1 Part I: Answer each of the following 15 multiple choice questions. Each correct answer is worth 2 marks. Question 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Answer Question 11 12 13 14 15 Total Answer 1. Which one of the following equations is solvable by the method of integrating factor? (a) dy dt + ty = y 2 (b) dy dt = 2 ty t 2 + 2 y (c) y 0 = t 2 + 1 y (d) dy dt - 2 y + 1 2 t = 2 t + 1 2 y (e) y 00 + 4 y 0 - 5 y = 0 2. Consider the initial value problem y 00 - y 0 + 1 4 y = 0 , y (0) = 1 , y 0 (0) = b. Find the critical value of b that distinguishes y ( t ) grows positively and negatively, as t → ∞ . (a) 1 4 (b) 1 2 (c) 1 (d) 2 (e) 4 3. The velocity v ( t ) of a falling object satisfies the initial value problem dv dt + 0 . 2 v = 9 . 8 , v (0) = 0 . Find the time that must elapse for the object to reach 98% of its limiting velocity.
