APPM 1350 Exam #3 Summer 2008

1. (30 points) Integrate

(a)

∫ sec2(t)− 1

5 √ t3 + π dt (b)

∫ 10t √ 2t+ 5 dt (c)

∫ 3 −3

r √ r2 + 1 dr

(e) d

dx

∫ x2 5

ln(z)√ z4 + 9

dz (f)

∫ −1 −2

3x4 − 4x2

x2 dx

2. (15 points) You are at the bottom of a hole and throw a shovel full of dirt up with an initial velocity of 32 ft

sec . The dirt must rise 17 feet above the release point to clear the

edge of the hole. Does the pile of dirt have enough of an initial velocity to escape from the hole? If so, by how much? If not, how short was it? Recall that g = 32 ft

sec2 .

3. (15 points) The outside temperature in degrees Fahrenheit at CU on February 1, 2007 can be approximated by the function

T (t) = −10 sin ( πt

12

) +15 Where T is the temperature and t is the time from midnight

(t = 0 corresponds to midnight, t = 13 would correspond to 1pm, etc). What was the average outside temperature at CU on February 1 (from t = 0 to t = 24)? Round your answer to the nearest degree if applicable.

4. (20 points) Linearization and Newton’s Method!

(a) Approximate √ 12 by rewriting it as f(x) =

√ x and finding TWO equations

for the local linear approximation of f(x) = √ x by selecting two different points

near x = 12. Let L1(x) represent the linearization about the smaller x value and L2(x) represent the linearization about the larger x value.

(b) Find L1(12) and L2(12).

(c) Now use Newton’s Method with an initial guess of x0 = 4 to approximate √ 12

by letting g(x) = x2 − 12 and solving for the positive root of g(x) = 0. Compute both x1 and x2. NOTE: There is some algebra involved, but I have faith that you can do it. ¨̂

5. (20 points) A computer gives a digital readout of fuel consumption for a small aircraft in gallons

min . During a 30 minute trip, the following data was collected every 5 minutes:

Time (min) 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 gal min

2 3 1 3 2 3 1

(a) Make a sketch of the data and clearly label the x and y axis. Note: Even though the data is not continuous, both time and fuel consumption are. Therefore we can “connect the dots” using straight lines to form a continuous graph for the purposes of this problem. Just remember that anything that is not a data point is an estimate.

(b) Adding to your sketch from part a, show what a left endpoint approximation method with six rectangles would look like.

(c) Using a left endpoint approximation method with six rectangles, estimate the total consumption of gas during the trip.

(d) Have you found an over or under-estimate of the total gas consumption? Justify your answer.

97% of all statistics are made up.
