Problem 62

Concentration of a Solute According to Fick's law, the diffusion of a solute across a cell membrane is given by
$$c^{\prime}(t)=\frac{k A}{V}[C-c(t)]$$
where $A$ is the area of the cell membrane, $V$ is the volume of the cell, $c(t)$ is the concentration inside the cell at time $t, C$ is the concentration outside the cell, and $k$ is a constant.

Rocket Science In the 1999 movie October Sky, Homer Hickum was accused of launching a rocket that started a forest fire. Homer proved his innocence by showing that his rocket could not have flown far enough to reach where the fire started. He used the following reasoning.
a. Using the fact that $a(t)=-32$ (see Example 11$(b) )$ , find $v(t)$ and $s(t),$ given $v(0)=v_{0}$ and $s(0)=0$ . The initial velocity was unknown, and the initial height was 0 $\mathrm{ft.}$ )
b. Homer estimated that the rocket was in the air for 14 seconds. Use $s(14)=0$ to find $v_{0}$ .
c. If the rocket left the ground at a $45^{\circ}$ angle, the velocity in the horizontal direction would be equal to $v_{0},$ the velocity in the vertical direction, so the distance traveled horizontally so this would overestimate the ground at a steeper angle, landing point.) Find the distance the rocket would travel horizontally during its 14-second flight.
