Name: EXAM SOLUTIONS Instructor: Section: 1. Do not open this exam until you are told to do so.
2. This exam has 12 pages including this cover. There are 9 problems. Note that the problems
are not of equal diﬃculty, so you may want to skip over and return to a problem on which
you are stuck.
3. Do not separate the pages of this exam. If they do become separated, write your name on
every page and point this out to your instructor when you hand in the exam.
4. Please read the instructions for each individual problem carefully. One of the skills being
tested on this exam is your ability to interpret mathematical questions, so instructors will
not answer questions about exam problems during the exam.
5. Show an appropriate amount of work (including appropriate explanation) for each problem,
so that graders can see not only your answer but how you obtained it. Include units in your
answer where that is appropriate.
6. You may use any calculator except a TI92 (or other calculator with a full alphanumeric
keypad). However, you must show work for any calculation which we have learned how to
do in this course. You are also allowed two sides of a 3 × 5 note card.
7. If you use graphs or tables to ﬁnd an answer, be sure to include an explanation and sketch
of the graph, and to write out the entries of the table that you use.
8. Turn oﬀ all cell phones and pagers, and remove all headphones. Problem Points 1 12 2 12 3 9 4 12 5 11 6 14 7 13 8 8 9 9 Total 100 Score Math 116 / Exam 1 (October 12, 2011) page 2 1. [12 points] Indicate if each of the following is true or false by circling the correct answer. No

the years. Suppose p(t) gives the rate at which photos are uploaded to Facebook’s servers, over
a certain oneweek period, in millions of photos per day. (t = 0 corresponds to the beginning
of Sunday.) A graph of p(t) is given below.

Facebook from the beginning of Sunday through the end of Monday. Include units in your
answer.

0 0 b. [8 points] Estimate the value of the deﬁnite integral in part (a) using LEFT(2), RIGHT(2),
MID(2) and TRAP(2). Write each sum in terms of p.
Solution: ∆t = 2−0
2 = 1, so the width of each rectangle in the Riemann sums is 1. Then LEFT(2) = p(0)∆t + p(1)∆t ≈ 35 · 1 + 40 · 1 = 75 million photos
RIGHT(2) = p(1)∆t + p(2)∆t = 40 · 1 + 27.5 · 1 ≈ 67.5 million photos
MID(2) = p(0.5)∆t + p(1.5)∆t = 38 · 1 + 35 · 1 ≈ 73 million photos
LEFT(2) + RIGHT(2)
75 + 67.5

= 71.25 million photos

to quarrel over whether Smokey’s toe slipped over the foul line. Meanwhile, you decide to pass
the time by ﬁnding a mathematical model for the shape of a bowling pin. After some careful
thought, you ﬁnd that a fallen pin is a solid of revolution given by rotating the region under
the curve
B (x) = 1.2 + 5.32x − 1.485x2 + .135x3 − .004x4
over the interval [0, 15] about the xaxis. The region is pictured below. All measurements are
in inches. A helpful stranger in the bowling alley informs you that the wood used to make the
pin has density δ = 17 grams per cubic inch.

need to evaluate this integral.
Solution: Since the bowling pin is a solid of revolution, the volume of a cylindrical slice
located x inches from the base of the pin can be approximated by πB (x)2 ∆x. Thus, the
mass of the slice is approximately
δπB (x)2 ∆x = 17π 1.2 + 5.32x − 1.485x2 + .135x3 − .004x4 2 ∆x, so that the mass of the entire pin is

curve y = x2 and the xaxis, with 0 ≤ x ≤ 8. One of the responsibilities of the gardener, is
to keep the garden free of a poisonous weed. The density δ of the weed at any point in the

current that varies sinusoidally with a frequency of 60 cycles per second (Hz). The voltage is
given by the equation
E (t) = 170 sin(120πt),
where t is given in seconds and E is in volts.

(Hint: sin2 θ + cos2 θ = 1.) sin2 θdθ. Show all work to receive full credit. Solution: We ﬁrst note that sin2 θdθ = sin θ(sin θ)dθ, so that we may take u =
sin θ, dv = sin θdθ (and du = cos θdθ, v = − cos θ). Then integration by parts gives
sin2 θdθ = sin θ(− cos θ) −
= − sin θ cos θ + − cos θ(cos θ)dθ
cos2 θdθ. Using the trig. identity given in the hint, we obtain
sin2 θdθ = − sin θ cos θ + 1 − sin2 θ dθ = − sin θ cos θ + dθ − sin2 θ. The integral on the far right also appears on the left, so combining like terms, we get
