Practice Midterm #3 1. Trig Functions (a) Find the derivatives of the following functions. i. y = sec x ii. T = 5 - t cos(4 πt ) (b) If a 10 inch pendulum is swinging so that the angle θ of the pendulum with the vertical axis is given by θ = . 25 cos(8 πt ), where t is the time in seconds, what is the rate of change of θ when t = 3? (c) Verify y = cos 2 x + sin 2 x satisﬁes the equation y 00 + 4 y = 0.
