Find the volume of gold required for a solid gold prismatic butterfly sculpture

1.PROBLEM SPECIFICATION

The North Korean dictator has decided to build a butterfly sanctuary in the capital, Pyongyang. He wants a

solid gold sculpture of a butterfly to be built at its entrance. Because gold is expensive, the exact quantity

required must be determined.

Architects have decided that the sculpture will take the shape of a, 18-cm deep butterfly prism, where its

base is modelled by the following implicit equation (known as the butterfly curve), with each unit

representing a metre (Barile & Weisstein 2002):

6 + 6 = 2

This is shown graphically in figure 1. To accommodate for bolts to attach the gold prism to its supporting

plinth, 5cm either end of the prism must be made from a different metal. For the equation to be true, all x

values are in the range [-1, 1]. This means that the x value must be limited to a new domain of [-0.95, 0.95].

The volume of this prism can be calculated by multiplying the depth by the cross sectional area. By

rearranging the implicit equation to have y as the subject, the cross sectional area is an integral with limits

of -0.95 and 0.95. Therefore (in units, metres cubed):

0.95

= 0.18

2 6

0.95

2.STRATEGY

Because I am not able to solve the integral using analytical methods (e.g. by parts, substitution), it is

necessary to estimate it using numerical integration methods.

Figure 1 appears to show that the two axes are lines of symmetry. For the y-axis, this can be proven

algebraically:

() :

6

= ()2 ()6 = 2 6

1

Furthermore, for the x-axis:

:

2 6 = 6

() :

6

2 6 = () ()

( 2 6 ) 1

This means that it is possible to integrate just the portion of the curve that is in the positive quadrant, then

multiply it by four in order to calculate the total cross sectional area.

An equivalent formula for the volume of gold required, as deduced from the above, is:

0.95

= 4 0.18

0.95

2 6 = 0.72

2 6

The three methods available to me are the trapezium rule, the mid-point rule and Simpsons rule. For the

sake of simplicity in the explanations, please note that the coefficient of 0.72 is disregarded for the

remainder of section 2.

2.1.TRAPEZIUM RULE

Applying the trapezium rule involves taking the area under the curve and splitting it into several trapezia

with equal width. The sum of the areas gives an approximation to the integrals solution. Figure 2 shows

this with four equal strips of width 0.2375 (0.95 4). It can be seen from the shaded region that this

method gives an under-estimate for the integral. Moreover, it can be deduced that as the number of strips

increases (and so, the thinner each strip is), the extent of the under-estimation given by the total area of the

trapeziums decreases, and in turn, the magnitude of the error in the approximation decreases.

2.2.MID-POINT RULE

The mid-point rule splits the area under the curve into equal-width rectangles, with the centre of the top of

each of these rectangles being a point on the curve. Again, the total area of each of these rectangles

approximates the solution of the integral. Figure 3 shows this rule applied to my integral. This provides an

over-estimate as the curve is well-behaved and is concave (Lissaman & West 2004, p.76).

2.3.SIMPSONS RULE

Under the notion that the trapezium rule will always be an underestimate of the integral as the number of

strips increases and the mid-point rule continues to produce over-estimates, upper and lower bounds can

be deduced for the integral. As the number of strips increases, the error (extent to which the area is underor over-estimated) will become less.

Simpsons rule capitalises on this and is an average of these two integration approximations, with the midpoint rule being weighted twice as heavily as the trapezium rule. It is therefore a more accurate

approximation for the area under the curve than the other two approximations. Because its convergence

towards the true value for the area under the curve is derived from two other, also converging

approximations, Simpsons rule converges much quicker and requires less strips, and consequently, fewer

calculations, to produce a more accurate value.

3.WORKING

I will first approximate the integral below first using the three numerical methods identified in section 2,

before multiplying it by 0.72 to approximate the volume of gold required for my problem.

The formula for the trapezium rule is the following:

The trapezium rule can easily be calculated using Tn and Mn using this formula:

I have elected to write a computer program to produce the trapezium rule, mid-point rule and Simpsons

rule approximations to the integral. This is because it is much more efficient at outputting approximations

with large numbers of strips and is much quicker to implement than a spreadsheet.

It is written in Python and has three input variables: a and b, the lower and upper limits of the integral

respectively, and p, the total number of n values to be calculated:

#Input variables

p=int(eval(input('Number of n values in approximations')))

a=float(eval(input('Lower bound')))

b=float(eval(input('Upper bound')))

The trapezium rule is calculated using a function named trap. Within this function, h is the width of each

strip, v is the variable for the multiplier of (h 2) and u is the variable that generates and represents each

of the values of x to be used for the different values of f(x) that are added together and multiplied by two.

Finally, t is the output value of the function, the trapezium rule approximation.

The initial value of v is calculated by adding together f(a) and f(b) on line 4. Lines 6 to 8 are a loop that

generates values of u and f(u). The value of f(u) is multiplied by two and added to the v variable on line 8

on each iteration of the loop. On line 10, the function is completed by multiplying the final value of the v

variable by half of h to create the value of t, which is outputted on line 11. Please note that a double

asterisk (**) is the exponent operator in Python (equivalent to ^ in most spreadsheet programs).

v+=2*((u**2)-(u**6))**(1/6.0)

t=(h/2.0)*v

return t

11

The midOrd function calculates the mid-ordinate rule approximation. The width of each strip is again

represented by the h variable; v is the variable which accumulates the values of f(x) and u produces the

values of x for which f(x) must be calculated. The calculated approximation is the variable, m.

Lines 6 to 8 are a loop which generates all values of u (line 7) and accumulates f(u) onto the v variable.

Line 10 calculates m by finding the product of the final value of v and h. Line 11 outputs m.

return m

11

The code which outputs and displays all the desired trapezium rule, mid-point rule and Simpsons rule

approximations is shown below.

Lines 3 to 5 display the approximations for the trapezium rule. Lines 4 and 5 are a loop that runs the trap

function using the lower and upper limits of the integral with a number of strips, starting from one, that is

Find the volume of gold required for a solid gold prismatic butterfly sculpture

doubled each time (the number of times it is doubled depends on the value of p). Line 5 creates the label

for each approximation so that each can be identified by type of approximation and number of strips.

Lines 7 to 9 do the same thing, using the midOrd function to obtain the mid-ordinate rule approximations.

Lines 11 to 13 calculate the Simpsons rule approximations by inserting the T n and Mn values into the

formula for it. They are obtained using the trap and midOrd functions respectively.

It should be noted that for each time the number of strips is doubled, the width of each strip is halved.

The second columns cells values were generated by dividing 0.95 by the cell to its left. Spreadsheet

software (Microsoft Excel) was used for this because of the speed and convenience offered by its drag-andfill function. For example, the formula in cell B3 was:

=0.95/A3

Find the volume of gold required for a solid gold prismatic butterfly sculpture

Under the notion that trapezium rule and mid-point rule approximations are under- and over-estimations

respectively, the actual solution to the integral must lie in the interval (0.6688323993493503,

0.668832406740728) and therefore, is 0.6688324 to seven significant figures since both bounds round to

this value.

4.ERROR ANALYSIS

I attempted to calculate the order of convergence for each of the approximations. I did this using the ratio of

differences (shown for Simpsons rule, but the same for trapezium and mid-point rules; column D):

() =

4 2

2

This was compared to the textbooks ratio of differences. My values converged towards roughly 0.397 for all

approximating methods, directly contradicting the expected values of 0.25 for the trapezium and mid-point

rules and 0.0625 for Simpsons rule. This suggests that the order of convergence for my integration

approximations are not second-order for trapezium and mid-point and fourth-order for Simpsons. Using

natural logarithms, I calculated the orders of convergence (column E):

For all three methods, the orders of convergence appear to converge towards 1.3333, or . It is therefore

4

3

reasonable to conclude that the orders of convergence for my integral are . The similarity in the orders of

convergence suggests that the speeds of convergence between my three methods are roughly the same.

Because I will use my Simpsons rule approximations to generate an improved approximation to my

integral, it can be deduced that the absolute error of each approximation is given by = kh 4/3, where k is the

constant of proportionality.

If I is the theoretical exact solution to the integral, I = S n = Sn kh4/3.

Combining together the general approximations of Sn and S2n and inserting the general expression for each

strip width, the respective values of I can be combined and eliminated to find the value of k:

From these calculations, the column labelled I gives the extrapolated value of the integral as

0.6688324054765 to 13 significant figures because from n = 4096 onwards, all but one of the values for I

round to this figure.

5.CONCLUSION

0.95 6

The solution to 0

This means that the integrals solution lies in the interval [0.66883240547645, 0.66883240547655). In the

context of my problem involving a solid gold prism, this means that the volume of gold required, in metres

cubed, lies in the interval [0.481559331943044, 0.481559331943116). This was obtained by multiplying the

integrals bounds by 0.72.

The volume of gold required for the sculpture is therefore 0.481559331943 m3 to 12 significant figures. It is

probably true that this level of precision is excessive in the context of measuring an amount of gold;

equipment would likely not be able to measure to this high degree of precision for the volume.

Find the volume of gold required for a solid gold prismatic butterfly sculpture

My chosen graphical function has near vertical portions (i.e. large gradients) towards the limits of x = -1 and

x = 1. If these had been the limits of my integral, the accuracy of my approximations may have been severely

compromised because f(-1) and f(0) both have values of zero. This would cause trapezium rule estimates to

be under-estimated to a much larger extent because of the zero value that is included in all calculations for

any number of strips; this would cause the approximations to have a much slower rate on convergence to

the true value because increasing the number of strips would lessen the effect that the zero value would

have on the approximation. Consequently, this would also cause the Simpsons rule estimate (partly

calculated using the trapezium rule estimate) to have a slower rate of convergence. Fortunately, because of

the real-world nature of my problem and hypothetical engineering constraints, this did not turn out to be a

problem for me.

My method for numerical integration is valid for finding the area beneath my chosen curve; the graph of y =

f(x) in figure 4 proves that the graph is always convex in my range of x values. The value of the second

derivative is less than zero for the entirety of my domain. Therefore, it is correct to say that the trapezium

and mid-point rule approximations are under- and over-estimates respectively, and so the true value of the

integral lies somewhere in between the estimates given by each of these two methods.
