School of Mathematics and Statistics The University of Sydney PHAR1812 Calculus Tutorial 4 1. ( i ) Sketch a smooth curve whose slope is everywhere negative and increasing gradually (i.e. becoming less negative). ( ii ) Sketch a smooth curve whose second derivative is everywhere negative but whose first derivative is everywhere positive. ( iii ) Sketch a smooth curve whose first and second derivatives are everywhere negative. 2. For each of the following functions y = f ( x ) find y 0 , y 00 and sketch the curve y = f (
