Tide Modeling
Kelvin Kwok
In this modeling assignment, I will develop a model function for the relationship between time of day and the height of the tide. I will first show the data in a table form copied from the assignment sheet. Then I will use the data to construct a scatter graph of time against height, then I will develop a function that models the behavior noted in the graph analytically, and describe any variables, parameters or constraints for the model. In the end I will modify the same model using the regression feature of graphing software to develop a bestfit function for the data. This modeling task will allow me to find out what is the best time that a good …show more content…
And D is the principal axis, as the min. value and max. value has already changed, so the new value for D would be 12.15+0.82=6.475
Hence we will get a modified function y=5.675sinx2+π12+6.475
Diagram3 Graph of the modified function y=5.675sinx2+π12+6.475 in method4
From diagram 3, we can see that the modified function has passed through 11 data points in total, which is 3 times more than the old function. So it is obvious a better fit to the data points.
Method 5: Decide what time a good sailor should launch their boat based on the model in method 4
An outgoing tide is a receding tide , i.e. a tide that decreases from it’s max height(crest) to its min. height(trough), from our observations on the graph in method 4 , the max. height of the tide occurs at 2.6 hours after midnight and 15.2 hours after midnight which is 2:36am and 3:12pm respectively. However, it’s more sensible to launch a boat in day light rather than in the dark, therefore the best for a good sailor to launch a boat would be 3:12pm. But since the function modeled in part 4 is not a perfit fit, therefore the perdiction of the best time to launch a boat is a theoretical guess.

1740 Words  7 PagesTides and the Moon Name AST/101 Date Teacher Tides and the Moon I was recently tasked with examining the relationship between the Earth’s moon and the Earth’s tides. I took that to mean literally: how are the tide levels of Earth’s bodies of water affected by the Moon? When approaching this question I want to do so with the scientific method in mind. The scientific method refers to a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous…

The Moon and Tides Observation Essay
965 Words  4 Pagesknown as tides. The gravitational pull from the Moon results in the bulging of the ocean on the sides of the Earth that are aligned with the Moon. One bulge forms on the side of Earth that is nearest the Moon when the water is pulled towards the Moon. As the Moon pulls on the Earth, another bulge forms as the Earth is slightly drawn away from the water on the opposite side. The areas on Earth that are experiencing the two bulges will see high tide and the nonbulge areas will experience low tide. The…

A Bore Tide is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travels up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay's current. Anchorage, Alaska is known for its famous Bore Tides. These bore tides occur at least once a day during high and low tide. Yet, health warnings are applied to viewing bore tides during low tide. Tourists have died by getting stuck in glacial…
