It continues to bounce, each time reaching a height 90% of the height reached on the previous bounce. Find the total distance that the ball travels. The ball has gone 30 ft at the first return to the launch point, then 2(15)(.9) more feet at the second return, 2(15)(.9)(.9) at the third return, etc. The total distance is then 30 = 300feet. 30 + 30(.9) + 30(.9)2 + 30(.9)3 + · · · = 1 − .9 3.2 Use the integral test to determine the convergence of the following series: b) ∞ 1 n=1 a) n 3/2 ∞ n n n=1 e a) Series converges if and only the improper integral ∞ − 3/2 dx = 2 < ∞ so series converges. 1x ∞ 1 x−3/2 dx converges. b) Series converges if and on...
