Hello, I am completing a project for class. In this project, we need to use differential equations to model different subjects for a trip to mars. I was assigned Food, Oxygen, and plant growth. However, I need some help with the equations. I have a system of equations at the bottom, but where do I go from here? Thanks for any help!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Mf- Food, Mo-Oxygen, Mh-hydroponic plants (for food and oxygen)

ΔMf = -k Δt

ΔMh = kMh Δt - a Δt

ΔMh/ Δt = kMh-a

Δt => 0

dMh/dt = kMh -a

ΔMf = -k Δt + a Δt

ΔMf/ Δt= a - k

Δt=> 0

dMf/dt = a - k

ΔMo = -k1 Δt -k2 Mh Δt

ΔMo/ Δt = -k1 - k2 Mh

Those will yield a system of equations...

dMf/dt = a-k

dMh/dt = kMh - a

dMo/dt = -k1 - k2Mh

# DEs to model food, oxygen, and hydroponic plants

Can you offer guidance or do you also need help?
