Question 53 - In the purchase of a machine with a period n = 8.5 years, the minimum attractive rate of return, i = 12 %, the cost P = $55000, F = $4000 is the salvage, annual maintenance A = $3500. The return of the investment or equivalent uniform annual benefit is $15000. The equivalent uniform annual cost is P (A / P, i, n) + A - F (A / F, i, n). The investment is considered acceptable only when equivalent uniform annual benefit is greater than the equivalent uniform annual cost. From the compound interest table, (A / P, i = 12 %, n = 8 years) = 0.2013, (A / P, i = 12 %, n = 9 years) = 0.1877, (A / F, i = 12 %, n = 8 years) = 0.0813, (A / F, i = 12 %, n = 9 years) = 0.0677. Prove by calculations whether the investment above is acceptable.

Answer 53 - (A / P, i = 12 %, n = 8.5 years) = (0.2013 + 0.1877) / 2 = 0.1945. (A / F, i = 12 %, n = 8.5 years) = (0.0813 + 0.0677) / 2 = 0.0745. Equivalent uniform annual cost = P (A / P, i = 12 %, n = 8.5 years) + A - F (A / F, i = 12 %, n = 8.5 years) = $55000 (0.1945) + $3500 - $4000 (0.0745) = $13899.5 < $15000 (equivalent uniform annual benefit). The investment is proven acceptable.

Question 89 - A hemocytometer is a device that is used for counting cells. In an engineering experiment, 100 microlitres of cell suspension is diluted with 50 microlitres of Trypan blue dye. Only death cells appear blue in color when stained with the dye. There are 57 cells detected in a hemocytometer, where 5.3 % of them appear blue when the chamber of the meter is placed under a microscope. Each square of a chamber can contain 0.0001 mL of liquid. (a) Calculate the number of viable cells. (b) The cells ocupied 5 squares. Calculate the average number of viable cells / square. (c) Calculate the dilution factor of the cell suspension by using the formula : Dilution = final volume / initial volume. (d) Calculate the concentration of viable cells / mL by using the formula : Concentration = (Average number of viable cells / square) x dilution x (square / volume).

ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.13 : (i) In the Present Value Multiplication Rule, let PV = present value, Ra = interest rate for first discount, A = duration for first discount; Rc = interest rate for second discount, C = duration for second discount. Let PV = [ 1 / (1 + Ra) ^ A ] [ 1 / (1 + Rc) ^ C ] where ^ is the symbol of power : 3 ^ 2 = 3 x 3, 2 ^ 3 = 2 x 2 x 2. (a) For discounts involving 8 % / year for 3 years and 10 % / year for 9 years, find the value of PV. (b) If Re = interest rate for third discount, E = duration of third discount, form a mathematical equation of PV as a function of A, C, E, Ra, Rc, Re. Note : Discounts are available in the purchase of certain biochemical engineering instruments. (ii) Let R = nominal interest rate related to growth rate of money, r = real interest rate related to growth rate of purchase power. If I = inflation, where the unit of R, r and I is %, find the mathematical relatonship of r as a function of R and I.
