Consider the matrix shown. From the list below, choose the eigenvalues for this matrix. Choose as many correct answers as you wish.HINT: This is a 2x2. So choose 2 values below - Prof. Smith
Correct Answer(s)
A. 15
C. 5
Explanation
The given matrix is a 2x2 matrix. To find the eigenvalues, we need to find the values of λ that satisfy the equation |A - λI| = 0, where A is the given matrix and I is the identity matrix. The determinant of A - λI is (15-λ)(0-λ) - (2)(5) = λ^2 - 15λ - 10. Setting this equal to 0 and solving for λ, we get λ = 15 and λ = -1. However, since we are asked to choose 2 values, and the given options do not include -1, the correct eigenvalues for this matrix are 15 and 5.
2.
For the matrix shown, choose the correct eigenvectors from the list below.
Correct Answer(s)
D. [-2; 1]
E. [1; 2]
Explanation
The correct eigenvectors for the given matrix are [-2; 1] and [1; 2]. These vectors satisfy the equation Av = λv, where A is the given matrix, v is the eigenvector, and λ is the eigenvalue. By substituting the values, we can see that both [-2; 1] and [1; 2] satisfy the equation, making them the correct eigenvectors.

For the 2x2 matrix shown, what are the eigenvalues? Choose the correct option(s) from the list below. You may choose one or more options.
Correct Answer
E. None of these options are correct.
4.
For the matrix shown, choose the correct Eigenvectors from the list below. You may choose more than one option.
Correct Answer(s)
A. [-4; 1]
B. [1; 1]
C. [2; 2]
D. [4; -1]
Explanation
The given matrix has eigenvalues of -2 and 3. To find the eigenvectors, we need to solve the equation (A - λI)v = 0, where A is the matrix, λ is the eigenvalue, I is the identity matrix, and v is the eigenvector. Plugging in the eigenvalue -2, we get the equation [-6, 1; 1, 1]v = 0. Solving this equation, we find that v can be any nonzero multiple of [-4, 1]. Similarly, plugging in the eigenvalue 3, we get the equation [-1, 1; 1, -2]v = 0. Solving this equation, we find that v can be any nonzero multiple of [1, 1]. Therefore, the correct eigenvectors are [-4, 1], [1, 1], [2, 2], and [4, -1].

For the 1D heat conduction problem shown here, with the initial condition shown (i.e. T(x) = 1 - x/L), what is a suitable temperature in the bar after t (time) equals infinity? (i.e. the steady solution)
Correct Answer
A. T(x) = 0
Explanation
The initial condition given is T(x) = 1 - x/L, which means that the temperature at any point x in the bar decreases linearly with x. As time goes to infinity, the system reaches a steady state where the temperature no longer changes with time. In this steady state, the temperature throughout the bar will be constant. Since the initial condition is a linear function that decreases with x, the suitable temperature in the bar after t equals infinity would be T(x) = 0, as it satisfies the condition of a constant temperature throughout the bar.
