An evergreen nursery usually sells a certain type of shrub after 6 years of growth and shaping. The growth rate during those 6 years is approximated by $\frac{dh}{dt}=1.5t+5$ , where t is the time in years and h is the height in centimeters. The seedlings are 12 centimeters tall when planted $(t=0)$ .

Jones figures that the total number of thousands of miles that a used auto can be driven before it would need to be junked is an exponential random variable with parameter

Smith has a used car that he claims has been driven only 10,000 miles.

If Jones purchases the car, what is the probability that she would get at least 20,000 additional miles out of it?

Repeat under the assumption that the lifetime mileage of the car is not exponentially distributed but rather is (in thousands of miles) uniformly distributed over (0, 40).

A tow truck pulls a car that is stuck in the mud, with a force of 2500 N as in Fig P5.27 The tow cable is under tension and therefor pulls downward and to the left on the pin at its upper end. The light pin is held in equilibrium by forces exerted by the two bars A and B. Each bar is a strut that is, each is a bar whose weight is small compared to the forces it exerts, and which exerts forces only through hinge pins at its ends. Each strut exerts a force directed parallel to its length. Determine the force of tension or compression in each strut. Proceed as follows Make a guess as to which way (pushing or pulling ) each force acts on the top pin Draw a free-body diagram of the pin. Use the condition for equilibrium of the pin to translate the free-body diagram into equations. From the equations calculate the forces exerted by struts A and B. If you obtain a positive answer, you correctly guessed the direction of the force. A negative answer means the direction should be reversed, but the absolute value correction should be reversed, but the absolute value correctly gives the magnitude of the force. If a strut pulls of a pin, it is in tension. If it pushes, the strut is in compression. Identify whether each strut is in tension or in compression.

Water stands at a depth H in a large, open tank whose sidewalls are vertical. A hole is made in one of the walls at a depth h below the water surface.

a) at what distance R from the foot of the wall does the emerging stream strike the floor?

b) How far above the bottom of the tank could a second hole be cut so that the stream emerging from it could have the same range as for the first hole?
