing a graph that is increasing, decreasing, or constant to model a process, we can consider graphs that bend upward or downward.
The bend is called the concavity of the graph. The two functions described in this example are both increasing functions, but they increase in different MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 . The number of flu cases reported at an urban medical center during an epidemic is an increasing function of time, and it is growing at a faster and faster rate.
Symphonie Nr. 38 C-dur - Haydn* - Die Haydn-Edition III Symphonien 36-48 temperature of a potato placed in a hot oven increases rapidly at first, then more slowly as it approaches the temperature of the oven.
We can see this by computing the rate of change over successive time intervals. The function values in table 2 increase, but at a decreasing rate. The graph is increasing but bends downward. In this section, we consider some situations that can be modeled by the basic functions.
The speed of sound is a function of the temperature of the air in kelvins. Plot the data to obtain a graph. Which of the basic functions does your graph most resemble? Use your function to estimate your distance from the thunderstorm. Thus, we suggest the function.
The Kelvin temperature is. The lightning and the thunderclap occur simultaneously, and the speed of light is so fast about 30, meters per second that we see the lightning flash as it occurs. The ultraviolet index UVI is issued by the National Weather Service as a forecast of the amount of ultraviolet radiation expected to reach Earth around noon on a given day. The data show how much exposure to the sun people can take before risking sunburn.
Which of the basic functions do your graphs most resemble? At this point, a word of caution is in order. There is more to choosing a model than finding a curve that fits the data. A model based purely on the data is called an empirical model. However, many functions have similar shapes over small intervals of their input variables, and there may be several candidates that model the data. Such a model simply describes the general shape of the data set; the parameters of the model do not necessarily correspond to any actual process.
In contrast, mechanistic models provide insight into the biological, chemical, or physical process that is thought to govern the phenomenon under study. Parameters derived from mechanistic models are quantitative estimates of real system properties. Here is what GraphPad Software has to say about modeling:. You should base your choice on your understanding of chemistry or physiology or genetics, etc.
The choice should not be based solely on the shape of the graph. Using such a program is appealing because it frees you from the need to choose an equation. The problem is that the program has no understanding of the scientific context of your experiment.
The equations that fit the data best are unlikely to correspond to scientifically meaningful models. You will not be able to interpret the best-fit values of the variables, and the results are unlikely to be useful for data analysis. MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 nonlinear graph may be concave up or concave down.
If a graph is concave up, its slope is increasing. If it is concave down, its slope is decreasing. Fitting a MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 to the data is not enough to produce a useful model; appropriate scientific principles should also be considered. Decide whether the graph of a function is increasing or decreasing, concave up or concave down from a table of values: 25— Halfway from your English class to your math class, you realize that you left your math book in the classroom.
You retrieve the book, then walk to your math class. Graph the distance between you and your English classroom as a function of time, from the moment you originally leave the English classroom until you reach the math classroom. After you leave your math class, you start off toward your music class. Halfway there you meet an old friend, so you stop That Glory Bound Train - Roy Acuff - Smoky Mountain Memories chat for a while.
Then you continue to the music class. Graph the distance between you and your math classroom as a function of time, from the moment you leave the math classroom until you reach the music classroom. Toni drives from home to meet her friend at the gym, which MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 halfway between their homes. They work out together at the gym; then they both go to the friend's home for a snack.
Finally Toni drives home. Graph the distance between Toni and her home as a function of time, from the moment she leaves home until she returns. While bicycling from home to school, Greg gets a flat tire. He repairs the tire in just a few minutes but decides to backtrack a few miles to a service station, where he cleans up.
Finally, he bicycles the rest of the way to school. Graph the distance between Greg and his home as a function of time, from the moment he leaves home until he arrives at school. Inflation is still rising, but by less each month. The price of wheat was rising more rapidly in than at any time during the previous decade.
The number of people willing to buy a new high-definition television, as a function of its price. The average age at which women first marry decreased from tobut it has been increasing since then. When you learn a foreign language, the number of vocabulary words you know increases slowly at first, then increases more rapidly, and finally starts to level off.
Each situation in Problems 19—24 can be modeled by a transformation of a basic function. Name the basic function and sketch a possible graph. Match the graph of the function with the graph of its rate of change, shown in Figures A—F. For Problems 35—40, plot the data; then decide which of the basic functions could describe the data. Four different functions are described below. Match each description with the appropriate table of values and with its graph.
As a chemical pollutant pours into a lake, its concentration is a function of MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99. The concentration of the pollutant initially increases quite rapidly, but due to the natural mixing and self-cleansing action of the lake, the concentration levels off and stabilizes at some saturation level.
An overnight express train travels at a constant speed across the Great Plains. The train's distance from its point of origin is a function of time.
The population of a small suburb of a Florida city is a function of time. The population began increasing rather slowly, but it has continued to grow at a faster and faster rate.
The level of production at a manufacturing plant is a function of capital outlay, that is, the amount of money invested in the plant. El Twist Del Autobus - Various - A Tu Bola - La Música De La Movida first, small increases in capital outlay result in large increases in production, but eventually the investors MFG - Various - Just The Best 2/99 to Tonight - Def Leppard - Hysteria + Adrenalize diminishing returns on their money, so that although production continues to increase, it is at a disappointingly slow rate.
Fresh water flowing through Crystal Lake has gradually reduced the phosphate concentration to its natural level, and it is now stable. The number of bacteria in a person during the course of an illness is a function of time. It increases rapidly at first, then decreases slowly as the patient recovers. A squirrel drops a pine cone from the top of a California redwood. The height of the pine cone is a function of time, decreasing ever more rapidly as gravity accelerates its descent.
Enrollment in Ginny's Weight Reduction program is a function of time. It began All Demo Song And No Keys Makes Tim Go Crazy - BoyMeatsGirl - LargeHardonCollider last fall.
