Assignment 1 1) The rate of growth of bacteria in a culture is found to be satisfying the equation

2) We have a cable that weighs 2 lbs/ft attached to a bucket filled with coal that weighs 800 lbs. The bucket is initially at the bottom of a 500 ft mine shaft. Answer each of the following about this. (a) Determine the amount of work required to lift the bucket to the midpoint of the shaft. (b) Determine the amount of work required to lift the bucket from the midpoint of the shaft to the top of the shaft. (c) Determine the amount of work required to lift the bucket all the way up the shaft.

= 200, find N when t=6.

= 0.5 where N is the number of bacteria and t is the time in days. If initially

3) (a) Verify the mean value theorem for integral and find all values of c in that interval. (i) (ii) () = , [1, ]
