PREFACE IN writing this short course, I have been guided by my conviction that it is much more important for the be- ginner to understand clearly what the processes of the Calculus mean, and what it can do for him, than to acquire facility in performing its operations or a wide acquaintance with them. I had much rather that a boy, confronted with a problem, should, after analysing it, be able to say " If I could differentiate (or integrate) this function of x, I could solve the problem " than that he should be able to perform the operation without seeing its bearing on the problem. The book is intended primarily for those who are or will be interested in the applications of the Calculus to Physics and Engineering. I believe that boys, especially on the Science side of a School, could profitably begin the study of the subject at a much earlier age than is usual. I believe, too, that even those who are to be Mathematicians would do well to go through some such course as is here indicated before pro- ceeding to the more formal treatises, for comparatively young students gain by approaching a subject inductively before studying it deductively. Even if they are possessed of mathematical ability, it is good that they should have a thorough comprehension of the goal in particular cases VI PREFACE before undertaking general proofs, and should be reminded by a preliminary course depending on more laborious methods, of the advantage of replacing " mere counting " by mathematical processes. As I have already indicated, no great prominence is given to methods of differentiating and integrating complicated expressions, in fact, x n is the only function whose differential coefficient is required in the first 250 pages. Later, sin a;, cosic, etc., e? and log a; are dealt with, and the Engineer needs little beyond these. Before reaching " ~ ," I have devoted many pages some may think too many to the ideas of rate of change and of the limiting value of the ratio of two continually diminish- ing quantities. Unless the ground is cleared in this way, a boy is apt to begin and continue indefinitely his study of the subject in a state of mental fog. I do not believe that anything is gained by hurrying over the early stages. On the contrary, I believe that the ultimate result of reducing the time spent on them is a very great loss of power. When cc n has been differentiated, the result is applied to problems of maxima and minima, geometrical properties of curves, approximations, etc. Then the inverse problem "Given -~, find y" is discussed, and this leads up to the CLOD Integral Calculus and its application to Areas, Volumes, Work, etc. These should not be looked upon as so many detached problems each requiring its own particular rule, but if the meaning of integration is properly understood, they will all be seen to depend on one general principle. This will explain why I have given so much space to the discussion of a few typical problems ab initio. After this, rules are investigated for differentiating PREFACE Vll sin a;, cosx, tana?, etc., e*, \og e x, products, quotients, etc., and more problems are dealt with of the same nature as before but requiring a knowledge of these rules. Chapters XII. XIV. form a sort of appendix with short notices of the application of the Calculus to the Solution of Equations, Methods of Integration and Polar Co-ordinates. No great amount of previous mathematical knowledge is assumed. A boy is supposed to know his Elementary Algebra and Trigonometry and to have some slight acquaint- ance with the co-ordinate geometry of the straight line. He should be able to write down the equation of a line through a given point with a given gradient and should know the relation between the gradients of perpendicular lines. He is also expected to have had some practice in drawing graphs from their equations and to know what these graphs mean. Many of the illustrations given are arithmetical, algebraical and geometrical, but in addition to these many will be found drawn from the scientific knowledge usually at the command of boys of this age. Several of the examples are intended to lead up to the ideas afterwards presented in the text, and in the more difficult ones, especially in some which will be found in the miscellaneous sets, the boy of mathematical ability will find plenty of scope for his skill in the manipulation of symbols. It would probably be well to omit the section on Points of Inflexion (pp. 127 135) on a first reading It is found there, because there did not seem to be a more convenient place for it. I take this opportunity of thanking Professor Hobson of Cambridge for some notes on the earlier chapters, which he sent to me after seeing the manuscript, but this must not be taken to mean that anything I have written has his sanction. Vlll PREFACE I am very grateful also to Mr A. W. Siddons of Harrow, for some criticisms and suggestions which he made after wading through most of the original manuscript. The subject has been taught here during the last few years to boys of 16 on the lines of this book and I am much indebted to my colleagues who have helped in various ways during the passage of the book through the press. Thanks are also due to Professor Lamb of Manchester for permission to reprint two tables from his "Infinitesimal Calculus," to Professor Ewing, Director of Naval Education, for permission to use questions set to Naval Officers, and to the Controller of His Majesty's Stationery Office for permission to include some questions set at Examinations by the Board of Education and the Civil Service Com- missioners.

To measure the speed of a moving body, we must know the distance it travels in some definite time. The speed is said to be uniform if equal distances are travelled in equal times, however small those equal times may be. Thus if a train has a uniform speed of 60 miles an hour, it will travel 30 miles in every half hour, 10 miles in every 10 mins., 1 mile in every min., 88 ft. in every sec., 8 '8 ft. in every ! sec., and so on, and we could state the speed as 60 miles/hour, or 1 mile/minute, or 88 ft. /sec., etc. We can deduce any one of these expressions for the speed from any one of the relations between distance and time : e.g. 60 miles an hour is 60 x 5280 ft. in 60 x 60 sees. 60 x 5280 ,, or ~n R?T ft - m 1 sec> 60 x 60 or 88 ft. /sec., 8 *8 8*8 ft. in -1 sec. is-^p ft. in 1 sec. or 88 ft./sec., and generally if a body moving with uniform speed travels s ft. o in an interval of t sees., - will have the same value whatever be I M. C. I 2 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I the duration of the interval and at whatever stage of the journey c it be taken, and in this case - ft./sec. is said to be the speed of the body at every instant. 2. Average speed. Suppose a train travels 60 miles in a certain hour, but that we do not know that its speed has been uniform during the hour, we can say that its average speed during the hour is 88 ft./sec., meaning that if it kept up a uniform speed of 88 ft. /sec. for an hour, i.e. travelled 88 feet in every separate second, the distance covered in the hour would be 60 miles, the same as the distance actually covered. Actually it might cover 70 ft. in one second, 90 ft. in another, and so on, provided that the total distance was 60 miles. If a body travels 3 ft. in j sec., we say that its average speed during this quarter of a second is 12 ft./sec., meaning that if a body had a uniform speed of 12 ft./sec., it would in sec. travel 3 ft, the same as the distance actually travelled. The distance travelled in any other quarter of a second would not as a rule be 3 feet, unless the motion were uniform ; suppose for example that in the next quarter of a second the distance travelled were 5 feet, then the average speed during this next quarter of a second would be 20 ft./sec. and during the complete half second 16 ft./sec. Generally, if a body travels s ft. in t sees., its average speed during this interval of t sees, is - ft./sec., and as a rule the value of - will depend on the duration of the t interval and on the stage of the journey at which it is taken. 1-3] SPEED AT AN INSTANT -3 EXERCISES. I. 1. A train leaves Bristol at 4.0 p.m. and arrives at Exeter, 75J miles distant, at 5.55 p.m. Find its average speed (i) in miles per hour, (ii) in feet per secohd. 2. A train travels 40 miles in the first hour, 35 in the second, 45 in the third, 50 in the fourth and 40 in the fifth. Find in miles per hour its average speed for the whole journey. 3. A stone falls 1 ft. in - sec. Find its average speed during this interval (i) in miles per hour, (ii) in yards per minute. 4. A body travels -0035 ins. in -02 of a second. Find in ft./sec. its average speed during this interval. 6. A body travels -00063 ft. in -001 of a second. Find in miles/hour its average speed during this interval. 3. Speed at an instant. Suppose we are studying the motion of some moving body and that we are able to measure the dis- tances it travels in certain small intervals of time after passing some fixed mark. In our first experiment we will suppose that we get the distance travelled in one second. The next experiment we will suppose to be made with improved apparatus which will enable us to find the distance travelled in half a second, and so on, each experiment being a more refined one than its pre- decessor. Tabulate the results of the experiments as follows : Time in sees. Distance in ins. (1) 1 48 1 (2) 2 24 1 (3) 4 12 1 / A\ G * 8 (5) 1 16 3 1-2 4 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I In this case we should probably conclude that the body was moving with a uniform speed of 48 ins./sec. If however the results were (1) 1 48 ( 2 ) 5 21 (3) I 9-75 (4) I 4-69 (5) 1 2-30 it is obvious that the speed is not uniform. What shall we say then is the speed of the body as it passes the fixed point? The average speeds during the intervals used in the different experiments are as shewn in the following table : Interval in sees. Average speed in ins.jsec, (1) 48 (2) \ 42 (3) \ 39 (4) I 37-52 (5) 1 36-80 These results are all different. Now suppose we took the result of the first experiment and assumed that the body moved for the whole second with a uniform speed of 48 ins./sec. and from this calculated how far it would go in ^ sec., we should get 3 ins., which is by no means the same as 2-30 ins., the actual distance travelled. If, however, we used the result of the second experiment, and assumed that the body moved for half a second 3] SPEED AT AN INSTANT 5 with a uniform speed of 42 ins./sec., and calculated from this the distance it would go in y^ sec., we should get 2-625 ins., and in the same way if we assumed uniform speeds of 39 and 37'52 ins./sec., we should get 2-44 and 2-34 ins. respectively. These distances 3, 2'625, 2-44, 2-34 ins. approximate more and more to the true distance 2 -3 ins. If we tried to deduce the distance travelled in ^ sec. we should get a better approxi- Oa mation by using the average speed 36-8 ins. /sec. than by using any of the others, but the result 1*15 ins. would not be correct. Still, if the apparatus at our disposal did not permit us to measure the distance travelled in any shorter period of time than y^ sec., we should content ourselves by saying that the speed of the body as it passed the given point was approximately 36-8 ins./sec. If we could improve our apparatus and measure the distance travelled in ^TWC sec., say -361 ins., we should say that the speed of the body as it passed the given point was still more nearly 36 ! ins./sec. If from this we calculated the distance travelled in any shorter interval, say sec., our result -036 1 ins. would be nearer the truth than a result obtained by using any of the other average speeds. But however refined our measurements, we could never by a calculation of this kind obtain the speed of the body as it passed the given point. We calculate each time the average speed of the body during a short interval following the instant in question and the effect of improving our apparatus is that we are able to shorten the interval for which the average speed is calculated. We cannot say that the body moves for any interval of time, however short, with uniform speed, but the shorter the interval of time for which we make this assumption the smaller is the error made in the calculated distance for a still shorter interval. CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I EXERCISES. U. 1. Three men A, B, C begin to observe the motion of a train just as it reaches a quarter-mile post. A finds that in the next second it goes 44 ft., B that it takes 4| sees, for the whole train (210 ft. long) to pass him, C that it takes 26 sees, to reach the next quarter-mile post. Find in ft./sec. what each would obtain for the average speed of the train. What is the best available result for the speed of the train as it passes the first post ? If each assumes that the speed he obtains is uniform over the time cousidered, and uses it to calculate the distance travelled by the train in the next half second after leaving the post, what would their results be, and which would be nearest to the truth?

What is approximately the speed of M when / AOP = 60? 4. A point P starts from A and moves round a circle of radius 100 cms. with uniform speed, making a complete revolution in 1 min.'

What is the average speed (cms./sec.) of T as L AOP increases (i) from 55 to 60, (ii) from 60 to 65, (iii) from 57 to 60, (iv) from 60 to 63, (v) from 59 to 60, (vi) from 60 to 61 ? What is approximately the speed of T when L AOP = 60? 4. Now suppose the distance travelled in a given time is not determined by experiment but given by an algebraical formula, say s = 5 + 3t + 2t3, s ft. being the distance from some fixed point at the end of t sees, measured from some fixed instant, and suppose we want the speed at the end of 4 sees. If in the formula we put t = 4, we get s = 145 ; i.e. the distance from the fixed point at the end of 4 sees, from the fixed instant is 145 ft. Similarly the distance from the fixed point at the end of 5 sees, from the fixed instant is 270 ft. Reckoning from the end of the fourth second, i.e. from the instant at which we are to find the speed, we see that the distance travelled in the next second is 125 ft. and the average speed during this second is 125 ft. /sec. Now calculate the distance travelled in 4^- sees, from the beginning. It is 200f ft., and the distance described in the -~ sec. after the end of the fourth second is 55f ft. .'. the average speed during this ^ sec. is 55^-=-- or 111^ ft. /sec.

To make quite sure of this let us consider th'e distance travelled in (4 + h) sees., where h can eventually be as small a fraction as we please. The distance is 5 + 3 (4 + h) + 2 (4 + h) 3 ft. or 145 + 99A + 24& 2 + 2A ft, i.e. the distance travelled in the interval h sees, after the end of the fourth second is (99A + 24A 2 + 2A 3 ) ft. .'. the average speed during this interval is 99A+24/i 2 +2A 3 r or (99 + 24A + 2A 2 ) ft. /sec. [Notice that this result includes all the results in the table, e.g. if we put h= -1 we get 99 + 2-4 + -02 or 101-42.] As h is made smaller and smaller (247i + 2/i 2 ) becomes smaller and smaller and can be made as small as we please if h be made small enough. In other words the average speed during the interval h can be made as near to 99 ft./sec. as we please if we take the interval short enough. 4] SPEED AT AN INSTANT 9 This, so to speak, ideal speed of 99 ft./sec. is called the speed of the body at the end of 4 sees. As this is an extremely important idea, it may be well to summarise the steps by which we arrived at our result. We found the distance travelled by the body in a short interval immediately following the end of the fourth second and calculated the average speed during this interval. We then did the same thing with a shorter interval, then with a shorter, and so on, and found that our average speeds continually approached 99 ft./sec. and that if we took our interval short enough, we could make the average speed come as near to 99 ft./sec. as we wished. This limiting value of the average speed which can be approached as nearly as we please by taking the interval short enough, is called the speed of the body at the end of 4 sees. EXERCISES. III. 1. If = 5 + 3f + 2t 3 , find the average speed during the interval A sees, which immediately precedes the end of the fourth second. Shew that it is less than 99 ft./sec., continually approaches 99 ft./sec. as h is made smaller and can be brought as near to 99 ft./sec. as we please if we make h small enough. Also find the average speed during the interval of h seconds which extends from ^ sees, before to - sees, after the end of the fourth second, and -j a shew that this average speed also can be brought as near to 99 ft./sec. as we please if we make h small enough. 2. If s = 5t + 3t 2 find the distances travelled in 3, 4, 3'5, 3-2, 3-1, 3 - 01, 3'001 sees, from the beginning. Hence find the average speeds during the intervals 1, -5, -2, -1, -01, -001 sees, immediately following the end of the third second. Also find the distance travelled in (3 + h) sees, and the average speed during the interval h sees, after the end of the third second. What is the speed at the end of the third second ? 10 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I Find also the average speed during (i) the interval of h seconds immediately preceding the end of the third second, (ii) during the interval of h seconds which extends from the end of ( 3 - - j sees, to the end of 3 + o ) secs -> (iii) during the interval between the end of (3-j) sees, and ( the end of (3 + ) sees., and shew in each case that by making the interval short enough we can bring the average speed as near as we please to 23 ft./sec. 3. In Qu. 2 find (i) the average speed during the fourth second, (ii) the speeds at the end of 3, 4, 3 sees., (iii) the mean (half the sum) of the speeds at the end of 3 and 4 sees. 4. If s S + 9t 3 , find (i) the average speed during the fourth second, (ii) the speed at the end of 3J sees., (iii) the mean of the speeds at the end of 3 and 4 sees. 6. If s = t*-'6t + 5, find the distance gone in 4 sees, and in (4 + /<) sees. Hence get the speed at the end of the fourth second. 5. From Exs. 1 and 2 we see that the speed at a given instant may be deduced from the average speed during a short interval, (i) immediately following, or (ii) immediately preceding, or (iii) including, the instant in question and may be defined as that speed which any of these average speeds can be made to approach as nearly as we please if the interval be made short enough. See 28. Rate of Increase. 6. The question of speed might be presented somewhat differently, as shewn in the following examples. Suppose a train to travel uniformly between two stations distant 15 and 17 miles from the terminus, and to pass those stations at 5.20 and 5.23. Let s feet be the distance of the train from some fixed point of the path, say the terminus, at the end of t sees, from some fixed instant, say 5 o'clock. 5-8 J RATE OF INCREASE 11 Then as t increases from 20 x 60 to 23 x 60 a 15 x 5280 to 17 x 5280, i.e. as t increases by 3 x 60, s increases by 2 x 5280, 1 2x528Q or 582 3x60 *' or 5S is the rate of increase of s per unit increase of t. [With our earlier terminology we should say the speed was 58| ft/sec.] , Increase in a Notice that this 58| is = . Increase in t 7. It will avoid confusion if we remember in cases like this where we are dealing with quantities of two different kinds, viz. : distance and time, that a and t are numbers, s being the number of feet in the distance and t the number of seconds in the time. Increase in s When we say T : - = 58|, we are stating, not that Increase in t 58| is the result of dividing 2 x 5280 feet by 3 x 60 seconds, but that it is the result of dividing 2 x 5280 by 3 x 60; 2 x 5280 being the number of feet and 3 x 60 the number of seconds. The statement in 2 that if a body travels s feet in t seconds o its average speed during the interval is - ft. /sec. is equivalent to this : If the number of feet in the distance travelled be divided by the number of seconds in the time taken, the resulting number is the number of ft./sec. in the average speed. , Increase in s . 8. If the motion is not unitorm. i.e. it the ratio = - : - is Increase in t not constant, as in 4, we might state our results as follows: When I is increased by -5, a is increased by 55'75. Increase in a 55*75 -,-,-, Kr , The ratio = -. = = = 111-50, Increase in t 'O 12 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I and we say that 111-50 is the average rate of increase of s per unit increase of t between t = 4 and t = 4-5; for if the body were moving uniformly in such a way that an increase of -5 in t produced an increase of 55-75 in s, then 1 would produce 111-50 in s. Similarly 101-42 is the average rate of increase of s per unit increase of t between t= 4 and t = 4-1, for if s were increased by 10-142 in every -1 sec. s would be increased by 101 '42 in 1 sec. and so on. 99 + 24A + 2h 2 is the average rate of increase of s per unit increase of t between t= 4 and t = 4 + h and 99 is said to be the rate of increase of s per unit increase of t when t = 4. Or we might say 111-50 is the average rate of increase of s with respect to t between t = 4 and t = 4-5, meaning that as t increases from 4 to 4*5, s increases 111-50 times as much, and 99 is the rate of increase of s with respect to t when t = 4, this 99 being the number towards which our succession of average rates continually tends. 9. Suppose the formula connecting s and t to be s = 20t - 2t 2 , and to fix our ideas we will suppose that s is measured to the right. If < = 4, 8 = 4:8: if t = 4: + h, s = 48 + 4A-2A 2 and proceeding as before we find that the speed at the end of 4 seconds is 4 ft./sec. to the right. If <=5, s = 50: if t = 5+h, * = 50-2A 2 . If we go through the usual steps we say that in the interval of A seconds which follows the end of the 5th second, the body moves - 2k" 2 ft. to the right and its average speed in the interval is 2h ft./sec. The significance of the negative sign is easily seen. At the end of 5 seconds, the distance of the body to the right of the 8-10] RATE OF INCREASE 13 starting point is 50 feet: at the end of (5 + h) seconds it is (50 2h?) ft., i.e. in the interval of h sees, the body has moved 2& 2 ft. to the left and the average speed is 2h ft./sec. to the left. If t 5 h, s = 50 2/i 2 and in the interval h sees, before the end of the 5th second, the body has moved 2A 2 ft. to the right and its average speed is 2h ft./sec. to the right. This average speed can be made as small as we like if h is made small enough, i.e. if the interval be made short enough. During any interval, however short, immediately before the end of the 5th second the body is moving to the right and during any interval however small immediately after the end of the 5th second, it is moving to the left and in each case the average speed during the interval can be made as small as we please if we make the interval short enough. We say then, that at the end of 5 seconds the speed of the body is zero and that the direction of motion changes at the end of 5 seconds. 10. If t = 7, s = 42 : if t = 7 + h, s = 42 - 8h - 2h\ Proceeding as before we say that in the interval of h seconds following the end of the 7th second the body moves 8A 2h? ft. to the right and its average speed in that direction is ( 8 2/t) ft./sec. and the speed at the end of 7 sees, is - 8 ft./sec. The negative sign is again easily explained. At the end of 7 sees, the body is 42 ft. to the right of the starting point. At the end of (7 + h) sees, it is 42 8h 2A 2 ft. to the right, i.e. in the interval of h sees, it has moved (8h + 2h 2 ) ft. to the left, the average speed in this direction being (8 + 2h) ft./sec. and the speed at the end of 7 sees, being 8 ft./sec. to the left. A negative speed is thus seen to indicate that the body is moving in the opposite direction to that in which s is measured. Or we might say As t increases from 7 to 7 +/*, s changes from 42 to 42 8h 2h\ 14. CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I Or, as t increases by h, s increases by Sh - 1h* or decreases by Sh + 2h?, and the average rate of increase of s per unit increase of t is - 8 - 2h, or the average rate of decrease of s per unit increase of t is 8 + 2h. These two statements mean the same thing; in fact, to say that the rate of increase of s with respect to t is negative simply means that s is decreasing as t is increasing. 11. Function. When two quantities are connected in such a way that to each value of the first there corresponds a definite value of the second, the second quantity is said to be a function of the first, e.g. in the case considered in 4, s is a function of t the time being given we can calculate the distance of the body from the fixed point. The relation between s and t is shewn in the form of an equation s = 5 + St + 2t 3 , [In 3 the relation was exhibited by means of a table of pairs of corresponding values.] and we have seen how to find (i) The average rate of increase of s per unit increase of t or the average rate of increase of s with respect to t between two r~ Ti .

The area of a square is a function of the length of the side. If A sq. ins. is the area of a square whose side is x ins. A = x 2 . Now suppose we have a square plate whose side is 1" and that it is expanding under the action of heat so that it remains a square. The original area is 1 sq. in., i.e. the original value of A= 1. If the side be increased to 1*1" the area increases to 1*21 ins., i.e. if x be increased by !, A is increased by -21, Increase in A -21 T-- - = =2-1 (see 7), Increase in a; '1 and this is the average rate of increase of A per unit increase of x between x = 1 and x= I'l. . Similarly if the side be increased from 1" to 1-001" the area is increased from 1 sq. in. to 1 '002001 sq. ins., and the average rate of increase of A per unit increase of x between x = 1 and x =1-001 is 2-001. If the increase in the side be made smaller and smaller this average rate of increase can be brought as near to 2 as we please, for if x is increased from 1 to 1 + h, A is increased from 1 to 1 + 2h + h? Increase in A 2h + h? . and : = j - 2 + h, increase in a? h which can be made as near to 2 as we please if h is made small enough. And we say that when x = 1, the rate of increase of A per unit increase of x, or the rate of increase of A with respect to x, is 2. 13. If the plate be supposed to be cooling and contracting we shall find that if x is diminished by '1, A is diminished by -19, or we might say 16 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I if x is increased by *1, A is increased by '19, so that or we might say Decrease in A '19 Decrease in a? '1 Increase in A '19 = 1-9. and Increase in a? ! Similarly if x changes from 1 to 1 - h A 1 to 1 - 2h + . Decrease in A 2A A 2 or Decrease in a; h Increase in A 2k + h? = 2-* Increase in a? h and as before, when x = 1, the rate of increase of A with respect to x is 2. 14. It thus appears that if the rate of increase of one quantity with respect to another is positive, the two quantities are increasing or decreasing together, but if the rate is negative, one is increasing while the other is decreasing. 15. The pressure of a given mass of gas at constant tempera- ture is a function of the volume. Let V c. ins. denote the volume of a given mass of gas and p Ibs. per sq. in. its pressure, and suppose the following table given P V 30 40 40 30 48 25 50 24 i.e. As V decreases from 40 to 24, p increases from 30 to 50, Increase of p 20 5 Decrease of V 16 ~ 4* 13-16] RATE OF INCREASE 17 or - is the average rate of increase of p per unit decrease of V between V = 40 and V = 24. Similarly g v is the average rate of increase of p per unit decrease of V 5 o or = is the average rate of increase of p with respect to V D between V = 30 and V = 25. 16. Now suppose the relation between p and V given by the formula pM = 1 200. We can by calculation form the following table : V 40 45 42 41 40-5 40 + 7* 1200 p 30 26-67 28-57 29-27 29-63 40 + /i and the average rates of increase of p with respect to V between (i) V = 40 and V = 45 (ii) V = 40 and V = 42 (iii) V =-. 40 and V = 41 (iv) V = 40 and V = 40-5 J will be found to be respectively '67, *71, *73, '74 and what we call the rate of increase of p with respect to V when V = 40 is the quantity towards which this succession of numbers continually tends as the increase in V is made smaller. To make quite certain what this limit is, find the average rate of increase of p with respect to V between V = 40 and 30 V = 40 + h. It is JJT j- ; and by making h small enough we 30 can make this as near or -75 as we like. 40 Thus -75 is the rate at which p is increasing with respect to v when v = 40.

PM, Q.N are the ordinates of P, Q and PR is parallel to OX. The A PQR has always the same shape wherever we take RQ P and Q. In particular the ratio is constant. PR This ratio is called the gradient of the line. It is the tangent of the angle RPQ or the tangent of the angle which KL makes with OX. 22 20 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. 1 18. We may suppose that we pass from P to Q by two steps, (i) a horizontal step PR, (ii) a vertical step RQ. The gradient is Fig. 2. the ratio of the vertical step to the horizontal step, and is the same whatever the lengih of the horizontal step and from whatever point we start. Following the usual convention we call a horizontal step positive if it is to the right and a vertical step positive if it is upwards; so that the gradient is positive if both steps are positive or both negative, and the gradient is negative if the steps are of opposite signs. e.g. in Fig. 2 Horizontal step P^ = + 10, Vertical step RjQj = + 5, >> P-s^2 = ~^ : > ;> n R a Q 3 = 2, and the gradient of the line is + jr . 18, 19] UNIFORM GRADIENT 21 In Fig. 3 Horizontal step P^ = + 10, Vertical step R J Q 1 = - 15, f22 = ~ 4, II 11 RjQa = + 6, 3 and the gradient of the line is ^ . Fig. 3. 19. Expressing this in the language of coordinates we maj say that if (a^) (x.gj^) be the coordinates of any two points on the line, the gradient is this being a fraction which has the #2 a a same value whatever the coordinates of the points chosen. e.g. in Fig. 2 coordinates of P l are (10, 10) and of QI (20, 15), 15-10 1 and gradient = ^- lo =2 ; coordinates of P 2 are ( 2, 4) and of Q 2 ( 6, 2), 2-4 1 and gradient __=-. 22 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. 1 20. Another way of looking at the question is as follows : In Fig. 2 if we take a horizontal step + 1 [P 3 R 3 ], the vertical step is +^r [R 3 Q 3 ] ; so that we may say that the gradient gives 2i the vertical ascent per unit length of horizontal advance, or the increase of y per unit increase of x. 21. Example. Shew that with our definition the gradient of y = mx + n is m. Let (#1^1) (#22/2) be any two points on the line, .'. 2/ 2 = mx 2 + n > and 2/1= I m&\ + n ; ' 2/2 - /i = * 0*2 - i), 3/2 &! or m is the gradient of the line. 22. Average gradient. If P, Q bo two points on a path RQ which is not straight as in Fig. 4, is called the average PR gradient of the path between P and Q; e.g. the average /> gradient between P and Q is ^. This is the gradient of the line y PQ, and we may say that if we move from P along the path so as to make a horizontal step PR, the vertical step RQ is the same as if we had moved along the line PQ which has a uniform gradient <r . y The average gradient will depend on the length of the horizontal step and on the point from which we start, e.g. the 1 fi average gradient between P and Qj is y^r and between P 2 and Qj i y .. . 9-5 20-23] AVERAGE GRADIENT 23 Generally if (x^) (#2^2) ^ e the coordinates of two points P, Q on a curve the average gradient between P and Q is and this will be different for different positions of P and Q, i.e. for different values of the coordinates. o/r 4 - rb- trr -5 Fig. 4.

This is tan RjPQj or tan XK X P or the tangent of the angle which PQ a makes with OX and is called the gradient of the chord PQj. [.Notice. If PR 2 = 1 and RaSj be drawn parallel to OY meeting PQj in Su then R 2 Sj = 4.] Now suppose the line PQj to rotate about P until it cuts the curve in Q 2 corresponding to x = 2. We shall get in an exactly similar way tan R 2 PQ 2 or tan XK 2 P or the gradient of PG^ or the average rate of increase of y per unit increase of x between x = 1 and x = 2 is j or 3. Let the line continue to rotate and cut the curve successively in Q 3 , 04, Q 5 , Qg corresponding to a3 = l'4, 1'2, I'l, I'Ol, and we get Gradient of PQ 3 or average rate of increase of y per unit increase of x between x 1 and x = 1*4 is 2-4. Gradient of PQ 4 or average rate of increase of y per unit increase of x between a; 1 and x= 1*2 is 2-2. Gradient of PQ 5 or average rate of increase of y per unit increase of x between x = 1 and x = 1 ! is 2-1. Gradient of PG^ or average rate of increase of y per unit increase of x between x 1 and x = 1-01 is 2-01. If we continue this process making the increase in x and therefore at the same time the increase in y smaller and smaller or bringing the point Q nearer and nearer to P, the gradient of the rotating line comes gradually nearer to 2, is always greater than 2, but can be made as near to 2 as we please by bringing Q near enough to P. 26 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I To make quite sure of this let the line cut the curve in Q for which x = 1 + h and /. y = 1 + 2A + A 9 (Fig. 6). Increase in y 2h + h 2 Then gradient of PQ = ^- - = 5- = 2 + h, Increase in a; n and by making h small enough we can make this as near 2 as we like. 2h-h 2 Fig. 6. If we continue the rotation, the line will cut the curve again on the other side of P, say in a point for which x = 1 h and (Fig. 7). Then gradient of PQ = Decrease in y 2A - h? = 2-A, Decrease in a; A i.e. the gradient of a chord joining P to a point Q for which x < 1 is less than 2, but can be made as near to 2 as we like, by bringing Q near enough to P. Thus if a chord through P cut the curve in a point to the right of P, however near to P, its gradient > 2 ; if the chord cut the curve in a poiut to the left of P, its gradient < 2 but in either case the gradient can be made as near to 2 as we please by bringing the second point near enough to P. The gradient of the curve at P is said to be 2. It is the same thing that we have previously called the rate of increase of y per unit increase of x t when x=l. 23-25] GRADIENT AT A POINT 27 24. The line through P (PT) whose gradient is 2 is called the tangent at P. This line does not cut the curve again in a point near P, for if it did its gradient would not be 2. In fact PT is not one of the series of chords PQ 15 PQ 2 , PQ 3 , etc. for we have seen that none of these chords has a gradient 2, but by bringing Q near enough to P we can bring PQ as near to coincidence with PT as we like, i.e. we can make the angle TPQ as small as we like. This is expressed shortly by saying that the tangent PT is the limiting form of the chord PQ when Q is brought indefinitely near to P. If PT (Fig. 8) is the tangent at P and PR = 1 then if RT be drawn parallel to OY RT = 2. Fig. 8. 25. In these figures we have taken the same scale along both axes and what we have called the gradient of a line is the tangent of the angle which it makes with OX. 28 CALCULUS FOB BEGINNERS [CH. I .

Thus gradient = - = 4 as before but now 4 is not tan RjPQj in Fig. 9. It is the tangent of the angle that we should get in place of RjPQj if we altered the scales so that the oMinit and the y-unit were of the same length, i.e. it is tan R 1 PQ 1 in Fig. 5. 25] GRADIENT 29 We may look upon Fig. 9 as a deformed copy of Fig. 5 and consider either that horizontal distances are correctly represented and vertical distances shortened in the ratio 1 to 2 or that vertical distances are correctly represented and horizontal distances lengthened in the ratio 2 to 1.

In curves with which we shall deal, the limiting position of the chord PQ when Q is brought indefinitely near to P will be the same on whichever side of P we take Q, and will be the Fig. 10. same as the limiting position of the chord RS (P lying between R and S) when R and S are each brought indefinitely near to P.

If one quantity be a function of another, the relation may be shewn analytically by an equation or geometrically by a graph. e.g. in 4 a is a function of t, this fact being expressed in the form of an equation s = 5 + 3t + 2t 3 . This relation may be exhibited graphically. In Fig. 13, the portion of the graph between t = 3 and t = 5 is shewn, P, Q 1? GLj, Q 3 being the points on the graph corresponding to* = 4, 6, 4-5, 4-2. The number of units of length in F^Qj is the increase in s as t increases from 4 to 5 [or it is the number of feet travelled between the ends of the 4th and 5th seconds]. The increase in t is the number of units of length in PR lf Increase in s Thus = ; or what we have called the average rate Increase in t of increase of s with respect to t between t = 4 and t = 5 is the gradient of the chord PQ^ Similarly the gradients of PQ 2 and PQ 3 give the average rates of increase of s with respect to t between t = 4 and t = 4'5 and between t = 4 and t = 4*2. The limit to which this average rate of increase of with respect to t tends as the increase of t is diminished more and more, or what we have called the rate of increase of s with respect to t when t = 4 is the limit to which the gradient of the chord PQ tends as Q is brought nearer and nearer to P, i.e. the gradient of the curve at P. In this particular case, then, when the space-time graph is drawn, the gradient of the curve at any point gives the speed at the instant corresponding to that point. Similarly if the speed-time graph is drawn, the gradient of the curve at any point gives the acceleration at the instant corresponding to that point. M. C. 3 34 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

The gradient of the curve at P is the rate of increase of p with respect to v when v = 40. 27, 28] APPARENT EXCEPTION 35 28. There are cases in which the statement in 5 appears not to be true. e.g., suppose a marble falls vertically from a height of 36 feet. It strikes the ground with a speed of 48 ft./sec., and will rebound with reduced speed, say 40 ft./sec. Fig. 15 is the space-time graph, the abscissae representing the number of seconds from the instant when it begins to fall and the ordinates the height above the ground in feet. Fig. 15. The speed 48 ft. /sec. is the limit of the average speed taken over a short interval preceding the instant when it strikes the ground, and the speed 40 ft./sec. is the limit of the average speed taken over a short interval following the instant when it leaves the ground. 32 36 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. I If we take these two instants to be the same, we seem to have two different gradients at A, or in other words to have two different speeds at the instant of impact according as we consider the limit of the average speed over a short interval preceding or over a short interval following the instant. Fig. 16. 28, 29] RATE OF INCREASE AS GRADIENT 37 As a matter of fact the two instants are not the same and the marble is in contact with the ground for some short time during which there is compression followed by recovery. Suppose for instance that the time of contact is T ^ 7 sec. Fig. 16 shews roughly what the true space-time graph is like. It is a portion of the graph, the horizontal and vertical scales being each magnified 100 times as compared with Fig. 15. A corresponds to the instant when the marble strikes the ground and B to the instant when it leaves the ground. It will now be seen that the statement in 5 still applies to the speeds at the instants corresponding to A and B. EXERCISES. VI. 1.

Get the results of Exs. TV. 5, p. 18, graphically. 29. The processes by which we arrived at our results in the preceding illustrations were in principle the same. In finding the speed of a moving body at a given instant, we calculated the average speed during a short interval of time starting from the instant in question. We then found that as the interval over which the average speed was calculated was made shorter and shorter, the average speed continually approached some definite speed from which we could make it 38 CALCULUS FOB BEGINNERS [CH. I differ by as little as we pleased by making the interval short enough. This speed we called the speed of the body at the given instant. In finding the gradient of a curve at a given point we calculated the gradient of a line passing through the given point and cutting the curve again in a neighbouring point. We then found that as the neighbouring point was moved nearer and nearer to the given point, this gradient continually approached some definite value from which we could make it differ by as little as we pleased by making the points close enough together. This value we called the gradient of the curve at the given point. In finding the rate at which y is changing with respect to x for a given, value of x, we made a small change in x, calculated the corresponding change in y and found the ratio of the change in y to the change in x. We then found that as the change in x was made smaller and smaller, this ratio continually approached some definite value from which we could make it differ by as little as we pleased by making the change in x small enough. This value we called the rate at which y was changing with respect to x for the given value of x. 30. Our final result was in each case obtained by finding the ratio of two numbers each of which was supposed to become less than any assigned number however small. Now it might at first sight appear that if two quantities are constantly decreasing they must become more and more nearly equal. This is because we have a wrong idea of the test of approximate equality ; we think the two quantities must approach to equality because their difference becomes smaller and smaller. In estimating whether two quantities are nearly equal or not, we must look not merely at the difference between them, but at the ratio which this difference bears to the quantities compared. For example, two lengths of 3 and 4 inches are not so nearly equal as two lengths of 100 and 101 inches, for though the actual difference is the same in both cases, viz. : 1 inch, this difference 29, 30] TEST OF APPROXIMATE EQUALITY 39 is -^ of the smaller length in the first case, but only ^7 of the smaller length in the second case. Lengths of 1000 and 1003 inches are still nearer to equality, for though the actual difference is 3" and therefore greater than the difference in either of the other two cases, this difference is only 1fif)ft of the smaller length, and 3 J_ 1000 < 100* The point is that there are different standards of size in the three cases. The same difference of length is of less importance when we are dealing with 1000 inches than when we are dealing with only 3 or 4. An error of 1 foot made in measuring the length of a room would be considerable, but the same error made in finding the height of a mountain would be of very little account. A loss of 200 would be serious for a man with an income of 300, but of little moment to a man with an income of 100,000. An error of 10 million miles in the Sun's distance (about 90 millions of miles) would be considerable, but the same error would be inappreciable in the distance of Sirius (more than 500,000 times that of the Sun). A carpenter would neglect an error of ^ of an inch, in fact he would not detect it, but in cases where it was necessary to work to -. nnnn of an inch, it would be a gross error. We have no right to say that all microscopic creatures are of the same length, because they are all so small as to be invisible to the naked eye. In comparing two such creatures, we must, so to speak, think microscopically, i.e. use a microscopic standard of length. It is just as true that a creature ^7; of a millimetre 40 CALCULUS FOE BEGINNERS [CH. I in length is twice as long as a creature r-^r of a millimetre in length as that a man 6 ft. in height is twice as high as a child of 3 ft. in height To say that the difference between two quantities is great or small is meaningless. The terms are purely relative and both may be used of the same quantity in different cases. The important thing is the ratio of the difference to the quantities compared. The test of approximate equality might be put in another way : 4 -l-3333 101 -1-01 1003 _1. OS 3~ 33 -' TOO" 01 ' 1000- 3 ' and we say that the last pair of numbers are more nearly equal than either of the other pairs, because their ratio is nearer to 1 than eillier of the other ratios.

We shall now give a few geometrical illustrations to shew that if x and y are two quantities which continually decrease towards zero and become zero (or vanish) together, the ratio of a: to y may (1) increase continually, i.e. it may be greater after a decrease than it was before, still greater after a further decrease and so on, becoming greater than any number that can 30-32] RATIO OF CONTINUALLY DIMINISHING QUANTITIES 41 be named, however large, if the decrease in x and y be carried far enough ; or (2) decrease continually, i.e. it may be less after a decrease than it was before, still less after a further decrease and so on, becoming less than any fraction that can be named, however small, if the decrease in x and y be carried far enough ; or (3) increase or decrease towards a limit, i.e. con- tinually approach some value which it never reaches, but to which it can be brought as near as we like if the decrease of x and y be carried far enough ; or (4) always remain the same. 32.

PM is perpendicular to OA and AP is produced to meet OB produced in Q. As P approaches A, PM and MA both diminish without limit, i.e. assign any length however small, we can find a position of P so that PM or MA shall be less than that length. If we sup- pose P to be at A, there is no triangle PMA at all, or as we may put it, PM and MA vanish together, but we have no right to say that PM and MA are all the time tending to become equal.

(3) In Fig. 18, OA is a fixed radius of a circle, centre O. P, Q. are two points on the cir- cumference, so that Q is the raid- point of the arc AP; PM, QN are perpendicular to OA. As P approaches A, Q ap- proaches A, and AM, AN both diminish without limit. If we suppose P to have arrived at A, Q will also be at A, and AM, AN will have ceased to exist. But we must not say that AM, AN are all the time tending to equality. Call L AOQ 0, then L AOP = 20. If the radius of the circle be r, AN=r(l-cos0) Fig. 18.

The lengths PM, MA considered in 32 can be supposed to go on decreasing for ever without actually disappearing and it has PM been shewn that during the motion of P towards A, will MA increase without limit. CHAPTEE II DIFFERENTIATION FROM FIRST PRINCIPLES 38. WE shall now go through some of the investigations of Chapter I in a slightly different manner, using the notation of the subject. 39. We have s = 5 + 3t -f 2 3 , giving the distance s feet travelled in t seconds. If we take a slightly greater value of t, say t + At, we shall obtain a slightly different value of s, say s + As. [A is merely shorthand for " an ' increment ' or ' increase ' in the value of t," A being the Greek equivalent of capital D. A by itself means nothing, and A2 must be considered as one symbol; in fact, Ai takes the place of A in 4.] There will be the same relation between (s + As) and (t + A<) as between s and t ; i.e. s + As = 5 + 3 (t + A<) + 2 (t + A<) 3 = 5 + 3* + 2^ + (3 + 6 2 ) A< + Qt (A) 3 -f 2 (A*) 8 , .*. As = (3 + W) A* + Qt (A) 2 + 2 (A<) 3 . This gives the extra distance travelled in the extra interval of time A. 48 CALCULUS FOB BEGINNERS [CH.

As [See table in 4 where the third column gives for LA 6 different values of AZ when t = 4 and in this case 3 + Qt" 2 = 99.] In other words, the average speed during a small interval A following the end of t seconds is approximately (3 + 6^ 2 ) ft./sec. and this is more nearly true, the shorter we make the interval A& e.g. if we want approximately the distance described my^th of a second after the end of the 3rd second we have As = (3 + 6 2 ) A approximately, meaning that if A be small the distance described in A2 seconds immediately following the end of t seconds is nearly (3 + 6 2 ) At feet. Put t = 3 and A=y^ and we have approximately as the 57 distance required in our special case, yr-- or -57 ft. [Shew that the distance is really -571802 ft.] This gives an error of about '3 / o . If we used the formula to give the distance in ycnnr sec. we should get '057 ft. instead of -057018002 ft., an error of about 03 / an d so on. ds (iii) -j- = 3 + 6f 2 is accurately true. It is in fact a convenient of* As way of saying that the unattainable limit which is trying to reach is 3 -t- 6^, or - r stands for the ideal value which -~ is at t\t striving to attain. M. c. 4 50 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

The fractional At ds form -T7 is retained merely to remind us of the fraction dt of which it is the limiting value. 42. It is a common error to say that -r- is the value of - dt A< when As and A are each zero. If this statement be examined, it will be seen to have no meaning. As Let us go back to the stage at which was obtained. ttv We had As = (3 + 6* 2 ) A + 6t . (A*) 2 + 2 . (A<) 3 . We then divided both sides of the equation by A. Now if A = we have no right to do this. [It is certainly true that 8x0 = 3x0 but we cannot divide both sides by and deduce 8 = 3. Similarly if a;xO = 7/xOwe cannot conclude that x =y, though if x x T^= y x y^ it is true that x = y.] We should in fact be trying to estimate the speed of the body from the fact that it had travelled feet in sees. ds 41-44] MEANING OF -7- 51 43. We have found that the speed at the end of t seconds is (3-J-6* 2 ) ft/sec. The result obtained in 4 is merely a particular case of this, for when = 4, 3 +6f 2 = 99 and our formula enables us to write down the speed at any instant, e.g. to get the speed at the end of 10 seconds, put t- 10 and we get 603 ft. /sec.

Suppose for example the side increases from 3 to 3-02 ins. the area increases approximately by *12 sq. ins. Actually the increase is "1204 sq. in.

Taking again the special case when x = 3, ~ = 6, this might be stated thus : ux When x = 3, the rate at which y is increasing compared with x is 6, or the x-rate of increase of y is 6, or the rate of increase of y per unit increase of x is 6. 54 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

II we draw a chord through P cutting the curve in a point Q as near to P as we please, the gradient of this chord will never be exactly 2x, but can be made as near to 2x as we please if we bring Q /\ 1 1 near enough to P. For instance if x = 3, ^ = 6 nearly, i.e. the Ax gradient of a chord joining (3, 9) to a neighbouring point on the curve is nearly 6 and becomes nearer to 6 the closer this neighbouring point is to (3, 9). (iii) -~ = 2o; is accurately true and is merely a convenient dx A?/ way of saying that the unattainable limit which 2 is trying to reach is 2x. In fact 2x is the gradient of a line through P towards which the chord PQ is continually tending as Q approaches P, but with which it can never be made to coincide however near Q is to P. This line towards which PQ continually tends is called the tangent at P. dv Thus -^ gives the gradient of the tangent to the curve at P, or as it is sometimes called, the gradient of the curve at P. dv 56. The result ~ = 2x may be looked upon as a QiZ formula giving the gradient at any point of the curve. Thus, if 05 = 3, -^=6, i.e. the gradient of the curve at the point (3, 9) is 6. 57. Notice that although ~ is not the gradient of any ctx chord through P however near the other end of the chord may be to p, yet it is the gradient of an actual line through P, namely the line which we call the tangent to the curve at P. 58. We can now see better the significance of the approxi- mation in (ii). 55-59] dy -f- AS GRADIENT dx 61 Let P be the point (3, 9) and let Q be a point on the curve near to P. (Fig. 24.) Let PT the tangent at P cut QR in Q'. Then the statement is that the gradient of PQ is nearly 6, in RO RQ' other words is nearly 6 ; but since - = 6, this is equivalent RP RP to saying that RQ is nearly the same as RQ'. e.g. suppose PR = '02 then Q is the point (3-02, 9-1204). /. RQ= -1204 and RQ' = 6 x-02 = -12. Fig. 24. The error in taking RQ = RQ' is about ^ / . o If PR = -001 then Q is the point (3-001, 9-006001). .'. RQ = -006001 and RQ' = 6 x -001 = -006. The error is about -^ / o . 59. A caution similar to that issued in 41 applies here also, dy and dx have no separate meanings : they do not stand for small changes in length, for we have seen that however small the increments in x and y are supposed to be, their ratio is never exactly 2x. "We must not say that is the value of ^ when Aa; and dx AOJ Ay Ay are each zero. The whole process by which we obtained ~ 62 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. II becomes unintelligible if we imagine affairs pushed so to speak to the limit. The whole argument depends on the existence of a triangle PQR, which even though every side is out of the range of visibility can be supposed magnified so as to become visible, e.g. [with unit 1" along each axis] if x = 1 and Ao;= -0001 then Ay '00020001 and if we used a microscope magnifying 1000 times the triangle PQR would appear as a triangle in which PR = !" and RQ= -20001". But if we push Q to absolute coinci- dence with P, no amount of magnifying will separate the points P, Q, R. 60. If the equation of a curve is given as y = a?, we may look upon this as a formula for finding the value of y corre- sponding to any assigned value of x, or for finding the ordinate corresponding to any given abscissa. In other words it is a formula by means of which we may obtain the positions of any number of points on the curve. dij -j- = 2x is a formula giving the gradient corresponding to any given abscissa. e.g. if x = 5, y= 25 and ^ = 10. ax i.e. (5, 25) is the point on the curve whose abscissa is 5 and the gradient at this point is 10. 61. In drawing the curve y = y? it is a great help to make use of both formulae.

These lines then are to be tangents to the curve (Fig. 25). If we try to draw a curve passing through these 7 points and touching these 7 lines, we shall find that the run of the curve is pretty well determined. 64 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. II EXERCISES.

(1) We gave t a small increment (Atf) and found the corresponding increment in s As (2) We found the ratio . A^ As (3) We found the limit to which tended as A< was made A smaller and smaller, and from which it could be made to differ by as little as we please by taking A< small enough and this limit ds 63. Generally if a quantity y be a function of another quantity x, a small change, Ax, in x, will produce in y a corresponding small change which we call Ay, and in Av the cases with which we have to deal tends continually Ax to some limit from which it can be made to differ by as little as we please by making Ax small enough. This dv limit is denoted by -~- , and in the Differential Calculus the dZ ul/ fundamental problem is to determine - for different forms of ax the relation connecting y and x. dy 64. -p gives the rate of increase of y per unit in- crease of x or the rate of increase of y with respect to x for any value of x. It tells us that y is increasing so many times as fast as x. In the special case when y and x are replaced by s and t with ds the usual meanings, -y- gives the speed at a given instant.

Cut Thus we see that if the space-time graph be drawn the speed at any instant is given by the gradient of the graph at the point corresponding to that instant. (See 27.) e.g. in the figure Q is the point corresponding to t = 2, s = 27. The gradient of the tangent at Q is 27. The speed at the end of 2 seconds is 27 ft./sec. 66.

The gradient of the tangent is 24. The acceleration at the end of 2 sees, is 24 ft./sec. 2 67. Generally if y is given as a function of x [or y=f(x), f(x) being algebraic shorthand for a function of x\ and if the graph of y=f(x) be drawn, the rate at which y is increasing compared with x for any value of x is the gradient of the graph at the point corresponding to this value of a?.

(71.) Points like B and C are called turning points and at B y is said to have a maximum value, and at C a minimum value. Notice, that although we call the value of y at B a maximum, yet this is not by any means the greatest value y can have. A maximum point is one where the ordinate (representing the function) stops increasing and begins to decrease; in other words the value of y at a maximum point is greater than the value of y at neighbouring points on either side, and similarly at a minimum point the value of y is less than the value of y at neighbouring points on either side. 97. Now suppose we wish to find the exact position of these turning points B and C. At a turning point the tangent to the curve is parallel to OX, i.e. the gradient of the curve is zero, or . ax dv .'. to find the turning points, we get -~ and find the dv values of x which make ^ = 0. dx e.g. in the case above :. -f- = when x = I or 2. dx When x = 1, y - 2 ; when x = 2, y = 1. .'. (1, 2) and (2, 1) are the turning points. 108 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. IV 98. In order to find whether a turning point corresponds to a maximum or minimum we may either draw a rough graph or proceed as follows : when x 1, y = 2 ; when x= 1 + h, y = 2(l + A) 3 - 9 (1 + A) 2 + 12 (1 + A) - 3 = 2 - 3A 2 + 2A 3 . Now if h is a small fraction, 27i 3 is small compared with 3A 2 , and the sign of 3A 2 + 2A 3 is that of the first term, and is there- fore negative whether h is positive or negative. Thus when x=\ t y = 2 ; but if x is slightly greater or less than 1, y < 2. .'. x = 1 corresponds to a maximum value of y. Similarly, shew that when x ~ 2, y = 1 ; but if x is slightly greater or less than 2, y> 1. .'. x = 2 corresponds to a minimum value of y. 99. There is an exceptional case which we shall consider later. Suppose y = So/ - IQx 3 + SOar* - 24a + 5. ax = 12 (-!)( -!)(*- 2), and -?- = when as = 1 or 2. aa5 Ifoj = l, y = -2. If x= 1 + A, y = - 2 - 47i 3 + 3A 4 . If A is a small positive fraction, y < 2. If A is a small negative fraction, y > 2. Thus when x = 1, y 2. If x is slightly greater than 1, y < 2. If as is slightly less than 1, y> 2. So that here there is neither maximum nor minimum.

If we had expressed PQ in terms of a?, we should have 15^25 6a; + y? and we do not yet know how to differentiate this. 105. Notice that we have to express the quantity, of which we wish to find the maximum or minimum value, as a function of one unknown. In some cases it is first of all necessary to express it in terms of two or more unknowns, and then by means of given conditions to express all these unknowns in terms of one of them. 118 CALCULFS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. IV Thus in the second example the surface was written first as a function of x and h, then by means of the given relation, ?rx 2 A= 100, we were able to express h in terms of x, and so get the surface as a function of x only. 106. A common error in questions of maximum and minimum values arises from a confusion between variables and constants. Take, for instance, the second example of 103. If y sq. ins. is the surface area y = irx* + 2-n-xh. The error consists in saying that -- = 2-n-x + 2irh. ax This would only be right if h were constant, i.e. if A remained the same when x changed, which is obviously not the case, for since the volume remains the same, h must increase when x decreases and decrease when x increases.

CHAPTER V SMALL ERRORS AND APPROXIMATIONS 118. WE have already had a few examples of the application of the Differential Calculus to this kind of problem : y being a given function of x, what will be the approximate change in y, due to a small change in x 1 A?y We make use of the fact that is approximately equal to JT-, the approximation being better as Aa; is diminished. The CM? approximation may be put in the form dv Ay = . Ax approximately. e.g. if A sq. ins. is the area of a circle of radius r ins. A = 71^. Now suppose a small error, which we may call Ar, has been made in measuring r, there will be a corresponding small error in A, which we may call AA, and we have seen that AA dA -= approximately, Ar dr J i.e. AA = 2-irr . Ar approximately. Suppose the radius was measured as 10 inches and that there was an error of *1 inch. Then we have r = 10, Ar = !. .'. AA = 27T x 10 x -1 approximately = 2ir approximately, ie. the error in the area is approximately 6*28 sq. ins. [Shew that actually the error is 6'31 sq. ins.] 118-120] SMALL ERRORS AND APPROXIMATIONS 137 If the error in the radius was -01" we should get for the error in the area -6284 sq. ins. instead of '6287. 119. The result AA = 2irr. Ar approximately, admits of a simple geometrical interpretation which is important. It tells us that if the radius (r) of a circle be increased or decreased by a small amount (A?-) the increase or decrease in area is approximately 2rrr . Ar or Area of thin circular ring is approximately circum- ference of either boundary x breadth. e.g. Suppose we have a ring with inner radius 20" and breadth -06", the area is approximately 2ir x 20 x -06 = 2 Air= 7'54 sq. ins. approximately. [Shew that area is actually 2'4036n-= 7 '55 sq. ins.] 120. We might get this result from first principles thus. Area of ring, inner and outer radii a and b, = Tr(& 2 -a 3 ) = IT (b + a) (b a) = ( 2ir . ) t> where t is the breadth = Circumference of concentric circle lying midway between the two circumferences x breadth. [Fig. 58.] Fig. 58. 138 CALCULUS FOE BEGINNERS [CH.

Ar approximately, AA Ar 7T =3 'T' AA or the ratio of the error in the area to the original area, is called the relative error in the area. Thus the relative error in the area is approximately twice the relative error in the radius.

Suppose v c. ins. to be the volume of unit mass of a fluid and p Ibs./sq. in. the pressure, p being some given function of v. If p be increased to p + AJL>, v will become v + Av (Aw being, 140 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. V of course, negative, since an increase in pressure will produce a decrease in volume). Aw will be the diminution of volume. Aw (the ratio of this diminution to the original volume) is called the volume strain. The ratio of A/> (the increase of pressure required to produce this) to the volume strain is v . and the limit of this when Av Aw is indefinitely diminished, i.e. V ==-, is called the elasticity of volume or the bulk modulus of the fluid. 6.

Then NQ =f(x + h), MP =f(x). :. if PR is parallel to OX, RQ =f(x + h) -f(x). If PT is the tangent at P, the gradient of PT is/' (x) and RT = hf'(x), so that in taking f(x + h) -/(*) as equal to hf (x) we take PQ as coincident with PT, in other words we consider the portion PQ of the curve as straight. 125.

Notice that if /' (a;) = 0, i.e. if the tangent at P is parallel to OX, this approximation will not shew any difference between f(x) and f(x + h). See Exs. 5 and 6 below. 124-127] SMALL ERRORS AND APPROXIMATIONS 143 EXERCISES. XXVIII. 1.

The approximation f (x + h) =f (x) 4- hf'(x) is, as we have seen, equivalent to the statement that the gradient of PQ [Fig. 61] is that of the tangent at P. If we suppose P and Q to be such that f (x) and f" (x) do not change sign between P and Q, so that between these points the curve has one of the shapes shewn on p. 99, it is clear that the gradient of PQ is between the gradients of the tangents at P and Q and equal to the gradient at some intermediate point. Thus the quantity [represented by RQ] added to f(x) to make f(x + h} is between hf (x) [RT] and hf'(x + h) [RUj and is actually hf'(x+Qh) where 6 is some proper fraction, so that (x -f 6h} is between x and (x + h). e.g. in 125 /' (3) = 1136, /' (3-01) = 1151-68. So that /(3-01)-/( 3 ) is between -01 x/'(3) and -01 x/'(3'01), i.e. between 11 '36 and 11 '52. Actually it is H'43826..., and as a matter of fact /(3-005) = 1143-8200, so that in this case f(x + h) -f(x) = hf (x + ^h). [Correct to 3 decimal places.] The more rapidly f (x) is changing, the less reliable will f(x) + hf'(x) be as an approximation tof(x + h). 144 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. V Fig. 61. EXERCISES.

AREAS UNDER PLANE CURVES. MEAN ORDINATE 134. Integration. Suppose we want the area of the figure bounded by HK part of the curve y=f(x), the a?-axis, and the ordinates AH, BK corresponding to x = a, x = b. Fig. 63. Divide AB into any number of equal parts and complete the rectangles as shewn in Fig. 63. 134, 135] AREA BY SUMMATION 161 We get an approximation to the area we require by taking it as equal to the sum of these rectangles. This is too small by the sum of the blank portions HOP, PDQ, etc. If AB were divided into twice a.s many parts we should get a better approximation to the area, the sum of the 10 rectangles in Fig. 64 being nearer to the area sought than the sum of the 5 rectangles in Fig. 63 [the sum of the two blank portions between H and P < the portion HOP in the previous figure]. A L M A L M Fig. 65. Fig. 66. By dividing AB into more and more parts we obtain a series of closer and closer approximations to the area sought. 135. If we complete rectangles as in Ficr. 65, we get an approximation to the area required by taking the sum of these external rectangles. This is too large by the sum of the black portions HC'P etc. If AB were divided into twice as many parts we should get a better approximation, the sum of the 10 rectangles in Fig. 66 being nearer to the area sought than the sum of the 5 rectangles in Ficr. 65. M. a 11 162 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VII [The sum of the two small pieces between H and P in Fig. 66 < the small piece HC'P in Fig. 65.] By dividing AB into more and more parts we obtain a series of closer and closer approximations to the area sought 136. Combining Figs. 63 and 65 into one (Fig. 67) we see that the difference between the sum of the outside and the sum of the inside rectangles is the sum of the rectangles CC', DD', EE', FF', = rectangle G F'. If we increase the number of parts into which AB is divided the area of GF' diminishes, for its height remains constant and its breadth diminishes, and by making the number of divisions large enough, we can make the area of GF' as small as we please. i.e. by taking a sufficiently large number of divisions, we can make the difference between the sum of the outside rectangles and the sum of the inside rectangles as small as we please ; and since the area sought lies between these two sums, it is the limit towards which the sum of outside or inside rectangles tends as the number of divisions is indefinitely increased, and the breadth of each division consequently indetinitely diminished. The determination of this limit is called Integration. 135-137] INTEGRATION 163 137. Note. If the shape of the curve is like that shewn in Figs. 68 and 69, the sum of the first set of rectangles is too large and the sum of the second set too small, otherwise the argument is the same and the area sought is the limit towards which the sum of either set tends as the number of divisions is indefinitely increased. \ A B Fig. 68; A B Fig. 69. If the shape is as in Figs. 70 and 71, we cannot say with certainty of the sum of either set that it is too great or too small, C' Fig. 71. 112 164 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

HK is a portion of the line y = 3. (Fig. 73.) AH, BK are the ordinates corresponding to x = 4 and x = 14. Divide AB into 10 equal parts and complete the rectangles as shewn. The different ordinates are the values of y corresponding to x = 4, 5, ... 14. 137, 138] AREA BY SUMMATION 165 Now y = 3ox Hence the ordinates are 12, 15, 18 ... 42. The width of each rectangle = 1. .*. sum of inside rectangles = 12 + 15 + 18 + ... + 39 (10 terms) Sum of outside rectangles = 15 + 18 + ... + 42(10 terms) The difference between these is 30, the area of the rectangle GK. [Height 30 = BK-AH, width 1.] The area ABKH lies between 255 and 285. Now suppose AB divided into 100 equal parts.

The area ABKH lies between 268-5 and 271-5. 166 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VII Similarly shew that if AB be divided into 1000 equal parts the area ABKH lies between 269-85 and 270-15. We have two sets of numbers: 255, 268-5, 269-85,... 285, 271-5, 270-15,... apparently both continually approaching a limit 270. To make quite sure of this, suppose AB divided into n equal parts each = h, so that nh = 10. The ordinates are the values of y corresponding to a? = 4, 4+A, 4 + 2A, ..., 14 -A, 14. Hence the ordinates are 12, 12 + 3A, 12 + GA, ...,42-SA, 42. The width of each rectangle is h. .*. sum of inside rectangles = A[12 + (12 + 3A) + (12 + 6A) + ... + (42 - 37*)] (n terms) and sum of outside rectangles = h [(12 + 3A) + (12 + 6A) + ... + 42] . m The difference is 30/t the area of a rectangle height 30, width A. The area ABKH lies between 270 - 15h and 270 + 15h. Now, as the number of strips is indefinitely increased, i.e. as A -- 0, each of the areas (1) and (2) can be made as near as we please to 270. .'. the area ABKH which is the limit of either sum is 270. Since the limit of the sum of inside rectangles when A -* is the same as the limit of the sum of outside rectangles, we need only calculate one of the sums. 138, 139] UNITS 167 We may say either sum of inside rectangles = 270 15 A, .'. area reqd. = Limit of this when h -- 0, = 270 ; or sum of outside rectangles = 270 + 157*, .'. area reqd. = Limit of this when h -*- 0, = 270. 139. Note on units. In Fig. 73 the a-scale and the y-scale are the same, and the unit of area is the small square which is shaded, whose side is the unit of length. The area ABKH is 270 times this unit. /. if the unit be -1" each way, the unit of area is -01 sq. in. and area ABKH = 270 x -01 = 2'7 sq. ins. If however the scales are different as in Fig. 74 the unit of area is no longer a square but a rectangle whose sides are equal respectively to the oj-unit and the y-unit.

An ordinate is supposed to advance from the position AH corresponding to x = 4, to the position BK corresponding to #= 14, its length continually changing in such a way that its upper end 140J INTEGRATION 169 is always in the line HK. When the ordinate reaches MP, it has swept out a certain area which is obviously a function of x, i.e. it is determined when x is known and changes as a? changes. Call this area A. 7 A MN Fig. 75. "We will consider the change in the area due to a short advance of the ordinate. Let Q be a point (a; + Ao;, y + Ay) on the line and complete the rectangles as in the figure.

So far we have only considered the Integral Calculus in its application to the areas of plane curves. We shall now shew how similar methods may be applied to other problems. Ex. 1. The speed of a body in ft. /sec. at the end of t seconds is given by V = 3t2. Find the distance travelled in 12 seconds from rest. Suppose the whole time 12 sees, to be divided into n equal intervals each h sees., so that nh=l'2, and suppose the speed to remain constant during each interval and equal to the speed at the beginning of the interval. The speeds at the beginning of successive intervals are 0, 3A 2 , 3 (2hy, ... 3 (n^lhf, and the total distance described on our assumption would be h [0 + 3# + 3 . (2A) 2 + ... + 3 (n^\hy\ 01J 2 2 + 3 2 +... (n-1) terms] =-(-l) n(2-l) = 1728 - 216h + 6h2 (= aj. 206 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VIII Now suppose the speed to remain constant during each inter- val and equal to the speed at the end of the interval. The total distance would be h [3/t 2 + 3 .

But by diminishing h indefinitely we can make Sj and S 2 each as near to 1728 as we like. .'. S is the limit of either Sj or S 2 as h-*-Q, and S= 1728. Notice that it is unnecessary to find both S, and 83. We can say either S 1 = 1728 - 216A+ 6A 2 , .'. S=1728, or S=1728 + 216A + 6/t 2 , .'. S=1728. EXERCISES. XLVm. If v=5 + 7t find by this method the distance travelled, (i) in the first 5 seconds, (ii) in the 10th second. Also in each case find what the distance would be if we supposed the time to be divided up into intervals of -01 sec. and the speed to remain constant during each interval and equal to the speed at the beginning of the interval. Find by how much per cent, the distance calculated on this assumption differs from the actual distance. 169. The method employed in 168 corresponds exactly to that employed in the determination of an area in 138. There we had a continually changing ordinate (y) whose length was given as a function of the abscissa (a;). Here we have a continually changing speed (v) whose magnitude is given as a function of the time (t). There we got an approximation to the area traced out 168-170] DISTANCE FROM SPEED-TIME FORMULA 207 by the moving ordinate by dividing the distance travelled by it into small pieces and supposing the ordinate to remain the same length as it passed from end to end of each small piece : we then added the areas of the thin rectangles so obtained and finally found the limit of the sum of these areas as the number of them was indefinitely increased and the breadth of each consequently indefinitely diminished. Here we get an approximation to the distance travelled by the body by dividing the whole time into small intervals and supposing the speed to remain constant during each interval ; we then add the small distances so obtained and finally find the limit of the sum of these distances, as the number of them is indefinitely increased and the length of each interval consequently indefinitely diminished. 170. We shall now approach the problem from a different point of view corresponding to that adopted in 140, in finding the area traced out by a moving ordinate. Let s ft. be the distance described in t sees, and s + As ft. be the distance described in t + A sees. The speed at the beginning of the interval A is 3t* f t./sec. and at the end 3 (t + A) 2 . /. As lies between 3< 2 . A< and 3 (t + A*) 2 A, As .-. lies between 3i! 2 and 3 (t + A) a .

Find the distance travelled between the ends of the 3rd and 10th seconds when w=2t 3 + 3t + 5. 171. Generally if v =f(t) and we want the distance between the end of a sees, and the end of b sees., we say As lies between f (t) . A< andy( + A2) . A and as before we deduce Let < (t) be a function of t which when differentiated gives /<*) .*. s = < (t) + c. Now s = when t = a. i.e. * = < (t} <f> (a), and the distance required = <j> (b) </> (a) = (t) \ . 172. Each term in the first series in 168 is the distance travelled in a time h, the speed being supposed constant through- out the interval.

This problem can be reduced to the problem of finding an area as follows : The relation v - 3 2 can be exhibited in the form of a graph. [Fig. 94.] M. C. 14 210 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VIII Distances along the horizontal axis represent seconds of time and distances along the vertical axis represent speed in ft./sec. OM represents t seconds, i.e. OM contains t horizontal units of length. MP represents a speed of 3 2 ft./sec., i.e. MP contains 3< J vertical units of length. ON represents (t+ A) seconds and NQ 3 (t + A) 8 ft./sec. The number of feet described in the interval A on our first hypothesis is v A, and this is the number of units of area in the rectangle PMNR. The number of feet described in 12 seconds will be the number of units of area in all strips like PMNR between O and the ordinate corresponding to t = l2. t=12 In other words 2 vA< may be looked upon either as the t=o number of feet described in all the intervals or as the number of 174, 175] DISTANCE FROM SPEED-TIME GRAPH 211 units of area in all the strips and the limit of this when A< - f 12 (which we call I vdt) is either the number of feet described in JO 12 seconds or the number of units of area in the curvilinear figure OAB where AB is the ordinate 03= 12. General statement for speed-time graph. 175. Generally.

VIII number of units of area bounded by the curve, v = Q, t = a, t b, gives the number of units of length in the distance described between the end of a seconds and the end of b seconds. If the speed-time and space-time graphs be drawn, the number of units of length in the difference between two ordinates of the space-time graph is equal to the number of units of area in the corresponding portion of the speed-time graph. e.g. number of units of area in OPM is number of units of length in mp or m'p. [Fig. 95.] i.e. the number of units of area lying between the speed-time curve, the time-axis and the ordinates t = a, t = b is the number of units of length in the distance travelled between the end of a seconds and the end of b seconds. Another example. 176. If w=112-32, rt>A = ["ll2-16< 1 T= 112x3-16 x 21=0. The meaning of this is not hard to find. From t = 2 to t = 3 J, v is positive. From t = 3 to t = 5, v is negative. t=5 So that of the terms which go to make up 2 v&t, some are t=2 positive and some negative and our result tells us that the sums of positive and negative terms are numerically equal. As a matter of fact our formula gives the speed at any time of a body projected vertically with speed 112 ft./sec. From t = 2 to = 3J the body ascends and from t = 3^ to t = 5 it descends an equal distance, so that its distance from the starting point, or what we may call the effective distance described, is zero. If we want the actual distance described we must integrate from 2 to 3. 175-177] SPEED-TIME AND SPACE-TIME GRAPHS 213 If we draw the graph v=112-32< we get a straight line cutting y - where x = 3.

(1) Integration is a process of summation. If f(x) be any function of x, the values which f(x) takes as x increases from a to b by equal increments h are /(a), f(a + h),f(a + 2h).... The limit of the sum h ./(a) + hf(a + h) + ... hf(b) when h -*-0 x=b or as it may be briefly written the limit of S f(x) . Aa; when x=a rt> Ace -* is written I /(a?) . dx and the finding of this limit is Ja called integration. (2) Integration is a process of anti-differentiation. To find the limit of the sum just mentioned it is necessary to discover a function of x, say <f> (x), such that ^ ' =f(x), i.e. to dx find a function (f> (x) which when differentiated gives /(). This process of finding < () which may be called a process of anti-differentiation is also called integration. If (3) Any definite integral may be interpreted as an area. f(x) . dx is the area bounded by the curve y =f(x), the -axis and the ordinates x = a and x = 6. Therefore, even if we cannot find the value of the definite integral by the ordinary methods, that is to say if we cannot dis- cover a function < (x) such that *V =f( x }i we can nn d its CtOb value approximately by drawing the curve y=f(tt) between x = a 220 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VIII and x = b and applying some one of the approximate methods previously mentioned for finding the area. 184. In any problem requiring the Integral Calculus for its solution it is advisable to keep in mind what we should do if we wanted an approximate solution. Ex. 1 . Find the area bounded by y = cc 3 , y = 0, x = 3, x = 1. We have to find the area traced out by an ordinate which moves from the position AH to the position BK, its length changing continually in accordance with the law y = a?. [Fig. 98.] To get an approximate area we should divide AB into a num- ber of equal parts like MN, and suppose the ordinate to keep the same length MP as it moved from M to N. The sum of all such rectangles as MR would be an approxima- tion to the area required, and we have seen that the actual area required is the limit of the sum of such rectangles when their width is indefinitely diminished. We have seen that so far as the value of this limit is concerned it is immaterial whether we suppose the ordinate in its passage 183, 184] EXAMPLES OF INTEGRATION 221 from M to N to preserve its initial length M P or its final length NQ, or of course any intermediate length. The work may be stated thus : Suppose the area divided into a number of strips by lines parallel to OY. Let PMNQ be a typical strip, MP being the ordinate corre- sponding to abscissa x. .'. MP = x 3 and area PMNQ = x=1 approximately and sum of strips = 5 a? 3 Ace approximately. z=3 x s dx Ex. 2. The speed (v ft./sec.) of a body at the end of t seconds is given by v = 6t+17t 2 . Find the distance travelled between the end of the. 2nd and the end of the 5th second. Here we have to find the distance travelled in a certain time by a body whose speed continually changes in accordance with the law v = 6t + 17t 2 . To get an approximate result we should divide the whole time into a number of small intervals and suppose the speed to keep throughout each interval the value which it has at the beginning of the interval. We should then calculate the distance travelled in each interval on this assumption and the sum of all the distances would be an approximation to the required distance. The actual distance is the limit of this sum when the duration of each interval is indefinitely diminished. We have seen that so far as the value of this limit is concerned it is immaterial whether we suppose the speed throughout an interval to remain 222 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [OH. VIII the same as it was at the beginning or at the end of the interval, or indeed at any intermediate instant. The work may be stated thus : Suppose the whole time divided into a number of small intervals. The interval A following the end of t seconds may be taken as the typical interval. The speed at the beginning of this interval is (6J+17* 2 ) ft/sec. .*. Distance travelled in this interval = (6f+ 17 2 ) A feet approximately and the total distance is 2 (Qt+ 17< 2 ) A approxi- mately. /B Actually, distance is / (6< + Iltydt Ja = 63 + 663 = 726 feet. Ex. 3. A tank 6 feet deep is filled with water. Find the magnitude of the resultant thrust on an end which is 4 feet wide. The pressure at any point is proportional to the depth and is therefore continually changing as we pass downwards from top to bottom of the tank. We should get an approximation to the required thrust by dividing the area into a number of thin strips by horizontal lines, and supposing the pressure to remain constant over each strip. If PQNM is such a strip we suppose the pressure not to change as we pass from the level PM to the level QN but to keep throughout the value that it has at the level PM. [Fig. 99.] 184] EXAMPLES OF INTEGRATION 223 We should then calculate the thrust on the atrip PQN M on this assumption, and the sum of the thrusts on all the strips would be an approximation to the required result. 4' X 1 Fig. 99. The actual resultant thrust is the limit of this sum when the width of each strip is indefinitely diminished. The limit would be the same if we supposed the pressure at every point of PQNM to be the same as it is at the level QN or at any level intermediate between PM and QN. The work may be stated thus : Suppose the end divided into thin strips by horizontal lines. PQNM is such a strip, the depth of P being x feet and PQ = Ax feet. The pressure at the level PM = wt. of x cubic feet of water per sq. foot= 62'5a; Ibs. wt./sq. ft. The area of the strip = 4Aa? sq. ft. .*.

If instead of a series of disconnected particles we have a continuous body, we split it up into strips or slices as when we were finding areas or volumes, find the sum of the moments of inertia of all the pieces and the limit to which this sum tends as the pieces are indefinitely diminished. 188.

Sometimes a more convenient method of splitting into elements than by lines parallel to an axis may be found. e.g. Find the moment of inertia of a circular disc radius a about an axis through the centre perpendicular to its plane. We naturally seek for a set of points at the same distance from the axis and this suggests splitting the disc into thin con- centric rings. Such a ring is shewn in figure 106.

[This point is called the centre of pressure.] Our approximate solution would be the finding of the line of action of the resultant of the thrusts on the strips into which the rectangle is supposed to be divided. 198, 199] CENTRE OF PRESSURE 249 The principle of which we make use is that if we take moments about any line, the moment of the resultant of any number of forces = the sum of the moments of the separate forces. Now it is obvious that the centre of pressure lies on the vertical line of symmetry. It therefore remains to find its distance from AB. Take moments about AB. The thrust on our typical strip PQNM = 250* A,w Ibs. wt. approximately and may be taken to act at the centre of the rect- angle PQNM. .\ Moment of this thrust about AB = 250* Aa; x x Ibs. ft. approximately and the sum of the moments of all the thrusts i-e F250 ~1 6 = I 250^. dx = ~y? = 250 x 72 Ibs. ft. / L ^ -I o The resultant thrust we have seen to be f J T250 ~l 6 250xdx= \..a?\ = 250 x 18 Ibs. wt.

We have already ( 1 64) defined the mean value of f(x) between x = a and x = b as being the height of a rectangle whose base is (b a) and whose area is equal to that bounded by the curve y =f(x), the sc-axis and the ordinates x = a and x = b. This mean value is Ja f(x) . dx b-a and we might take this as the definition of the mean value. It will be instructive to obtain this result by a method which does not involve the idea of area. In ordinary arithmetic the mean or average of a set of quantities is obtained by dividing the sum of the quantities by their number [i.e. it is the Arithmetic mean of the quantities]. Thus if 5 men have heights 5 ft. 8 ins., 5 ft. 6 ins., 6 ft., 6 ft. 2 ins. and 5 ft. 2 ins. the average height is b' 8" + 5' 6" + 6' + 6' 2" + 5' 2" 28' 6" p D 0-2- . 5 o The combined height of 5 men each of height 5 ft. 8| ins. is the same as that of the given 5 men. Now suppose we have a function of x, /(a?), and suppose x to pass from the value a to the value b by n equal steps e^ch = A so that nh = b a. Successive values of x are a, a + h, a+2h, ... (b-h), b, and the corresponding values of f(x) are /(a), /(a + A), /(a + 2A), . . ./(b - A), /(&), (n + 1) in number. The Arithmetic mean of these values is /() +f(a + h) +f(a + 2A) + ... +f(b-h) +f(b) n+l ' 200, 201] MEAN VALUES 251 hf(a) + hf(a + h) + ... + hf(b- h) + hf(b) (b-a) + h ' since nh b a. We define the mean value of f(x) between a and b as the limit of this when h -*- 0, i.e. when the number of steps from a to b is indefinitely increased. We have seen that the numerator can be written "?/<) **, x=o where Aw takes the place of h and the limit of this when AOJ - is rt> f(x) dx. Ja Also the limit of the denominator is b a. .'. The mean value of f(x) between a and b is L b f(x) . dx b a 201. In questions of mean value it is important to make clear what the independent variable is. The following example will illustrate what is meant. A stone falls to the ground from the top of a tower 400 feet high. Find its mean speed. [g= 32.] We may think of the speed as a function of either (i) the time, or (ii) the distance fallen. If we take (i) we suppose the whole time of fall divided into n equal parts, the speeds at the ends of these equal intervals of time calculated, and the Arithmetic mean of them obtained. Our mean speed is the limiting value of this Arithmetic mean when n is indefinitely increased. It is easily found that 5 sees, is the time of falling and that 7> = 32< is the formula which expresses v as a function of . 252 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. VIII .'. The mean speed on the first assumption is Cvdt /* Jo _ Jo 32*.<ft o _ o Qr . f. I 5 5 -- = - 5 - = 8O it. /sec. If we take (ii) we suppose the whole distance, 400 feet, divided into n equal parts, the speeds at the points of division calculated and the Arithmetic mean obtained. Our mean speed is the limiting value of this Arithmetic mean when n is indefinitely increased. The formula connecting v and s is v* = 64s. .'. The mean speed on the second assumption is 202. Ex. 1. Find the average speed between the end of the 2nd and the end of the 5th second of a body whose speed changes according to the law v = Qt + 17 &. i.e. find the mean value of Qt + 17 2 between t = 2 and t = 5. This is - _. - = = 242 ft./sec. Z o /6 Since I (6< + 17 2 ) rf< or 726 ft, is the distance travelled in the J2 3 seconds between the end of the 2nd and the end of the 5th second, this speed of 242 ft./sec. is the uniform speed with which the body would have to move to cover the same distance in the same time (v. definition of average speed in Chap. L). Ex. 2. The pressure and volume of a gas are connected by the law pv = 540, p being in Ibs. wt./sq. ft. and v in cub. ft.

Tables have been made giving logarithms of numbers to the base e [called natural or Hyperbolic, or Napierian loga- rithms, the last from the inventor John Napier of Merchiston 15501617]. If these are not available, the logarithm of any number to the base e can be obtained from the logarithm to the base 10 by using the formula Iog 10 n log e n=^ . log This is a particular case of a general theorem, viz. For let Iog 6 n = x and Iog 6 a = y, :. n=b x ...(l) and a = 6*.. .(2). .

This gives As we shall be mainly concerned with the bases e and 10 we take the particular results got by substituting e and 10 for a and 6. Thus and log, 10 = Iog 10 e[i.e. log,, 27183...] is -43429, and its reciprocal is 2-3026, each being correct to 5 significant figures. 316 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

Fig. 124 shews the graph of y = 2*. 70 60 50 30 20 10 Fig. 124. 252-254] GRAPHIC TREATMENT 317 Now if we keep the same axes and make a suitable change in the cc-scale, this can be made to stand for the graph of y = n x , where n is any number whatever. e.g. 4 = 2 2 , so that 4 X = 2*, 4 s = 2 6 , 4 1 ' 5 = 2 s etc., the index when a number is expressed as a power of 4 being half the index when it is expressed as a power of 2. Therefore if the a;-scale be as indicated in the second line, the graph is that of Similarly since 8 = 2 s and 8* = 2 s *, the graph will be that of y = 8 X if the jc-scale be as indicated in the third line. Any number can be expressed as a power of 2, for instance 3=10' 4771 and 2 = 10' S01 , 4771 /. 3 = 2' 3U1 = 2 1-58B . .', if the ce-scale be as indicated in the fourth line, the graph will be that of y = 3 X . And so on for any value of n. The oj-axis is in each case OX. 254. We shall now prove an important geometrical property of the curve y = n x [Fig. 1 25].

(ii) by joining the points for which x = and x = 2, also those for which x=2 and x=4t, also those for which x = 3 and x=5. 255. Now let A-*-0 and we get the property that in the curve y = n x the subtangent is the same at every point. i.e. if NP be the ordinate of P and if the tangent at P meet OX in T, then TN is the same for all positions of P on the curve. [Fig. 126.] Now if P be the point (x, y) and if TN = t, we have y = t x gradient of TP ^y^. w here t is constant ax t 254-257 GEAPHIC TREATMENT 319 256. There is one of the curves y = n x for which t=\ t in other words on some scale or other TN will be of unit length.

Let A be the point on the graph the tangent at which goes through O. [This point can be found fairly accurately with a straight edge.] Then if AB be the ordinate of A and we choose our or-scale so that OB is unit length the graph will be y = d e , and moreover BA gives the value of y corresponding to # = 1, i.e. the number of y- units in BA is e. From Fig. 124 we can see that e is something between 2*5 and 3. From Fig. 127 which is part of Fig. 124 drawn to a larger scale we see that e is between 2 '7 and 2-75. 320 CALCULUS FOB BEGIMNERS [CH.

SUPPOSE we wish to solve x3 _ 6x 2 + 9x - 1 = 0. The ordinary graphical method is to draw the graph of and find where it cuts the a;-axis. The degree of accuracy attained will depend on the care expended in drawing the graph and on the size of the scales used. We have seen that a knowledge of the gradients at different points is a great help in drawing the graph. Put f (x) =a?-Ga? + 9x-l, then / / (*) = 3* a -12a; + 9=3(a;-l)(a:-3). Make a table of values : x 01234 /() -1 3 1-1 3 /'(*) 90-309 If we draw the graph (Fig. 133) the roots appear to lie between (i) and -2, (ii) 2-3 and 2-4, (iii) 3-5 and 3-6. 269. If we want better approximations, it is better to work at each root separately. 268, 269] EQUATIONS 3(53 Take the first root, that is the one lying between and -2. x -2 /(*) - 1 -568 /' (x) 9 6-72 Fig. 133. P, Q (Fig. 134) are the points (0, - 1) and (-2, -568). PS, QT are the lines through these points with gradients 9 and 6 '7 2, i.e. they are the tangents at P and Q. It is evident from the figure without actually drawing the curve that it cuts the axis very nearly where x = '12. We find /(-12) =- -004672. If we want something nearer, the figure suggests trying -13. /(13) = -070797. 364 CALCULUS FOB BEGINNERS .*. the root is between -12 and '13. x -12 -13 f(x) - -00467 -07080 /'() 7-60 7-49 P' is (-12, - -00467), Q' is (-13, -07080). [CH. XII Fig. 134. It will be found, even on a large scale drawing (Fig. 135), difficult to distinguish between P'Q' and the tangents at P' and Q'. 1205 seems the best approximation. As a matter of fact /(-1 205) = - -0009 nearly. 269, 270] EQUATIONS 365 270. In the example just worked out /(O) =- 1, /(I) = 3, i.e. the point on the graph of y =f(x) corresponding to x = is below, while that corresponding to x = 1 is above the aj-axis, therefore we might say that the graph of y =f(x) cuts the OS-axis at some intermediate point. Fig. 135. It may happen that y =f(x) cuts the cc-axis at more than one point between the points corresponding to je = and x = l, e.g. referring to Fig. 133, and there are 3 roots between and 4. and there is 1 root between 1 and 3. 366 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. XII Also if / (x) has the same sign for two different values of x, say a and b, it does not follow that there is no root between a and b ; for instance, taking the same figure, /(2) = l,/(4) = 3 and there are 2 roots between 2 and 4_ Iff (a) and/ (6) have opposite signs, there is an odd number of roots between a and b. If /(a) and/(6) have the same sign, there is no root or an even number of roots between a and b. 271. There is an exceptional case if f (x) becomes infinite between a and b. e.g. suppose /(#) Fig. 136. 270-273] EQUATIONS 367 Here /(- -5) = - 175, but there is no root between -5 and - 5. A glance at Fig. 136 will shew the reason of this. When x = 0, y is infinite. When x is very small and negative, y is very large and negative. When x is very small and positive, y is very large and positive. so that as x passes through the value 0, y suddenly changes from a very large negative value to a very large positive value. It thus appears that \i.f(a) andy*(6) have opposite signs we must take care that/(a;) does not become infinite for some value of x between a and b, otherwise our inference that there is a root between a and b may be wrong. 272. If f(a) and f(b) have opposite signs and if moreover f (x) and f" (x) do not change sign between x = a and x = b, then between x=a and x = b the graph of y=f(x) will have one of the shapes shewn in 94, and will cut the o;-axis only once between x = a and x = 6. 273. A method of continual approximation to the value of a root will now be considered which does not require the actual drawing of the graph. Taking the same equation as before, we have /' (x) = 3a; 2 - 1 2* + 9 > = 3 (x - 1 ) (x - 3), / = 6(*-2). Now/(2)=l,/(3) = -l. 368 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. XII Also from o? = 2 to x-3, f'(x) is negative and f"(x) is positive. .'. the curve y =/() between x = 2 and x 3 is like Fig. 137, and there is only one root between 2 and 3. M Fig. 137. If PT is the tangent at P and the chord PQ cuts the .r-axis in R, the point A where the curve cuts the aj-axis is between T and R. Now/' (2) =-3. .'. equation of PT is y 1 = 3 (x - 2). Putting y = 0, x = 2 + . [This is OT where O is the origin.] This value of x [2J] is a better approximation to the root than 2. 2 Again gradient of PQ is - y , and equation of PQ is Putting y = 0, x = 2 + J. [This is OR.] This value of x [2] is a better approximation to the root than 3. .'. we know that the root is between 2J and 2J and therefore between 2 -33 and 2-50. ["We must be careful here not to overstate the smaller or to understate the larger value, for instance we cannot safely say that the root is between 2-34 and 2-50.] 273, 274] EQUATIONS 369 To get a closer appi-oximation, use the points P', Q' corre- sponding to a; = 2-33 and as = 2'50 exactly as we have just used P and Q. /(2-33) = 0-045937, /(2'5) = - 0-375, /'(2-33) = -2-6733.

If we want a still closer approximation we use the points P", Q" corresponding to x= 2-347 and 05 = 2'349. /(2-S47) = 0-000781923, /(2-S49) =-0-004491451, /' (2-347) =-2-638773. Equation P"T" y - -000781923 = - 2-638773 (* - 2-347). Equation P"Q" y- -000781923 = - 2-636687 (x - 2-347). .*. at R" .'. the root lies between 2-3472963 and 2-3472966. 274.

XII which lies between x = 2 and x = 3 from the data This would shew quite clearly that the root lies between 2-3 and 2-4. In working out the smallest root, we might proceed graphically as far as the stage reached in 269. Fig. 135 seems to shew that the root is between -1205 and '1207. Also/' (x) is positive and /" (x) negative so that the curve is like Fig. 40 (6), 94. Proceeding on the lines of 273, we find that the root lies between -12061474 and -12061477. 275. Sometimes it may not be so easy as in the example just considered to decide whether f (x) keeps the same sign between the values of x chosen, and it may be useful, to argue as follows: Between x = 2 and x = 3, f" (x) is clearly positive. i.e. f (x) continually increases j but/' (2) = 3 and /' (3) = 0. .'. /' (x) is negative all the way. 276. The rough figure (137) should be drawn, so that there shall be no doubt at which end of the arc the tangent ought to be drawn. The following example will shew what may happen if we neglect this precaution. Suppose f(x) = Saj 8 80; + 1 "j f'(x) = Qx*-8 \. f"(x) = lSx ) Here /(I) =-4, /(2) = 9, and between x = 1 and x = 2, /' (x) and /" (x) do not change sign ; they are both positive. .*. there is 1 root between 1 and 2. 274-277] EQUATIONS 371 Now if we start from P (the point on y =f(x) corresponding to x = 1), we have since y (1) = 1 : Equation of tangent PT is y + 4 = 1 (x 1). .". at T, x = 5. But 5 is not a better approximation to the root than 1. Since f (x) and f" (x) are both positive between x = 1 and x = 2 the curve is of the form shewn in Fig. 138 and a glance at the figure will shew that we should have worked from Q (corresponding to x = 2). Q Fig. 138. U is nearer to A than N is. T is not nearer to A than M is. Of course with a curve of this form it may happen that T comes nearer to A than M does, but on the other hand it may not, whereas U must be nearer to A than N is. What we ought to do in this case is to consider 2 as the first approximation to the root and get a better one by finding the co-ordinates of U. 277. As another example take the equation coso?=o; and let it be required to find the least positive root.

CHAPTER XIII SOME METHODS OF INTEGRATION Further examples in integration. 278. OUR success in evaluating integrals of the form ]f(x) dx has so far depended on our ability to recognise f(x) as the result of differentiating some standard function, e.g. we know that d (tan x) 7 = sec 2 x, dx and hence that f sec 2 x dx = tan x + c. It will be convenient at this stage to collect the most impor- tant standard results. They have all been worked out either in the text or in the exercises. It is understood that an arbitrary constant should be added to every function in the column headed z dx. When a more complicated expression is to be integrated, our object will be to reduce it to one or other of these standard forms. A few of the simpler methods of effecting such reduction are given in this chapter, and it will be seen that many functions yield to these methods of treatment, but no rule can be given for the integration of any given function. 370 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH.

WE have hitherto considered the position of a point in a plane as determined by its distances from two fixed axes. These distances are the " Cartesian co-ordinates " of the point. There is another system in which the position of a point is determined by a distance and an angle. The position is obviously determined if we know the length, direction and sense of the line joining the point to some fixed point. For instance if A is a given point and we say that B is 100 yards N. 30 E. from A, B is determined. This is the principle of " Polar Co-ordinates." 284. O is a fixed point (fig. 140), OX a fixed line through p Fig. 140. 283-287] POLAR CO-OTCDINATES 389 O. The position of P is known if we are given the length OP and the angle, XOP, through which a line must swing to get from the position OX to the position OP. These are called the "polar co-ordinates " of P, and are denoted by (r, 0). O is called the pole and OX the "initial line." 285. There is an infinite number of ways of writing the co-ordinates of a point P, e.g. if XOP = 30 and OP is 3 inches, taking 1" as the unit of length we may give the co-ordinates of P as (3, 30), (3, 390), (3, - 330) etc. 286. If r is negative the radius bounding the angle must be produced backwards through O, e.g. if the point is ( 3, 210), first draw OP' so that XOP'= 210, then produce P'O backwards through O so that OP is 3". This brings us to the same point P as in 285. EXERCISES. LXXXVIII. 1. Taking 1" as the unit of length, plot the points (3, 40), (-3, 140), ( - 3, 220), (3, 320), ( - 3, - 50), (3, - 500), ( - 3, - 1000). 2. Draw the loci : (i).r=a, (ii) 0=40, (iii) r=acos0, (iv) rcos0 = a, (v) r=asin0, (vi) rsin 0=a. 287. Figure 141 shews part of the curve r=f(0), P is the point (r, 0) and Q the point (7- + Ar, 6 + A0), PS is perpendicular to OQ, and R is the point where a circle, centre O radius OP, cuts OGL .'.

These facts may be found useful in drawing the curve, just as the knowledge of the gradient was a help in drawing a curve whose equation was given in Cartesian co-ordinates. 288. Areas. Suppose we want the area bounded by HK, part of the curve r =/(#), and the radii OH, OK. 392 CALCULUS FOR BEGINNERS [CH. XIV Divide Z HOK into any number of equal parts and with O as centre describe circular arcs as shewn in fig. 144. Fig. 144. The area required lies between the sum of the internal sectors OHC, OPD, OQE, ... and the sum of the external sectors OPC', OQD', .... The difference between these sums is the sum of the areas CHC'P, DPD'Q ..., and this is the same as the area GK. By sufficiently diminishing the angle of the sectors or increasing the number of the sectors, we can make this area GK as small as we like, and thus the area required is the limit of the sum of either the internal or external sectors as the number of sectors is indefinitely increased or the angle of the sectors indefinitely diminished [cp. 136]. If P be any point (r, ff) on the arc HK and if Q be (r + Ar, 6 + A0), the area of the sector POD is ^ r 3 .
