Tran, Tony – Homework 2 – Due: Sep 4 2007, 3:00 am – Inst: Samuels 1 This print-out should have 12 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. Yes, Homework 1 is due AFTER Homework 2. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A car first slows down, but then speeds up. Sketch a graph of the position of the car as a function of time. 1. time position 2. time position 3. time position 4. time position 5. time position 6. time position correct Explanation: When the position of the car is plotted against time, the slope of the graph indicates the speed of the car, the greater the slope, the greater the speed, and the car is stationary when the slope is zero. Thus of the graphs, only

Tran, Tony – Homework 2 – Due: Sep 4 2007, 3:00 am – Inst: Samuels 2 time position has the given properties. Keywords: graphical interpretation speed, position v. time graph 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The point P (1 , 2 7 ) lies on the graph of the function f defined by f ( x ) = 2 x 4 + 3 x . By calculating the slope of the secant line PQ for the successive points Q ( x, f ( x )) with x = 1 . 1 , x = 1 . 01 , x = 1 . 001 , x = 1 . 0001 , and x = 0 . 9 , x = 0 . 99 , x = 0 . 999 , x = 0 . 9999 , estimate (to 3 decimal places) the slope of the tangent line to the graph of f at P . Correct answer: 0 . 163 . Explanation: The slope of the secant line PQ for general points P ( a, f ( a )) and Q ( b, f ( b )) on the graph of f is given by rise run = f ( b ) - f ( a ) b - a .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
