Suppose a fish swimming a distance of L ft at a speed of v fit/sec relative to the water against a current flowing at the rate of u ft/sec (u<v) expends a total energy given by

E(v)= (aLv^3)/(v-u)
Where E is measured in foot-pounds and a is a constant.

a) Evaluate the limit of E(v) as v-->u+ and interpret your result
b) Evaluate the limit of E(v) as v-->infinity and interpret your result
