P3.14 Water Reservoir Vol Using estimates of rainfall, evaporation, and water consumption, the town engineer developed the following model of the water volume in the reservoir as a function of time where V is the water volume in liters, t is time in days, and r is the town's consumption rate in liters per day. Write TWO user-defined functions. The first function should define the function V(t) for use with the fzero function. The second function should use fzero to compute how long it will take for the water volume to decrease to x percent of its initial value of 109 L. The inputs to the second function should be x and r. Test your functions for the case where x = 50 percent and r = 107 L/day.

A NearBy Reservoir

A NearBy Reservoir This 315-acre anglers oasis sits in the heart of Suburban Castro Valley but, you'd never know it from your surroundings once inside the park. Miles of parkland and trails make Chabot a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Hikers can enjoy scenic walks on the 280-acre Fairmont Ridge. Park trails are designed for shared useage. Lake Chabot is well known among the running community. The park hosts Half Marathons, 5K's and the Kids Fun Run. In fact, Trail Runner magazine chose this setting as one of America's Most Scenic Races.

Water Reservoir Vol Problem 3-14 appears to have an inconsistency
The fzero built-in function operates on any SINGLE VARIABLE function as described in Tab of the text book. In this case want to input a V(t), function, NOT a V(t,x,r) function to determine the %-decrease time. The problem, however, says that TWO parameters, x & r, must also be sent to the V(t) function before using fzero

Use GLOBALS for x&r We can “work around” the fzero single-varialbe requirement for V(t) by declaring x & r as GLOBAL Variables as described on pg 124 of the Text Declaring x & r as globals in BOTH the calling function and the V(t) function gives the single-Var function, V(t), access to r & x withOUT listing them in the V-function argument

Physical Analysis The Reservoir Volume vs t Function
Now need to find the time, td, for the volume to decrease TO x-percent of the initial Volume for a given water consumption rate, r i.e, Find td such that

Physical Analysis Now need to define a function for which zeros exist
In this case define a DIFFERENCE Function Want to ZERO Vguess - Vcalc Now ΔV will be ZERO when t = td so that V(td) = Vfinal Thus the function to be zeroed is the DIFFERENCE between Vfinal (the Goal) and V(t) (the Guess) Want: Vgoal − Vguess = 0

MATLAB GamePlan Write the single variable (var = t) function deltaV(t) for use in fzero This function receives parameters r & x as GLOBAL variables rd & xd Write the calling function, time_to_decrease(x,r), that calls into action fzero with deltaV as its argument This calling function sends rd & xd to deltaV by way of the GLOBAL declaration

Cmd Window Session For x = 50%, and r = 1e7 liters per day
>> td50_1e7 = time_to_decrease(50,1e7) Rd = Xd = 50 t_dec = td50_1e7 = Thus for a 1e7 liter/day consumption rate, a 50% decrease in volume takes about 54 days

Cmd Window Session For x = 27%, and r = 4e6 liters/day
>> td27_4e6 = time_to_decrease(27,4e6) Rd = Xd = 27 t_dec = td27_4e6 = Thus for a 4e6 liter/day consumption rate, a decrease to 27% of the initial volume takes about 204 days

DeltaV Plot Note that fzero can Return ERRONEOUS (negative) Results if Start-Pt is Off

Erroneous result For x = 65%, and r = 1e6 liters/day
>> td65_1e6 = time_to_decrease(65,1e6) Rd = Xd = 65 t_dec = td65_1e6 = For THIS SET of Parameters fzero found a NEGTIVE (erroneous Root)

Erroneous DeltaV Plot fzero found the negative root
When in Doubt PLOT it fzero found the negative root The can be fixed by changing the starting point to 200

Erroneous result For x = 65%, and r = 1e6 liters/day
Change This Line in the time_to_decrease code t_dec = fzero('deltaV', 200) The new (Mathimatically Correct) result >> td65_1e6 = time_to_decrease(65,1e6) Rd = Xd = 65 t_dec = td65_1e6 =

Erroneous Comment Even though Days is correct by the Equation, it is NOT physically reasonable Since Weather is CYCICAL on a 365 day basis, anything over a Year violates nature and is thus NOT Applicable Some Advice Always do a Reality Check on the Results returned by ANY computer program When in Doubt PLOT
