The fuel cost per hour for running a train is proportional to the square of the speed it generates in km per hour. If the fuel costs Rs 48 per hour at speed 16 km per hour and the fixed charges to run the train amount to Rs1200 per hour. Assume the speed of the train as v km/h. (i) Given that the fuel cost per hour is k times the square of the speed the train generates in km/h, the value of k is:

(a) $$\dfrac{16}{3}$$

(b) $$\dfrac{1}{3}$$

(c) 3

(d) $$\dfrac{3}{16}$$

(ii) If the train has travelled a distance of 500km, then the total cost of running the train is given by function:

(a) $$\dfrac{15}{16}v+\dfrac{600000}{v}$$

(b) $$\dfrac{375}{4}v+\dfrac{600000}{v}$$

(c) $$\dfrac{5}{16}v^2+\dfrac{150000}{v}$$

(d) $$\dfrac{3}{16}v+\dfrac{6000}{v}$$

(iii) The most economical speed to run the train is:

(a) 18km/h

(b) 5km/h

(c) 80km/h

(d) 40km/h

(iv) The fuel cost for the train to travel 500km at the most economical speed is:

(a) Rs 3750

(b) Rs 750

(c) Rs 7500

(d) Rs 75000

(v) The total cost of the train to travel 500km at the most economical speed is:

(a) Rs 3750

(b) Rs 75000

(c) Rs 7500

(d) Rs 15000

##### Solution :-

(i) Right answer is (d) $$\dfrac{3}{16}$$

Explanation:-

Fuel cost = $$k(speed)^2$$

= 48 =k.162

k =$$\dfrac{3}{16}$$

(ii) Right answer is (b) $$\dfrac{375}{4}v+\dfrac{600000}{v}$$

Explanation:-

Total cost of running train (let C) = $$\dfrac{3}{16}v^2t+1200t$$

Distance covered = 500km

time=$$\dfrac{500}{v}hrs$$

Total cost of running train 500 km

=$$\dfrac{3}{16}v^2(\dfrac{500}{v})+1200(\dfrac{500}{v})$$

$$\dfrac{375}{4}v+\dfrac{600000}{v}$$

(iii) Right answer is (c) 80km/h

Explanation:-

$$\dfrac{dc}{dv}=\dfrac{375}{4}-\dfrac{600000}{v^2}$$

Let $$\dfrac{dc}{dv}=0$$

v =  80km/h

(iv)  Right answer is (c) Rs 7500

Explanation:-

Fuel cost for running 500 km

$$\dfrac{375}{4}v=\dfrac{375}{4}\times 80=Rs. 7500$$

(v) Right answer is (d) Rs 15000

Explanation:-

Total cost for running 500 km

=$$\dfrac{375}{4}v+\dfrac{600000}{v}$$

$$\dfrac{375\times 80}{4} +\dfrac{600000}{80}$$

= Rs.15000

#### General anesthesia is used for major operations to cure the patients and conduct pain

General anesthesia is used for major operations to cure the patients and conduct pain free surgeries. Propofol is a commonly used anesthetic injected for major operations such as knee replacement or open heart surgery. It also acts as a sedative and an analgesic. A patient is rushed to operation theatre for a 2-hour cardiac surgery. A person is anesthetized when its blood stream contains at least 3 mg of propofol per kg of body weight. The rate of change of propofol(x), in the body is proportional to the quantity of propofol present at that time. Based on the above information. Answer the following questions:

(a) Show that propofol given intravenously is eliminated exponentially from the patients’ blood stream

(b) What dose of propofol should be injected to induce unconsciousness in a 50 Kg adult for a two hours operation?

(Given $$(2)^{\dfrac{2}{5}}$$=1.1487 & assume half-life of propofol = 5 hours)
