For a fish swimming at a speed v relative to the water, the energy expenditure per unit time is proportional to v3. It is believed that migrating
fish try to minimize the total energy required to swim a fixed distance. If the fish are swimming against a current u (u < v), then the time
required to swim a distance L is L / (v u) and the total energy E required to swim the distance is given by
L
vu
where a is the proportionality constant.
E(v) = av3

(a) Determine the value of v that minimizes E. Note: This result has been verified experimentally.
v=
\$\$32u

## (b) Sketch the graph of E.
