Cylinder in Ellipsoid Problem: The ellipse x2 + 4y2 = 4 is rotated about the x-axis to form an ellipsoid. A cylinder is inscribed in the ellipsoid, with its axis along the x-axis. The right base of the cylinder touches the ellipse at the sample point (x, y) in the first quadrant. Sketch the ellipsoid and the cylinder. Then plot the volume of the cylinder as a function of x. Sketch the graph. Find the value of x that maximizes the volume of the cylinder, and find this maximum volume.

Week two Day 4 Sex-linked inheritance and human pedigree analysis Aneuploidy and chromosome abnormalities Chromosome segregation through meiosis accounts for mendels equal segregation law of parent alleles This creates 4 haploid gametes Aneuploidy is a nondisjunction that results in chromosome number abnormalities So half of the gametes may end up with more or less chromosome than normal Down syndrome is an example x-linked inheritance How does this trait behave In an experiment on fly eye color (w+ for red eyes [dominant] and w for white eyes) A pure gene white eyed male fly crossed with a pure red eyed female F1 all heterozygous for red eyes
