A ladder of negligible thickness is to be taken horizontally from one hallway to the other. Find the length of the longest such ladder. Calculus Group I (2) Suppose that the points P , Q , R have coordinates ( 0, 5 ) , ( 0, 3 ) , ( x , 0 ) respectively. Find the value or values of x which maximize the size of angle PRQ . Calculus Group I (3) Let f ( x ) = Z x 1 1 1 + t 6 dt . Evaluate the integral Z 1 xf ( x ) dx . Calculus Group I (4) A baseball, hit by a baseball player at a 25 angle from 3 ft above the ground, just cleared the left-field wall. This wall is 35 ft high and 320 ft from home plate. Use the Ideal Projectile Motion Equation (in vector form) r ( t ) = (( v cos ) t + x ) i +- 1 2 gt 2 + ( v sin ) t + y j to answer the following questions. Note that g = 32 ft/sec 2 , and that i and j are the standard unit vectors: i = h 1, 0 i , j = h 0, 1 i . (a) How long did it take the ball to reach the wall? (b) What was the initial speed of the ball? (c) Would the same hit have cleared the right field wall which is 5 ft high and 420 ft from home plate? (show work) (d) For this hit, what is the position vector of the ball at its maximum height? Calculus Group I (5) A curve in the xy-plane is defined by the parametric equations x ( t ) = t 2 , y ( t ) = t 3- 3 t . This curve intersects itself at the point ( 3, 0 ) , and so it makes a self-enclosed loop as t ranges from- 3 to 3. (a) Find all points on this loop that have either horizontal or vertical tangent lines. (b) Calculate the area enclosed by the loop. Abstract Algebra Group I (6) The general linear group GL 2 ( R ) is the group of 2 2 invertible matrices with real entries. The group operation is ordinary multiplication of matrices. Letentries....
