LabTime Mart/M ,2. 100% Si: Inche/wlv‘r o (10 Points) Print your name and lab time in legible, block lettering above
AND on the last page where the grading table appears. 0 This exam should take up to 70 minutes to complete. You will be given at
least 70 minutes, up to a maximum of 80 minutes, to work on the exam. 0 This exam is closed book. Collaboration is not permitted. You may not use
or access, or cause to be used or accessed, any reference in print or electronic
form at any time during the exam, except one double-sided 8.5” x 11” sheets
of handwritten notes having no appendage. Computing, communication,
and other electronic devices (except dedicated timekeepers) must be turned
off. Noncompliance with these or other instructions from the teaching staff—
including, for example, commencing work prematurely or continuing beyond the
announced stop time—is a serious violation of the Code of Student Conduct.
Scratch paper will be provided to you; ask for more if you run out. You may
not use your own scratch paper. 0 The exam printout consists of pages numbered 1 through 8. When you are
prompted by the teaching staff to begin work, verify that your copy of the
exam is free of printing anomalies and contains all of the eight numbered
pages. If you ﬁnd a defect in your c0py, notify the staff immediately. 0 Please write neatly and legibly, because if we can’t read it, we can’t grade it. o For each problem, limit your work to the space provided speciﬁcally for that
problem. No other work will be considered in grading your exam. No exceptions. 0 Unless explicitly waived by the specific wording of a problem, you must ex-
plain your responses (and reasoning) succinctly, but clearly and convincingly. c We hope you do a fantastic job on this exam. MT1.1 (30 Points) The continuOus-time function 95 characterized by
Vt E R, 23(t) = eatemﬁ‘ﬁ) is ubiquitous in the engineering and physical sciences. The parameters a, w, and d)
are all real-valued. Suppose x is the trajectory of a particle on the complex plane. We may think of :r(t)
as the instantaneous position of the particle at time t. Each part below specifies a set of values for a, w, and a3. For each part, provide a
well-labeled sketch of the particle’s trajectory m in the time interval [0, 00); use an
arrow to specify the direction of the particle’s journey as time moves forward. On
each sketch, indicate the location of the particle at time instants t = 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5,
and 2 seconds, and show where the particle is headed as t —> 00. (a) 0:0,w%—w/2,and¢=0. t: O x“) "-l

your reasoning succinctly, but clearly and convincingly.

ﬁeld 'of unit radius. They run independently, so neither makes any strategic ad-
justment based on what the other one is doing. ' George completes one lap in Tg seconds. Harry takes Th seconds to complete a lap.
Harry is the slower one, so Tg < Th. Naturally, George overtakes Harry periodically. How long does it take George to
overtake Harry if they start their jog together at time t = 0? Hint: Let 0905) and 0;,(t) denote the respective angular positions (in radians) of George and Harry on the track ﬁeld at time t. Then 6 9(t) = 271' /T and 6h(t)— — 271' /Th

T0 it takes George to overtake Harry for the first time after their jog begins. Express
