I need a rational function/equation beyond the contrived d=rt and work problems typically given in beginner algebra.
I am teaching such a class and would like to motivate the study of techniques for solving rational equations by a legitimate example. Wikipedia lists the following applications:
(i) fields and forces in physics, (ii) spectroscopy in analytical chemistry, (iii) enzyme >kinetics in biochemistry, (iv) electronic circuitry, (v) aerodynamics, (vi) medicine >concentrations in vivo, (vii) wave functions for atoms and molecules, (viii) optics and >photography to improve image resolution, and (ix) acoustics and sound
In particular, I think the enzyme kinetics, medicine concentration, and acoustic/sound applications might be most accessible, but am having difficulty finding actual calculations. Can you please provide an example and/or a resource?
