Continuity on [a,b] Informal Definition: A function f is continuous on [a,b] if its graph has no break.
Continuity at a point x 0 Informal Definition: A function f is continuous at x 0 if f(x) is defined at x 0 , and f(x) approaches f(x 0 ) as x approaches x 0 x x 0 =2 from either right or left f(x) f(2) x x 0 =2 from right f(x) -1 = f(2) Continuous at x 0 =2 Not continuous at x 0 =2

A drippy faucet adds one milliliter to the volume of water in a tub at precisely one second intervals. Let f(t) be the volume of water in the tub at time t. Choose the correct answer: (a) f is a continuous function at every time t (b) f is continuous for all t other than the precise instants when the water drips into the tub (c) f is not continuous at any time t Question

### What students are saying

• 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
