(4)

9) Apply the 1st and 2nd derivative tests to find the critical and inflection points,

increasing, decreasing, concave up and concave down intervals, for

, and sketch the graph.

10) Find the dimensions of the right circular cylinder of maximum volume that can be

inscribed in a cone with height 15 cm and base radius 7 cm. (make a diagram!)

(5)

11) Use differentials to approximate the maximum error in the

calculated volume of a sphere if the radius measures 12 inches

with an error in measurement of ! 0.06 inches.

(4)

12) A point P(x, y) moves along the graph of y^{ 2} = x^{ 2} - 9

such that dx/dt = 1/x units/sec. Find dy/dt at the point (5, 4).

(4)

.

13) A civil engineer is designing a "sound-blocking wall" for a

housing development situated near a highway curve.

The curve follows the rule

The diagram is a scaled down version of the situation.

Find the coordinates of **T,** the point to build the wall for maximum

sound-blocking effect. The wall must be parallel to the line **PQ**.

(5)

14) Find the most general antiderivative of

a) | b) | c) (hint: divide) |

(6)

15) Solve these differential equations subject to the given conditions:

a) f '"(x) = 6x, f "(0) = 2, f '(0) = -1, f(0) = 4 | b) f "(x) = x + cos x, f '(0) = 2, f(0) = 1 |

(6)

16) A point moves on a coordinate line with a(t) = 2 - 6t.

If the initial conditions are v(0) = -5, and s(0) = 4, find s(t).

**{reminder:** if s(t) is the position function, v(t) = s '(t) and a(t) = s "(t).}
