Unformatted text preview: Name: You have fifteen minutes to complete the quiz. If anything seems unclear, please ask. 1. Pacman consists of the space above the region pictured, and below the upper hemisphere center (0, 0, 0) and radius 1, together with the corresponding space below the xy -plane and above the lower hemisphere. Find the volume of Pacman. (4 points) 2. Set up integrals of a general function f (x, y ) over the regions pictured. Use whichever of Cartesian and polar coordinates gives a simpler integral. (3 points) 3. The floor of a box, modeled by [0, 2] × [−1, 1] is heated, with the heat coming in at the left hand edge. The position of a mouse is governed by the probability density function m(x, y ) = (2 − x)/4 0 if 0 ≤ x ≤ 2 and −1 ≤ y ≤ 1 . otherwise Find the probability the mouse is in the left-hand (warmer) half of the box. (3 points) 1 Solutions If you have any questions and / or think you’ve spotted a mistake / typo, please get in touch with me. 1. The formula for the hemisphere given in polar coordinates is 1 − r2 . f (r, θ) = The volume we want is thus equal to 1 7π/4 1 − r2 rdrdθ V =2 0 π/4 (the ‘2’ is there as the integral only gives the ‘upper half’ of Pacman). Solving this, the inner integral is 1 1 3 1 1 − r2 rdr = − (1 − r2 ) 2 3 0 = 0 1 . 3 The outer integral is 7π/4 π/4 1 6π/4 π 1 dθ = (7π/4 − π/4)) = =. 3 3 3 2 Hence the volume of Pacman is π . Alternatively, note that the volume of a sphere of radius 1 is 4π/3, and that Pacman is 3/4 of a sphere, so has volume (3/4)(4/3)π = π . 2. The first one is easier in polar coordinates, and is given by 0 1 f (r cos(θ), r sin(θ))rdrdθ. −π/4 0 The second one is easier in Cartesian coordinates, and is given by √ 0 3 /2 0 √ −x/ 3 f (x, y )dydx. 3.
