You must show all work to receive
credit!
Problems that ask for “justification”
should be answered in complete English sentences
1. For the differential equation with initial condition y(0) =1:
a.

pts
Use Euler’s Method with
step size ½ to approximate y(1.5). Show all steps:
X 
Y 
Y’=y+2x 
Δx 
Δy 
0 
1 
1+2(0)=1 
½ 
1* ½ = ½ 
½ 
1– ½ = ½ 
½ +2( ½ ) = ½ 
½ 
½ * ½ = ¼

½ + ¼ = ¾ 
¾ +2(1)= 5/4 
½ 
½ * 5/4 = 5/8 
3/2 
¾ +5/8 =11/8 



b.

pts
Repeat part (a), but this time use 10
steps of size 0.15 to get an improved approximation.
You do not need to show any work – simply use your calculator program and copy the final answer.

If , then , and –y+2x =
So this satisfies the differential equation.
For the initial condition, y(0) = 3e^{0}+2(0)2=1

Find the general solution to the differential equation

pts each
A vat initially contains 300 gallons of pure water. Sugar water containing 5 tablespoons of sugar
per gallon enters the tank at a rate of 6 gallons per minute. The vat is kept well mixed, and solution
drains from the vat at the same rate of 6 gallons per minute. Let S(t) denote the
number of tablespoons of sugar after t minutes.
a. Set up – but do not solve  a differential equation which models the value of S(t) in this mixing problem.
b. Determine, with justification, the equilibrium solution for this problem.
(Note: the justification may be based on the wording of the problem itself or on your differential equation)
301/50 S = 0 when S=1500. So the equilibrium
value is when there are 1500 T of sugar in the vat.
At this level, the concentration is 1500/300
= 5T/gal, so the process described would not change the amount of sugar in the
tank.
4 A ball is dropped from a roof 12 feet high. Each time it hits the ground, it bounces back to 2/3 of its previous peak height.
a.
3
pts
Let a_{0}
represent the initial height of the ball, and a_{n}
the peak height after n
bounces (so a_{0} =12 feet, a_{1} =8 feet, and so on). What type of sequence is ?
Geometric
b. Find an explicit formula for
3
pts
c. Find the total distance this ball travels before coming to rest.
8
pts
(Hint: after the initial drop, the bounces up
from the floor to the next peak height each time before falling back down)
Falling
down:
Back
up: either reason that it is exactly the
same, except for the initial 12 foot drop, so 3612=24 feet, or
Either way, the total is 36+24=60 feet.

b. Determine with justification whether this sequence converges or diverges.
7.
6
pts each
Determine, with
justification, whether each of the following series converges or diverges.
Diverges by the divergence test – the sequence does not converge to 0.
For part c: determine whether this series is converges conditionally, converges absolutely, or diverges.
This converges
absolutely. It can be shown to converge
by the alternating series test, but then you’d still need to check if the
convergence was conditional or absolute.
I’ll instead simply show that it is absolutely convergent, since we know
that that implies convergences. converges, which can be shown by the integral test, or by
the result shown in class for pseries with p=4>1.
The graph of the polar equation is heart shaped (technically, it is called a cardioid).
8.
8
pts
Solve for the derivative
of this cardioid.
9. Set up (but do not evaluate) an integral that when evaluated will give you the area inside this cardioid
8
pts
Extra Credit: (5 points – answer either one of the two following)
a. Solve the differential equation from #4 and determine how long it will take until the sugar has a concentration of 4 tablespoons per gallon
b. Evaluate the integral from #9 to determine the exact amount of area inside the cardioid.
a.
Initially S=0, so we solve for C=1500, ie
When the concentration reaches the 4T/gal, there are 1200 T of sugar in the vat, so
b.
