Problem 47 Hard Difficulty

(a) Find the intervals of increase or decrease.
(b) Find the local maximum and minimum values.
(c) Find the intervals of concavity and the inflection points.
(d) Use the information from parts $ (a) - (c) $ to sketch the graph.
Check your work with a graphing device if you have one.

$ f(\theta) = 2 \cos \theta + \cos^2 \theta $, $ 0 \leqslant \theta \leqslant 2\pi $


(a) $f(\theta)=2 \cos \theta+\cos ^{2} \theta, 0 \leq \theta \leq 2 \pi \Rightarrow f^{\prime}(\theta)=-2 \sin \theta+2 \cos \theta(-\sin \theta)=-2 \sin \theta(1+\cos \theta)$
$f^{\prime}(\theta)=0 \Leftrightarrow \theta=0, \pi,$ and $2 \pi . f^{\prime}(\theta)>0 \Leftrightarrow \pi<\theta<2 \pi$ and $f^{\prime}(\theta)<0 \Leftrightarrow 0<\theta<\pi .$ So $f$ is increasing
on $(\pi, 2 \pi)$ and $f$ is decreasing on $(0, \pi)$
(b) $f(\pi)=-1$ is a local minimum value.
(c) $f^{\prime}(\theta)=-2 \sin \theta(1+\cos \theta) \Rightarrow$
f^{\prime \prime}(\theta) &=-2 \sin \theta(-\sin \theta)+(1+\cos \theta)(-2 \cos \theta)=2 \sin ^{2} \theta-2 \cos \theta-2 \cos ^{2} \theta \\
&=2\left(1-\cos ^{2} \theta\right)-2 \cos \theta-2 \cos ^{2} \theta=-4 \cos ^{2} \theta-2 \cos \theta+2 \\
&=-2\left(2 \cos ^{2} \theta+\cos \theta-1\right)=-2(2 \cos \theta-1)(\cos \theta+1) \\
\text { since }-2(\cos \theta+1)<0 &[\text { for } \theta \neq \pi], f^{\prime \prime}(\theta)>0 \Rightarrow 2 \cos \theta-1<0 \Rightarrow \cos \theta<\frac{1}{2} \Rightarrow \frac{\pi}{3}<\theta<\frac{5 \pi}{3} \text { and } \theta
$f^{\prime \prime}(\theta)<0 \Rightarrow \cos \theta>\frac{1}{2} \Rightarrow 0<\theta<\frac{\pi}{3}$ or $\frac{5 \pi}{3}<\theta<2 \pi .$ So $f$ is $\mathrm{CU}$ on $\left(\frac{\pi}{3}, \frac{5 \pi}{3}\right)$ and $f$ is $\mathrm{CD}$ on $\left(0, \frac{\pi}{3}\right)$ and
$\left(\frac{5 \pi}{3}, 2 \pi\right) .$ There are points of inflection at $\left(\frac{\pi}{3}, f\left(\frac{\pi}{3}\right)\right)=\left(\frac{\pi}{3}, \frac{5}{4}\right)$ and $\left(\frac{5 \pi}{3}, f\left(\frac{5 \pi}{3}\right)\right)=\left(\frac{5 \pi}{3}, \frac{5}{4}\right)$

the problem is off part a. Finding intervals of increase our decrease. So, for part of a take derivative, which is equal to two times negative sign data US truth hams consign Vienna. I'm selective Sign later, which is equal to negative two hands. Sign Holmes Juan plus call Sign data. If we liked after prom, it's equal to zero. With half they die. It's equal to pi war zero war You high on behalf as Interval zero to pie Behalf. Prom is negative. So after Max is increasing as interval high, too high prom thiss greetings and zero. So the function ofthe secrecy increases how to be find the local maximum and minimum values from part a half. At that point, actually hard to pie function ofthe has a local minimal value. No, which is the next one? Hard to see. Find the intervals of conductivity and inflection points. So first, the computer Second degenerative, which is equal to negative two pounds co sign Data Ham's one plus call Sign us two hams sign they scored. If we replace scientist the squire, buy one minus consign Peter Stoy. So behalf. This is equally true. Negative two times to co sign They the squire Ask coastline Fada minus Juan, which is a connective Two times Cool sign. Bina Lost one has truth house Cool sign Better minus one we can find as into a well zero two pi over three. Second derivative. It's negative. So the function come kills. So on the interval high over three two while pie over three narrative Islam inactive. So the function come curves up under into a file pie. Over three, two too high. The second narrative is active. There's a function can care of star how to be Use the information from pass to see sketch the graph so we can scratch the glove as follows You know hi will part give you three and make you one over half. So, like this this is a graph of function half a box This is a local minimum value back to one and by using some graphing the wise and so graph for the function is as follows from zero to too high
