Find the area of the described region. inside: r = 3 sin θ ; outside: r = 1 + sin θ 1 1 Solutions Problem 1 : We begin by noting that d dx [ln(1 + x 2 )] = 2 x 1 + x 2 . We will use the following steps to find the power series (this is the Section 11.9 approach). Steps : (1) Find a power series representation for 2 x 1 + x 2 . (2) Use the fact the ln(1 + x 2 ) = Z 2 x 1 + x 2 dx (plus a constant C ). Let’s do this : (1) We will use 1 1- x = ∞ X n =0 x n , | x | < 1 (geometric expansion). 2 x 1 + x 2 = 2 x · 1 1- (- x 2 ) = 2 x · ∞ X n =0 (- x 2 ) n , | - x 2 | < 1 = 2 x · ∞ X n =0 (- 1) n x 2 n , | - x 2 | < 1 = ∞ X n =0 2(- 1) n x 2 n +1 , | - x 2 | < 1 So 2 x 1 + x 2 dx = ∞ X n =0 2(- 1) n x 2 n +1 , | x | < 1. Note that | - x 2 | < 1 ⇐⇒ | x | < 1. 2 (2) Use ln(1 + x 2 ) = Z 2 x 1 + x 2 dx (plus a constant C ). ln(1 + x 2 ) = Z 2 x 1 + x 2 dx = Z ∞ X n =0 2(- 1) n x 2 n +1 ! dx, | x | < 1 = ∞ X n =0 Z 2(- 1) n x 2 n +1 dx , | x | < 1 = ∞ X n =0 2(- 1) n Z x 2 n +1 dx , | x | < 1 = ∞ X n =0 2(- 1) n x 2 n +2 2 n + 2 + C, | x | < 1 = ∞ X n =0 (- 1) n x 2 n +2 n + 1 + C, | x | < 1 So we have ln(1+ x 2 ) = ∞ X n =0 (- 1) n x 2 n +2 n + 1 + C, | x | < 1. We can actually find the constant C . Let x = 0 . Then 0 = ln 1 = ∞ X n =0 (- 1) n (0) 2 n +2 n + 1 + C = 0 + C We see that C = 0. Here is the final answer (radius of convergence R = 1). ln(1 + x 2 ) = ∞ X n =0 (- 1) n x 2 n +2 n + 1 , | x | < 1 Problem 2 : Apply the Ratio test: a n = (4 x + 1) n n 2 . a n +1 a n = (4 x + 1) n +1 ( n + 1) 2 · n 2 (4 x + 1) n = (4 x + 1) n 2 ( n + 1) 2 → | 4 x + 1 | as n → ∞ ....
