± ² ³ ´ 18.01 Practice Questions for Exam 1 Solutions will be posted on the 18.01 website Problem 1. Evaluate each of the following: d x a) dx 1 + 2 x x =1 d b) ( u ln 2 u ) (simplify your answer) du d Problem 2. a) Evaluate 1 k cos 2 t , where k is constant. dt b) Check your answer to part (a) by showing that if k = 1, your answer agrees with the derivative calculated by a simpler method. d 1 Problem 3. Derive the formula for directly from the deFnition of dx x 2 derivative. (You will need to transform the diﬀerence quotient algebraically before taking the limit.) d Problem 4. Derive the formula for sin 1 x by solving y = sin 1 x for x and dx using implicit diﬀerentiation. (You may use the known values of D sin x and D cos x in your derivation. Your answer must be expressed in terms of x .) Problem 5. ±ind all values of the constants a and b for which the function deFned by ax + b,

Unformatted text preview: x > 1 f ( x ) = 2 x − 3 x + 2 , x ± 1 will be diﬀerentiable. Problem 6. Evaluate the following, with enough indications to show you are not just guessing: tan 2 u a) lim u u e h − 1 b) lim (relate it to the value of a derivative) h h Problem 7. A hawk is pursuing a mouse. We choose a coordinate system so the mouse runs along the x-axis in the negative direction, and the hawk is ﬂying over the x-axis, swooping down along the exponential curve y = e kx , for some positive constant k . The hawk in ﬂight is always aimed directly at the mouse. It is noon at the equator, and the sun is directly overhead. When the hawk’s shadow on the ground is at the point x , where is the mouse? 1...
