Unformatted text preview: MATH 271 Test #3T Solutions (1) (20 points) A tank in the shape of a sphere with a radius of 5 meters is filled halfway with water (density: 1000 kg/m 3 ). The center of the tank is 20 meters underground. How much work does it take to pump the water to the surface? Evaluate the integral. (Note g = 9 . 8 m/s 2 .) Solution: The amount of work needed to pump the water to the surface is the integral of the weight of the water (in a thin slice) times the distance it has to be moved. The weight of the water is the density of water times g , times the cross-section area at a given depth, times dx . If the depth of the water is x , then the cross-section area of the tank is r 2 , where r 2 + ( x- 20) 2 = 5 2 (because the tank is 20 meters below the surface and is spherical with radius 5 ). The area is only counted for the bottom half of the tank, so 20 x 25 . The integral which represents the work needed to pump out all the water is 25 Z 20 (1000)(9 . 8)( r 2 ) xdx = 9800 25 Z 20 (5 2- ( x- 20) 2 ) xdx. To evaluate the integral, expand ( x- 20) 2 = x 2- 40 x +400 and multiply out the polynomial to get 9800 25 Z 20 25 x- x 3 + 40 x 2- 400 x = 9800 - x 4 4 + 40 x 3- 375 2 x 2 25 20 = 56 , 123 , 243 . 79 J The substitution u = x- 20 could also be made. Grading: This problem was graded on a 5 10 15 20 basis. Grading for common mistakes:- 5 points if the integral wasnt evaluated; +7 points (total) if the mass times a depth of 20 m or 25 m was used; +10 points (or more) if the expression involved an integra; +15 points (or more) if the integral of an area was found. 1 (2) Consider the two circles shown in the diagram below, which have the equations ( x- 2) 2 + y 2 = 4 2 and ( x +2) 2 + y 2 = 4 2 . The region inside both circles is sometimes called a vescica piscis ....
