Description
Practice Problem for Midterm #1, Math 1502 1. The population of a country grows at a rate proportional to the current population. Numerical data show that the proportionality factor is 6% per year. Let P(t) be the population of this country at time t. (a) Write down the di▯erential equation for P(t). (b) Find a formula for P(t). (c) How many years does it take for the population of this country to double? Find the exact formula. 2. Solve the following initial value problems: 0 2 2 (a) 2ty + t y = t ; y(0) = 4 dy x2 (b) dx = y(1+x ); y(0) = ▯3 3. Find the following limits. Show your work/reasoning! t ▯1 (a) limt!1 t ▯1 ▯ 2=t ▯ (b) limt!1 t e ▯ 1 ex (c) limx!0 x ▯ ▯ 1 x (d) limx!1 cos x 3. Find the general solution to the following di▯erential equations: 00 0 (a) y ▯ 2y ▯ 3y = 0 (b) y + 8y + 16y = 0 (c) y ▯ 2y + 2y = 0 0 2 cos t (d) y + ty = t2 4. Determine if the integral converges and, if so, calculate the integral whenever possible. Show your work/reasoning!
