Please show appropriate work – no big calculator leaps – except as indicated. Work should
be shown clearly, using correct mathematical notation. Please show enough work on all
problems (unless specified otherwise) so that others could follow your work and do a similar
problem without help. Collaboration is encouraged, but in the end, the work should be your
own.

5. (AP 2011) A cylindrical can of radius 10 millimeters is used to measure rainfall in
Stormville. The can is initially empty, and rain enters the can during a 60-day period. The
height of water in the can is modeled by the function S, where S(t ) is measured in millimeters
and t is measured in days for 0 ≤ t ≤ 60. The rate at which the height of the water is rising in the
can is given by S′(t ) = 2sin(0.03t ) + 1.5. [You may use a calculator on this problem].
(a) According to the model, what is the height of the water in the can at the end of the
day period?
60-
(b) According to the model, what is the average rate of change in the height of water in the
units of measure.
(c) Assuming no evaporation occurs, at what rate is the volume of water in the can
changing at time t = 7 ? Indicate units of measure.
(d) During the same 60-day period, rain on Monsoon Mountain accumulates in a can
identical to the one in Stormville. The height of the water in the can on Monsoon
1
(3t 3  30t 2  330t ) . The
Mountain is modeled by the function M, where M (t ) 
400
height M( t) is measured in millimeters, and t is measured in days for 0 ≤ t ≤ 60.
Let
D(t ) = M′(t ) − S′(t ). Apply the Intermediate Value Theorem to the function D on the
interval 0 ≤ t ≤ 60 to justify that there exists a time t, 0 &lt; t &lt; 60, at which the heights of
water in the two cans are changing at the same rate.
