A tank contains 1200 gal of water in which 150 lb of salt is dissolved initially. 50 gal of brine, each (gallon) containing (1+sint) lb of dissolved salt, runs into the tank per minute. The mixture, which is kept uniform by stirring, runs out of the tank at the rate of 30 gal per minute. Denoting the amount of salt in the tank at any time i as m, (a) formulate an ordinary differential equation for studying the dynamics of the amount of salt in the tank, (b) solve the differential equation manually, and (c) write a MATLAB mfile program to solve the differential equation using dsolve command and plot the dynamic response of the system for OSIS 7.5 hr with At = 0.5 min.
