(b) y = x 2 - 3 x + 2 at the intercepts ( 1 , 0 ) , ( 2 , 0 ) , and ( 0 , 2 ) . 4. Find the third derivative of y = x 2 - 2 x . 5. The height h (in feet) of an object shot into the air from a tall building is given by the function h ( t ) = 800 + 80 t - 16 t 2 , where t is the time elapsed in seconds. (a) Write a formula for the velocity of the object as a function of time t . (b) What should be the velocity of the object when it reaches its highest point? when does this occur? (c) What is the maximum height reached by the object? (d) Write a formula for the acceleration of the object as a function of time t . 6.

(a) Find the points on the curve at which the tangent lines pass through the point ( 1 , 1 ) . (b) Prove that no tangent line to the curve passes through the origin. (c) Prove that there is one tangent line passing though the point ( A,A ) , A 6 = 0 , and it occurs at the point with x-coordinate A 2 . (d) Sketch the curve with a graphing device and illustrate the ideas above. 8. Write a formula for the derivative of each piecewise-defined function. Sketch each curve. (a) f ( x ) = √ x x ≥ x 2 x < (b) f ( x ) = e x x ≥ x + 1 x < 9. Write a formula for the n th derivative of the functions: (a) f ( x ) = 1 x (b) f ( x ) = √ x ——————————————————————-...
