Unformatted text preview: Math 250 NAME: Fall 2007 Exam 2 ID No: SECTION: This exam contains 10 questions on 10 pages (including this title page). This exam is worth a total of 100 points. The exam is broken into two parts. There are six multiple choice questions, each worth 5 points, and 4 partial credit problems. To receive full credit for a partial credit problem all work must be shown. When in doubt, ﬁll in the details. No notes, books or calculators may be used during the exam. Please, Box Your Final Answer (when possible). Multiple Choice Section 1. (5 points) Suppose the Wronskian of two functions f and g is W(f,g) = sin(a:). Which of the follwing statements is FALSE? (a) f and g are linearly independent on any open interval. (b) f and g are linearly independent on the interval (—g, (c) f and 9 can be solutions to a second order linear homogeneous dif- ferential equation on the interval (d) f and 9 can be solutions to a second order linear homogeneous dif- ferential equation on the interval (0, 7r). 2. (5 points) Which of the following is a suitable form for a particular solution y(t) to the differential equation y” + 6y' + 93; = 2138'3t + 48"“ cos(t) + 56'3" sin(t) ? A, B, C, D below are constants. (a) Ate'3‘ + Bra-3‘ cos(t) + Ce‘3t sin(t) (b) Ath‘3t + Be‘3‘ cos(t) + Ce'3‘sin(t) (c) (At2 + Bt)e‘3‘ + Cite-3‘ cos(t) +Dte‘3‘ sin(t) (d) (Art3 + Bt2)e‘3‘ + 06"“ cos(t) + De‘3‘ sin(t) l0 3. ( 5 points ) A spring is stretched L meters by mass of 4 kilograms. The system is set in motion at time t = 0 by an external force F(t) = sin(wt) Newtons. Assume no damping and take 9 = 10m/secz. Then resonance will occur when (a) w2L = 10. (b) w2L = ‘20. (c) ng = 30. (d) sz = 40. 4. (5 points) If Y1=t. Y2=t+2e‘, Y3=t+e‘+e-t are solutions to a nonhomogeneous differential equation 3/” + p(t)y’ + W)?! = 9(t), where W) 75 0, then the general solution to this differential equation is (a) c1t+ 02(t + 26‘) + c3(t + e‘ + e"), where cl, 02, 63 are any constants. (b) c1t+ Cge‘ + (236", where c1, c2, (:3 are any constants. (c) alt + c2(t + 2e‘) + t + et + e“: where (:1, o; are any constants. (d) cle‘ + ago“ + t, where (:1, c2 are any constants. 5. {5 points) A spring—mass system has mass 4kg and spring constant 9m/secz. What is the critical value of the damping constant 7 (the value for which the system goes from underdamped to overdamped state)? (a) 'y = 4 kg/sec (b) '7 = 6 kg/sec (c) 7 = 9 kg/sec (d) 7 = 12 kg/sec 6.
