2 7.3 Quadratic Patterns 325 Recognizing a Quadratic Pattern The table shows the numbers of days an offshore oil well has been leaking and the diameters (in miles) of the oil spill. (a) Describe the pattern of the numbers of days. (b) Use a spreadsheet to graph the data and describe the graph. Diameter (mi) Days The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies in Gulfport, Mississippi, reported that a large number of sea turtles were found dead along the Mississippi coast following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 21. a. One way is to find the second differences of the numbers of days (Constant) Because the second differences are constant, the pattern is quadratic. b. The graph is a curve that looks something like exponential growth. However, it is not an exponential curve. In mathematics, this curve is called parabolic. Days of leakage (at 5, barrels per day) Size of an Oil Spill Diameter of oil spill (miles) 5 6 Use a spreadsheet to make various graphs, including a scatter plot and a column graph, of the data in Example 1. Which type of graph do you think best shows the data? Explain your reasoning.

3 326 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Using a Quadratic Pattern to Predict a Future Event Predicting a Future Event The Mauna Loa Observatory is an atmospheric research facility that has been collecting data related to atmospheric change since the 195s. The observatory is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The graph shows the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in Earth s atmosphere. Use the graph to predict the level of carbon dioxide in 25. The graph looks like it has a slight curve upward, which means that the rate of increase is increasing. Using a linear regression program, the prediction for 25 is 443 parts per million. CO 2 parts per million CO 2 parts per million Carbon Dioxide Levels in Earth s Atmosphere Year Carbon Dioxide Levels in Earth s Atmosphere Quadratic: 492 in Year Linear: 443 in 25 Using a quadratic regression program, the prediction for 25 is 492 parts per million The graph shows the results of a plant experiment with different levels of nitrogen in various pots of soil. The vertical axis measures the number of blades of grass that grew in each pot of soil. Describe the pattern and explain its meaning. Blades of grass per pot Plant Experiment 1st harvest 2nd harvest Nitrogen (mg/l)

4 7.3 Quadratic Patterns 327 Describing Lift for Airplanes For a given wing area, the lift of an airplane (or a bird) is proportional to the square of its speed. The table shows the lifts for a Boeing 737 airplane at various speeds. Speed (mph) Lift (1s of lb) a. Is the pattern of the lifts quadratic? Why? b. Sketch a graph to show how the lift increases as the speed increases. The Boeing 737 is the most widely used commercial jet in the world. It represents more than 25% of the world s fleet of large commercial jet aircraft. a. Begin by finding the second differences of the lifts (Constant) Because the second differences are constant, the pattern is quadratic. b. Notice that as the speed increases, the lift increases quadratically. 1,8, Airplane Lift 1,6, 1,4, Lift (pounds) 1,2, 1,, 8, 6, 4, 2, Speed (miles per hour) A Boeing 737 weighs about 1, pounds at takeoff. c. Estimate how fast the plane must travel to get enough lift to take flight. d. Explain why bigger planes need longer runways.

5 328 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Comparing Linear, Exponential, and Quadratic Models Conducting an Experiment with Gravity You conduct an experiment to determine the motion of a free-falling object. You drop a shot put ball from a height of 256 feet and measure the distance it has fallen at various times. Time (sec) Distance (ft) Is the pattern of the distances linear, exponential, quadratic, or none of these? Explain your reasoning. Earth s gravitational attraction was explained by Sir Isaac Newton s Law of Universal Gravitation. The law was published in Newton s Principia in It states that the force of attraction between two particles is directly proportional to the product of the masses of the two particles, and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Begin by sketching a graph of the data. Dropping a Ball Distance fallen (feet) Time (seconds) The pattern is not linear because the graph is not a line. The pattern is not exponential because the ratios of consecutive terms are not equal. The pattern is quadratic because the second differences are equal (Constant) A classic problem in physics is determining the speed of an accelerating object. Estimate the speed of the falling shot put ball at the following times. Explain your reasoning. a. sec b. 1 sec c. 2 sec d. 3 sec e. 4 sec

6 7.3 Quadratic Patterns 329 Describing Muscle Strength The muscle strength of a person s upper arm is related to its circumference. The greater the circumference, the greater the muscle strength, as indicated in the table. Circumference (in.) Muscle strength (lb) Is the pattern of the muscle strengths linear, exponential, quadratic, or none of these? Explain your reasoning. 12 in. Begin by sketching a graph of the data. Muscle Strength in. Strength (pounds) Circumference (inches) A typical upper arm circumference is about 12 inches for women and 13 inches for men. As in Example 5, the pattern is not linear or exponential. By calculating l the second differences, you can see that the pattern is quadratic (Constant) Example 6 shows that the muscle strength of a person s upper arm is proportional to the square of its circumference. Which of the following are also true? Explain your reasoning. a. Muscle strength is proportional to the diameter of the muscle. b. Muscle strength is proportional to the square of the diameter of the muscle. c. Muscle strength is proportional to the cross-sectional area of the muscle.

7 33 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature 7.3 Exercises Football In Exercises 1 3, describe the pattern in the table. (See Examples 1 and 2.) 1. The table shows the heights of a football at various times after a punt. Time (sec) Height (ft) The table shows the distances gained by a running back after various numbers of rushing attempts. Rushing attempts Distance (yd) The table shows the heights of a football at various times after a field goal attempt. Time (sec) Height (ft) Punt In Exercise 1, extend the pattern to find the height of the football after 4 seconds. (See Example 1.) 5. Passing a Football The table shows the heights of a football at various times after a quarterback passes it to a receiver. Use a spreadsheet to graph the data. Describe the graph. (See Example 2.) Time (sec) Height (ft) Graph Use the graph in Exercise 5 to determine how long the height of the football increases.

9 332 Chapter 7 The Mathematics of Patterns & Nature Gravity In Exercises 13 16, determine whether the pattern in the table is linear, exponential, quadratic, or none of these. Explain your reasoning. (See Examples 5 and 6.) 13. An object is dropped from a height of 5 feet on the moon. on. The table shows the distances it has fallen at various times. Time (sec) Distance (ft) An object is dropped from a height of 15 feet on Venus. The table shows the distances it has fallen at various times. Time (sec) Distance (ft) An object is dropped from a height of 3 feet on Mars. The table shows the heights of the object at various times. Time (sec) Height (ft) An object is dropped from a height of 16 feet on Jupiter. The table shows the heights of the object at various times. Time (sec) Height (ft) Sign of Second Differences Graph the data in Exercises 14 and 15 on the same coordinate plane. Compare the graphs. What appears to be the relationship between the sign of the second differences and the corresponding graph? 18. Moon The moon s gravitational force is much less than that of Earth. Use the table in Exercise 13 and the table in Example 5 on page 328 to estimate how many times stronger Earth s gravitational force is than the moon s gravitational force. Explain your reasoning.

10 7.3 Quadratic Patterns 333 Extending Concepts Business Data from real-world applications rarely match a linear, exponential, or quadratic model perfectly.
