If you can provide a general (or detailed if possible =)) explanation on how you solved the problem, or the strategy you used for the problem, I would be extremely grateful. Solving even just one part will help me immensely! So here goes... 1. Let f and g be the functions given by f(x)=e^x and g(x) = ln(x) a. Find the area of the region enclosed by the graphs of f and g between x = 1/2 and x=1. b. Find the volume of the solid generated when the region enclosed by the graphs of f and g between x= 1/2 and x=1 is revolved around the line y=4. c. Let h be the function given by h(x) = f(x) - g(x). Find the absolute minimum value of h(x) on the closed interval [1/2,1] and find the absolute maximum value of h(x) on the closed interval [1/2,1]. 2. t(minutes) 0 2 5 7 11 12 r ' (t) (feet/min) 5.7 4.0 2.0 1.2 0.6 0.5 (Note: this is a table) The volume of a spherical hot air balloon expands as the air inside the balloon is heated. The radius of the balloon, in feet, is modeled by a twice-differentiable function r of time t, where t is measured in minutes. For 0
