Math 116 Winter 2012 Team Homework 4 Problem 1 : A forest is 10 miles long. A wildfire starts at one end of the forest and moves in the opposite direction. Let x be the distance in miles from a point on the forest to the place where the fire started. The position of the head of the fire is propagating according to the function H ( t ) = 5 + 1 25 ( t - 5) 3 , where t is the time in hours since the fire started. 1. If the vegetation density in the forest is given by the function v ( x ) = 1000 e - 1 10 ( x - 5) 2 tons per mile. How much vegetation is in the forest? Include the appropriate units. 2. Find the time it takes the wildfire to to burn all the vegetation in the forest. 3. Let A ( t ) be the amount in tons of vegetation burned after t hours the fire started. Find a formula for A ( t ). 4. How much vegetation is left in the forest after 2 hours the fire started?
