0 2 Problem 1 b.A spring has a natural length of 1 meter. If a 24 N force is required to keep it stretched 3 meters beyond its natural length, how much work is required to stretch
itfrom3mto4m? Solution. We ﬁrst must ﬁnd the spring constant via the formula F = km, where F is the
force, It is the spring constant, and a: is the distance beyond the natural length. We have
stretched it 3 meters beyond natural with 24 N, therefore, 24 = k a: 3 or, solving for k, k = 8.
We now wish to ﬁnd the amount of work to stretch it from 3m to 4m. All our calculations are done With respect to the natural length, so we stretch it from 3 — 1 = 2 meters beyond
natural to 4 — 1 = 3 meters beyond natural, so the integral is 3

2 Problem 1 c. Find the volume of the solid generated by revolving about the yaxis the
region bounded by the x—axis and y = 33: + 3:3 from cc = 0 to a: = 1. Solution. Since we are revolving this around the y—axis and we have a function giving y in
terms of :13, it would be easiest to make our elements of area parallel to the axis of revolution.
The formula is b
/ 27r * radius * height a: width Our radius is the distance from the axis of revolution, or just as, our height is simply our
function 39: + 1:3 and the width is the tiny dz. Our limits of integration are given, so we have 1
/ 27ra:(3x + x3)dx
o Problem 1 d. The tank shown on the test is full 03 water. Given that water weighs 62.5
pounds per cubic foot, ﬁnd the work required to pump the water out of the tank. Solution. For the sake of simplicity, I will call the topcenter of the tank the origin. That
gives us an easier formula for for the size of the tank, since the walls can now be described
via x2 + 3/2 = 25 for a 2 dimensional slice of the tank. Our formula topofwater
/ Density * (Distance to travel) * (Tiny volume of water)
battanwfwater Looking from above, we see that our tank is circular, so our tiny volume is going to be 7rr2dy.
The radius is simply the a: value for the wall of the tank, so 7‘2 is :62, and solving from above,
we get 2:2 = 25 — y2. So, our tiny volume of water is «(25 — y2)dy. Since we are calling the
top of the tank 0, then the bottom of the tank is ——5. We see that if we are y, which lies
between —5 and 0, then we have —y feet to travel to get to the top. So, our distance is —y.
The water ﬁlls the entire tank, from y = —5 to y = 0, so we now sum up /0 62.5(—y) * 1r(25 — y2)dy 5 Problem 1 e. For the lamina of density ,0 formed by the region bounded by y = 231/3
and the x—axis from a: = 0 to x = 0, ﬁnd the xcoordinate of the centroid. Solution. The bottom function here is the xaxis, that is, y = 0. We are given our limits
of integration, so we simply substitute our values into the formula f: 551/3 * axis: 5; =
