MATH 2403F3-F8 Practice Problems for Midterm 2 Fall 2009 TIME: October 1 (Thursday), 2009, 12:05-13:05 (the length of the exam is 60 min) PLACE: Howey Physics L1 (where we meet on Tuesdays & Thursdays) COVERAGE: Lectures 09/08-09/24 EXAM POLICY: No calculator. No books. No notes, except for one formula sheet of letter size handwritten by yourself. Turn in this formula sheet with your test. The problems below are only meant for your practice. The real problems on the exam will not be the same. The amount of questions will also not be the same. Good luck! [1] For each of the following equations, find general solutions; solve the initial value problem with initial condition x 1 (0) = - 1 , x 2 (0) = 2; sketch the phase portrait, identify the type of each equilibrium, and determine the stability of each equilibrium. (a) dx 1 dt = - 2 x 1 - 13 x 2 , dx 2 dt = x 1 +4 x 2 (b) dx 1 dt = x 1 + x 2 , dx 2 dt = - 2 x 1 - x 2 (c) dx 1 dt = 3 2 x 1 - 4 x 2 , dx 2 dt = 5 x 1 - 5 2 x 2 (d) dx 1 dt = x 1 +4 x 2 , dx 2 dt = - x 1 +5 x 2 (e) dx 1 dt = - 5 x 1 - x 2 , dx 2 dt = 4 x 1 - x 2 (f) dx 1 dt = - 2 x 1 , dx 2 dt = - 2 x 2 [2] Find all equilibria, identify the type of each equilibrium, and determine the stability of each equilibrium: (a) dx 1 dt = (4 - x 1 - x 2 ) x 1 , dx 2 dt = ( - 2 + x 1 ) x 2 (b) dx 1 dt = - x 2 1 + x 2 2 + 3 , dx 2 dt = - x 1 + 2 x 2 [3] For each of the following equations, find general solutions; solve the initial value problem with initial condition y (0) = - 1 , y (0) = 2;

### What students are saying

• 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.
