    Calculus Quiz Problems

    Determine the area of the region enclosed by the graphs of f(x) = x^2 + x +5, g(x) = 3x +13, and the vertical line x = 0 I got 26.67 but he gave me zero points for it so idk. Set up (but do not evaluate) an integral that will give the area of the surface generated when y= x^3/8 is revolved...

    Help with functions on intervals in TI Nspire CX CAS

    Hello everyone. I have the TI-nspire CX CAS and I need some help plugging in numbers. I was wondering how to solve the function "0=x(sin(x))-(cos(x)" on the interval [0,4]. I need to find the precise points, not a graphical analysis. I can't seem to find any button that allows me to specify an...

    Find the slope of the tangent line on f at x=1

    So I'm studying for my first calculus exam, and this problem has me stumped for hours now. I've used the formula of lim h-->0 f(x+h)-f(x) / h It becomes so complicated and confusing as I try to multiply by the conjugate to remove the radicals in the numerator, it just never simplifies to a...

    Vector addition cases

    I would like to know whether I am correct in my thinking below. You can add two vectors using basic arithmetic only when either two cases occur: (1) the vectors are parallel to each other (2) the vectors direction are opposite of each other (in which case, you could multiply one of the...

    Surface Area of a Regular Tetrahedron

    How to find the surface area of a regular tetrahedron using calculus? The surface area should be √3 a^2. I tried to do the same approach that MarkFL did for the volume but I could not figure out how to do it with the area!

    Regular Tetrahedron

    How to find the volume of a regular tetrahedron using calculus? V = ∫ dV = ∫∫∫ dx dy dz This is what I did first I was thinking to take a cross-sectional equilateral triangle and integrate it from 0 to h, but I could not figure out how to do that. Instead I integrated each variable as...

    Intermediate Value Theorem

    Let f: [0, +oo] of all real numbers be differentiable with f(0)=A>0 and f'(x)<= 0 for all x>0 (a) show that there exists some c of (0, +oo) such that f(c)=c (b) show that there is only one such c (Note: These facts are obviously intuitively, as you can see be drawing a graph showing the curve...

    Illumination Optimization Problem

    Optics tells us that for any light illuminating with strength s, and for any point located distance d away from the light source, the intensity of illumination at the point is s/d^2. Now let two light sources be placed one unit apart. The first one illuminates with strength a, the second with...

    Why is that we use the boundaries from -1 to 1 instead of 0 to 1?

    The given curve is rotated about the y-axis. Find the area of the resulting surface. $\sqrt[3]{x^2}+\sqrt[3]{y^2}=1 , 0\leq y \leq1 $ We set up the surface area integral: \int_{-1}^{1} 2\pi x ds I understand how to find the arc-length(ds) and set up the integral but why...
