1) In an attempt to understand the mechanism oI the depolarization process in a Iuel
cell, an electro-kinetic model Ior mixed oxygen-methanol current on platinum was
developed in the laboratory at UniKL MICET. A very simpliIied model oI the
reaction developed suggests a Iunctional relation in an integral Iorm. To Iind the
time required Ior 50° oI the oxygen to be consumed, the time,

a) Use Iour-Simpson`s 1/3 Rule to Iind the time required Ior 50° oI the oxygen
to be consumed.

b) Find the true error,

!Ior part (a).
c) Find the absolute relative true error,
$
, , Ior part (a).


2) Compare your results in Question 1 by using
a) single application !"# $# % & ') oI Simpson`s 3/8 Rule.
b) multiple segments Simpson`s 3/8 Rule, with number oI segments, % & (.
c) single application oI Simpson`s 3/8 Rule in conjunction with Simpson`s 1/3
rule to integrate the same Iunction Ior Iive segments (% & )*.
