  1. Let R be the region bounded by the graphs of y x = sin(πx) and y = x3 - 4x, as shown in the figure above.
    (a) Find the area of R.
    (b) The horizontal line y = −2 splits the region R into two parts. Write, but do not evaluate, an integral expression for the area of the part of R that is below this horizontal line.
    (c) The region R is the base of a solid. For this solid, each cross section perpendicular to the x-axis is a square. Find the volume of this solid.
    (d) The region R models the surface of a small pond. At all points in R at a distance x from the y-axis, the depth of the water is given by h(x) = 3 - x . Find the volume of water in the pond.
  2. Concert tickets went on sale at noon (t = 0) and were sold out within 9 hours. The number of people waiting in line to purchase tickets at time t is modeled by a twice-differentiable function L for 0 ≤ t ≤ 9.
    Values of L(t) at various times t are shown in the table above.

  1. Let h be a function having derivatives of all orders for x > 0. Selected values of h and its first four derivatives are indicated in the table above. The function h and these four derivatives are increasing on the interval 1 ≤ x ≤ 3. (a) Write the first-degree Taylor polynomial for h about x = 2 and use it to approximate h(1.9) . Is this approximation greater than or less than h(1.9) ? Explain your reasoning.
  2. A particle moves along the x-axis so that its velocity at time t, for 0 ≤ t ≤ 6 is given by a differentiable function v whose graph is shown above. The velocity is 0 at t = 0, t = 3, and t = 5, and the graph has horizontal tangents at t = 1 and t = 4. The areas of the regions bounded by the t-axis and the graph of v on the intervals [0,3], [3,5] and [5.6] are 8, 3, and 2, respectively. At time t 0, the particle is at x = -2.
  3. The derivative of a function f is given by
  4. Consider the logistic differential equation
