Math 116 - Lab 6 - Fall 2011. Student number: Second derivatives; concavity; curve sketching; optimization problems (Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.6 and 4.7 of L/G). 1. In each of the following, calculate f 00 ( x 0 ) and determine whether the graph of f ( x ) is concave up or concave down at x 0 : a) f ( x ) = sin(2 x ); x 0 = π/ 4 , b) f ( x ) = e - 5 x ; x 0 = 1 , c) f ( x ) = ln(5 x ); x 0 = 12 . 2. In each of the following, find the second order critical points of f ( x ) and determine which ones (if any) are inflection points: a) f ( x ) = x ln( x ) , b) f ( x ) = cosh( x ) , c) f ( x ) = sinh( x ) , d) f ( x ) = 1 1+ e - x . 3. For what values of a and b is the graph of f ( x ) = ax + e - bx always concave up?
