Unformatted text preview: Oct. 25, 2007 Instructions: Math 112, Prelim 2 Time: 7.30 9p.m. 1) Write your name, your instructor's name, and the section number on the front cover. 2) Show all your work. A correct answer may get little credit unless the method is correct. 3) Do the problems in any order you like, but label the answers clearly. 4) This is a closed book test. Calculators, notes, or crib sheets are not allowed. The four problems are worth 25 points each. Parts of the same problem have roughly equal weight. 1) Consider the region R enclosed by the curves C B# and C ÈB. a) Use the slicing method ("washer" shaped slices) to find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the Baxis. b) Use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume obtained by rotating R around the Caxis. 2 bonus points if you can explain any obvious relationship between the answers to a) and b). NOTE: R is rotated around different axes in a) and b). 2) Consider the curve C ÈB above the Baxis from B ! to B 4. (a) Find its arc length by integrating with respect to C. (The following formula may be helpful: ' sec$ . " sec tan " ln lsec tan l G ) # # (b) Find the area of the surface that is obtained by rotating this curve around the Baxis. (In both parts of this problem roughly twothirds of the credit is for setting up the correct definite integral. Ration your time accordingly.) 3) A solid has a flat base whose boundary is the ellipse given by the equation *B# "'C# "%%Þ Every crosssection of the solid perpendicular to the Baxis is a square. Find the volume of the solid. (See the figure on the back.) 4) Given the parametric curve, for ! > # , B # cos > '> C # sin >
.C a) Find .B (as a function of >) b) At which point(s) ÐBß CÑ on the curve is the tangent line to the curve horizontal? c) Is the tangent line to the curve ever vertical? Explain. z y (0,3) (−4,0) (4,0) x (0,−3) ...
