Exam 1, Form A M170-007 Fall, 2010 Name: (1 pt.) Show all your work. Regardless of your prior experience with calculus, you must use limit methods for all derivatives on this exam. 1. (15 pts.) A moving object has position (in meters) given by f ( t ) = 3 t 2 - 5 t , with t in seconds. Find its position when its velocity is - 14 m/s. 2. The number of ±sh, P , in a pond is a func- tion of time t (in years) as shown at right. (a) (5 pts.) Compute Δ P on the interval [1 , 1 . 5]. (b) (5 pts.) Compute Δ P Δ t on the interval [1 , 1 . 5]. (c) (5 pts.) Draw a secant line that cor- responds to your answer to (b). (d) (10 pts.) Compute P (1 . 5). Show all work. P (±sh) t (years) 1

3. (10 pts.) Suppose that f ( x ) = 5 x . Compute f (7). 4. (10 pts.) Compute lim h 0 3 + h - 3 h . 5. (10 pts.) The graph of a function f ( x ) = - x 2 + 4 x - 3 is shown at right, along with a tangent line. Given that the y -intercept of the tangent line is 3 . 25, locate the x -coordinate of the point of tangency. HINT: f ( x ) = - 2 x + 4 f x 2
