Solve The Following Questions.

Question1. Show that the function given by f(x) = e2x  is strictly increasing on R.

Solution :
Given: f'(x) = e2x

Now,

x ∈ R

Since the value of  e2x   is always positive for any real value of x, e2x > 0.

⇒2e2x > 0

⇒f'(x) > 0

So f(x) is incerasing on R.

Solution :
Given:

∴dydx=11+x-(2+x)(2)-2x(1)(2+x)2=11+x-4(2+x)2=x2(1+x)(2+x)2

Now, dydx=0

⇒x2(1+x)(2+x)2=0⇒x2=0      [(2+x)≠0 as x>-1]⇒x=0

Since x > -1 , point = 0 divides the domain (−1, ∞) in two disjoint intervals i.e., −1 < x  < 0 and x > 0

When −1 < x < 0, we have:

x<0⇒x2>0x>-1⇒(2+x)>0⇒(2+x2)>0

∴ y’=x2(1+x)(2+x)2>0

Also, when x > 0

x>0⇒x2>0, (2+x)2>0

∴ y’=x2(1+x)(2+x)2>0

Hence, function f  is increasing throughout this domain

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y =x3 − 3x2 − 9x + 7

When x = 3, y = (3)− 3 (3)2 − 9 (3) + 7 = 27 − 27 − 27 + 7 = −20.

When x = −1,y = (−1)3 − 3 (−1)2 − 9 (−1) + 7 = −1 − 3 + 9 + 7 = 12.

Hence, the points at which the tangent is parallel to thex-axis are (3, −20) and (−1, 12).

Question8. Find a point on the curvey = (x − 2)2 at which the tangent is parallel to the chord joining the points (2, 0) and (4, 4).

The equation of the given curve is y =x3 − 11x + 5.

The equation of the tangent to the given curve is given as y =x − 11 (which is of the form y =mx +c).

∴Slope of the tangent = 1

Now, the slope of the tangent to the given curve at the point (x,y) is given by, dy/dx = 3x2 – 11

Then, we have:

Whenx = 2,y = (2)3 − 11 (2) + 5 = 8 − 22 + 5 = −9.

Whenx = −2,y = (−2)3 − 11 (−2) + 5 = −8 + 22 + 5 = 19.

Hence, the required points are (2, −9) and (−2, 19). But, both these points should satisfy the equation of the tangent as there would be point of contact between tangent and the curve.

∴ (2, −9) is the required point as (−2, 19) is not satisfying the given equation of tangent.

Question10.  Find the equation of all lines having slope −1 that are tangents to the curve y = 1/x-1 ≠ 1

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y = 1/x-1 ≠ 1

The slope of the tangents to the given curve at any point (x,y) is given by,

dy/dx = -1/(x-1)2

If the slope of the tangent is −1, then we have:

Whenx = 0,y = −1 and when x = 2,y = 1.

Thus, there are two tangents to the given curve having slope −1. These are passing through the points (0, −1) and (2, 1).

∴The equation of the tangent through (0, −1) is given by,

y − (-1 )= −1 (x − 0)

⇒y +1 = −x

⇒y +x +1 = 0

∴The equation of the tangent through (2, 1) is given by,

y − 1 = −1 (x − 2)

⇒y − 1 = −x + 2

⇒y +x − 3 = 0

Hence, the equations of the required lines are y +x + 1 = 0 and y +x − 3 = 0.

Question11. Find the equation of all lines having slope 2 which are tangents to the curve y = 1/x-3 ≠ 3

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y = 1/x-3 ≠ 3

The slope of the tangent to the given curve at any point (x,y) is given by,

On differentiating with respect tox, we get:

(iii) The equation of the curve isy =x3.

On differentiating with respect tox, we get:

(a) parallel to the line 2x −y + 9 = 0

(b) perpendicular to the line 5y − 15x = 13.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y = x2 − 2x + 7

On differentiating with respect tox, we get:

dy/dx = 2x – 2

(a) The equation of the line is 2x −y + 9 = 0.

2x −y + 9 = 0⇒y = 2x+ 9

This is of the formy = mx+c.

∴Slope of the line = 2

If a tangent is parallel to the line 2x −y + 9 = 0, then the slope of the tangent is equal to the slope of the line.

Therefore, we have:

2 = 2x − 2

2x = 4

x = 2

Now,x = 2

y = 4 − 4 + 7 = 7

Thus, the equation of the tangent passing through (2, 7) is given by,

y – 7 = 2(x – 2)

y – 2x – 3 = 0

Hence, the equation of the tangent line to the given curve (which is parallel to line 2x −y + 9 = 0) is y – 2x – 3 = 0.

(b) The equation of the line is 5y − 15x = 13.

5y − 15x = 13⇒ y = 3x + 13/5

This is of the formy =mx+c.

∴Slope of the line = 3

If a tangent is perpendicular to the line 5y − 15x = 13, then the slope of the tangent is -1/slope of the line = -1/3

Thus, the equation of the tangent passing throughis given by,

Hence, the equation of the tangent line to the given curve (which is perpendicular to line 5y − 15x = 13) is 36y + 12x – 227 = 0

Question16. Show that the tangents to the curvey = 7x3 + 11 at the points wherex = 2 and x = −2 are parallel.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y = 7x+ 11.

It is observed that the slopes of the tangents at the points where x = 2 and x = −2 are equal.

Hence, the two tangents are parallel.

Question17. Find the points on the curvey =x3 at which the slope of the tangent is equal to they-coordinate of the point.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve isy =x3.

The slope of the tangent at the point (x,y) is given by,

When the slope of the tangent is equal to they-coordinate of the point, theny = 3x2.

Also, we havey =x3.

∴3x2 =x3

⇒x2 (x − 3) = 0

⇒x = 0,x = 3

Whenx = 0, theny = 0 and whenx = 3, theny = 3(3)2 = 27.

Hence, the required points are (0, 0) and (3, 27).

Question18. For the curvey = 4x− 2x5, find all the points at which the tangents passes through the origin.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve isy = 4x3 − 2x5.

When x = 1,y = 4 (1)3 − 2 (1)5 = 2.

When x = −1,y = 4 (−1)3 − 2 (−1)5 = −2.

Hence, the required points are (0, 0), (1, 2), and (−1, −2).

Question19. Find the points on the curve x2 +y2 − 2x − 3 = 0 at which the tangents are parallel to the x-axis.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is x2 +y2 − 2x − 3 = 0.

On differentiating with respect to x, we have:

But, x2 +y2 − 2x − 3 = 0 for x = 1.

y2 = 4⇒ y = ± 2

Hence, the points at which the tangents are parallel to thex-axis are (1, 2) and (1, −2).

Question20. Find the equation of the normal at the point (am2, am3) for the curve ay2 =x3.

Solution :

On differentiating with respect tox, we have:

Question21. Find the equation of the normals to the curve y =x3 + 2x+ 6 which are parallel to the line x + 14y + 4 = 0.

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y =x3 + 2x + 6.

The slope of the tangent to the given curve at any point (x,y) is given by,

∴ Slope of the normal to the given curve at any point (x,y) =

The equation of the given line is x + 14y + 4 = 0.

x + 14y + 4 = 0⇒(which is of the form y =mx +c)

∴Slope of the given line = -1/14

If the normal is parallel to the line, then we must have the slope of the normal being equal to the slope of the line.

When x = 2, y = 8 + 4 + 6 = 18.

When x = −2, y = − 8 − 4 + 6 = −6.

Therefore, there are two normals to the given curve with slope -1/14 and passing through the points (2, 18) and (−2, −6).

Thus, the equation of the normal through (2, 18) is given by,

And, the equation of the normal through (−2, −6) is given by,

Hence, the equations of the normals to the given curve (which are parallel to the given line) are x + 14y + 86 = 0.

(A) (1, 2)

(B) (2, 1)

(C) (1, −2)

(D) (−1, 2)

Solution :
The equation of the given curve is y2 = 4x

Differentiating with respect tox, we have:

Therefore, the slope of the tangent to the given curve at any point (x,y) is given by,

dy/dx = 2/y

The given line isy = x + 1 (which is of the form y =mx +c)

∴ Slope of the line = 1

The liney = x + 1 is a tangent to the given curve if the slope of the line is equal to the slope of the tangent. Also, the line must intersect the curve.

Solve The Following Questions.

Question1. Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by

(i) f(x) = (2x − 1)2 + 3

(ii) f(x) = 9x2 + 12x + 2

(iii) f(x) = −(x − 1)2 + 10

(iv) g(x) =x3 + 1

Solution :
(i) The given function is f(x) = (2x − 1)2 + 3.

It can be observed that (2x− 1)2 ≥ 0 for every x∈R.

Therefore, f(x) = (2x − 1)2 + 3 ≥ 3 for every x∈R.

The minimum value of f is attained when 2x − 1 = 0.

2x − 1 = 0⇒ x = 1/2

∴Minimum value of f == 3

Hence, functionf does not have a maximum value.

(ii) The given function is f(x) = 9x2 + 12x + 2 = (3x + 2)2 − 2.

It can be observed that (3x + 2)2 ≥ 0 for every x∈R.

Therefore, f(x) = (3x + 2)2 − 2 ≥ −2 for every x∈R.

The minimum value of f is attained when 3x + 2 = 0.

3x + 2 = 0⇒ x = -2/3

∴Minimum value off =

Hence, functionf does not have a maximum value.

(iii) The given function is f(x) = − (x − 1)2 + 10.

It can be observed that (x − 1)2 ≥ 0 for every x∈R.

Therefore,f(x) = − (x − 1)2 + 10 ≤ 10 for every x∈R.

The maximum value off is attained when (x − 1) = 0.

(x − 1) = 0⇒x = 1

∴Maximum value off = f(1) = − (1 − 1)2 + 10 = 10

Hence, functionf does not have a minimum value.

(iv) The given function isg(x) =x3 + 1.

Hence, functiong neither has a maximum value nor a minimum value.

Question2. Find the maximum and minimum values, if any, of the following functions given by

Solution :

Question4. Prove that the following functions do not have maxima or minima:

(i) f(x) =ex

(ii) g(x) = logx

(iii) h(x) =x3 +x+ x + 1

Solution :
We have,

f(x) = ex

∴ f'(x) = ex

Now, if f'(x) = 0. But, the exponential function can never assume 0 for any value ofx.

Therefore, there does not existc∈R such that f'(c) = 0

Hence, functionf does not have maxima or minima.

We have,

g(x) = logx

∴ g'(x) = 1/x

Since log xnis defined for a positive number x, g'(x) > 0 for any x

Therefore, there does not existc∈R such that g'(c) = 0

Hence, functiong does not have maxima or minima.

We have,

h(x) =x3 +x2 +x + 1

h'(x) =3x2 +2x + 1

Now,

h(x) = 0 ⇒ 3x2 + 2x + 1 = 0⇒

Therefore, there does not exist c∈R such that  h'(c) = 0

Hence, functionh does not have maxima or minima.

Question5. Find the absolute maximum value and the absolute minimum value of the following functions in the given intervals:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

(iv)

Solution :
(i) The given function isf(x) = x3.

f'(x) = 3x2

Now, f'(x) = 0 ⇒  x =  0

Then, we evaluate the value off at critical point x = 0 and at end points of the interval [−2, 2].

f(0) = 0

f(−2) = (−2)3 = −8

f(2) = (2)3 = 8

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value off on [−2, 2] is 8 occurring atx = 2. Also, the absolute minimum value off on [−2, 2] is −8 occurring at x = −2.

(ii) The given function is f(x) = sinx + cosx.

Then, we evaluate the value off at critical point π/4 and at the end points of the interval [0, π].

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value off on [0, π] is√2  occurring atx = π4 and the absolute minimum value off on [0, π] is −1 occurring atx = π.

Then, we evaluate the value off at critical pointx = 4 and at the end points of the interval.

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value off onis 8 occurring atx = 4 and the absolute minimum value off onis −10 occurring atx = −2.

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value off on [−3, 1] is 19 occurring atx = −3 and the minimum value off on [−3, 1] is 3 occurring atx = 1.

Question6. Find the maximum profit that a company can make, if the profit function is given by

p(x) = 41 − 72x − 18x2

Solution :
The profit function is given as p (x) = 41 − 72x− 18x2.

∴ p'(x)=−72−36x

⇒ x=−7236 =−2

Also, p”(−2)=−36 <0 By second derivative test, x=−2

is the point of local maxima of p.

∴ Maximum profit=p(−2)

=41−72(−2)−18(−2)2

=41+144−72=113

Hence, the maximum profit that the company can make is 113 units. The solution given in the book has some error. The solution is created according to the question given in the book.

Question7. Find both the maximum value and the minimum value of  3x− 8x3 + 12x2 − 48x + 25 on the interval [0, 3]

Solution :
Let f(x) = 3x− 8x+ 12x2 − 48x + 25.

Now,f'(x) = 0 gives x = 2 or x2+ 2 = 0 for which there are no real roots.

Therefore, we consider only x = 2∈[0, 3].

Now, we evaluate the value off at critical pointx = 2 and at the end points of the interval [0, 3].

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value offon [0, 3] is 25 occurring atx= 0 and the absolute minimum value off at [0, 3] is − 39 occurring atx = 2.

Question8. At what points in the interval [0, 2π], does the function sin 2x attain its maximum value?

Solution :
Letf(x) = sin 2x.

Question9. What is the maximum value of the function sinx + cosx?

Solution :
Let f(x) = sinx + cosx.

Now,f”(x) will be negative when (sinx + cosx) is positive i.e., when sin xand cosxare both positive. Also, we know that sinx and cosx both are positive in the first quadrant. Then,f”(x) will be negative when x ∊ (0, π/2).

Thus, we consider x = π/4

∴By second derivative test,f will be the maximum at x = π/4 and the maximum value of f is.

Question10. Find the maximum value of 2x3 − 24x + 107 in the interval [1, 3]. Find the maximum value of the same function in [−3, −1].

Solution :
Let f(x) = 2x3 − 24x + 107.

We first consider the interval [1, 3].

Then, we evaluate the value off at the critical pointx = 2∈ [1, 3] and at the end points of the interval [1, 3].

f(2) = 2(8) − 24(2) + 107 = 16 − 48 + 107 = 75

f(1) = 2(1) − 24(1) + 107 = 2 − 24 + 107 = 85

f(3) = 2(27) − 24(3) + 107 = 54 − 72 + 107 = 89

Hence, the absolute maximum value off(x) in the interval [1, 3] is 89 occurring atx = 3.

Next, we consider the interval [−3, −1].

Evaluate the value off at the critical pointx = −2∈ [−3, −1] and at the end points of the interval [1, 3].

f(−3) = 2 (−27) − 24(−3) + 107 = −54 + 72 + 107 = 125

f(−1) = 2(−1) − 24 (−1) + 107 = −2 + 24 + 107 = 129

f(−2) = 2(−8) − 24 (−2) + 107 = −16 + 48 + 107 = 139

Hence, the absolute maximum value off(x) in the interval [−3, −1] is 139 occurring atx = −2.

Question11. It is given that atx = 1, the function x4− 62x2 +ax + 9 attains its maximum value, on the interval [0, 2]. Find the value of a.

Let f(x) =x4 − 62x2 +ax + 9.

Hence, the value ofa is 120.

Question12. Find the maximum and minimum values ofx + sin 2x on [0, 2π].

Solution :
Let f(x) =x + sin 2x.

Hence, we can conclude that the absolute maximum value off(x) in the interval [0, 2π] is 2π occurring atx = 2π and the absolute minimum value off(x) in the interval [0, 2π] is 0 occurring atx = 0.

Question13. Find two numbers whose sum is 24 and whose product is as large as possible.

Solution :
Let one number be x. Then, the other number is (24 −x).

Let P(x) denote the product of the two numbers. Thus, we have:

∴By second derivative test,x = 12 is the point of local maxima of P. Hence, the product of the numbers is the maximum when the numbers are 12 and 24 − 12 = 12.

Question14. Find two positive numbers x andy such that x +y = 60 and xy3 is maximum.

Solution :
The two numbers arex andy such that x +y = 60.

⇒y = 60 −x

Let f(x) =xy3.

∴By second derivative test,x= 15 is a point of local maxima off. Thus, functionxy3 is maximum whenx = 15 andy = 60 − 15 = 45.

Hence, the required numbers are 15 and 45.

Question15. Find two positive numbersxandysuch that their sum is 35 and the product x2y5 is a maximum

Solution :
Let one number bex. Then, the other number is y = (35 −x).

Let P(x) =x2y5. Then, we have:

∴ By second derivative test, P(x) will be the maximum when x = 10 and y = 35 − 10 = 25.

Hence, the required numbers are 10 and 25.

Question16. Find two positive numbers whose sum is 16 and the sum of whose cubes is minimum.

Solution :
Let one number be x. Then, the other number is (16 −x).

Let the sum of the cubes of these numbers be denoted by S(x). Then,

∴ By second derivative test, x = 8 is the point of local minima of S.

Hence, the sum of the cubes of the numbers is the minimum when the numbers are 8 and 16 − 8 = 8.

Question17. A square piece of tin of side 18 cm is to made into a box without top, by cutting a square from each corner and folding up the flaps to form the box. What should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is the maximum possible?

Solution :
Let the side of the square to be cut off be x cm. Then, the length and the breadth of the box will be (18 − 2x) cm each and the height of the box is x cm.

Therefore, the volume V(x) of the box is given by,

∴ By second derivative test,x = 3 is the point of maxima of V.

Hence, if we remove a square of side 3 cm from each corner of the square tin and make a box from the remaining sheet, then the volume of the box obtained is the largest possible.

Question18. A rectangular sheet of tin 45 cm by 24 cm is to be made into a box without top, by cutting off square from each corner and folding up the flaps. What should be the side of the square to be cut off so that the volume of the box is the maximum possible?

Solution :
Let the side of the square to be cut off be x cm. Then, the height of the box isx, the length is 45 − 2x, and the breadth is 24 − 2x.

Therefore, the volumeV(x) of the box is given by,

∴By second derivative test,x = 5 is the point of maxima.

Hence, the side of the square to be cut off to make the volume of the box maximum possible is 5 cm.

Question19. Show that of all the rectangles inscribed in a given fixed circle, the square has the maximum area.

Solution :
Let a rectangle of lengthl and breadthb be inscribed in the given circle of radiusa.

Then, the diagonal passes through the centre and is of length 2a cm.

∴By the second derivative test, when l = √2a , then the area of the rectangle is the maximum.

Since l = b = √2a, the rectangle is a square.

Hence, it has been proved that of all the rectangles inscribed in the given fixed circle, the square has the maximum area.

Then, the other piece of wire to be made into a circle is of length (28 −l) m.

Now, side of square = l/4

Letr be the radius of the circle. Then, 2πr = 28 – ⇒ r = 1/2π(28  – l)

The combined areas of the square and the circle (A) is given by,

Solution :
Let randh be the radius and the height (altitude) of the cone respectively.

Then, the volume (V) of the cone is given as: V =13πr2h ⇒ h =3Vπr2

The surface area (S)of the cone is given by,

S = πrl (wherel is the slant height)

Hence, for a given volume, the right circular cone of the least curved surface has an altitude equal to√2 times the radius of the base.

Question25. Show that the semi-vertical angle of the cone of the maximum volume and of given slant height is tan-1 √2

Solution :
Letθ be the semi-vertical angle of the cone.

It is clear that

Let r,h, and l be the radius, height, and the slant height of the cone respectively.

The slant height of the cone is given as constant.

Now,r =l sinθ and h =l cosθ

The volume (V) of the cone is given by,

V=1/3πr2h =1/3π (l2sin2θ)(lcosθ)

=1/3πl3 sinθ cosθ

⇒dV/dθ =l3π/3 [sin2θ (−sinθ) + cosθ(2sinθ cosθ)]

=l3π / 3[−sin3θ+2sinθcos2θ]

⇒d2V / dθ2 =l3π / 3 [−3sin2θ cosθ + 2cos3θ− 4sin2θ cosθ ]

=l3π/3 [2cos3θ − 7sin2θ cosθ]

∴By second derivative test, the volume (V) is the maximum when θ = tan-1 √2

Hence, for a given slant height, the semi-vertical angle of the cone of the maximum volume is tan-1 √2.

9. A tank with rectangular base and rectangular sides, open at the top is to be constructed so that its depth is 2 m and volume is 8 m3. If building of tank costs ` 70 per sq. meter for the base and ` 45 per square meter for sides. What is the cost of least expensive tank?

Solution :
Given: Depth of tank = 2 m

Let lb, and h represent the length, breadth, and height of the tank respectively.

Then, we have height (h) = 2 m

Volume of the tank = 8m3

Volume of the tank = l × b × h

∴ 8 = × b × 2

lb = 4, b = 4/l

Now, area of the base = lb = 4

Area of the 4 walls (A) = 2h (l + b)

Thus, by second derivative test, the area is the minimum when l = 2.

We have b = h = 2.

∴Cost of building the base = Rs 70 × (lb) = Rs 70 (4) = Rs 280

Cost of building the walls = Rs 2h (l + b) × 45 = Rs 90 (2) (2 + 2)

= Rs 8 (90) = Rs 720

Required total cost = Rs (280 + 720) = Rs 1000

Hence, the total cost of the tank will be Rs 1000.

Thus, when

Therefore, by second derivative test, the area is the maximum when length x = 20/π + 4m.

Hence, the required dimensions of the window to admit maximum light is given bylength = 20/π+4m and breadth = 10/π+4m.

Question12. A point on the hypotenuse of a triangle is at distances a and b  from the sides of the triangle. Show that the maximum length of the hypotenuse is

Solution :

Let ΔABC be right-angled at B. Let AB = x and BC = y.

Let P be a point on the hypotenuse of the triangle such that P is at a distance of and b from the sides AB and BC respectively.

Let ∠C = θ.

We have,

AC = √x2 + y2

Now,

PC = cosec θ

And, AP = a sec θ

∴AC = AP + PC

⇒ AC = b cosec θ + a sec θ … (1)

Therefore, by second derivative test, the length of the hypotenuse is the maximum when tan θ(b/a) 1/3

Now, when tan θ(b/a) 1/3, we have:

Hence, the maximum length of the hypotenuses is

Question13. Find the points at which the function f  given by f(x) = (x – 2)4 (x + 1) 3has:

(i) local maxima

(ii) local minima

(iii) point of inflexion.

Solution :
Given: f(x) = (x – 2)4 (x + 1) 3

Now, for values of close to 2/7 and to the left of  2/7, f'(x) > 0. Also, for values of x close to 2/7  and to the right of 2/7, f'(x) < 0

Thus, x = 2/7 is the point of local maxima.

Now, for values of x close to 2 and to the left of 2, f'(x) < 0 Also, for values of x close to 2 and to the right of 2, f'(x) > 0

Thus, x = 2 is the point of local minima.

Now, as the value of x varies through −1,f'(x) does not changes its sign.

Thus, x = −1 is the point of inflexion.

Question14. Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of the function f given by f(x) = cos2 x + sin x , x ∊ [0,π ]

Solution :
Given:f(x) = cos2 x + sin x  ……….(i)

Now, evaluating the value of at critical points  x = π/2 and x = π/6 and at the end points of the interval [0,π ] (i.e., at x = 0 and x = π), we have:

Hence, the absolute maximum value of f is 5/4 occurring at x = π/6  and the absolute minimum value of f is 1 occurring at x = 0, π/2, and π.

Question15. Show that the altitude of the right circular cone of maximum volume that can be inscribed in a sphere of radius r is 4r/3

Solution :
Let r  be the radius of base of cone and h  be the height of the cone inscribed in a sphere of radius

The volume (V) of the cone is given by,

V = 1/3πR2h

Now, from the right triangle BCD, we have:

BC = √r2 – R2

h = r+√r2 – R2

Hence, it can be seen that the altitude of the right circular cone of maximum volume that can be inscribed in a sphere of radius r is 4r/3.

Question16. Let f be a function defined on [ab] such that f ‘(x) > 0, for all x ∈ (ab). Then prove that f is an increasing function on (ab).

Solution :

Let x1, x2∈(a,b) such that x1<x2.

Consider the sub-interval [x1, x2]. Since f(x) is differentiable on (a, b) and [x1, x2]⊂(a,b).

Therefore, f(x) is continous on [x1, x2] and differentiable on (x1, x2).

By the Lagrange’s mean value theorm, there exists c∈(x1, x2) such that

f'(c)=f(x2)-f(x1)x2-x1          …(1)

Since f'(x) ) > 0 for all x∈(a,b), so in particular, f'(c) > 0.

f'(c)>0⇒f(x2)-f(x1)x2-x1>0          [Using (1)]

⇒f(x2)-f(x1)>0          [∵ x2-x1>0 when x1<x2]

⇒f(x2)>f(x1)⇒f(x1)<f(x2)

Since x1, x2 are arbitrary points in (a,b).

Therefore, x1<x2⇒f(x1)<f(x2) for all x1,x2∈(a, b)

Hence,f(x) is increasing on (a,b).

Question17. Show that the height of the cylinder of maximum volume that can be inscribed in a sphere of radius R is 2R/√3 Also find the maximum volume.

Solution :

A sphere of fixed radius (R) is given.

Let r and h be the radius and the height of the cylinder respectively.

From the given figure, we have h = 2√R2 – r2

The volume (V) of the cylinder is given by,

Now, it can be observed that at

∴The volume is the maximum when r2 = 2R2/3

When r2 = 2R2/3, the height of the cylinder is

Hence, the volume of the cylinder is the maximum when the height of the cylinder is 2R/√3

Question18. Show that the height of the cylinder of greatest volume which can be inscribed in a right circular cone of height h and having semi-vertical angle α  is one-third that of the cone and the greatest volume of the cylinder is 4/27πhtan2α.

Solution :

The given right circular cone of fixed height (h) and semi-vertical angle (α) can be drawn as:

Here, a cylinder of radius R and height H is inscribed in the cone.

Then, ∠GAO = α, OG = r, OA = h, OE = R, and CE = H.

We have,

h tan α

Now, since ΔAOG is similar to ΔCEG, we have:

Now, the volume (V) of the cylinder is given by,

∴By second derivative test, the volume of the cylinder is the greatest when

Thus, the height of the cylinder is one-third the height of the cone when the volume of the cylinder is the greatest.

Now, the maximum volume of the cylinder can be obtained as:
