C. HECKMAN MAT 266 Solutions, 12:15 class Test 2 (1) [10 points] Use a convergence test to determine whether n =0 7 n · (2 n 2 + 1) ( n + 1)! converges. Solution: If a n = 7 n · (2 n 2 + 1) ( n + 1)! , then | a n | = a n , and so L = lim n + | a n +1 | | a n | = lim n + 7 n +1 · ( 2( n + 1) 2 + 1 ) ( n + 2)! · ( n + 1)! 7 n · (2 n 2 + 1) = lim n + 7 n + 2 · 2 n 2 + 4 n + 3 2 n 2 + 1 = 0 · 1 < 1 , so the Ratio Test states that the series converges. Grading: +3 points for setting up the Ratio Test, +2 points for cancelling, +2 points for taking the limit, +3 points for the Ratio Test’s conclusion. Grading for partial credit: - 1 point for ( n + 1)! ( n + 2)! = 1 n + 1 ; +8 points (total) for bad can- cellation with the correct result (assuming the cancellation was the correct way); +5 points (total) for bad cancellation with the incorrect result (even assuming the cancellation was the correct way). 1

(2) Let R be the region bounded by the curves y = x 5 and x = y 10 . (a) [10 points] Find the area of R . [0.742] Solution: Either LEFT RIGHT (TOP - BOTTOM) dx = 1 0 x 1 / 10 - x 5 dx or TOP BOTTOM (RIGHT - LEFT) dy = 1 0 y 1 / 5 - y 10 dy , both of which equal 49 66 . Grading: +3 points for the form, +3 points for finding the limits, +4 points for substitution. (b) [15 points] Find the centroid of R . [(0.449,0.500)] Solution: x, ¯ y ) = 1 0 x ( x 1 / 10 - x 5 ) dx 1 0 x 1 / 10 - x 5 dx , 1 0 1 2 ( x 1 / 10 ) 2 - ( x 5 ) 2 dx 1 0 x 1 / 10 - x 5 dx = 22 49 , 1 2 . Grading: +5 points for each integral. (c) [10 points] The region R is rotated around the line y = 1. Find the volume of the resulting solid, stating which method you used. [2.332] Solution: If the washer method was used, the integral is RIGHT LEFT πR 2 - πr 2 dx = 1 0 π ( (1 - x 5 ) 2 - (1 - x 1 / 10 ) 2 ) dx, and if the cylindrical shell method was used, the integral is TOP BOTTOM 2 πR (RIGHT - LEFT) dy = 1 0 2 π (1 - y )( y 1 / 5 - y 10 ) dy, both of which equal 49 π 66 . Grading: +3 points for the form, +4 points for substitution, +3 points for the name of the method. Grading for common mistakes: - 2 points for the incorrect method. = 2
(d) [10 points] A plate in the shape of R is submerged in water so that the upper tip is one meter below the surface of the water, and the plate is vertical. Find the hydrostatic force acting on the plate. [10 . 913 · 10 3 N] Solution: The easiest place to put y = 0 is at the bottom of the plate, since it is described using equations. Then, the depth of the water above height y is 2 - y , and the width of the plate at height y is y 1 / 5 - y 10 . The hydrostatic force is then TOP BOTTOM g · Density of liquid · Distance from y to water level · Width of plate at height y dy or 1 0 (9 . 8)(1000)(2 - y )( y 1 / 5 - y 10 ) dy = 120050 11 .

### What students are saying

• 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.
