Deer Population A deer population grows logistically with growth constant k = 0.4 year −1 in a forest with a carrying capacity of 1000 deer. (a) Find the deer population P(t) if the initial population is P 0 = 100. (b) How long does it take for the deer population to reach 500? ` (64)
THEOREM 2 Vector-Valued Derivatives Are Computed Componentwise A vector-valued function r(t) = x (t), y (t) is differentiable iff each component is differentiable. In this case, Calculate r”(3), where r(t) = ln t, t. Velocity & Acceleration Vectors (66)

The equation r = 4 sin θ defines a circle of radius 2 tangent to the x-axis at the origin. The right semicircle is “swept out” as θ varies from 0 to Use Theorem 1 to compute the area of the right semicircle with equation r = 4 sin θ. By THM 1, the area of the right semicircle is Area Inside the Polar Curve (72)

Euler’s Method (74) Let y (t) be the solution of Use Euler’s Method with time step h = 0.1 to approximate y (0.5).
Let y (t) be the solution of Use Euler’s Method with time step h = 0.1 to approximate y (0.5). When h = 0.1, y k is an approximation to y (0 + k (0.1)) = y (0.1k), so y 5 is an approximation to y (0.5). It is convenient to organize calculations in the following table. Note that the value y k+1 computed in the last column of each line is used in the next line to continue the process. Thus, Euler’s Method yields the approximation y (0.5) ≈ y 5 ≈ 0.1. c c c c c c c c c c c ccc c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c cc c c c c c Is this an overestimate or underestimate?

Shortcuts to Finding Taylor Series Write a Series for… (77) There are several methods for generating new Taylor series from known ones. First of all, we can differentiate and integrate Taylor series term by term within its interval of convergence, by Theorem 2 of Section 11.6. We can also multiply two Taylor series or substitute one Taylor series into another (we omit the proofs of these facts). Section 11.6 Find the Maclaurin series for f (x) = x 2 e x.
The sum of the reciprocal powers n −p is called a p-series. THEOREM 3 Convergence of p-Series The infinite series converges if p > 1 and diverges otherwise. Here are two examples of p-series: Convergence of a Geometric Series (79)
