1 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 01 CHAPTER 3 APPLICATION OF DIFFERENTIATION 3.1 MAXIMUM, MINIMUM AND INFLECTION POINT & SKETCHING THE GRAPH Introduction to Applications of Differentiation In Isaac Newton's day, one of the biggest problems was poor navigation at sea. Before calculus was developed, the stars were vital for navigation. Shipwrecks occured because the ship was not where the captain thought it should be. There was not a good enough understanding of how the Earth, stars and planets moved with respect to each other. Calculus (differentiation and integration) was developed to improve this understanding. Differentiation and integration can help us solve many types of real-world problems. We use the derivative to determine the maximum and minimum values of particular functions (e.g. cost, strength, amount of material used in a building, profit, loss, etc.). Derivatives are met in many engineering and science problems, especially when modelling the behaviour of moving objects. Our discussion begins with some general applications which we can then apply to specific problems. NOTES: a. There are now many tools for sketching functions (Mathcad, LiveMath, Scientific Notebook, graphics calculators, etc). It is important in this section to learn the basic shapes of each curve that you meet. An understanding of the nature of each function is important for your future learning. Most mathematical modelling starts with a sketch. b. You need to be able to sketch the curve, showing important features. Avoid drawing x-y boxes and just joining the dots. c. We will be using calculus to help find important points on the curve. 57

2 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 01 3 types of turning points: a. Maximum point Use d y dx <0 sign: ve b. Minimum point Use d y dx >0 sign: +ve c. Inflection point Use d y dx = 0 58

3 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 01 The kinds of things we will be searching for in this section are: x-intercepts Use y = 0 NOTE: In many cases, finding x-intercepts is not so easy. If so, delete this step. y-intercepts Use x = 0 Guide to solve the problem: dy a. Determine stationary point, 0 dx Find the value of x. b. Find the value of y, when x? c. Determine the nature of stationary point, d y? dx 59

4 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 01 Example 1: Find the stationary point of the curve y x x 6 and sketch the graph. Solution: Determine stationary point, dy dx = dy dx 0 Find the value of x, Find the value of y, when 1 x y x x 6 60

15 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS RECTILINEAR MOTION ONE OF THE most important applications of calculus is to motion in a straight line, which is called rectilinear motion. In this matter, we must assume that the object is moving along a coordinate line. The object that moves along a straight line with position s = f(t), ds has corresponding velocity v, and its acceleration dt dv d s a dt dt. If t is measured in seconds and s in meters, then the units of velocity are meters per second, which we abbreviate as m/sec. The units of acceleration are then meters per second per second, which we abbreviate as m/sec². s=0 -The particle at the beginning - The particle returns back to O again v=0 -the particle is instantaneously at rest -maximum displacement a=0 -constant velocity -the particle is begin t=0 -initial velocity -initial acceleration 71

16 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS 01 Example 1: An object P moving on a straight line has position interval time of t seconds. Find s t t 3 8 in meter and the a. The velocity of P at the time t. b. The acceleration of P at the time t. c. The velocity of P when t 3s. d. The displacement of P during the 6 th seconds of moving. Solution a. Given that s t t 3 8, So ds v dt v 16t 3t b. We know that dv d s a dt dt, a 16 6t c. When t 3s, v 16t 3t 16(3) 3(3) ms 1 7

During 6s means t 6s, 3 st 6s 8(6) (6) m 3 st 5s 8(5) (5) m s s t s 6 t m Example : A car moves along a straight line so that the displacement, s in meter and t in 3 seconds passes through O is given by s t 6t 5t. Find a. The displacement of the car when t 3s. b. The velocity of the car when its acceleration is c. The time when the car returns back to O. 1ms. Solution: a. When t 3s. 3 s t 6t 5t 3 3 6(3) m 5(3) 73

Displacement, s of the car after 3 seconds. b. Displacement, s of the car in fourth second. c. Velocity, v of the car when the acceleration, a 10 m/ s d. Acceleration of the car at the time t = seconds. 75

21 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS RATE OF CHANGE If variables both vary with respect to time and have a relation between them, we can express the rate of change of one in terms of the other. We need to differentiate both sides w.r.t. (with respect to) time d dt. If y f x, then respectively. dy dy dx where dy dt dx dt dt and dx dt are the rates of change of y and x Example 1: If the radius of a circle increase at the rate of when the radius is 10cm cms, find the rate of area at the instant Solution: Given, Find, dr dt 1 5 da? dt r 10cm We know that the area of a circle is, A r Differentiate A with respect to r, da r dr 77

27 BA01 ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS OPTIMIZATION PROBLEM Important! The process of finding maximum or minimum values is called optimisation. We are trying to do things like maximise the profit in a company, or minimise the costs, or find the least amount of material to make a particular object. These are very important in the world of industry. Example 1: If the sum of height, h cm and radius, r cm of a cone is 15cm. What is the maximum volume of the cone? Solution: Substitute (1) into () ( 1) () ( ) 83
