Math 170-010 Homework 9/19 Fall 2011 Goal: Use your understanding of derivatives to work more complicated problems. Learn to recognize whether a problem requires that you compute slope, given location, or that you Fnd location, given slope. Note: You can use any of the easy derivative rules from the list we have developed so far. If you encounter a function NOT on the list, you have to resort to secant slope methods. Note: Before you start each problem, try to identify each problem as Type 1: “Given location, Fnd slope”, or Type 2: “Given slope, Fnd location”. Exercises: 1. ±rom Schaum’s , Chapter 9, Problem 19. 2. ±or each function in Problem 19, determine all locations where there is a slope of exactly - 2. 3. ±rom Schaum’s , Chapter 9, Problem 21. 4. ±rom Schaum’s , Chapter 9, Problem 22. 5. An object is dropped from a tower so that after t seconds its height above ground is h ( t ) = 100 - 16 t 2 feet. (a) What is its velocity after 2 seconds? (b) When is its velocity - 60 ft/s? (c) What is its velocity at the time when it hits the ground?
