The length
x
, of a certain leaf, at time
t
(during a period of its growth) is proportional to the amount of water it contains. It may be assumed that during this period, the leaf is square in shape. The leaf absorbs water from the plant at a rate proportional to the length of the leaf and loses water by evaporation at a rate proportional to the area of the leaf. Show that the growth of the leaf can be represented by the differential equation

where
a
and
b
are positive constants. Solve this equation, given that, when

x
+ 1 = 0 has two
positive roots, α and β, (α < β), and one negative
root.
(a)

Prove that 0 < α < 1 and 3 < β < 4.

(b)

Show that the iteration provided that

(c)

Form another iteration that will
converge to α.
(d)

Raphson method with 3.5 as a starting value to calculate β correct
to two decimal places. [15
