3. Bismuth-210 has a half-life of 5 days. 7 i. Assuming an initial sample of 2 grams, write down a formula for the mass, A(t), re- maining after t days. ii. After how many days will there be less than 1 milligram? (A milligram is one one thousandth of a gram.) iii. Compute the relative growth rate, #.

Extra Credit To solve calculus problems using computers it is common to replace derivatives by approx- . - imate differentiation formulas called difference formulas. One such formula which is often used is the following "second order backwards differentiation" (BDF2) formula: i. Use llHospital's rule to prove that if f is differentiable at x then the BDF2 formula \ O approximates f l ( x ) in the sense that: fr(x) = lim 3 f (x) - 4f (x - h) + f (x - 2h) 2h h+O \o ii. Now use 1'Hospital's rule to prove that if f is thrice differentiable at x then the BDF2 formula approximates f l ( x ) to second order in h in the sense that: 3 f ( x ) - 4 f ( x - h ) + f (x-2h) lim 2h h+O h2...
