Fall 2010, MAT21B, Solution to Written Homework 5 1. Find the length of the parametric curve x = e t - t,y = 4 e t 2 , 0 t 1 . Solution: The length of this parametric curve is given by L = Z 1 0 s ± dx dt ² 2 + ± dy dt ² 2 dt = Z 1 0 q ( e t - 1) 2 + (4 e t 2 ) 2 dt = Z 1 0 e 2 t + 2 e t + 1 dt = Z 1 0 p ( e t + 1) 2 dt = Z 1 0 e t + 1 dt = e t + t ³ ³ 1 0 = e 2. Find the centroid (¯ x, ¯ y ) of the region bounded above by the curve y = x +2 and below by y = x 2 . Solution: Recall that ¯ x = M y M = R b a ˜ xdm R b a dm ¯ y = M x M = R b a ˜ ydm R b a dm So, we need to find ˜ x, ˜ y and dm for a typical strip. For a typical vertical strip, we have center of mass (˜ x, ˜ y ) = ´ x, x +2+ x 2 2 µ and dm = dA = ( x + 2 - x 2 ) dx These two curves intersect at ( - 1 , 1) and (2 , 4). Thus, M = Z 2 - 1 dm = Z 2 - 1 ( x + 2 - x 2 ) dx = 9 2 . 1

M x = Z ˜ ydm = Z 2 - 1 ( x + 2 + x 2 ) 2 ( x + 2 - x 2 ) dx = 1 2 Z 2 - 1 (( x + 2) 2 - ( x 2 ) 2 ) dx = 1 2 Z 2 - 1 ( x 2 + 4 x + 4 - x 4 ) dx = 36 5 and M y = Z ˜ xdm = Z 2 - 1 x ( x + 2 - x 2 ) dx = 9 4 . Therefore, ¯ x = M y M = 9 4 9 2 = 1 2 . ¯ y = M x M = 36 5 9 2 = 8 5 . 3. Find the area of surface generated by revolving the curve
