# Introduction

Introduction is a fundamental component of any discourse, serving as the gateway to the subsequent discussion. It sets the stage, providing context and outlining the scope of the subject matter at hand. A well-crafted introduction captivates the audience's attention, establishes the purpose of the discussion, and often hints at the main points to be addressed. In academic writing, it lays the groundwork for the thesis statement or research question. Whether in a formal presentation, an essay, or a casual conversation, a strong introduction is essential for engaging the audience and guiding them through the forthcoming discussion.

Questions

- How do you show that the linearization of #f(x) = (1+x)^k# at x=0 is #L(x) = 1+kx#?
- The velocity of a particule is v = 2t + cos (2t). When t = k the acceleration is 0. Show that k = pi/4?
- What is the derivative of kinetic energy with respect to velocity?
- How do I visualize derivatives? I know how to derive functions, but for some reason I need a visual to fully understand the concept.
- A baseball diamond is a square with side 90 ft. A batter hits the ball and runs toward first base with a speed of 26 ft/s. At what rate is his distance from second base decreasing when he is halfway to first base?
- What is the derivative of #tanh(x)#?
- How do you find the linearization of #f(x)=x^(3/4)# at x=1?
- If a ball is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 56 feet per second, for how long will the ball be going upward?
- How many seconds will the ball be going upward if a ball is thrown vertically upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 20 feet per second and #a(t)= -32# feet per second squared?
- How do you find the velocity and position vectors if you are given that the acceleration vector is #a(t)= (-4 cos (-2t))i + (-4sin (-2t))j + (-2t)k# and the initial velocity is #v(0)=i+k# and the initial position vector is #r(0)= i+j+k#?
