Volume of a Solid with Cross Section
V=
Volume of a Solid with Cross Section
 V=ʃ_{a}^{b }A(x)dx
 (cross section is perp. to height of solid)

Euler's Method when y'=F(x,y)
x_{1}=
y_{1}=
_{}_{}Euler's Method when y'=F(x,y)
 x_{1}= x_{0}+h y_{1}= y_{0}+hF(x_{0},y_{0})
 h is step size
 (smaller step size, better approx.)

Disc Method about the line h
V=
Disc Method about the line h
 V= (pi) ʃ_{a}^{b}( f(x)  h )^{2 }dx,
 where  f(x)h =radius
 (if xaxis, h=0)

Washer Method between f(x) and g(x)
V=
Washer Method between f(x) and g(x)
 V=(pi) ʃ_{a}^{b }[ (f(x))^{2 } (g(x))^{2 }]dx
 Outer radius  smaller radius

What is the Squeeze Therom?
if g(x)< f(x) < h(x) and Lim_{x>a}[g(x)= h(x)]=L, then so does that same limit of f(x)

What is the Intermediate Value Therom?
If a function f is continuous on a closed interval [a,b] and k is a number with f(a) < k < f(b), there exists a number inside the interval where f(c)=k

What is...
d/dx (a^{u}) =
d/dx (a^{u}) = a^{u} ln(a) u'

What is...
d/dx log(u)=
d/dx log(u)= 1/(u lna) * u'

What is Rolle's Therom?
 Rolle's Therom: if f is continuous [a,b] and differentiable (a,b), and f(a)=f(b)=0
 then there is a number c that exists in (a,b) such that f'(c)=0
 *rel. mins and maxs

What is the Mean Value Therom?
 Mean Value Therom: if f is continuous [a,b] and differentiable (a,b) thn there exists a number c in (a,b) that f'(c)=(f(b)f(a))/(ba)
 *secant line slope passing through points a and b are equal to tangent slope of c

 3. Find feasable domain
 4. Find critical values (f' = 0) of the function on the feasable domain

 6. Answer in context of the problem

What is the Average Value of a Function? from (a,b)
Average Value of a Function: 1/(ba) ʃ_{a}^{b }f(x)dx

Area of an equilateral triangle
A=
A=(s^{2 }3^{1/2}) / 4

Position Function
Instantaneous Velocity
Acceleration
Instantaneous Speed
 Position Function = s(t)
 Instantaneous Velocity = s'(t) = v(t)
 Acceleration = s''(t) = v'(t) = a(t)
 Instantaneous Speed = v(t)

First Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
ʃ_{a}^{b }f(x)dx = F(b)  F(a)

Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
F(x)= ʃ_{a}^{b} f(t)= f(x) , F'(x)=f(x) at every point of [a,b]

Area between two curves f(x) and g(x)
 ʃ_{a}^{b} [f(x)g(x)]dx
 upper curve  lower curve

Distance Trveled Problems!!
Displacement from t_{1} to t_{2}
 Displacement from t_{1 }to t_{2 }= ʃ_{t1}^{t2} v(t)
 Total distance traveled is the same thing but the absolute value of v(t)

pseries
 is a series of the form, 1+1/2^{p}=1/3^{p}=1/4^{p}+...+1/n^{p}+...= sum( 1/n^{p}, n, 1, infinity)
 Series converges when p>1
 Series diverges when 0<p<1

harmonic series
special p series, where p=1, so the series diverges

geometric series
 sum(ar^{(n)},n,0,infinity).
 series converges when r<1
 sum of the series is a/(1r)

integral test
if a_{n}=f(n) where f is continuous, positive, decreasing funciton on [c,infinity)
