## Assignment 3 Trigonometric Expressions and Techniques

Scenario
In your work as a Communications technician , you may have to deal with a variety of calculations and manipulations that need a knowledge of differential and integral calculus. As part of your course you are required to prove your abilities to do such calculations and manipulations through solving the following tasks.

[ Pass P9 ]
(t 0) ,

A. An object moves along the x-axis so that its position at any time, is given by
s (t ) = cos t 2 + t

## Find the velocity of the object as a function of t.

B.

A ring-shaped conductor with radius R (as shown in the figure above) carries a total charge (Q) uniformly distributed around it. The electric field at a point P that lies on the axis of the ring at a distance x from its center is given by:
Ex = 1 4 o Qx

Find the expression for the rate of change of ( E x ) with respect to ( x ), with the other values being constant.

C.

In electrostatics, the electric field, ( E y ), at a point P due a line charge is related to the perpendicular distance, ( y ), by the following equation:
1 2 L 1 2 )y (L + 4y2 ) 2 4 o

Ey = (

Where, ).

L, , o are

constants.

## Find the expression for the rate of change of ( E y ) with respect to ( y

[ Pass P10 ]

The angular velocity () is the time rate of change of the angular displacement () of a rotating object. See the figure above. In testing the shaft of an electric motor, its angular velocity is given by:
= 16t + 0 5t 2

Where (t) is the time of rotation (in seconds). Find the angular displacement () through which the shaft goes in 10 seconds.

B.

A proton is fired at an initial velocity of 150 m/s at an angle of 60 o above the horizontal into a uniform electric field as shown in the figure above. The acceleration (a) due to this field is, therefore, in the negative y-direction and uniform with a value of
1.92 10 4 m / s 2

(the negative sign is chosen so that all quantities directed up are positive and all quantities directed down are negative.) Find the expressions for the y-component of the velocity component of
(v y ) and

the y-

ay = dv y dt
ds dt

, and

v y (t ) =

## v y (0) =150 cos 60, s y (0) = 0

[ Merit M3 ]

The magnetic reluctance , ( R ) , of an iron core with a rectangular cross section is inversely proportional to the product of its width (w) and its depth (d). (See figure above.) Find the dimensions of the iron core with the minimum magnetic reluctance that can be cut from an iron piece with a circular cross section which has a diameter (D =10 2 cm ).

[ Distinct D2 ]

A small mass of metal attached to a spring which is stretched to undergo simple harmonic motion described by the following equation:
v(t ) = 3sin t

Where,
v (t ) =

## = angular velocity of oscillation. (rad/s)

If the period of oscillation, T, is equal to 2 seconds, find the displacement of the mass after ( 1 ) second using: 1. Simpsons Rule; use n = 10 2. Trapezoidal Rule; use n = 10 3. Integral calculus method. Then find the percentage error of each of Simpsons Rule and

Trapezoidal Rule with respect to the accurate Integral calculus method and conclude which one is more accurate.
