Consider the curves in the first quadrant that have equationsy=Aexp(7x), where A is a positive constant. Different valuesof A give different curves. The curves form a family,F. Let P=(6,6). Let C be the number of the family Fthat goes through P.
A. Let y=f(x) be the equation of C. Find f(x).
B. Find the slope at P of the tangent to C.
C. A curve D is a perpendicular to C at P. What is the slope of thetangent to D at the point P?
D. Give a formula g(y) for the slope at (x,y) of the member of Fthat goes through (x,y). The formula should not involve A orx.
E. A curve which at each of its points is perpendicular to themember of the family F that goes through that point is called anorthogonal trajectory of F. Each orthogonal trajectory to Fsatisfies the differential equation dy/dx = -1/g(y), where g(y) isthe answer to part D.
Find a function of h(y) such that x=h(y) is the equation of theorthogonal trajectory to F that passes through the point P.
