Step 1

Given:

Step 2

Calculation: help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseTo find W (h): For that, we have to integrate equation (1) with respect to h, dh= [(0.0018h² ) dh +C, Using [x"dx 3 fx'dx W (h) = 0.0018 %3D n+1 W (h) = 0.0006h +C...(2),(C is an integrating constant) fullscreen
Step 3 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseGiven that, W (60) =109.6 pounds Substitute h = 60 in equation (2), we get W (60) = 0.0006(60)' +C =109.6 0.0006 (60) +C =109.6 129.6 +C = 109.6 C =109.6–129.6 C =-20 fullscreen
