1. (a) (i) Find a Taylor series expansion of the function

V=f(x,y)=ln(x 2 -4y)

about the values x=3, y=2. The series is to contain terms deduced from the first and

(ii) Bt using differentials (partial derivatives) estimate the value of V where the values

of x and y were estimated to be 4±0.01 and 2±0.02, respectively. (13 marks)

(b) Write down the relationships between Cartesian coordinates x and y and polar

coordinates r and . If stress T=f(x,y) is an arbitrary function in x and y find the

relationships between the partial derivatives of T with respect to x and y and those

with respect to r and . Also show that
