(10 marks) Suppose the energy of a particle (in Joules) is given by E = f (x, y) = sin(πx) + cos(πy) where x and y are its coordinates measured in metres. Consider a particle at the point P = ( 1 , 1 ). 4 4 (a) Find the direction in which the particle would move to decrease its energy most rapidly. (b) Find the initial rate of energy increase (in Joules per metre), if the particle were to move from P directly towards the origin. (c) If the particle were to travel from P , along the curve x = 4y 2 with x decreasing at 10 metres per second, ﬁnd the initial rate of energy increase (in Joules per second).
