Let S be the sphere of radius 1. Set up and then evaluate the integral expressing the volume of S using (a) the method of crosssections and (b) the method of cylindrical shells. Solution. (a) Consider the plane parallel to the y z coordinate plane and intersecting the xaxis at the point x. The intersection of this plane with the interior of the sphere is a disk of radius 1
£ (b) The shpere can be obtained by rotating the halfcircle y 1 x2 about the yaxis. If we ﬁx a value of x and rotate the resulting line, we get a cylinder of radius x and height 2 1 x2 . If we let x vary between 0 and 1, the resulting cylinders combine to ﬁll up the whole sphere. Thus the volume is

We know that Kb a3 K3 13 K E 2 2 24n 24n 3n2 where K is the maximum value of the absolute value of the second derivative of f x x on 1 12 1 32 ,f x . We see that f x is monotone increasing 1 3 . We compute f x x x 2 4 on 1 3 and therefore its maximum is attained at x 3 and its minimum is attained at x 1.Since 1 1 and f 1 f3 4 , we see that

2 FIRST MIDTERM 6 Problem 5. Sketch the graph of the function f x e x . Indicate the limits at inﬁnity, maxima, minima and inﬂection points. Please use the coordinate axes drawn below.
1.4 1.2 1 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0 0.2 0.4 2 1 0 Solution. The graph is the “bell curve”. 2 We have that f x 2xe x , which is zero at x 0. So there is only one extreme point. Also, the function is increasing on ∞ 0 and is decreasing 0 ∞ , since the ﬁrst derivative is postitive on ∞ 0 and negative on 0 ∞ . 2 2 2 Since f x 2e x 2x 2xe x 2 4x2 e x we see that f x 0 if 4x2 2, i.e., x 2. Thus the inﬂection points are at x 2 and x 2. Since f 0 0, it follows that the only extreme point is a maximum. On the interval ∞ 2,f x 0, so the function is concave up. On the interval 2 2, fx 0 and so the function is concave down. Finally, on the interval 2 ∞ the second derivative is again positive, and the function is concave up. 2 Lastly, as x ∞, x2 ∞ and so e x 0. Thus
