Unformatted text preview: (a) f ( x ) = sin-1 2 x (b) For f ( x ) = sinh(2 x ), nd f (0). Give a numerical value. 7.  Carbon-14 decays exponentially and its half-life is about 5700 years. (a) For an initial 5 lb. amount of Carbon-14, nd the function, y ( t ), that describes how much is left after t years. (b) Suppose that charcoal from a tree that was killed during the volcanic eruption when Crater Lake was formed now contains 2/5 (40%) of its original Carbon-14. How long ago did the eruption occur? 8.  Find the minimum values of the function f ( x ) = x ln x . 9.  Use logarithmic dierentiation (show your work) to nd the derivative of y = (1 + x ) 2 x . 10.  Calculate each integral: (a) Z 1 x (ln x ) 2 dx (b) Z 1 1 + 9 x 2 dx 11.  Calculate the limit. Show each step: lim x x 2 e-x...
