MATH 151 Answers to Assignment 5 Autumn 2009 1. The side of a cube is reported as 20 ± 0 . 05 mm. Use diFerentials to estimate the percentange error in the volume of the cube. V = x 3 ; dV =3 x 2 dx . Here x = 20 and dx =0 . 05. So dV V = 3 · 20 2 · 0 . 05 20 3 . Answer : 0 . 75% 2. ±ind d 2 dx 2 ln( e x + e - x ). Simplify your answer as much as possible. d dx ln( e x + e - x )= e x + e - x ( - 1) e x + e - x d 2 dx 2 ln( e x + e - x )= d dx ± e x - e - x e x + e - x ² = ( e x - e - x ( - 1))( e x + e - x ) - ( e x - e - x )( e x + e - x ( - 1)) ( e x + e - x ) 2 = ( e 2 x + 1 + 1 + e - 2 x ) - ( e 2 x - 1 - 1+ e - 2 x ) ( e x + e - x ) 2 Answer : 4 ( e x + e - x ) 2 3. Use logarithmic diFerentiation to ²nd d dx (1 - sin x ) 3 x . Let y = (1 - sin x ) 3 x . Then ln y =3 x ln(1 - sin x ). DiFerentiating both sides gives y ± y = 3 ln(1 - sin x )+3 x - cos x 1 - sin x Answer : (1 - sin x ) 3 x ³ 3 ln(1 + sin x ) - 3 x cos x 1+sin x ´ 4. ±ind d dt ln 3 (1 + sin 2 t ). Answer : 3 ln 2 (1 + sin 2 t ) 2 sin t cos t 1 + sin 2 t (over) Typeset using A M S -T E X.

Unformatted text preview: angle of the elevation of the Sun is 30 and is increasing at 0 . 1 per minute. Let the length of the shadow of the tower be x feet and the angle of elevation of the Sun (in radians). d dt = 180 . 1 = 1800 per minute. We need to Fnd dx dt = / 6 . 200 x = tan ; x = 200 tan = 200 cot . dx dt =-200 csc 2 d dt . dx dt = / 6 =-200 ft csc 2 6 1800 1 min =- 1 2 2 9 12 in min A C B x 200feet Answer : 3 inch per minute end...
