Unformatted text preview: 1. a) Diﬀerentiating implicitly yz = ln(x + z ) (assuming this equation deﬁnes
z as a function x and y ), ﬁnd the rate of change of z in the direction of xaxis,
when x = 0, y = 0, z = 1.
b) Show that if u(t, x) = f (x + ct) + g (x − ct),then utt = c2 uxx .
2. The temperature at a point (x, y ) is T (x, y ) and Tx (5, 1) = 2, Ty (5, 1) = 3.
A bug crawls so that its position after t seconds is given by x = 1 + t2 , y =
cos (πt). How fast is the temperature rising on the bug’s path in 2 seconds.
3. A right circular cylinder is measured to have a radius of 10 ± 0.02 inches
and a height of 6 ± 0.01 inches. Estimate the error in the volume calculation
(the formula V = πr2 h was used).
4. Write the equation of the tangent plane to the level surface S : f (x, y, z ) =
ln xy 2 z 3 = 8 at (e, e2 , e).
