1. In the manufacturing process, ball bearings must be made with radius of 0.5mm, with a maximum error in the radius of +/- 0.016 mm. Estimate the maximum error in the volume of the ball bearing.
Solution: The formula for the volumen of the sphere is _____.
If an error deltaR is made in measuring the radius of the sphere, the maximum error in the volume is deltaV = _____.
Rather than calculating deltaV, approximate deltaV with dV, where dV = _____.
Replacing r with ___ and dr = deltar with =/- _____ gives dV = +/- ______.
The maximum error in the volume is about _____ mm^3.
2. The demand function for a product is given by p = f(q) = 90 - sqrt(q)
where p is the price per unit in dollars for q units. Use the linear approximation to approximate the price when 2024 units are demanded.
Solution: We want to approximate f(2024). From
f(q) ~ L(q) = f(a) + f'(a)(q - a)
and the fact that f'(a) = _____.
we chose a = ______.
From f(2025) = ______ and f'(2025) = ______ we get f(2024) ~ _____.
Hence, the price per unit when 2024 units are demanded is approximately $_____.
The maximum error in the volume is determined.
