I bought 1,000 pounds of radioactive cohenium (used in the produc-
tion of a GPA destroying bomb), and had it mailed to me by surface mail. When
it arrived exactly four days later, it weighed 8.1 pounds.
(a) Write down the initial value problem describing this situation, letting
Q
(
t
) rep-
resent the quantity of cohenium in the package at time
t
.
(b) Solve the initial value problem and give the precise formula for
Q
(
t
).
(c) If I had paid an extra \$1.20 the package would have been delivered in one day.
How much cohenium would there have been then?

A tank initially holds 80 liters of a salt solution containing
1
4
lb. of
salt per liter. Starting at time
t
= 0, a solution containing 1 lb. of salt per liter is
poured into the tank at the rate of 3 liter/min, and a
second
solution containing
1/2 lb. of salt per liter is poured into the tank at the rate of 2 liter/min while the
well–stirred mixture leaves the tank at the rate of 5 liter/min.
