Question 1.
Find differential dy for each of the following functions:

Solution:

Question 2.
Find df for f(x) = x2 + 3x and evaluate it for
(i) x = 2 and dx = 0.1
(ii) x = 3 and dx = 0.02
Solution:
(i) f(x) = x2 + 3x
df = (2x + 3)dx
= (2 × 2 + 3) × 0.1
= 7 × 0.1
= 0.7

(ii) f(x) = x² + 3x
df = (2x + 3)dx
= (2 × 3 + 3) × 0.02
= 9 × 0.02
= 0.18

Question 3.
Find ∆f and df for the function f for the indicated values of x, ∆x and compare
(i) f (x) = x3 – 2x2 ; x = 2, ∆x = dx = 0.5
(ii) f(x) = x2 + 2x + 3; x = -0.5, ∆x = dx = 0.1
Solution:
(i) f(x) = x³ – 2x²
df = (3x² – 4x) dx
x = 2, df = (12 – 8) × 0.5
= 4 × 0.5
= 2; f(2) = 8 – 8 = 0

Δf = f(x + Δx) – f(x)
= (2.5)³- 2(2.5)² – 0
= 15.625 – 12.5
= 3.125

(ii) f(x) = x² + 2x + 3
df = (2x + 2) × dx
= (2 × -0.5 + 2) × 0.1
= (-1 + 2) × 0.1
= 0.1
f(x) = x² + 2x + 3
f(-0.5) = 0.25 – 1 + 3
= 2.25
Δf = f(x + Δx) – f(x)
= (-0.4)² + 2 (-0.4) + 3 – 2.25
= (0.16 – 0.8 + 3) – 2.25
= (3.16 – 0.8) – 2.25
= 2.36 – 2.25
= 0.11
Δf = 0.11

Question 4.
Assuming log10 e = 0.4343, find an approximate value of log10 1003.
Solution:
To find log 1003
1003 = 1000 + 3 and
log 1000 = 3
Let y = log x

Here x = 1000 and dx = 3 = 3 log10e

Question 5.
The trunk of a tree has a diameter of 30 cm. During the following year, the circumference grew 6 cm.
(i) Approximately, how much did the tree’s diameter grow?
(ii) What is the percentage increase in the area of the tree’s cross-section?
Solution:
(i) Given r = 15 cm and rate of change of perimeter = 6 cm
To find the rate of change of diameter
Now perimeter = p = 2πr
So dp = 2πdr
Here dp = 6 cm (given)

Question 6.
An egg of a particular bird is very nearly spherical. If the radius to the inside of the shell is 5 mm and the radius to the outside of the shell is 5.3 mm, find the volume of the shell approximately.
Solution:

Question 7.
Assume that the cross-section of the artery of human is circular. A drug is given to a patient to dilate his arteries. If the radius of an artery is increased from 2 mm to 2.1 mm, how much is the cross-sectional area increased approximately?
Solution:
Area of circle = A = πr2.

Question 8.
In a newly developed city, it is estimated that the voting population (in thousands) will increase according to V (t) = 30 + 12t2 – t3, 0 ≤ t ≤ 8 where t is the time in years. Find the approximate change in voters for the time change from 4 to 4$$\frac{1}{6}$$ year.
Solution:

Question 9.
The relation between the number of words y a person learns in x hours is given by y = 52$$\sqrt{x}$$, 0 ≤ x ≤ 9. What is the approximate number of words learned when x changes from
(i) 1 to 1.1 hours?
(ii) 4 to 4.1 hours?
Solution:

Question 10.
A circular plate expands uniformly under the influence of heat. If it’s radius increases from 10.5 cm to 10.75 cm, then find an approximate change in the area and the approximate percentage change in the area.
Solution:
Here radius is changing from 10.5 cm to 10.75 cm
⇒ r = 10.5 cm and dr = 0.25 cm
Now area = A = πr2
⇒ dA = π (2r) dr

(i) So dA
(when r = 10.5 cm and dr = 0.25 cm)
= π (2 × 10.5) (0.25)
= 5.25 π

Question 11.
A coat of paint of thickness 0.2 cm is applied to the faces of a cube whose edge is 10 cm. Use the differentials to find approximately how many cubic centimeters of paint is used to paint this cube. Also, calculate the exact amount of paint used to paint this cube.
Solution:
Edge of the cube = 10 cm
Volume of the cube V = x³
dV = 3x²dx
= 3 × 10 × 10 × 0.2
= 60 cm²
Δx = f(x + Δx) – f(x)
= (10.2)³ – 10³
= 1061.208 – 1000
= 61.2 cm³
