1. Can any one help me with a few maths
a reactor increases in temperature at a rate given by the equation below up to a maximum of 300C . Y=e5t + e-2t

A) construct a graph to show this increase at 100ms intervals from 2c
b) show by differentiation the gradient of the curve at 1) t=400ms and 2) t=550ms

A) I think it wants you to plot a point every 100ms which is every 0.1s, So put t=0.1, t=0.2, .... adding every value of y to 2. so plotting:

B) Do you know how to differentiate ? just do what the question says remember that t is in seconds not ms
