Be sure to write on the front cover of your blue book: (1) your name, (2) your Student ID Number, (3) your TA’s name (Tathagata Basak, Tameka Carter, Alex Diesl, Clifton Ealy, Peter Gerdes, John Goodrick, Matt Harvey, George Kirkup, Andreas Lin, Rob Myers, or Kei Nakamura). Read the problems very carefully to be sure that you understand the statements. Show all your work as clearly as possible, and circle each final answer to each problem. When doing a computation, don’t put an “=” Sign between things which are not equal. When giving explanations, write complete sentences. You are more likely to get credit for a solution if it is written clearly. 1. [10 points] The error bound for the trapezoidal rule applied to the integral of f(a:) on an interval of length L, with n subintervals, is: M2133 < JETI - 127:2 ’ where M2 is any estimate for the second derivative of f, i.e. |f”(m)| 3 M2 for all m in the interval of integration. 7 Suppose that we want to integrate the function 37100 + 2 over the interval from 0 to 1, with an error of at most 0.01. Find a real number N such that using a subintervals, where n is an integer greater than N, will guarantee the required acauracy. 2.

[10 points] A particle moving along a straight line has velocity u(t) = 3tze_t meters per second after t seconds. (A) How far does it move during the first 10 seconds? (B) How far does it move during the next 10 seconds? (C) Where is the closest place to the origin that you could put a wall which will never be reached by the particle, no matter how long it moves? (Assume that the particle starts at the origin and moves toward the well.) 4. [10 points] For which values of the real number q is the improper integral I100 3‘1 sin2(1/m) dm convergent?

(A) Let m(t) be the mass at time t of the radium-226 in a sample. Write down a first-order differential equation which describes how m(t) changes with time. (B) How long does it take for the mass of the radium-226 in the sample to (imp to 1/8 times its initial value? 7.

    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.
