Student Name: Sections 2.7 (Due: Tuesday, 09/18) Description : This homework will help you understand different ways to interpret the derivative. Show all work to get full credit. 1) Consider the curve y = x - x 4 . (a) Find the slope of the tangent line to the curve at the point (1, 0). (b) Find an equation of the tangent line in part (a). y = 2) Consider the following curve. y = 5 + 4 x 2 - 2 x 3 . (a) Find the slope of the tangent to the curve at the point where x = a . m = (b) Find the equation of the tangent line at the point ( 1 , 7 ). f ( x ) = (c) Find the equation of the tangent line at the point ( 2 , 5 ). g ( x ) = 3) If a rock is thrown upward on the planet Mars with a velocity of 14 m/s, its height (in meters) after t seconds is given by H = 14 t - 1.86 t 2 . (a) Find the velocity of the rock after one second. m/s (b) Find the velocity of the rock when t = a . m/s (c) When will the rock hit the surface? t = seconds (d) With what velocity will the rock hit the surface? m/s 4) Find
