Sketch three equally spaced level curves (contours) for the function f(x,y) = A: [18pts] 7. A 1 kg rocket is ﬁred at a mountain slope with initial velocity :70 :< 27 27 4 > m / s and position 770 :< 0,070 > m. The rocket thrusters produce a force FR :< 272 — 5%,6 — 5x/t > N and acceleration due to gravity is 10 772/52. (a) Write an equation for the acceleration of the rocket as a function of time.
