Workshop 6 1) Suppose R is the region in the plane enclosed by y = x 2 and y = 4. a) Compute the perimeter P and area A of R , and then compute the ratio Q = A/P 2 . Note By squaring the perimeter the ratio becomes independent of the units chosen to measure the region. b) Compute this ratio Q = A/P 2 for these four regions: the region R , a square, a circle, and an equilateral triangle. Draw the figures in increasing order of Q . 2) The point P travels on the parabola y = x 2 . a) Give parametric formulas for the location of P where the parameter is the first coordinate of the point P . b) Give parametric formulas for the location of P where the parameter is the second coordinate of the point P . The parametric formulas will have to be given “piecewise”. c) Give parametric formulas for the location of

The parametric formulas again will have to be given piecewise. 3) Sketch the cardioid r = 1-sin . What percentage of its enclosed area is above the x-axis? What percentage of its enclosed area is inside a circle of radius 1 centered at the origin?...
