8. Consider the boundary value problem (Please view the attachment for proper formatting of this question)

phi'' + lamda*phi = 0

phi(0) - phi'(0) = 0

phi(1) + phi'(1) = 0.

a) Using the Rayleigh quotient, show that lambda > 0.

b) Show that

tan sqrt(lambda) = 2 sqrt(lambda)/(lambda - 1).

Determine the eigenvalues graphically. Estimate the large eigenvalues.
