Testing against the value ofE at the endpoints: E(O) = 1.4k(5) + 13k 2 20k. E(5.1) z 17.91:. E(13) % 19.5k. Thus. to minimize energy, the bird should ﬂy to a point about 5.1 km from B. (b) If W/ L is large. the bird would ﬂy to a point C that is closer to B than to D to minimize the energy used ﬂying over water.

But note that lim+(W/ L) : 00. so if the point at which E is a minimum is zaO close to B. then W/L is large. (d) Assuming that the birds instinctively choose the path that minimizes the energy expenditure. we can use the equation for dE/dx = 0 from part (a) with 1.4k : 6. ac : 4. and k 2 1: (c)(4) : 1 - (25 + 42)1/2 c : \/41/4 m 1.6. strength of source 62.

### 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.
