(b) Determine the path Fritzy will take if Chewbacca runs exactly twice as fast as he does; that is, v1 = 2v2 . Use your calculator to graph this path for x > 0. Describe the behavior of y as x → 0+ and interpret this physically. (c) With the help of your classmates, generalize parts (a) and (b) to two cases: v2 > v1 and v2 < v1 . We will discuss the case of v1 = v2 in Exercise 10 in Section 6.5. 324 5.3.2 Further Topics in Functions Answers √ 1.
