(a) Given that, the function is \(f(x) = 49 - x^{2}\) on the interval \([1, 7], n = 4.\)
It is known that, the formula for the Riemann-sum is \(\int_{a}^{b}f(x)dx=\Delta x \sum_{i=0}^{\infty} f(xi),\) where \(\Delta_{x} = \frac{b-a}{n}.\)
Obtain the value of \(\Delta_{x} = \frac{b-a}{n}\)
\((a = 1, b = 7, n = 4)\)
\(\Delta_{x} = \frac{7-1}{4}\)
\(= \frac{6}{4}\)
\(= \frac{3}{2}\)
Divide the interval \([1, 7]\) into \(n = 4\) sub-intervals with length \(\Delta_{x} = \frac{3}{2}\) as \([1, \frac{5}{2}], [\frac{5}{2}, 4] [4, \frac{11}{2}], [\frac{11}{2}, 7], [\frac{11}{2}, 7]\) and the right end-points are \(x_{1} = \frac{5}{2}, x_{2} = 4, x_{3} = \frac{11}{2}, x_{4} = 7\). Find the area under the curve over \([1,7]\) by using the right-end points as follows,
\(\int_{1}^{7}(49-x^{2})dx \approx \Delta x(f(x_{1})+f(x_{2})+f(x_{3})+f(x_{4}))\)
\(= \frac{3}{2} ((49 - \frac{5}{2}^2) + (49 - (4)^2) + (49 - \frac{11}{2}^2) + (49 - (7)^2))\)
\(= \frac{3}{2} (42.75 + 33 + 18.75 + 0)\)
\(= \frac{3}{2} (94.5)\)
\(= 141.75\)
Therefore, the area under the given curve over \([1,7]\) by the right-end points approximation is 141.75.
(b) The left end-points are \(x_{0} = 1, x_{1} = \frac{5}{2}, x_{2} = 4, x_{3} = \frac{11}{2}.\)
Find the area under the curve over \([1, 7]\) by using the left-end points as follows,
\(\int_{1}^{7}(49-x^{2})dx \approx \Delta x(f(x_{1})+f(x_{2})+f(x_{3})+f(x_{4}))\)
\(= \frac{3}{2}(((49 - (1)^{2}) + 49 - (\frac{5}{2})^{2}) + (49 - (4)^2) + (49 - (\frac{11}{2})^{2}))\)
\(= \frac{3}{2} (48 + 42.75 + 33 + 18.75)\)
\(= \frac{3}{2} (142.5)\)
\(= 213.75\)
Therefore, the area under the given curve over \([1,7]\) by the left-end points approximation is 213.75.

The dominant form of drag experienced by vehicles (bikes, cars,planes, etc.) at operating speeds is called form drag. Itincreases quadratically with velocity (essentially because theamount of air you run into increase with v and so does the amount of force you must exert on each small volume of air). Thus
\(\displaystyle{F}_{{{d}{r}{u}{g}}}={C}_{{d}}{A}{v}^{{2}}\)
where A is the cross-sectional area of the vehicle and \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}}\) is called the coefficient of drag.
Part A:
Consider a vehicle moving with constant velocity \(\displaystyle\vec{{{v}}}\). Find the power dissipated by form drag.
Express your answer in terms of \(\displaystyle{C}_{{d}},{A},\) and speed v.
Part B:
A certain car has an engine that provides a maximum power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{0}}\). Suppose that the maximum speed of thee car, \(\displaystyle{v}_{{0}}\), is limited by a drag force proportional to the square of the speed (as in the previous part). The car engine is now modified, so that the new power \(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}\) is 10 percent greater than the original power (\(\displaystyle{P}_{{1}}={110}\%{P}_{{0}}\)).
Assume the following:
The top speed is limited by air drag.
The magnitude of the force of air drag at these speeds is proportional to the square of the speed.
By what percentage, \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{v}_{{1}}-{v}_{{0}}}}{{{v}_{{0}}}}}\), is the top speed of the car increased?
Express the percent increase in top speed numerically to two significant figures.
