Definition used:
" The Lagrange multipliers defined as \(\displaystyle\nabla f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}=\lambda\nabla g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}.\) This equation can be expressed as \(\displaystyle{{f}_{{x}}=}\lambda{{g}_{{x}},}{{f}_{{y}}=}\lambda{{g}_{{y}},}{{f}_{{z}}=}\lambda{{g}_{{z}}{\quad\text{and}\quad}} g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={k}\)"
Let the volume of the rectangular box be \(\displaystyle{V}= f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}{y}{z}\ \text{where}\ {x}>{0},{y}>{0},{z}>{0}.\)
Thus, the maximize function \(\displaystyle f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}{y}{z}\) subject to the constraint \(\displaystyle g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}+{2}{y}+{3}{z}={6}.\)
The Lagrange multipliers \(\displaystyle\nabla f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}=\lambda\nabla g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}\) is computed as follows,
\(\displaystyle\nabla f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}=\lambda\nabla g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}\)
Thus, the value of \(\displaystyle\nabla f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}=\lambda\nabla g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}{i}{s}{\left\langle{y}{z},{x}{z},{x}{y}\right\rangle}=\lambda{\left\langle{1},{2},{3}\right\rangle}.\)
By the definition, \(\displaystyle{\left\langle{y}{z},{x}{z},{x}{y}\right\rangle}=\lambda{\left\langle{1},{2},{3}\right\rangle}\) can be expressed as follows,
From the equations (1), (2) and (3),
Consider \(\displaystyle{y}{z}=\frac{{{x}{z}}}{{2}}\) and compute the value of y,
Considder \(\displaystyle\frac{{{x}{z}}}{{2}}=\frac{{{x}{y}}}{{3}}\) and compute the value of z,
Substitute \(\displaystyle{y}=\frac{1}{{2}}{x}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{z}=\frac{2}{{3}}{y}\) in the equation \(\displaystyle g{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}+{2}{y}+{3}{z}={6}\) and obtain required point,
Thus, the values of \(\displaystyle{x}={2},{y}={1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{z}=\frac{2}{{3}}.\)
Substitute \(\displaystyle{x}={2},{y}={1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}{z}=\frac{2}{{3}}\) in the function \(\displaystyle f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}{y}{z}\) and obtain the maximum volume of the rectangle box as follows,
\(\displaystyle f{{\left({x},{y},{z}\right)}}={x}{y}{z} f{{\left({2},{1},\frac{2}{{3}}\right)}}={\left({2}\right)}{\left({1}\right)}{\left(\frac{2}{{3}}\right)}\)
Therefore, the volume of the largest rectangular box is \(\displaystyle\frac{4}{{3}}.\)

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.

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
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.
