Question

Wheat production W*,* in megabushels, in a given year
*t* depends on the average temperature *T,* in
Celsius, and annual rainfall R, in cm. Scientists estimate that the
average temperature is rising at a rate of 0.15^{o}C per
year, and rainfall is decreasing at a rate of 0.1 cm per year.
Scientist also estimate that ∂ W / ∂ T = − 2 megabushels per
^{o}C and ∂ W / ∂ R = 8 megabushels per cm. Estimate the
rate of change of wheat production, d W / d t in megabushels per
year.

Answer #1

Assume that the average daily temperature in Nome, Alaska is
given by T(x) =-0.002(x-182)2 + 50 F on the xth day of
the year (x = 1 is Jan 1, x = 2 is Jan 2, etc.). Find and interpret
the following:
The percentage change in the average daily temperature in Nome,
Alaska from January 1 to February 1.
The average rate of change in the average daily temperature in
Nome, Alaska from January 1 to February 1.
The change...

1.) Kay Corporation's 5-year bonds yield 6.30% and
5-year T-bonds yield 4.40%. The real risk-free rate is r* = 2.5%,
the inflation premium for 5-year bonds is IP = 1.50%, the default
risk premium for Kay's bonds is DRP = 1.30% versus zero for
T-bonds, and the maturity risk premium for all bonds is found with
the formula MRP = (t – 1) × 0.1%, where t = number of years to
maturity. What is the liquidity premium (LP) on...

A6-9. Suppose the aggregate production function for an economy
is given by Y* = (T+H)K1/2L1/2, where Y* is potential GDP, T is the
average level of technology, H is the average level of human
capital, K is the capital stock and L is the labour force. Assume
initially that both T and H equal 5, and that both K and L equal
64. Assume that the population grows at the same rate as any growth
in the labour force so...

Desai Industries is analyzing an average-risk project, and the
following data have been developed. Unit sales will be constant,
but the sales price should increase with inflation. Fixed costs
will also be constant, but variable costs should rise with
inflation. The project should last for 3 years. Under the new tax
law, the equipment used in the project is eligible for 100% bonus
depreciation, so it will be fully depreciated at t = 0. At the end
of the project’s...

Part I. Indicate whether true or false (T or F).
____ Storm water detention ponds typically are designed to
regulate the outflow peak rate at or below a single target value,
such as the pre-development (pre-land use change) peak runoff rate
for a specified return period event. Detention storage alters the
peak but not the volume of the outflow hydrograph.
_____ Typical rating curves for weirs are concave upward.
Typical rating curves for orifices are concave downward.
____ A sediment...

Nealon Energy Corporation engages in the acquisition,
exploration, development, and production of natural gas and oil in
the continental United States. The company has grown rapidly over
the last 5 years as it has expanded into horizontal drilling
techniques for the development of the massive deposits of both gas
and oil in shale formations. The company's operations in the
Haynesville shale (located in northwest Louisiana) have been so
significant that it needs to construct a natural gas gathering and
processing...
