Exam 1, Part 1, Form A M170-010, Fall, 2011 Name: (1 pt.) Show all your work. There are no trig, log, or exponential derivatives today, so you may use any methods on any problem. 1. A object placed in a furnace heats up. Its temperature, T , as a function of time, x , is shown in the graph below. Temperature is measured in C; time is measured in minutes. (a) (5 pts.) Find Δ T on [2 , 7]. Give correct units. (b) (5 pts.) Find Δ T Δ x on [2 , 7]. Give correct units. (c) (5 pts.) Sketch a secant line in the graph that corresponds to your answer to (b). 2. (10 pts.) Compute lim u x 1 x 2 - 1 u 2 x - u 1

Unformatted text preview: 104 (a) (10 pts.) What is the rate of change of population at the instant t = 4 months? (b) (10 pts.) When is the rate of change approximately 8 rabbits/month? 4. (10 pts.) f ( x ) = √ 9-x 2 . Find the slope of the tangent line at x = 2. 5. (10 pts.) A ball thrown up in the air has a height of h ( t ) = 15 t-5 t 2 meters after t seconds. At the instant when velocity is-12 m/s, how high is the ball? 6. (5 pts. ea.) For each of the following functions, compute f ′ ( x ). Assume that a and b are constants. Assume that g is an unknown function of x . (a) f ( x ) = 10 + x + ax 2 (b) f ( x ) = 10 x 3-4 x 7 x + g (c) f ( x ) = x ( ax + b ) 3 2...
