20xx, Mercury Global Media, Inc. hired Sam Smith as a television producer in one of its television stations. At the time, Sam was 58 in N years old and had over 30 years experience in radio and television. A little over six months later, Mercury notified employees that it was selling that station and that the employees would receive special consideration for other positions with Mercury, including other radio and TV stations Internet video operations, and similar entities. Sam applied for a job as a video editor with one of Mercury’s subsidiaries but was not hired. A younger displaced employee was given the job. Sam was told that he was not hired because he was “overqualified and overspecialized. Sam files O a- Sam can argue that the Mercury’s….

LiC 6 + CoO 2 ? C 6 + LiCoO 2 The “specs” on my phone claim that it can do audio playback for up to 50 hours (treat as 2 sig figs), whereas it can do video playback for only 11 hours. Given the following information: Ideal Battery Voltage: 3.82 V (i.e. that is the overall electrical potential of the cell) Material Constraints: up to 0.0675 mol e- can be transferred before the battery is done. A) How much power does each function, audio and video, require? (The unit of power is W which is J/s) B) If the cell voltage were to decrease, how would that affect how long your battery could last? Explain your answer using 1-2 sentences
Problem 1 Chapter 9: Sam’s Cat Hotel operates 52 weeks per year and uses a continuous review inventory system. It purchases kitty litter for $10.75 per bag. The following information is available about these bags Demand 85 bags/week Order cost $57/order Annual holding cost = 26% of cost per bag Desired cycle-service level = 90% Lead-time 2 weeks Standard deviation of weekly demand = 18 bags a) What is the economic order quantity (EOQ) for kitty litter? b) What would be the average time between orders (in weeks)? c) What should the reorder point R be? d) Assume that the firm decides to change to the periodic review system to control the inventory for kitty litter. The time between reviews, P, is the average time between orders as….

Consider the reflection of a plane wave from an isovelocity fluid layer of thickness H overlying an isovelocity fluid halfspace for which c2 <>1 <>3 and p1 <>p2 <>p3:
a. What is the critical grazing angle for waves incident from medium 1?
b. If k2H 1, show that to leading order the plane-wave reflection coefficient reduces to the plane-wave reflection coefficient without the layer present.
Now, suppose that P1 = p3 <>p2 and c1= c3 <>2, and that the plane wave is incident at grazing angle <> (c1=c2).
c. What is the angle of the transmitted wave in the lower halfspace, and what kind of wave is it (radiating or evanescent)?
d. What is the form of the solution in the layer?
e. Derive the expression for the reflection coefficient in the upper halfspace and the transmission coefficient….
Make a direct numerical implementation of the expression in (2.146) for the wavenumber representation of the field in an ideal waveguide. Allow the horizontal wavenumber to be complex.
a. For sound speed 1500 m/s and depth 100 m, compute the wavenumber kernel at 20 Hz for source and receiver both at depth 36 m. Sample the kernel at 200 points equidistantly placed over the interval where kw is the water wavenumber. Let the imaginary value of the horizontal wavenumber be kw=100 to avoid the modal singularities.
b. Determine the wavenumber interval for which your code produces a result which is qualitatively consistent with
c. Describe the nature of the numerical problem, and rewrite into a form which remedies the problem. Implement it and compare your result to (qualitatively).

The denominator of the depth-dependent Green’s function for the fluid–elastic halfspace problem described in the previous problem also has a symmetric pair of complex roots which become important for the propagation characteristics in certain cases.
a. Employ a numerical root finding scheme (e.g., a complex Newton–Raphson scheme) to determine the complex root with positive real value. (Warning: take care how you choose the branch cuts for the square root).
b. Assuming the sound speed in water to be 1500 m/s and the density 1000 kg/m3, compressional speed 5000 m/s and density 2500 kg/m3 in the solid, map the position of the root as a function of shear speed in the range 1500–3500m/s.
