    Error in MFE

    I believe I have found an error in edition 5 of the ASM MFE manual that is not included in the errata.

    On page 298 (solution to answer 13.12) the final line is incorrect.

    It reads: P = 40*exp(-.12)*(0.4641) - 40*exp(-.20)*(0.6591) = 8.18

    It should read: P = 40*exp(-.12)*(0.6591) - 40*exp(-.20)*(0.4641) = 8.18


    Regards,

    Have you considered sending a message to Abe Weishaus by means of e-mail or messaging him on here. He is the author of the manual in question and can update the errata.

    I did end up contacting the author and the correction now appears in the errata.
