Name: Math 211A Fall 2005 Exam # 1 Honor Code Write and sign the honor code here after you have finished the quiz. There will be no calculators allowed during the exam. You may use a 3x5 inch note card. Use full sentences on all explanations and put a box around your final answer. Good Luck!! 1. True or False (2 points each) a. The intersection of two surfaces is always a line. b. The area of a parallelogram with sides ~a and ~ b is given by | ~a · ~ b | . c. For any vectors ~a and ~ b , we have ~a · ( ~a × ~ b ) = 0. d. The graph of f ( x, y ) = x + y sin x is a space curve. e. Suppose r ( s ) defines a vector function which is parametrized by arclength. Then Z 1 0 | r 0 ( s ) | ds = Z 2 1 | r 0 ( s ) | ds .
