It is by using the Second Fundamental Theorum of Calculus
If f is a continuous function on some interval (a, b) and an accumulation function A is defined by A(x) = (integral of) f(t) dt, then A’(x) = f(x).

Therefore, v(t) is equal to the underlying function.
**V(t) = 1 x(cos x)  (ln x)(sin x)**
We find the roots of the function and whether its positively or negatively valued on either side of the root.
We remember our domain and only search for the roots in between.
**v(t) 1 ____+_____'______ 8**
**5.2056**
Thus we know when our particle is moving to the left when it is negatively valued.

(d) Find the total distance traveled by the particle from ''t'' = 1 to ''t'' = 8.
!!**Solution**
!!!a) Write a formula for the velocity of the particle at time t.
(image)
There are two ways on finding the velocity of this accumulation function. The long way moves antidifferentiating s(t) and then differentiating it once again. With that equation being a bit on the ugly side. We’ll go straight on the short, sweet, and easy way.
It is by using the Second Fundamental Theorum of Calculus
If f is a continuous function on some interval (a, b) and an accumulation function A is defined by A(x) = (integral of) f(t) dt, then A’(x) = f(x).
Therefore, v(t) is equal to the underlying function.
**V(t) = 1 x(cos x)  (ln x)(sin x)**

!!!b) At what instant does the particle reach its maximum speed?
Always understand what you are being asked for. Speed is the absolute value of velocity. Therefore does not relate to the direction its going (+/). Another thing it is asking for the maximum, meaning the endpoints are possibilities.
Graphing the velocity function and tracing for a maximum of the function, we get it has one on where **x=3.7312**. Tracing for a minimum of the function, we get that it has one on where **x=1.2340** and **x= 6.7002**.
We evaluate the points and endpoints using the absolute value of the velocity function, **V(t)**.
**V(1) = 0.4597 <Endpoint
V(1.2340) = 0.3938
V(3.7312)= 4.8334
V(6.7002) = 5.8964
V(8) = 0.1067 < Endpoint
Therefore, the particle reach its maximum speed at the instant when x=6.7002.**

!!!c) When is the particle moving to the left?
We look at the velocity function we found in part a.
We find the roots of the function and whether its positively or negatively valued on either side of the root.
We remember our domain and only search for the roots in between.
**v(t) 1 ____+___________ 8**
**5.2056**
Thus we know when our particle is moving to the left when it is negatively valued.
**Therefore, the particle is moving to the left during (5.2036,8%5D.**

!!!d)Find the total distance traveled by the particle from t=1 to t=8.
**Keyword: total distance**
To find total distance we split the integral to the # of roots it has in the domain plus one. Our particular function has one root in the restricted domain. Therefore, we split the calculations into two.
**S(5.2036)  (integral from 5.2036 to 8) v(t) dt
= 10.9923  (10.4675)
= 21.4599**

**Solution**
a)
y=4x^(2/3) and y=0
4x^(2/3)=0 (find the intersection between the graph and x axis)
x=8
4x^(2/3)=0 (find the intersection between the graph and xaxis)
x=8 Is where the two lines intersect and enclose the Area of region R.
(Σ takes the place of the integral sign and the numbers after it are the (a,b) of the integral.)
Σ(0,8)4x^(2/3) dx
=(4x(3/5)x^(5/3))(0,8) (the area of R is the integral of the intergral of the function minus 0)
=12.8
=(4x(3/5)x^(5/3))(0,8) (the area of R is the integral of the function **4x^(2/3)** from **(0,8)**)
A= %5B4(**8**) (3/5)(**8**^(5/3))%5D%5B4(**0**) (3/5)(**0**^(5/3))%5D (Substitute **8** and **0** into the function **4x^(2/3)** to solve for the Area of region R)
A= %5B12.8%5D %5B0%5D
**A=12.8**
b)
V=πΣ(0,8)(4x^(2/3))^2dx
=91.8951 (the volume of the solid πr^2 and radius is the function,and just use calculator to calculate the value is 91.8951)
c) x=K divides the region into two regions
so,
V=πΣ(0,k) (4x^(2/3))^2 dx=91.8951/2=45.94755
Σ(0,k)(4x^(2/3))^2=14.6286
(16x(24/5)x^(5/3)+ (9/13)x^(13/9))(0,K)=14.6286 (Antidifferentiate it)
16K(24/5)k^(5/3)+(9/13)k^(13/9)=14.6286 (substutition)
k=1.333
V=πΣ(0,k) (4x^(2/3))^2 dx=91.8951/2 (The volume is divided by 2 in order to solve for the x value of **k** which divides the volume generated by rotating region R into two equal volumes.)
%5BπΣ(0,k)(4x^(2/3))^2%5D/π = 45.94755/π (Divide both sides by π)
Σ(0,k)**(4x^(2/3))^2**=14.6286 **Antidifferentiate** the integral)
(16x(24/5)x^(5/3)+ (9/13)x^(13/9))(0,K)=14.6286 (The next step involves ''substitution'')
''16K(24/5)**k**^(5/3)+(9/13)**k**^(13/9)''=14.6286 (Solve for **k**)
**k=1.333**

Because A between 0 and 10 is positive,when x=10 the value of **f** is **greater** than when x=0.
Now that x=0 has been eliminated as a choice for maximum, the other contender needs to be compared to x=10.
Take the integral from 10 to 20, and if it is positive, then x=20 is the max, if negative, x=10 is the max.
Σ(10,15) is a triangle.
A = b(h)/2
A = 5(5)/2
A = 12.5
Σ(15,20) is also a triangle.
A = b(h)/2
A = 5(10)/2
A = 25
Σ(10,20)(f'(x))= 2512.5
Σ(10,20)(f'(x))= 12.5
Because the integral from 10 to 20 is positive, the relative maximum occurs when x=20.

**Solution**
The relative maximum depends on the where the graph of the derivative of **f** equals zero. Due to the fact that the function **f**, exists from 0 to 20 including both endpoints. Between 0 and 20, the maximum will be visible on **f'** because it will be above the x axis before it **crosses** the x axis and exists below the x axis.
There are three x coordinates that need to be considered for this problem. The obvious x=10, and the endpoints, x=0 and x=20. No one knows if x=10 is greater than x=0, but if you take the integral from 0 to 10, you will find that out.
Σ(this takes the place of the integral sign)
Σ(0,10) Can be found by finding the area of a triangle.
A = b(h)/2
A = 10(10)/2
A = 50
Because A between 0 and 10 is positive,when x=10 the value of **f** is **greater** than when x=0.
Now that x=0 has been eliminated as a choice for maximum, the other contender needs to be compared to x=10.
Take the integral from 10 to 20, and if it is positive, then x=20 is the max, if negative, x=10 is the max.

You may have another idea for a significant contribution to the wiki. I'm open to your suggestions. Talk to me and make a suggestion. If we both agree that it would fall under this category then go ahead. Be creative with this; I'd really love to hear your ideas.
!!! A Constructive Modification means ...
you edit someone elses work, not your own, or only onw part of Question #6. You might correct we part of Question #6 (for example). You might correct a significant error or several small errors. Maybe you want to reorganize a page or the navigation from this home page. Maybe you want to edit someone else's entry, not for content, but for the way it's written such as by adding some meaningful colour or graphics. The main idea here is to move this project forward in some constructive way. Again, be creative with this.

**Solution**
ok... im not sure if i can do this but you guys.... this one's mine already. :D  ARA
a. g'(0) = %5B(x^2 + 1) * f ' (x)%5D + %5B2x * f(x)%5D
= %5B(0 + 1) * 1%5D + %5B0 * 3%5D
g'(0) = 1
b. g'(1) = %5B(1^2 + 1) * f ' (1)%5D + %5B2(1) * f(1)%5D
= 2*2 + 2* f(1)
**note: We are not sure about the value of f(1), BUT we can say that it is in fact a positive number since f(0) is equal to 3 and the graph of f'(x) is positive from that point onwards, therefore f(1) will definitely be greater than 3. **
 So, g'(1) is increasing at x = 1 because 4 + 2 * (+no.) is equal to a positive value.
c. g''(0) = ''%5B(x^2 + 1) * f''(x) + 2x * f ' (x)%5D + %5B2x * f ' (x) + 2 * f(x)%5D
= %5B1 * f''(0) + 0%5D + %5B0 + 2 * f(0)%5D
looking at the graph, I have estimated that f''(0) is quite close to .9 rather than 1. So,
= .9 + 6
g''(0) = 6.9
d. g''''(1) = %5B(1+1) * f''(1) + 2(1) * f ' (1)%5D + 2(1) * f '( 1) + 2 * f(1)%5D
**note: As we can see, f''(1) is hard to determine but because f'(1) is increasing, we can say that f''''(1) is a positive number.**
So, summing up the products, we get (if not exactly) a positive value. Therefore, g is concave up at x = 1 because its second derivative g'''' is positively valued at that point.

9 = %5B(k/2)(0) + C%5D²
Square root both sides.
(+/)√9 = √%5B(k/2)(0) + C%5D²
Must take the positive square root of 9 because their cannot be a negative value in terms of feet.
3 = C
y = %5B(k/2)t +3%5D²
Substitute the value of y(20) = 4 into the equation to solve for k.
