M408C, Homework 5 — Solution Instructor: Guoliang Wu 1. Find the derivative of the function y = ax + p x 2 + b 2 - 2 , where a and b are constants. Solution. Use Chain Rule, y 0 = - 2 ax + p x 2 + b 2 - 3 a + 1 2 x 2 + b 2 2 x = - 2 ax + p x 2 + b 2 - 3 a + x x 2 + b 2 2. Find y 00 by implicit differentiation x 4 + y 4 = 1 . Solution. Taking the first derivative, 4 x 3 + 4 y 3 y 0 = 0 y 0 = - x 3 y 3 Taking one more derivative using the quotient rule, y 00 = - 3 x 2 y 3 - x 3 3 y 2 y 0 y 6 = - 3 x 2 y - 3 + 3 x 3 y - 4 ( - x 3 y - 3 ) = - 3 x 2 y - 3 - 3 x 6 y - 7 3. If a tank holds 5000 gallons of water, which drains from the bottom of the tank in 40 minutes, then Torricelli’s Law gives the volume V of water remaining in the tank after

Unformatted text preview: t minutes as V = 5000 ³ 1-t 40 ´ 2 , ≤ t ≤ 40 (1) Find the rate at which water is draining from the tank after 10 minutes. (2) At what time is the water flowing out the fastest? The slowest? 1 Solution. (1) The rate at which water is draining from the tank after t minutes is V = 10000 ± 1-t 40 ² (-1 / 40) = 25 4 ( t-40) . (2) Since V is linear, at t = 0 the water is flowing out the fastest, and at t = 40 the slowest. 2...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
