Find the x-coordinates of any relative extrema and inflection point(s) for the function f(x) = 3x(1/3) + 6x(4/3). You must justify your answer using an analysis of f '(x) and f "(x). My start to a solution: x-values: (-1/8) and (-1/4) I got -1/8 from f'(x)- ...

For the function below, determine the intervals of concavity: f(x)=xlnx I tried doing it but the second derivative would always be f''(x)=1/x, so it would be concave up at x>0 and concave down at x<0, which is wrong. Also, for the function below, determine the ...

qsub1:-2.8uC qsub2: 6.6uC qsub2 sits 7.9 cm away from qsub2, and in a previous question moved up the y axis 2.7cm. The question that I am having difficulty with has added qsub3 in the middle of of qsub1 and qsub2, changing the magnitude of Fsub2net= 7.954. What is the sign and...

I worked some on this earlier, and botched it a bit, so here goes again. A water tank is made by rotating f(x)=2^x-1 between [0,2] about the y-axis. The water tank is initially full, when a hole is opened at the bottom tip so that the water drains at a rate of 4 unit^3/second...

**Calculus**

The side of a square is measured to be 10 ft with a possible error of ±0.1 ft. Use differentials to estimate the error in the calculated area. Include units in your answer.
