First Midterm Exam, Spring 2002 University February 19, 2002 Instructions: this is a 75 minute elmui book exam. It is a pledged exmn.
Please write the pledge on your exam script. You may not use calculators at
all. Please Show all working. You may leave numerical answers unsiinpliﬁed. 1‘ Suppose you are given the differential equation (t '7 3)2y’ : By. (a) (7 points) Is the function y(t) rt U33) a solution? (b) (3 points) What is the value of the slope of the tangent line of a
solution passing through the point (t, y) : (471)? (e) (15 points) Solve the given differential equation with initial condition
y(0) : 36 including the interval of existence (here a is the base of the
natural logarithm i.e. c = (21 2 271828.“). ‘2, Suppose a mass of 4kg is moving under the inﬂuence of gravity (use 9 = 1.0
2
m/s (a) ( 10 points) if the air—resistance is proportional to the velocity of the
object with constant of proportionality 7‘ (Where r > 0), ﬁnd the
formula for the velocity of the object for t 2 0 if the velocity at time
I, :7 0 seconds is m/s (NOTE: this formula will involve r). (h) (5 points) Suppose you also know that the terminal velocity of the
object is ~10 m/ Find the time at which the object is at its highest
point. (e) (5 points) Find the height of the object at the highest point if it starts
out at a height of 15 metres above ground love] (do not simplify your
expression for the height). 3. Suppose a swimming pool of total volume 4000 litres initially has 1000
litres of a salt solution of concentration 2 kg/litre. Suppose salt solu»
tion of concentration 0.4 kg/litre is being poured into the pool at a rate
of 10 litres/ minute and Salt xolution is leaving the pool at a rate of :3
litres/minute. Assume that all solutions mix instantaneously. CONTINUED OVER PAGE (a) (5 points) Show that the differential equation modelling the total
amount of salt: A : AU) (measured in kg) in the pool at time 1‘
(minutes) is given by: (IA ,
—— : '1 ~ A/ 20 + t
(it ’ i 0 ) (h) (12 points) Solve this dillerentinl equation to ﬁnd a formula for A :
AU). (c) (3 points) Find the total amount of salt in the pool at the time it
becomes full, 1‘ Suppose a lake has a logistic model for the population of ﬁsh P r PU}
(trtime in days) given by the equation = P(1 ~ P/GOO) Suppose also
that people fish this lake and remove 10 percent of the fi‘sh population per
day. (a) 2 points) Write a model for the population of ﬁsh in the lake (b) (10 points) Find the phaseline for this model. ((2) (4 points) Classify each equilibrium solution as stable or unstable. ((1) (4 points) If at t 4: i) the population is 200 ﬁsh, what, value will the
population of fish approach as i a +90? Suppose you are given the differential (quation y’ : ~(s2’y3,
. A (a) (5 points} Find the mlum of K that make [1“) : Re" a solution to
gt!" this equation (where K is a constant).
riff (b) (10 points) If y : Mt) is also a. solution and y(0) = 0.5 what is / limtﬁoc 1,10,)? (NOTE: you don‘t necessarily need to solve the ODE to answer this question but you must justify your :uiswer fully). ...
