Discussion Sheet 7 1.) Use the Intermediate Value Theorem to verify that the following equation is solvable, then use Newton’s Method to estimate the value of the solution to four decimal places :
(m — 1)3 = 10 + ./E 2.) Find the slope and concavity of the graph of my2 + y = 2 at a; = 0 and at as = 1 . Sketch the graph of this equation. 3.) The volume V of a sphere is changing at the rate of 7r ft.3/ min. At what rate is the
sphere’s surface area S changing when a.) S = 41r ft.2 ? ‘ b.) S = 367r ft.2 ? 4.) Find the height h and radius r of a right circular cone of maximum volume which can
be inscribed in a sphere of radius 1 ft. 5.) Car B is 30 miles directly east of car A and begins moving west at 90 mph. At the same moment car A begins moving north at 60 mph.
