Calculus
Find any absolute max/min and local max/min for the function f(x)=x^3-4x+5 on the interval [0,5). Made sure to prove that these points are max/min values. This is what I did so far. f'(x)=3x^2-4=0 3x^2=4 x= 2/sqrt3 The -2/sqrt3 is outside of interval so can't use. x=2/...

The position in meters of a particle is given by f(t)= 14t-3t^2, where t is measured in seconds. a) Evaluate f'(2) and interpret the results. This is how I solved this. f'(t)=14-6t= 2(7-3t) f'(2)=2(7-3(2))= 2 This means the velocity of the particle is 2 m/s when t=...

Calculus
Bosnian, Thanks for your help. I just want to make sure I understand. The local min and max are the same f(2/sqrt3) = 1.92 Are there any absolute maximum or minimum? Thanks again.

Find any absolute maximum and minimum and local maximum and minimum for the function f(x)=x^3-4x+5 on the interval [0,5). Make sure to prove that these points are max/min values. THis is what I did. f'(x)=3x^2-4=0 x= +/- 2/sqrt3 -2/sqrt3 is outside of interval so just use ...

Calculus
Use Newton's Method to approximate the root of the function f(x)=e^x-5x when the intial point chosene is x1=1.5. Do two iterations. This is what I did, but not working. f'(x)=e^x-5 x2=1.5 - (e^1.5-(5(1.5))/e^1.5 -(5)) =1.5-(4.4817-7.5/4.4817-5)=1.5-5.8234= -4.3234 x3=-...

Calculus
let f(x)=x^3(e^-x) Answer using calculus, use graphing calculator only to check work. a) Find the local and global extrema of f. b) Find the intervals where f is increasing/decreasing. c) Find the inflection points of f. d) Find the intervals where f is concave up/down. e) Fin...
