ecis always positive, so we must have

Thus 1 = ec and we get as our final answer

y(x) = 1 + x

3. Find a solution to the initial value problem

dx = ypy2 − 1 cos(x)

dy

y(0) = 1

Solution: First, we can observe that one solution to this problem is given by y(x) = 1. We can find another solution by separating variables.

Substituting in the initial condition y(0) = 1 we find that

1 = y(0) = sec(C)

So we may take, for example, C = 0. Our final solution is then either of y(x) = 1 or y(x) = sec(sin(x)).

dy

dx − sec(x)y = tan(x) + sec(x)

The integrating factor is m(x) = eR− sec(x)dx = e− ln | sec(x)+tan(x)|. Recalling that we as sumed −π2 < x < π2, this is 1

Worksheet 3/3/16Solutions

Please inform your TA if you find any errors in the solutions.

1. A 100 litre tank is filled with water infested with dangerous bacteria. Clean water is pumped in and infected water is pumped out at a rate of 10 litres per minute, but the bacteria population reproduces at a rate of two percent per minute. Assume that the bacteria are always perfectly uniformly mixed in the water. If the tank begins with a bacteria concentration of one percent at what time will the bacteria population be half of its present value?

Solution: Define P(t) to be the population of bacteria in litres. The following equations describe the change in bacteria population.

increase due to reprod. = (rate of bacteria reprod.) × (current population) decrease due to flow out = (concentration of bacteria) × (rate water flows out at) change in bacteria population = increase due to reprod. − decrease due to flow out

Now, we need to translate what we have written above into the language of differential equations.

dP

dt = (.02)P(t) −

P(0) = (.01)(100)

which we can rewrite as

dP

P(t) 100

(10)

dt = −.08P(t)

P(0) = 1

This differential equation is separable and the solution is P(t) = e−.08t. To find the time when the concentration is halved, we would like to find the time when P(t) = 12. 1

2= e−.08t

− ln(2) = −.08t

t =ln(2)

.08

2. A tank begins with 100 litres of salt water in it. Fresh water is pumped in at a rate of twenty litres per minute and the mixed water is pumped out at a rate of ten litres per minute. If the tank initially has ten kilograms of salt in it, find an equation for the amount of salt left in the tank in kilograms as a function of time. Note that the volume of the water in the tank is changing.

Solution: If S(t) is the amount of salt in the tank in kilograms, the amount of salt left in the tank changes according to

change in salt amount = −proportion of salt in the water × water removed

Recall that the proportion of salt in the water is given by S(t)

V (t), so we will need to know

what V (t) is. Since we have a net increase of 10 litres per minute and we start at 100 litres, we know that V (t) = 100 + 10t. Rewriting the previous line, we find that

dS

dt = −S(t)

100 + 10t(10)

= −S(t)

10 + t

With the initial condition that S(0) = 10. This equation is separable: dS

S= −dt

10 + t

(If we wanted the general condition we would be concerned as well with the possibility S = 0, but that would not satisfy S(0) = 10). Integrating both sides gives

ln|S| = −ln|10 + t| + C

Negative salt makes no sense, and we are only interested in positive values of t, so we can remove the absolute values. Setting D = eC we get S = D(10 + t)−1, and by the initial condition D = 100.

Thus

S =100 10 + t

3. Suppose that p is a function of t, satisfying

tp0 = a(p2 + t2)

p(1) = 2

where a is some small unknown constant. Using Euler’s method with step size 2, approx imate p(5). Your answer will depend on a.

Solution:

We know p(1) = 2. Plugging into the equation,

1 ∗ p0(1) = a(22 + 12)

so p0(1) = 5a. Thus

p(3) ≈ 2 ∗ p0(1) + p(1) = 2 ∗ 5a + 2 = 10a + 2

We know p(3) ≈ 10a + 2. Plugging into the equation,

3 ∗ p0(3) ≈ a((10a + 2)2 + 9

So p0(3) ≈a3(10a + 2)2 + 3. Thus

p(5) ≈ 2 ∗ p0(3) + p(3) = 2 ∗ a3(10a + 2)2 + 3 + 10a + 2

4. Solve the following initial value problem exactly, then use Euler’s method with step size ∆x = .1 to estimate y(.3).

dy

dx = −2xy

y(0) = 1

Solution: This differential equation is separable and the solution is y(x) = e−x2.

To use Euler’s method with step size .1, we will iteratively compute estimates to y(.1), y(.2) and y(.3).

dx (0)∆x, so we need to compute dy

First, we need an estimate for y(.1) ≈ y(0) + dy

dy

dx(0) = −2(0)y(0) = 0

so we estimate that

y(.1) ≈ y(0) + dydx(0)(.1)

= 1 + (0)(.5) = 1

Now we repeat the procedure above to find an approximation for y(.2) y(.2) ≈ y(.1) + dydx(.1)∆x

To compute dy

dx (.1), we recall that we have the differential equation dy

dx (0).

dx = −2xy, sody

dx (.1) =

−2(.1)y(.5). We have estimated that y(.1) = 1, so we use that in our computation, and get dy

dx (.5) ≈ −2(.1)(1) = −.2. This gives us the approximation

y(.2) ≈ y(.1) + dydx(.1)∆x

≈ 1 + (−.2)(.1) = .98

Finally, we compute an approximation to y(.3) ≈ y(.2) + dy

dx (.2)∆x. We first compute

dy

dx(.2) = −2(.2)y(.2)

≈ −2(.2)(.98)

= −.392

Then our approximation to y(.3) is

y(.3) ≈ y(.2) + dydx(.2)∆x

≈ .98 + (−.392)(.1)

= .9408

As a comment, the true value of e−(.3)2is about .914.

5. A 100 litre vat of water begins with an algae concentration of 1, 000 organisms per litre. Suppose that the algae naturally reproduce at a rate of five percent per minute and die at a rate of four percent per minute. If the vat is being drained at a rate of one litre per minute, what will the algae concentration be ten minutes from now? You should assume that the algae are uniformly distributed in the vat. Remember to define your variables with units.

Solution: We will model the total population of algae in the vat P(t) and then notice that the concentration at time t is given by P(t)

V (t), where V (t) is the volume of water in the

vat. The differential equation for the algae population is

dP

dt = (.05)P(t) − (.04)P(t) −P(t)

V (t)

P(0) = 1, 000(100) = 100, 000

Since V (t) = 100 − t, this differential equation becomes

dP

dt =

.01 −1 100 − t

P(t)

P(0) = 100, 000

This equation is separable. Recalling that for t < 100 we have ln(100 − t) = ln |100 − t|, it follows that

dP

P=

.01 −1 100 − t

dt

ln |P| = .01t + ln |100 − t| + C

P(t) = Ae.01t+ln(100−t)

= A(100 − t)e.01t

The initial condition P(0) = 100, 000 gives us

100, 000 = 100A

so A = 1000 and P(t) = 1000(100 − t)e.01t. The concentration in organisms per litre ten minutes from now will be

V (10) =1000(100 − 10)e(.01)(10)

P(10)

100 − 10= 1000e.1

6. Find an exact solution to the following initial value problem, then use Euler’s method with step size ∆x = .1 to estimate y(.2)

dy

dx = 2xy + x

y(0) = 0

Solution: We begin by putting the differential equation into standard form

dy

dx − 2xy = x

The integrating factor for this problem is m(x) = eR−2xdx = e−x2. Multiplication turns this into

e−x2 dydx − 2xe−x2y | {z } dx e−x2y

d

= xe−x2 Z

e−x2y =

xe−x2dx

=−12e−x2+ C

y(x) = −12+ Cex2

Substituting in the initial condition y(0) = 0 gives that y(x) = 12ex2−12. To approximate y(.2) we first need an approximation for y(.1).

y(.1) ≈ y(0) + dydx(0)∆x

where dy

dx (0) = 2(0)y(0) + 0 = 0. So we have dy

dx (0) ≈ y(0) + 0(.1) = 0. We now have

y(.2) ≈ y(.1) + dydx(.1)∆x

where dy

dx (.1) = 2(.1)y(.1) + .1 = 2(.1)(0) + .1 = .1. Then, we have

y(.2) ≈ y(.1) + dydx(.1)∆x

≈ 0 + .1(.1)

= .01

Worksheet 3/10/16Solutions

Please inform your TA if you find any errors in the solutions.

1. Compute the second order Taylor polynomial of sin(x2) around 0 and use this to approx imate sin( 14).

Solution: We need to compute two derivatives of f(x) = sin(x2).

f(x) = sin(x2)

f0(x) = cos(x2)(2x)

f(2)(x) = 2 cos(x2) − 4x2sin(x2)

Now we evaluate the function and its derivatives at zero.

f(0) = sin(0) = 0

f0(0) = cos(0)(0) = 0

f(2)(0) = 2 cos(0) − 4(0) sin(0) = 2

Therefore the degree two Taylor polynomial of sin(x2) is 22!x2 = x2.

Since sin 14 = sin 12 2 , our approximation is 12 2 =14.

2. Find the second order Taylor polynomial around 0 for f(x) = R x0e−t2dt and use this to estimate f(.1).

Solution:

f(x) =

Z x 0

e−t2dt

f0(x) = e−x2

f(2)(x) = −2xe−x2

so that

f(0) =

Z 0 0

e−t2dt = 0

f0(0) = e−02= 1

f(2)(0) = −2(0)e−02= 0

so that the degree 2 Taylor polynomial for f(x) is x. Our estimate for f(.1) is therefore .1.

3. Find the second and fourth order Taylor expansions around 1 for the function f(x) = x3 + 5x + 1.

Solution: We can first observe that since this function is a third order polynomial, the fourth order Taylor expansion of f(x) is f(x). To find the second order Taylor expansion, we need to differentiate:

f(x) = x3 + 5x + 1

f0(x) = 3x2 + 5

f(2)(x) = 6x

Now we evaluate at zero.

f(1) = 7

f0(1) = 8

f(2)(1) = 6

So the second order Taylor polynomial around 1 is 7 + 8(x − 1) + 62(x − 1)2 = 7 + 8(x − 1) + 3(x − 1)2.

4. Find the second order Taylor polynomial of cos(x) around 0 then integrate this polynomial. Additionally, find the third order Taylor polynomial of sin(x) around 0 . Recall that Rcos(x)dx = sin(x) + C and compare your answer to the previously computed Taylor polynomial for the integral of cos(x).

Solution: We begin by calling f(x) = cos(x) and g(x) = sin(x). We need to compute two derivatives of f and three derivatives of g.

f(x) = cos(x)

f0(x) = − sin(x)

f(2)(x) = − cos(x)

g(x) = sin(x)

g0(x) = cos(x)

g(2)(x) = − sin(x)

g(3)(x) = − cos(x)

so that

f(0) = 1

f0(0) = 0

f(2)(0) = −1

g(0) = 0

g0(0) = 1

g(2)(0) = 0

g(3)(0) = −1

The degree two Taylor polynomial of cos(x) around 0 is then 1 − x2 and the integral of this is C + x −x33. Similarly, we find that the degree three Taylor polynomial of sin(x) is x−x33. For C = 0, these agree–for nice functions, we can exchange the operation of taking Taylor polynomials and integration.

5. Find the first order Taylor polynomial for the function f(x) = R sin(x)

to find an approximation for f(12). Solution:

f(x) =

Z sin(x) 0

0e−t3dt and use this

e−t3dt

f0(x) = e− sin3(x)cos(x)

so that

f(0) =

Z sin(0) 0

e−t3dt =

Z 0 0

e−t3dt = 0

f0(0) = e− sin3(0) cos(0) = 1

so the first order Taylor polynomial for f(x) is given by x and our approximation for f(12) is 12.

6. Compute the degree two Taylor polynomial of the function f(x) = etan(x) around 0. Use this to estimate etan(.1).

Solution:

f(x) = etan(x)

f0(x) = sec2(x)etan(x)

f(2)(x) = 2 sec2(x) tan(x)etan(x) + sec4(x)etan(x)

We evaluate these at zero.

f(0) = etan(0) = 1

f0(0) = sec2(0)etan(0) = 1

f(2)(0) = 2 sec2(0) tan(0)etan(0) + sec4(0)etan(0) = 1

This gives the Taylor polynomial 1 + 11!x +12!x2 = 1 + x +12x2. We can then approximate etan(.1) ≈ 1 + .1 + 12(.1)2 = 1.105.

4! (13)4

but this is actually not at all helpful. The whole point of this problem was, after all, to estimate e13 ! We still know that e ≤ 3 < 8, so that e13 < 813 = 2. A final answer is then that

e13 − (1 + 13+1322! +1

33(3!)) <24!(13)4 =1972≈ .00102

2. Find a bound on |Rn cos(x)|x=1| and use this information to find a decimal approximation of cos(1) with an error of at most .1.

Solution: Recall that cos(x) − Tn cos(x) = Rn cos(x) by definition, so if |Rn cos(x)x=1| is less than 110 , then cos(1) is within two decimal digits of Tn cos(x)|x=1. If f(x) = cos(x) then fn+1(x) is ± cos(x) or ± sin(x). In any case, we have |fn+1(x)| ≤ 1. It follows then that

|Rn cos(x)|x=1| ≤ 1(1)n+1

(n + 1)! =1

(n + 1)!

(n+1)! ≤110 , then |Rn cos(x)|x=1| ≤ 110 . This is true, for

so if n is sufficiently large that 1

example, for n = 3, since (3+ 1)! = 24. Our approximation is then T3 cos(x)|x=1 = 1−12 = .5.

3. Find a bound for R0nsin(3x) and use this to show that T0nsin(3x) → sin(3x) for all x as n → ∞.

Solution: We begin by recalling the Lagrange form of the Taylor remainder term. If f(x) = sin(3x) then

R0nsin(x) = f(n+1)(ξ)

(n + 1)! xn+1

Notice that f(n+1)(x) is one of 3n+1 sin(3x), 3n+1 cos(3x), −3n+1 sin(3x), or −3n+1 cos(3x). In any of these cases, we know that |f(n+1)(x)| ≤ 3n+1 for all x. So in particular, we have the bound

|R0nsin(3x)| = |f(n+1)(ξ)

(n + 1)! xn+1|

≤3n

(n + 1)!|x|n+1

=|3x|n+1

(n + 1)!

Since for any x, limn→∞1

(n+1)! |3x|n+1 = 0, this shows that for any x, R0nsin(3x) → 0,

which implies that T0nsin(3x) = sin(3x) − R0nsin(3x) → sin(3x).

4. Find a bound on R0ne2x and use this to show that for every x, T0ne2x → e2x as n → ∞. Solution: We begin by recalling the Lagrange form of the Taylor remainder term. If f(x) = e2xthen

R0ne2x =f(n+1)(ξ)

(n + 1)! xn+1

If we recall that f(n)(x) = 2ne2x we can see that |f(n+1)(ξ)| ≤ 2n+1e2|x|for any ξ between 0 and x. Then |R0ne2x| ≤ 2n+1e2|x|

(n+1)! |x|n+1 =e2|x|

(n+1)! |2x|n+1. Notice that e2|x|is a number

that does not depend on n, so it suffices to observe that limn→∞|2x|n+1

(n+1)! = 0 for all real

numbers x. Therefore limn→∞ R0ne2x = 0 and so limn→∞ T0ne2x = e2x.

A second way of thinking about this problem is to notice that asking whether sin(x) − P(x) = o(x4) where P(x) polynomial of degree at most four is the same as asking whether P(x) is the degree four Taylor polynomial of sin(x). We can compute that for f(x) = sin(x) we have

f(x) = sin(x) f(0) = 0

f0(x) = cos(x) f0(0) = 1

f(2)(x) = − sin(x) f(2)(0) = 0

f(3)(x) = − cos(x) f(3)(0) = −1

f(4)(x) = sin(x) f(4)(0) = 0

Therefore

T04sin(x) = 0 + 11!x +02!x2 +−13! x3 +04!x4

We can recover the degree nine Taylor polynomial by observing that

X∞ n=0

n!(x3)n =X∞

n=0

n!x3n = 1 + x3 +x62+x96+ o(x9) 1

from which it follows that T09ex3= 1 + x3 +x62 +x96.

noticing that the first two terms in this sum are zero, we can rewrite this as P∞n=2 1n! − 1 xn+1. 7. Find the Taylor series around 0 for arctan(x), T0∞arctan(x).

Now we need to solve for C, which we can do by observing that arctan(0) = 0, so C = 0 and arctan(x) = P∞n=0(−1)n

2n+1 x2n+1.
