Unformatted text preview: SECTION 4.3 HOW DERIVATIVES AFFECT THE SHAPE OF A GRAPH 297 60. At ﬁrst the depth increases slowly because the base of the mug depth of coffee is wide. But as the mug narrows. the coffee rises more quickly. _ . height
Thus. the depth (1 increases at an increasing rate and its graph is of mug concave upward. The rate of increase of d has a maximum
where the mug is narrowest; that is. when the mug is half full. It
is there that the inﬂection point (IP) occurs. Then the rate of increase of d starts to decrease as the mug widens and the graph time [0 f
becomes concave down. ﬁll mug
61. 100 From the graph. we estimate that the most rapid increase in the
V percentage of households in the United States with at least one VCR occurs at about t 2 8. To maximize the ﬁrst derivative. we need to determine the values for which the second derivative is 0. We‘ll use V(t) 2 a ‘ , and substitute a 2 85. b 2 53. and c 2 —0.5 later.
