Question 3 1 / 1 pts Which of the following tables give a linear relationship between t and w? I. t 1 3 5 7 w 2 1 0 -1 II. t 1 2 3 4 w 2 3 5 8 III. t 1 2 3 4 w 1 4 9 16 Correct! I. only. None are linear. All are linear. II. and III. only. III. only. In I. the relationship is linear. In II. and III. the relationships are not linear. In both cases, the rate of change of is increasing.

The average rate of change of over the interval is Question 6 1 / 1 pts Find the relative change of the quantity T if T changes from 0.7 to 0.05. Reminder: calculator can be used on quizzes if needed. approx 1.30 approx -0.29 Correct! approx -0.93 approx 0.48 approx -13.0 The relative change in is , where is the new value of and is the previous value of .

Question 7 0 / 1 pts The table below shows the wind chill temperature, T, in degrees Fahrenheit when the ambient temperature is 20F, as a function of the wind speed in miles per hour (mph). Calculate the average rate of change in the wind chill temperature (in degrees F per mph) when the wind speed changes from 0 to 20 mph. The average rate of change here gives us the change in the windchill temperature for a 1 mph increase in windspeed (on average). wind (mph) 0 5 10 15 20 2 5 30 35 windchill temp (F) 20 13 9 6 4 3 1 0 You Answered -2.5 F per mph -0.2 F per mph 4 F per mph -1.4 F per mph Correct Answer -0.8 F per mph The average rate of change (in windchill temp per mph) is the change in windchill divided by the change in windspeed: 4-20 ----------= -16/20= -0.8 per mph

20-0 Question 8 1 / 1 pts The table below shows the Earth's atmospheric pressure p in kiloPascals (kPa) as a function of the altitude h, in kilometers (km), so p = f(h). Is f(h) an increasing function or decreasing function? Is it concave up, concave down, or linear? h (altitude in km) 0 2 4 6 8 10 p = f(h) (pressure in kPa) 100 80 6 2 47 35 27 f(x) is decreasing and concave down. Correct! f(x) is decreasing and concave up. f(x) is increasing and concave down. f(x) is decreasing linearly. f(x) is increasing and concave up. is decreasing. Notice that the size of the decrease is getting smaller as gets larger. This means that is concave up. This may be more clear by looking at a plot plot of the points in the table

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
