(a) Write an equation of the tangent line to the curve y = f (m) at :2: = 1. (b) Use linear approximation to give an approximate value for f (1.2). 8. A particle moves along the x-axis so that its position at time t is given by a: t3 — 4t2 + 1. (a) At t = 2, what is the particle’s speed? (b) At t = 2, in what direction is the particle moving? (c) At t = 2, is the particle’s speed increasing or decreasing? 9. Let f(z) = mm for :1: > 0. (a) Find f’(a:). (b) At what value of a; does the curve y = f (2:) have a horizontal tangent line? (c) Does the function f have a local minimum, a local maximum, or neither of these at the point :2: found in part (b)? 10. You are using Newton’s Method to locate a. root of the equation f (as) = 0, and you make an initial guess \$0 = 2 for the root.

You want to get to a town B on the road 18 km east of A. If your dune buggy can travel at an average speed of 15 km/h through the desert, and _30 km/ h along the road, towards what point on the road should you head to minimize your travel time from P to B? 14. A water tank has the shape of a circular cone with top radius 6 metres and vertical depth 9 metres. Water is pouring into the tank at a constant rate of 141r cubic metres per hour, and is simultaneously leaking out of a large hole at the bottom at a rate of 21rh cubic metres per hour when the vertical depth of water in the tank is h metres.

### 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
