The matrix has eigenvalues1=3 and 2=−2. Let’s find the eigenvectors corresponding to 1=3. Let v=v2v1. Then(A−3I)v=0 gives us

2−3−1−4−1−3v1v2=00 from which we obtain the duplicate equations

−v1−4v2−v1−4v2=0

If we let v2=t, thenv1=−4t. All eigenvectors corresponding to1=3are multiples of1−4 and thus the eigenspace corresponding to1=3is given by the span of1−4. That is,1−4is a basis of the eigenspace corresponding to 1=3.

Repeating this process with 2=−2, we find that

4v1−4V2−v1+v2=0

If we let v2=t then v1=t as well. Thus, an eigenvector corresponding to2=−2 is 11 and the eigenspace corresponding to 2=−2 is given by the span of11. 11is a basis for the eigenspace corresponding to 2=−2.

Since all entries are ≥ 0 and each column sums to 1, this A is a Markov matrix. Thus we know that λ1 = 1 is an eigenvalue. Since tr(A) = λ1 + λ2 = 3/2, we conclude λ2 = 1/2 is another eigenvalue. We diagonalize it using the matrix S of eigenvectors:

3^{rd} row is free for both A and B.

Consider the augmented matrix

We can convert this to reduced echelon form by subtracting twice row 1 from row 3 and

subtracting 3 times row 2 from row 3:

In order for this system to be consistent, it must be the case that

There are no constraints on b1 and b2, the possible right-hand sides of the equation are vectors of the form

for any real numbers b1 and b2. In other words, the column space of A is the plane containing the vectors and . Looking at the reduced echelon form of the matrix, we see that it is of rank 2 and that a particular solution of the given equation is .

So .

By the Rank-Nullity Theorem,

and

So it suffices to show that, therefore,

Form the augmented matrix [A b]:

Then subtracting row 1 from rows 2 and 3 and multiplying row 1 by 1 2 yields

Next, subtracting twice row 2 from row 1 and adding row 2 to row 3 gives

This is now in reduced echelon form, so we can answer the question. Notice that the pivot columns are the first and second columns; hence, the column space of A is the span of the first two columns of A, namely and .

Geometrically, this is just the plane containing these two vectors. Returning the the reduced echelon form of the augmented matrix, notice that we must have

x_{1} = 4 − x_{3} + 2x_{4}

x_{2} = −1 − x_{3} − 2x_{4}

so the special solutions are of the form

for some real numbers x_{3} and x_{4}. Hence, the nullspace of A consists precisely of such linear combinations.

Finally, all solutions to the equation Ax = b are of the form

where the first term is a particular solution and the latter two terms comprise the special (or homogeneous) solutions.

Solution:

Solution: Any four vectors in R^{3} are dependent (since the dimension of R^{3} is 3), and the vectors v_{1}, v_{2}, v_{3} are independent because they are columns of an invertible 3 by 3 matrix. Solving the system Ax = 0 is finding the nullspace of the matrix

Special solution here is x_{4} = 1, x_{3} = −4, x_{2} = 1, x_{1} = 1, so the nullspace consists of all (c_{1}, c_{2}, c_{3}, c_{4}) = x_{4}(1, 1, −4, 1).

Solution:

Since v_{4} = v_{2} − v1, v_{5} = v_{3} − v_{1}, and v_{6} = v_{3} − v_{2}, there are at most three independent vectors among these: furthermore, applying row reduction to the matrix [v_{1} v_{2} v_{3}] gives three pivots, showing that v_{1}, v_{2}, and v_{3} are independent.

The echelon matrix has only a single pivot, in the second column . The second column is therefore a basis for the column space . (The third column of is equal to four times the second column.) The dimension of is 1 (same as the rank of ).

Question 1

Upper triangular matrix is non-singular when no entry on the main diagonal is zero.

Question 2

Solution:

Hence elimination will subtract 4 times row 2 from row 3.

Looking at the U matrix, we see the pivots along the diagonal of the matrix:

To find out if a row exchange will be needed or not, first we determine A

After carrying the first elimination, we get:

Hence, there would not be a need for a row exchange.

1.6. Inverses and Transposes

Question 1

Question 2

When is applied to a matrix A its effect on A is to replace the first row of by the 3^{rd} row of, the 3rd row of, and to replace the 3rd row by the first row at the same time. As an example. Hence to reverse this effect, we need to perform the same operation again, i.e. replace the 1^{st} row with the 3^{rd} row and replaced the 3^{rd} row by the 1^{st} row, this is P_{1}

Hence,

Therefore,

Is an indication to replace 1^{st} row by the 3^{rd} row and to replace the 2^{nd} row by the 1^{st} row, and to replace the 2^{nd} row by the 3^{rd} row. For example; hence, in order to reverse it, we need to replace the 1^{st} row by the 2^{nd} row, and to replace the 2^{nd} row by the 3^{rd} row and to replace the 3^{rd} row by the 1^{st} row at the same time.

Hence,

In a permutation matrix P, each row will have at most one non-zero entry with value of 1. Consider the entry Pi, j = This entry will cause row i to be replaced by row j. Hence to reverse the effect, we need to replace row j by row i, or in other words, we need to have the entry (j, i) in the inverse matrix be 1. But this is the same as transposing P, since in a transposed matrix the entry (i, j) goes to (j, Hence. Now, where , are permutation matrices (in other words, each row of is all zeros, except for one entry with value of 1.)

Hence the entry C (i, i) will be 1 whenever A (i, j) = B (j, i) = 1, this is from the definition of matrix multiplication, element by element view, since:

For all entries except when the entry, and at the same time, but since is the transpose of P, then whenever then only when.

Hence this leads to with all other entries in C being zero, i.e.

Question 4

(a)

If A is invertible and AB = AC, then B = C is true.

Because;

This means that; IB = IC, and subsequently B = C

(b)

Suppose:

AC = AB; then:

0 = AB – AC = A (B-C)

If , Note that if we define

Then you can find by multiplying it out that:

Therefore, if we set we find that:
So for this choice of A, just pick any 2×2 matrix for B, and define C = D + B; and automatically, you will find that: AC = A (D + B) = AD + AB = 0 + AB = AB; but C is not = B.

Question 6

Start with the augmented matrix:

Then the only row on the left that doesn’t already look like the identity matrix is the second row; we just need subtract rows 1 and 3 from row 2, which gives:

Hence,

To find, start with the augmented matrix:

Replace the 1^{st} row by half of itself and add half of the 1^{st} row to the 2^{nd} row:

Next, add a third of the second row to the first, add 2/3 the second row to the third, and multiply the second row by 2/3:

Finally, multiply the third row by 3/4, and then add 1/3 of the result to row 1 and add 2/3 of the result to row 2:

Thus,

To find, start with the augmented matrix:

First, switch rows 1 and 3:

Now, subtract row 2 from row 1 and subtract row 3 from row 2:

Thus,

Question 10

For the first choice of A, we write the augmented matrix [A I]:

Then subtracting two times row 1 from row 2 and subtracting three times row 3 from row 2 yields

Hence,

For the second choice of A, write the augmented matrix [A I]:

Subtracting row 1 from rows 2 and 3 yields:

In turn, subtracting row 2 from rows 1 and 3 yields:

Finally, subtracting row 3 from row 2 yields:

Hence,

Question 13

Question 17

The inverse of a lower (upper) triangular matrix is still lower (upper) triangular. Multiplying lower (upper) triangular matrices gives a lower (upper) triangular matrix.

The main diagonal of and are the same as those of and , so we have. By comparing the off-diagonals of, both matrices must be diagonal. , is invertible so.

Then

Question 18

To make the pivot actually occur at f, switch rows 1 and 3:

Now, subtract d/j times row 1 from row 2 and subtract a/f times row 1 from row 3; note:

If e = 0 then the 2^{nd} row is all zeros, which means that there can’t be a pivot in that row. Thus, when A is invertible, it must be the case that e 0. Therefore, a pivot is in the 2^{nd} column, and the entry below can be eliminated through subtraction of times on row 2 from row 3:

If A is to be invertible, it must be the case that c 0. Therefore, the conditions which ensure that A is invertible are:

Turning to B, the matrix becomes:

Then, in order to have a pivot in the 2^{nd} row, it must be the case that

Or, equivalently,

On the other hand, if, so we can switch rows 1 and 2 to get

Then we can eliminate a by subtracting times row 1 from row 2 (note:

Again, if we are to have a pivot in the 2^{nd} row, it must be the case that:

Or, equivalently,

Therefore, either

Question 2: Part A

The composite sound reduction of two elements can be used using the weighted sound reduction index formula given below:

Where;

D = Level difference

S = Area of the test element through which the noise is transmitted

A = Total sound absorption by the element

Therefore, the composite sound reduction of the two elements can be determined by using the above formulae which can be used to the absorption factors of the two elements given by [ ]. With the absorption factors of the two elements and the average sound pressure of the source and receiving area, the composite sound reduction can be determined for the two elements.

Question 2: Part B

Using the explanation given above it is possible to show that the 10 dB rule works, i.e. “There is no benefit in increasing the sound reduction of the larger element more that 10 dB over the smaller element which has a lesser sound reduction.”

Let’s now consider the parameters of the two elements;

Element 1: Area = 9 m^{2} and R_{w} = 40 dB

Element 2: Area = 2 m^{2} and R_{w} = 30 dB

The composite sound reduction equation provided above can be used to proof that the 10 dB rule works, by computing the absorption factors for each element, which in the case of these two elements can be calculated from the given details of the two elements. The calculations for absorption factors for the two elements are shown below:

Element 1

Element 2

The above results for the absorption factors of both elements proves the 10 dB rule since their values are close despite the difference of 10 dB between the two elements.

Sound Reduction is given by the formula shown below:

Question 4

Acoustics and sustainability are the two key considerations when designing sustainable or green buildings mainly because both are positively related in terms of the selected specifications, where those of one aspect of a building i.e. acoustics are dependent of the specifications of the building’s sustainability. This is highly attributable to the fact that, acoustics which are majorly concerned with sound insulation have become a very important factor when designing sustainable buildings as our environments continue to become noisier. The reason why acoustic has become a highly influential factor is because sound insulation has a significant impact on the extents of embodied energy in a particular building, which makes it essential to clearly understand the effect of sound insulation on embodied energy levels right from the beginning of the designing of sustainable buildings.

The close connection between acoustic (sound insulation) and sustainability is how the former influences the latter on basis of embodied energy, especially because embodied energy in a particular building can be effectively reduced by re-using an existing building through refurbishments that enables acoustic specifications are fulfilled in a manner that is very cost effective. This is in most cases achieved through timely up front acoustic testing of an existing building to understand its performance prior to refurbishment. Hence, upon establishing the acoustic performance of an existing building as well as understanding its restrictions and limitations, the sustainability of the building can be significantly improved by alleviating these restrictions or limitations.

When designing sustainable buildings, acoustics have become a very significant consideration because it determines the type of materials used in the construction of the sustainable building which is an indication of how the two components i.e. sustainability and acoustics are interrelated. Therefore, early acoustic testing is in most cases carried out as an effective an method to make sure that designs of sustainable buildings are sufficient, and that there is high quality construction in which sustainability is given priority. As a result, the architects usually make decisions of the construction materials to be used in a sustainable building either lightweight or heavyweight materials based of the intended quality of acoustics (sound insulation) as well as its subsequent sustainability. For instance, high/heavy weight materials are in most cases favored for enhanced acoustics; however lightweight materials such as timber often offer better or equal acoustic performance. This means that sustainability of buildings can be improved by using lightweight construction due to their less embodied energy compared to heavyweight construction materials apart from achieving higher levels of acoustic performance do not lead to desired sustainability.

Therefore, as it is theoretically know, a ±6 dB change in acoustic performance or sound insulation is equivalent to a doubling or halving of mass of construction materials for a particular building. This implies that, from the perspective of sustainability when acoustic parameters are over specified there will be an eventual significant impact on the created waste. This indicates that acoustic performance considerations or specifications or parameters in a particular building have a direct impact on its sustainability, hence necessitating the need to always make sure that a balance has been achieved between acoustic and sustainability at the design level of a building.

Furthermore, there are various products that are used for the enhancement of the acoustic of a vented façade. For instance, glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) acoustic panels are one of the products often used in constructing vented facades for enhanced acoustic performance because they not only lead to sound insulation, but also improves sustainability of the building. Mineral wool is the other product used within partitions of vented facades for the purpose of acoustic dampening within stud walls, and it results to significant enhancement in acoustic performance in addition to being sustainable and cost effective method.

Question 5

A copy of the Excel spreadsheet is attached below:

When the absorptive panels are spread throughout the room more sound will be absorbed because they will be in proximity to the source of sound leading to significant sound reduction; however when they are placed in one big area there will be less sound reduction since they will be overlying each other.

SAMPLE ANSWER

Question 1

For point B:

Within point in a stressed body, there exist three mutually perpendicular planes and the resultant stress is always normal stress. The mutually perpendicular planes are known as principal planes, and the resultant normal stresses acting on them are called principal stresses.

For point A:

Question 2

For pure shear to occur, the stresses σ_{1} and σ_{1} must be equal in magnitude and opposite in sign

σ_{1}= Pr/t and σ_{2}= Pr/2t-F/A= Pr/2t-F/2πrt

Pr/t=- (Pr/2t-F/2πrt) collecting like terms together

Pr/t+ Pr/2t= F/2πrt solving for F, we get F=3π Pr^{2}=3* π*0.1^{2}*12000000Pa

F=360 kN

Required thickness is given by solving for t in equations above. Using the allowable normal stress we have 110 MPa= Pr/2t-F/2πrt, therefore,

t= (P*r^{2}*π-F)/220πr = (12000000*0.1^{2}* π-190000)/ (220000000* π*0.1) = 0.00271 m

Despite all this, there was the need of tutor to give guidance where required. This method was an advancement from the pedagogical consideration that was earlier used.

Classical education was known to shape the future of curriculum in mathematics field due to the fact that it encouraged use of deductive reasoning mainly the paradigm teaching in days before. Rote learning was a new advancement in the curriculum where one could repeat what has been taught or even memorize it at his own free time (Scholarstic, 2014). Rote learning was initially known to be the multiple tables and formulas used in the math’s field. The new rote learning was now supported by mathematical reasoning to find solutions to problems.

Exercisers was a new method enforced for learners to understand learning skills better. Problem solving was an event that shaped the curriculum where math’s ingenuity was solved through setting students to be open-ended in tackling them. The student’s prior understanding is more build through the use of math’s problem solving technique.

The new math changed the curriculum following that it encouraged the use of set theories in solving problems, a method known to have been introduced by Tom Lehrer’s. In older days, learners were up to getting the right answer until when new math technique was introduced as it aimed at ensuring that a person’s knows what he is doing rather than getting the right answer. There was the use of conventional approach used in math’s solving problems. Relational approach was used in the curriculum and it advocated for usage of class topics in problem solving. Unlike before, this method enlightens students to apply math to real live happenings outside classroom work as events take place on a daily basis. The standards-based approach was more concerned on helping students to understand ideas and procedures whereby, it was most applied to college students. Unlike before where this method was not formalized, it was now made formal by the national council of all math’s teachers in the whole of United Kingdom (Scholarstic, 2014). This is to show that curriculum in mathematics has well been shaped to date.
