Let's sketch the graph of the following function:
$$y = 2x$$
on $$[-1, 2]$$

We can use several methods to find the value of the given expression either by Riemann Sum, or by another sum methods where we need to divide this interval into equal sub-intervals : But we use the easiest method that is we can simply integrate the following expression using the property of integration and then apply the limits:
The given expression is :
$$\int_{-1}^{2} 2x\ dx$$
Let's integrate the following expression:
$$\int_{-1}^{2} 2x\ dx=2\int_{-1}^{2} xdx$$
$$=2[\frac{x^{2}}{2}]_{-1}^{2}$$
\)= [x^{2}]_{-1}^{2}\)
$$= [(2)^{2} - (-1)^{2}]$$
$$= [4 - 1] = 3$$ Hence, the value of the given expression is : 3

The bulk density of soil is defined as the mass of dry solidsper unit bulk volume. A high bulk density implies a compact soilwith few pores. Bulk density is an important factor in influencing root development, seedling emergence, and aeration. Let X denotethe bulk density of Pima clay loam. Studies show that X is normally distributed with $$\displaystyle\mu={1.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={0.2}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$.
(a) What is thedensity for X? Sketch a graph of the density function. Indicate onthis graph the probability that X lies between 1.1 and 1.9. Findthis probability.
(b) Find the probability that arandomly selected sample of Pima clay loam will have bulk densityless than $$\displaystyle{0.9}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$.
(c) Would you be surprised if a randomly selected sample of this type of soil has a bulkdensity in excess of $$\displaystyle{2.0}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$? Explain, based on theprobability of this occurring.
(d) What point has the property that only 10% of the soil samples have bulk density this high orhigher?
(e) What is the moment generating function for X?

A box is sliding with a speed of 4.50 m/s on a horizontal surface when, at point P, it encounters a rough section. On the rough section, the coefficient of friction is not constant but starts at .100 at P and increases linerly with distance past P, reaching a value of .600 at 12.5 m past point P. (a) Use the work energy theorem to find how far this box slides before stopping. (b) What is the coefficient of friction at the stopping point? (c) How far would the box have slid iff the friciton coefficient didn't increase, but instead had the constant value of .1?
