Q1.Find the slope of the tangent to the curve at x = 4.

Ans. The slope of the tangent to the curve is

If x = 4, the slope =

Q2.Find the slope of the tangent to the curve

Ans. We are given the equation of the curve

The slope of the given curve is the differentiation of y with respect to x as follows

If x = 10, the slope =

Q3.Find the slope of the tangent to the curve y = x³ – x + 1 at the point whose x-coordinate is 2.

Ans. The slope of the tangent to the curve

is

y = x³ – x + 1

= 3x²- 1

Slope of the curve at x = 2

3 × 2²- 1

12 -1 = 11

Q4.Find the slope of the tangent to the curve y = x^{3} – 3x + 2 at the point whose x-coordinate is 3

Ans. We are given the curve y = x^{3} – 3x + 2

y = x^{3} – 3x + 2

= 3x² – 3

The slope of the curve at x = 3

3 × 3² – 3 = 27 – 3 = 24

Q5.Find slope of the normal to the curve x = a cos³θ, y = a sin³θ at θ = π/4.

Ans. We are given

x = a cos³θ, y = a sin³θ

The slope of the curve is = -1

Let the slope of the normal to the curve = m

We know the relation

the slope of the curve × m = -1

-1 × m = -1

m = 1

Q6. Find the slope of the normal to the curve x = 1 – a sinθ, y = b cos”θ at θ = π/2.

Ans. We are given the curve

x = 1 – a sinθ, y = b cos”θ

The slope of the given curve is

The slope of the curve at θ = π/2

So, slope of the curve, m = 2b/a

Let slope of the normal to the curve is = M

We have

Hence normal to the given curve is = -a/2b

Q7. Find points at which the tangent to the curve y = x^{3} – 3x^{2} – 9x + 7 is parallel to the x-axis.

Ans. The given curve is

y = x^{3} – 3x^{2} – 9x + 7

Slope of the tangent dy/dx is evaluated as follows

Since the tangent to the curve is parallel x -axis

The equation of x -axis is

y = 0

It is given to us that the tangent to the curve is parallel to each other

So, 3x² – 6x – 9 = 0

x² – 2x – 3 = 0

x² – 3x + x – 3 = 0

x( x – 3) + ( x – 3) = 0

( x – 3)(x + 1) = 0

x = 3, -1

Hence at x = 3, -1 the tangent to the curve is parallel to x-axis

Q8.Find a point on the curve y = (x – 2)² at which the tangent is parallel to the chord joining the points (2,0) and (4,4).

Ans.

Calculating the slope of tagent to the given curve, y = (x – 2)²

y = (x – 2)²

Slope of the chord joining the points (2,0) and (4,4) = m

We are given that the tangent is parallel to the given chord of the curve, so their slopes must be equal

2(x – 2) = 2

x = 3

Putting this value of x in the equation of the curve

y = (3 – 2)² = 1

Therefore the point on the given curve is (3,1) in which tangent is parallel to the given chord.

Q9. Find the point on the curve y = x³ – 11x + 5 at which the tangent is y = x -11.

Ans. The given curve is

y = x³ – 11x + 5

Finding its slope as following

= 3x² – 11

The slope of the given tangent y = x -11 is calculated as follows

The slope of the curve = Slope of the tangent

3x² – 11 = 1

x = ±2

If x = 2, then y = 2 – 11 = -9, if x = -2, then y= -2 -11 = -13

(-2,-13) does’t satisfy the equation of the curve so it does’t lie on the curve

The point (2, -9) satisfy the equation of the curve so the given tangent on the curve is at (2, -9)
