  1. This quiz builds on the one before.
  2. Now, the Euler method is in place and we want to experiment with the step size.
  3. If you look at the solution curves, you could get the impression
  4. that a step size of half a day is way too small.
  5. Why should we be stepping in half days. What about steps of say 5 days.
  6. Shouldn't that be working given these curves.
  7. Let's step size in and leave that step size in for which the solution just doesn't explode
  8. and accuracy of 1 decimal place is enough.
