• Express this relationship as a differential equation. Does it matter whether you use the centigrade or the Kelvin temperature scale? Why or why not?
• A cross-country skier takes a pot of boiling tea (100 degrees C) outside from the lodge. Five minutes after she leaves the lodge, the tea has cooled to 50 degrees C. Ten minutes after her departure from the lodge, the tea has cooled to 20 degrees C. How cold is it outside?

An object of mass m is thrown upward with initial velocity v0; the gravitational acceleration is g (directed downward), and there is a retarding force (due to air resistance) which is proportional to the speed. In terms of the constants in the problem (the mass, the gravitational acceleration, the initial velocity, and the constant of proportionality describing the air resistance), determine the ascent time (the time until the object reaches its highest point and begins its descent).

• read section 9.3, beginning with the Ratio Test (p. 542) to the end of the section, section 9.5 through the Radius of Convergence topic (skim the rest), sections 9.7 and 9.8. Note: this appears to be a longer reading assignment than it actually is, since the topics we wish to cover are scattered about in the book. To help you focus on the important points, note that we are mainly concerned with the application of the Ratio Test to determining the radius of convergence of a power series, and with the approximation of functions by Taylor polynomials. We will combine these two ideas in the next reading assignment.

For Wed, Oct 20

there will be no homework to be turned in.

• turn in 10.3 - 23,25 and 10.4 - 2,4,5,14, and the following problem on determinants:

Note the set of row vectors in the form

form a n-dimensional vector space when addition is given by addition of the components and cv means multiplying each component by c. It is also useful to let

where the 1 is in the ith component, and note

Similarly, the vector space of n x n matrixes is given by all vectors in the form

The determinant, det, can be viewed as a function on matrixes satisfying the following four properties

1.

2.

3.

4.

If you are confused by the notation describing property one, it is saying if you interchange neighboring rows in the matrix then the determinant's value changes sign. Note that by property 1, properties 2 and 3 hold for any row. It is a fact that the determinannt exist for any n and is uniquely determined by these four properties. In the book you are given the formulas for the 2 x 2 and 3 x 3 determinats, via

and

Exercises:

1.
Check that the above formula for the 2 x 2 determinant satisfies properties 1-4.
2.
Check that the above formula for the 3 x 3 determinant satisfies properties 1-4. (Hint: you may want to look at exercise 10.3 - 18 which is immediately true due to the volume interpretation of the scalar triple product).

• Study for exam.

for Wed, Nov 10 Study for the exam. Do the practice exam, you will not have to turn this in.

Here a few corrections.

1.
Number 4: the second plane should be

A2 x + B2 y + C2 z + D2 =0,

not

A1 x + B1 y + C1 z + D1 =0.

2.
Number 8: the point D should be D = (1,-1), not (-1,1).

3.
Number 6: first note that by the set of cubic polynomials it is meant all polynomilas in the form a3 x3 + a2 x2 + a1 x + a0 where the ai are real numbers. ( i.e. we are allowing that any of the ai are zero. So for example, for the purposes of this problem a quadradic polynomial is a degenerate example of a cubic polynomia.) Secondly, to do the the problem you are required to chose a range of T there are several possible choices. You may fail to be able to do part (c) if you don't make a finite dimensional choice, so this you should do.

Note: You are required to do problems 2,3,6,8 from the linear transformation point of view to receive full credit. In other words a complete solution will include how to view the function being examined as a composition of mappings, differentiating these mappings, and multiplying out the corresponding derivative matrices in order to find the needed derivative. By two ways you should use the matirx methed as well as constructing the needed function via compostion and differnetiating it.)
