Why are these numbers arranged in this order?

Mental Set

Try these two examples to see the effects of mental set

A. Luchins’s Water-Jar Problem. Suppose that you have three jars, A, B, and C. Each of six problems (listed below) shows the capacity of the three jars. You must use these jars in order to obtain the amount of liquid specified in the Goal column. You may obtain the goal amount by adding or subtracting the quantities listed in A, B, and C. (The answers can be found later in the text, in the discussion of mental set.)

B. A Number Puzzle. You are no doubt familiar with the kind of number puzzles in which you try to figure out the pattern for the order of numbers. Why are these numbers arranged in this order?

8, 5, 4, 9, 1, 7, 6, 3, 2, 0

erive the differential equations in terms of the liquid heights h1 and h2.

  Figure 7.18 shows a liquid-level system in which two tanks have cross-sectional areas A1 and A2, respectively. The volume flow rate into tank 1 is qi. A pump is connected to the bottom….

Derive the differential equation relating the liquid height h and the volume flow rate qi at the inlet.

  Consider the single-tank liquid-level system shown in Figure 7.19, where the volume flow rate into the tank through a pipe is qi. The liquid leaves the tank through an orifice….

Derive the differential equations in terms of the liquid heights h1 and h2.

Figure 7.20 shows a hydraulic system of two interconnected tanks that have the same cross-sectional area of A. A pump is connected to tank 1. Assume that the relationship between the….
