School of Mathematics and Statistics The University of Sydney PHAR1812 Calculus Tutorial 1 1. Round off each of the following to three significant figures, giving your answer in scientific notation: ( i ) 3.7142 ( ii ) 0.003817 ( iii ) 12.00 ( iv ) 4.0032 ( v ) 92.65 ( vi ) 7894.0 ( vii ) 1237 ( viii ) 10452.2 2. An experiment resulted in readings of 253 . 71 units and 7 . 251 units. Calculate the sum and the product of these readings, rounding off your answers suitably. 3. Revision of differentiation — see Hughes-Hallett Chapter 4 Differentiate the following (with respect to x ) ( i ) y = x 4 / 3 ( ii ) y = x - 3 / 4 ( iii ) y = e x +5 ( iv ) y = (ln 4) e x ( v ) y = xe x ( vi ) y = x 2 + 5 x + 2 x + 3 ( vii ) y = ( x + 1) 99 ( viii ) y = xe - x 2 4. [More revision] Differentiate the following (with respect to t ). [The arguments for trigonometric functions are always in radians.] ( i ) y = tan t ( ii ) y = e cos t ( iii ) y = e t cos 3 t ( iv ) y = ln ( cos(1 - t 2 ) ) 5. The graph of the equation y = x 3 - 9 x

Unformatted text preview: 2-16 x + 1 has a slope of 5 at exactly two points. Find the coordinates of the points. 6. Consider the function f ( x ) = e sin x . Without plotting points, sketch the graph of this function by figuring out some of its properties. Is it periodic? Does it grow unboundedly like an exponential function? Does it ever take a negative value? Does it have any zeros? Does it have a maximum value? A minimum value? 7. ( i ) Show that the relative error for 1 m is approximately the same as that for m . ( ii ) Show that division of measurements causes relative errors to accumulate additively. [Hint: use part (i) and the fact that the multiplication of measurements causes the relative errors to be added.]...
