ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.6 : In a random walk, a stochastic process starts off with a score of A. This is a score for a chemical engineering test. At each discrete event, there is probability p chance you will increase your score by B and a (1 - p) chance you will decrease your score by C. The event happens T times. Let D = expected value of score. (a) Form an equation of D as a function of A, B, C, T and p. (b) Find the value of D if A = 60, B = 1, C = -1, T = 50, p = 0.5.

CHEMICAL MATERIAL BALANCE - EXAMPLE 2.3 : A 1.5 weight % aqueous salt solution is concentrated to 4 weight % in a single-effect evaporator. The feed rate to the evaporator is F = 7500 kg / h and the feed is at 85 degree Celsius. The evaporator operates at 1 bar. By assuming that only pure solvent of water exists in the form of vapor from the feed, calculate the flow rate of such vapor V.

ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.3 : (a) In the M / M / 1 queue that happens with randomness, let State 0 = the queue and server are empty, State 1 = the server is in use and the queue is empty, State 2 = the server is in use and 1 is in the queue, State 3 = the server is in use and 2 in the queue. Let P (0) = probability of State 0, P (1) = probability of State 1, P (2) = probability of State 2, P (3) = probability of State 3 and so on. If c = constant, P (1) = c P (0), P (2) = c [ c P (0) ], P (3) = c { c [ c P (0) ] }, write an equation that involves P (N), P (N + 1) and c. (b) Let L = market price of risk, r = riskless rate, m = expected return, s = volatility. Given that L = (m - r) / s related to oil prices, expected return = 12 %, s = 20 %, riskless rate = 8 %, calculate the market price of risk.
