The porosity of the soil in a circular field, x 2 + y 2 1, is given by p ( x,y ) = 4 x 2 + 2 y 2 2 y . Find the locations in the field where water will drain the fastest and slowest ( i.e. the absolute maximum and minimum porosity). 2. A goldsmith wants to make a gold brooch in the shape given in polar coordinates by r 1 sin( ). The density of gold she is going to use on this brooch design is given by ( x,y ) = 2 + 3 radicalbig x 2 + y 2 . Sketch the shape of the brooch and determine the total amount of gold she will need to use. Hints: 1) the area of this shape is 3 2 ; 2) sin 2 ( a ) = 1 2 (1 cos(2 a ))....
