Math 103 Notes Chapter 4Integrating the above, we getR(t) − R(0) =(1.5t − cos(πs/5) ) ∣ ∣∣∣t.π/50Thus, using the initial value, R(0) = r 0 (which is a constant), and evaluating the integral, leads toR(t) = r 0 + 1.5t − 5 cos(πt/5)π(The constant at the end of the expression stems from the fact that cos(0) = 1.) A graph of theradius of the tree over time (using r 0 = 1) is shown in Figure 4.5. This function is equivalent tothe area associated with the function shown in Figure 4.4. Notice that Figure 4.5 confirms that theradius keeps growing over the entire period, but that its growth rate (slope of the curve) alternatesbetween higher and lower values.+ 5 π .25201510502 4 6 8 10 12 14tFigure 4.5: Rate of change of radius, f(t) for a growing tree.After ten years we haveBut cos(2π) = 1, soR(10) = r 0 + 15 − 5 π cos(2π) + 5 π .R(10) = r 0 + 15.(b) The mass of the tree is density times volume, and since the density is taken to be 1 gm/cm 3 ,we need only obtain the initial and final volume. Taking the trunk to be cylindrical means that thevolume at a given time isV (t) = πR(t) 2 h.v.2005.1 - January 5, 2009 10

Math 103 Notes Chapter 4The ratio of final and initial volumes (and hence the ratio of final and initial mass) is( ) 2V (10)V (0) = π[R(10)]2 hπr0 2h= [R(10)]2 r0 + 15= .r02 r 04.3.3 Birth rates and total birthsAfter World War II, the birth rate in western countries increased dramatically. Suppose that thenumber of babies born (in millions per year) was given bywhere t is time in years after the end of the war.b(t) = 5 + 2t, 0 ≤ t ≤ 10(a) How many babies in total were born during this time period (i.e in the first 10 years afterthe war)?(b) Find the time T 0 such that the total number of babies born from the end of the war up tothe time T 0 was precisely 14 million.Solution(a) To find the number of births, we would integrate the birth rate, b(t) over the given time period.The net change in the population due to births (neglecting deaths) isP(10) − P(0) =∫ 100b(t) dt =∫ 100(5 + 2t) dt = (5t + t 2 )| 100 = 50 + 100 = 150[million babies].(b) Denote by T the time at which the total number of babies born was 14 million. Then, [inunits of million]I =I =∫ T0∫ T0b(t) dt = 14(5 + 2t) dt = 5T + T 2But ⇒ 5T + T 2 = 14 ⇒ T 2 + 5T − 14 = 0 ⇒ (T − 2)(T + 7) = 0. This has two solutions, but wereject T = −7 since we are looking for time after the War. Thus we find that T = 2 years, i.e ittook two years for 14 million babies to have been born.4.4 Production and removalThe process of integration can be used to convert rates of production and removal into net amountspresent at a given time. The example in this section is of this type. We investigate a processin which a substance accumulates as it is being produced, but disappears through some removalprocess. We would like to determine when the quantity of material increases, and when it decreases.Here we will combine both quantitative calculations and qualitative graph-interpretation skills.v.2005.1 - January 5, 2009 11
