(b) Find the interval of convergence of the series found in (a). 2) Find the Maclaurin series expansion of 2 0 ( ) sin( ) x S x t dt = . Hence evaluate S(0.1) with 3 10 error - . 3) Suppose that a particle moves through 3-space so that its position vector at time t is 2 3 ( ) t t t t = + + r i j k (a) Find the tangential and normal components of acceleration at time t. (b) Find the curvature of the path at the point when t=1. 4) The temperature T(x,y) at points on the xy-plane is given by T(x,y) = x 2 – 2y 2 . (a) In what direction should an ant at position (2, 1) - move if it wishes to cool off as quickly as possible? (b) At what rate would the ant experience the decrease of temperature if it moved from (2, 1) - at speed k in the direction of vector 2 - -
