Calculus for the Phys./Life Sciences 1

Homework Assignment #2

Due Wednesday, September 18, START of Class

Homework should be turned in at the BEGINNING OF CLASS. All problem numbers refer to the Hughes-Hallett, Gleason, McCallum, et al. book, the required text for the course. You should write up solutions neatly to all problems, making sure to SHOW ALL YOUR WORK. A nonempty subset will be graded. You are strongly encouraged to work on these problems with other classmates, although the solutions you turn in should be YOUR OWN WORK.

At the top of your assignment, please list any students or faculty who you worked with on the assignment. If you received help at the Calculus Workshop please include "Calculus Workshop" in your list as well.

Section 1.3
Problems:   2, 4, 7, 9, 15, 16, 17, 20, 25, 26, 28*, 31, 32

Extra Credit: Problem #28 is extra credit. Your graph must be very detailed to recieve any credit.

Section 1.4
Problems:   1, 2, 9, 13, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27, 29, 32, 38, 45

Important: When the problem asks for a numerical answer (eg. problems 2, 9, 13, etc.) or requires a constant in a formula, give the exact answer first (in terms of logs and without decimals) then use your calculator to obtain a decimal approximation. For problem #38, the term half-life means the amount of time it takes for a substance to lose half its original value.
