second derivative test ii If not the right one test endpoints d Answer the question posed in the problem Don t forget units Example A fence is built to enclose a rectangular area of 800 square feet The fence along three sides is made of material that costs 6 per foot The material for the fourth side costs 18 per foot Find the dimensions of the rectangle that will allow the most economical fence to be built You must use calculus HW 46 19 21 INTRODUCTION TO THE TANGENT LINE I A GEOMETRIC INTERPRETATION Recall from geometry that a tangent line to a circle is a line that passes through one and

h f 39x rate of change of f at x hlino if the limit exists The derivative of a function f 39 is a new function whose domain is a subset of the domain of f Alternate notations f 39x m f m y m dy The notation a reminds us that the derivative is a rate of change The derivative of a function at a point tells you the rate of change at which the value of the function is changing at that point Example If f 39 exists for each x in the open interval a b then f is differentiable over the interval a b But when does the derivative NOT exist 11 NoneXistence of the Derivative If the limit dne at x a then f is nondifferentiable at x a or f a dne So ifthe graph off 1 has a sharp corner at x a thenf a dne 2 has a vertical tangent line at xa and has no tangent line at xa thenf39a dne since slope is unde

derivative include the rate of growth for animal or plant populations or the rate of ow of blood through a blood vessel Example If we consider the ow of blood through a blood vessel we can take to shape of the blood vessel to be cylindrical with radius R and length l The velocity of the blood is greatest blood ows the fastest along the center of the vessel central axis and decrease closer to the walls of the vessel because of friction At the walls the velocity becomes 0 Let r the distance from the center aXis to the wall of the vessel The relationship between v and r is given by the law
