Unformatted text preview: Math 100, 120, 153 Common Exam/Dec. 1994 Math 100, 120, 153 Common Exam Dec. 1994 Instructions: Students may bring and use one 8.5” x 11" information sheet. Calculators are allowed. Show all calculations for your solutions. Do All Eight Questions In Part A. 1. [15 marks] (8) Find f’(1) if f(:c) = (22: + 3)e'. (b) If y = ln(a: + «EL—1 , find dy/dz. (c) Find the slope of the tangent line to the curve y = W at z = 1. (d) Find the :c-coordinate of the point where the curve y = 2'22 — 2’ has a horizontal tangent line. 2. [6 marks] Use the definition of derivative to calculate f’ (2) for the function f(a:) = x/z’ + 5. No marks will be given for using any differentiation rules in this question. 3. [10 marks] The equation 3/3 + z’y = 10 has a solution y = f (1:) that satisfies f(3) = 1. (:1) Find f’(3). (b) Check that f” (3) = 557. Page 1 (c) Use the results of parts (a) and (b) to make a sketch showing the relationship between the graph of y = f(a:) near (3,1) and its tangent line at that point. Give reasons to justify your sketch. 4. [10 marks] At time t the biomass M = M (t) of a cell culture is given by 4 M=1+3e-¢‘ (a) Find lim M(t) and tlim}M(t). t—i—oo b Calculate m and verify that w— = 1M (4 — M). t“ dt 4 (c) What is the maximum rate of growth of M? 5. [10 marks] Two variable resistors, R and S, are connected in parallel, so that their combined resistance C is given by 1-1+; 0—H 5' At an instant when R = 250 ohms and S = 1,000 ohms, R is increasing at a rate of 100 ohms/ minute. How fast must .3 be changing at that moment if C’ is increasing at a rate of 10 ohms/minute? 6. [10 marks] Four identical squares are cut out of a rectangle of cardboard 5 ft by 8 ft as shown in the figure, and the remaining piece is folded into a closed, rectangular box, with the two extra flaps tucked in. What is the Math 100, 120, 153 Common Exam/Dec. 1994 largest possible volume for such a box? 7. [10 marks] The function f has the following properties: ,lésmflz) =1, f(-1)= 0. f<o)=1. m) = 2. f'($) = €514.53 for all real numbers 1:. (3) Find the intervals on which f is increasing and decreasing, and any local maximum or minimum values of f. (b) Find the intervals on which the graph of f is concave up and concave down. At what values of a: does the graph of f have inflection points? (c) Sketch the graph of f. 8. [9 marks] Evaluate the following limits: Page 2 ‘ . lna: (a) sin(1rx)' , 1 1 0’) 321367;)- . 1/12 (c) 1135 (sec 2:) . Part B Consists Of Four Questions. You Are To Do Two Of Them. You Must Specify Which Two You Want Marked. 9. [10 marks] Suppose that the function f satisfies lim “1) — 5 = 2-42 2:2 — 4 3' (8) Find f(a:). (b) Given that f is continuous at a: = 2, show that f is differentiable at :c = 2 and find f’(2). 10. [10 marks] When fired from rest at ground level, a small rocket rises vertically so that its acceleration after t seconds is 6t m/sz. This continues for the 10 seconds that its fuel lasts. Thereafter, the rocket’s acceleration is 9.8 m/s2 downward, due to gravity. In other words, the acceleration a(t) is given by a(t)={6t if0<t<10 —9.8 if 10 < t < T, where T is the time at which the rocket strikes the ground after falling back. Find explicit formulas for v(t), the velocity of the rocket, and y(t), the height of the rocket, t seconds after it is fired. Both formulas should be valid for 0 s t g T. 11. [10 marks] Suppose that the function f (2:) satisfies , l H l — _. .__. < < .— f — 1, and 2 f (2:) for all z > f0) = 4, Math 100, 120, 153 Common Exam/Dec. 1994 Page 3 (3) Find the best linear (tangent line) approximation you can for the value of f (3). (b) Find the smallest interval that you can be sure contains f (3). 12. [10 marks] A function [(x) is continuous on the interval [a, b] and satisfies a5f(:c)$b for aSsz. (a) Prove that there exists at least one number c in [a, b] such that f (c) = c. (b) If f also satisfies |f’(z)| < 1 for a g a: 5 b, prove that there is exactly one number c in [a, b] such that f (c) = c. ...
