Math 138 Assignment 4 Fall 2008 The following questions are to be answered neatly and completely on standard size (8.5 by 11 inch, or metric equivalent) paper. Please insure that your name and ID number are clearly indicated on each page, and that all your pages are securely fastened together, staples are preferred. This assignment is due at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, October 10, 2008 . 1. Use Comparison to determine the convergence or divergence of the following: a) Z 1 x x x + x 2 dx b) Z π 0 sin 2 x x dx 2. Show that every member of the family of functions y = ln | x | + C x is a solution to the differential equation x 2 dy dx + xy = 1 . 3. Use Euler’s method with step-size 0.2 to estimate y (1), where y ( x ) is the solution to the initial-value problem y 0 = 1 - xy , y (0) = 0. 4. Solve each of the following: a) y 0 = y 2 sin x b) xy 0 + y = y 2 , y (1) = - 1 5. Newton’s Law of Cooling states that the rate of cooling of an object is proportional to the difference

Unformatted text preview: between the object’s temperature and the temperature of its surroundings. A cup of coffee has tem-perature 95 ◦ C when poured in a room where the temperature is 20 ◦ C . Suppose that we know that the rate of cooling is 1 ◦ C per minute when the coffee is 70 ◦ C , solve the differential equation to find an expression for the temperature of the coffee as a function of time. Please note that assignments may be submitted to the drop box before the due date. Assignments will be removed from the drop box shortly after the time they are due. The drop boxes are located on the fourth floor of the Math and Computer building (MC) outside room MC 4066. Check the course outline for the box/slot for your assignment....
