Please hand in your home work before class, have it neatly written (the grader

will not decipher your notes but will give you zero points), stapled, with your name

and student ID on top.

Problem 1. Calculate the impact velocity if you jump down from a 7 foot wall

(ignore air drag). How long does it take to reach the ground?

Problem 2. In a zero-gravity environment with an atmosphere identical to Earths

(e.g. in the ISS) you horizontally shoot an arrow ow mass 375 grams from a bow

with initial speed 85 m/sec. Use the model that the air resistance is proportional

to the square of the velocity of the arrow with drag coefficient = 1. Answer the

following questions:

(i) How far does the arrow fly in the first 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds?

(ii) What are the velocities of the arrow after 5, 10, 20, 30 seconds?

(iii) Will the arrow ever come to a standstill and hover in mid air or fly on

forever? How far does the arrow fly without any obstacles?

(iv) Assuming that an arrow of speed 10m/s does not harm anymore, how

distant should you place your friend and shoot at her w/o harming her?

Problem 3. How high does a vertically upwards thrown stone with initial push

of 5 m/sec fly? (Assume the stone is launched from the ground and ignore air

resistance).

Problem 4. The population of the US was 8.6 Million in 1820 and 40 Million in

1897.

(i) Write down the differential equation for population growth according to

the following model: the rate of change of the population at any given

time is proportional to the population present at that time.

(ii) Calculate the number of people in the US according to your model in the

year 2003. How well does this growth model work: the actual population

of the US in 2003 was 291 Million.

(iii) How long does it take for the population in the US to double according to

your growth model?

by

dP

= P 500

dt

where P (t) denotes the rabbit population at time t (measured in months), and 500

is the amount of rabbits eaten by preying animals etc per month.

(i) For which initial rabbit population P0 does the rabbit population stay

constant over time?

(ii) For which initial rabbit populations do the rabbits die out?

(iii) Can it also happen that the rabbits just keep growing despite the fact that

some are eaten all the time? What initial population is needed for that to

happen?

Problem 6 (Bonus Problem). In class we asked ourselves whether the ODE y 0 = ky

has any other solutions than y(t) = cekt , c R a constant. How would one go about

this? Well, let g(t) be that putative (perhaps different from cekt ) solution of y 0 = ky.

Then we would have to convince ourselves that g(t) = cekt for some constant c R.

Here is a hint how you could achieve this: consider (you may justifiably ask why,

but this is where ingenuity/creativity/trial and error/playing with the problem etc

comes in) the function

g(t)

ekt

and try to show that this function is constant, i.e. independent of t. Recall a

criterion from calculus how the derivative can be used to show that a function is

constant and keep in mind that by assumption (which is important!) the function

g(t) is a solution of y 0 = ky.....
