3. (15 points) Two flies are sitting on a spherical balloon while it is being inflated at a constant rate of 5 cubic centimeters per second. If one fly is sitting at the north pole and the other is on the equator, how quickly is the distance between them (measured along the balloon) changing when the balloon has a radius of 3 cm? Define each variable you use, and simplify your answer. (Note:

Unformatted text preview: the surface area of a sphere of radius r is 4 πr 2 , and its volume is 4 3 πr 3 .) 4. Consider the function f ( x ) = x 2 ln x . a) (2 points) Give the interval of x-values for which the function is defined. b) (10 points) Give a mathematical justification of the behavior of the function at each end of this interval. 4. c) (12 points) Find all relative maxima and minima of f , giving full mathematical justification. 4. d) (8 points) Find any inflection points of f , giving full mathematical justification. e) (6 points) Sketch a graph of y = f ( x ) that includes all interesting features of the curve. Include the scales used on your axes. 5. (15 points) One hallway (which is 4 feet wide) meets another hallway (which is 8 feet wide) in a right-angled corner. What is the length of the longest ladder which can be carried horizontally around the corner? Give an exact answer, assuming the ladder has no width....
