You have a conical tank, vertex down, which is 12 feet across the top and 18 feet deep. If water flows in at a rate of 9 cubic feet per minute, find the exact rate of change when the water is 6 feet deep. You know the rate of dV/dt (inflow), and you can get the volume of a ...

Problems, once again. 1. Compute the average value of: f(x} = x/(x+3) over the interval [-a,a] 2. Find the area of the region bounded by the graph of: y = 2√(x^2 + 1) X axis Y axis Line x = 1 On the first, integrate, then divide the integral by 2a. On the second, ...

Calculate the area bounded by the x-axis and the function f(x)= -(x-a)(x-b), where a<b and a and b are constants. Please do it out in steps so I can understand it, and try to simplify the final answer and leave it in factored form. Frankly, I would multiply out the ...

Is f(x)=|x+2| integrable? Please give a reason behind your answer. Yes, it is piecewise integrable. http://www.mathwords.com/p/piecewise_continuous_function.htm Could you explain that a bit more? I understand that is is continuous, but how does that relate to integration?

There is a ditch that is 18 feet deep at its deepest point. A rock is dropped from the rim above the deepest point. a. Write the height of the rock as a function of t in seconds. b. How long will it take for the rock to hit the ditch floor. We want a position function, or y(t...

**Calculus**

A rectangle is bounded by the x-axis and the semicircle y=ã(25-x^2). Question is, what length and width should the rectangle have so that its area is a maximum, and what is the maxuimum area? Area= length*width = 2x*y= 2x*sqrt(25-x^2) Now, take that, differentiate...

A rectangle is bounded by the x-axis and the semicircle y= ã(25-x^2). What length and width should the rectangle have so that the area is maximum? Place the semi-circle so it's center coincides with the origin. If you go a distance x to the right the max ...

**Calculus...again**

I'm gonna have abunch of questions, cause I have a test. >_< If you planened to fence a rectangular pasture that must contain 4000 sq meters, what dimensions would require the least amount of fencing? Perimeter= 2l + 2w area= lw=4000 or l=4000/w P= 2(4000/w + w) Now ...

**Calculus**

Find two numbers such that the sum of the first plus three times the second is 600 and their product is a maximum. x + 3y=600 xy is a max. This is the problem statement. let U be the function equal to xy. U=xy = y(600-3y) Now, maximize U (take derivative, set to zero), and ...
