(assume that the lines are not parallel) (After Sept. 16) p. 650: 34* (15 pts.) (After Sept. 16) p. 802: 37, 39, 57* (10 pts.) (After Sept. 16) 1I-2, 1I-3, 1I-5 (After Sept. 17) 1J-2, 1J-5, 1J-6 (After Sept. 21) p. 858: 27, 37, 53–58 (ignore the labels on the axes in Figures 13.2.39–44, since they are misleading or wrong, depending on your interpretation) (After Sept. 21) 2A-1, 2A-5a (After Sept. 21) 2B-1a, 2B-3, 2B-10* (10 pts.) 2. Part B B.1) (After Sept. 17) Let PQ be the major axis of the elliptical orbit of a planet orbiting a sun. Suppose that the planet is moving at 80 km/s when it is at P , and 20 km/s when it is at Q . (a) (10 pts.) How far is the sun from P ? (Express the answer as a fraction of PQ .) (b) (15 pts.) How fast is the planet moving when it is at an end of the minor axis?

Sketch some level curves of the function max( | x | , | y | ). (b) (10 pts.) Find a function whose level curves are the same as in (a), but rotated 45 ◦ . B.3) (After Sept. 21, 10 pts.) Use the tangent plane approximation formula to estimate the root of x 2-5 . 99 x + 8 . 02 close to 4 without using a calculator . Then use a calculator to find the root to 5 places after the decimal point. Reminder: Please write “Sources consulted: none” at the top of your homework, or list your (animate and inanimate) sources.

    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.

    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.

    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.
