[T] An airplane’s Mach number M is the ratio of its speed to the speed of sound. When a plane is flying at a constant altitude, then its Mach angle is given by $\mu =2{\text{sin}}^{-1}\left(\frac{1}{M}\right).$

$T\left(x\right)=5+18\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}\text{sin}\left[\frac{\pi }{6}\left(x-4.6\right)\right],$

where $x$ is time in months and $x=1.00$ corresponds to January 1. Determine the month and day when the temperature is $21\text{°}\text{C}.$

$x\approx 6.69,8.51;$ so, the temperature occurs on June 21 and August 15

[T] A local art gallery has a portrait 3 ft in height that is hung 2.5 ft above the eye level of an average person. The viewing angle $\theta$ can be modeled by the function

$\theta ={\text{tan}}^{-1}\frac{5.5}{x}-{\text{tan}}^{-1}\frac{2.5}{x},$

where $x$ is the distance (in feet) from the portrait. Find the viewing angle when a person is 4 ft from the portrait.

[T] Use a calculator to evaluate ${\text{tan}}^{-1}\left(\text{tan}\left(2.1\right)\right)$ and ${\text{cos}}^{-1}\left(\text{cos}\left(2.1\right)\right).$ Explain the results of each.

${\text{tan}}^{-1}\left(\text{tan}\left(2.1\right)\right)\approx -1.0416;$ the expression does not equal 2.1 since $2.1>1.57=\frac{\pi }{2}$ —in other words, it is not in the restricted domain of $\text{tan}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}x.\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}{\text{cos}}^{-1}\left(\text{cos}\left(2.1\right)\right)=2.1,$ since 2.1 is in the restricted domain of $\text{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.1em}{0ex}}x.$

[T] Use a calculator to evaluate $\text{sin}\left({\text{sin}}^{-1}\left(-2\right)\right)$ and $\text{tan}\left({\text{tan}}^{-1}\left(-2\right)\right).$ Explain the results of each.

f(x) = x-2 g(x) = 3x + 5 fog(x)? f(x)/g(x)
fog(x)= f(g(x)) = x-2 = 3x+5-2 = 3x+3 f(x)/g(x)= x-2/3x+5

You have downloaded the aplication Calculus Volume 1, tackling about lessons for (mostly) college freshmen, Calculus 1: Differential, and this group I think aims to let concerns and questions from students who want to clarify something about the subject. Well, this is what I guess so.
