Eighteen months after rates are exposed to a formaldehyde concentration of 6 ppm, the percent of rats surviving is decreasing at a rate of about 1.5 per month. In other words, during the eighteenth month, an additional 1.5% of the rats die. We have f c (18 , 6) P c = 82 93 15 6 = 1 . 22 percent/ppm . If the original concentration increases by 1 ppm, the percent surviving after 18 months decreases by about 1.22. 14.1.18 (a) For points near the point (0 , 5 , 3) , moving in the positive x direction, the surface is sloping down and the function is decreasing. Thus, f x (0 , 5) < . (b) Moving in the positive y direction near this point the surface slopes up and the function increases, so f y (0 , 5) > . 14.2.2 We have f x ( x,y ) = 3 x 2 + 6 xy and f y ( x,y ) = 3 x 2 4 y, so f x (1 , 2) = 15 and f y (1 , 2) = 5 . 14.2.4 By the chain rule we have z x = x ( x 2 + x y ) 7 / = 7( x 2 + x y ) 6 (2 x + 1) = (14 x 2 + 7)( x 2 + x y ) 6 z y = y ( x 2 + x y ) 7 / = 7( x 2 + x y ) 6 ( 1) = 7( x 2 + x y ) 6 14.2.6 V r = 2 3 rh 14.2.8 T 2 r T = 2 r T 2 14.2.24 M 2 r 3 / 2 GM = 2 r 3 / 2 1 2 ( GM ) 3 / 2 ( G ) = r 3 / 2 M GM 14.2.26 z x = cos(5 x 3 y 3 xy 2 )(15 x 2 y 3 y 2 ) 1 14.2.30 x 1 2 e ( x ) 2 / (2 2 ) = 1 2 e ( x ) 2 / (2 2 ) 2( x ) 2 2 14.2.32 z x = 7 x 6 + yx y 1 , and z y = 2 y ln2 + x y ln x 14.2.36 (a) The difference quotient for approximating f u ( u,v ) is given by f u ( u,v ) f ( u + h,v ) f ( u,v ) h . Putting ( u,v ) = (1 , 3) and h = 0 . 001 , the difference quotient becomes f u (1 , 3) 1 . 001(1 . 001 2 + 3 2 ) 3 / 2 1(1 2 + 3 2 ) 3 / 2 . 001 41 . 1 (b) By the product rule and chain rule, we have f u = f u = ( u 2 + v 2 ) 3 / 2 + u 3 2 ( u 2 + v 2 ) 1 / 2 (2 u ) = ( u 2 + v 2 ) 1 / 2 (4 u 2 + v 2 ) , so f u (1 , 3) = (1 2 + 3 2 ) 1 / 2 (4(1 2 ) + 3 2 ) 41 . 11 . We see that the approximation in part (a) was reasonable. 14.2.40 (a) To calculate B t , we hold P constant and differentiate with respect to t : B t = t ( Pe rt ) = Pe rt r. In financial terms, B t represents the change in the amount of money in the bank as one unit of time passes by. (b) To calculate B P , we hold t constant and differentiate with respect to P : B P = P ( Pe rt ) = e rt . In financial terms, B P represents the change in the amount of money in the bank at time t as you increase the amount of money that was initially deposited by one unit....
