Unformatted text preview: Quiz 1 1. Describe fully the geometry of the surface or region in R3 given by the set of points (1:, y, 2) satisfying the equation a72+y2+22+32=4x. Show that the intersection of this geornetric object With the plane 2 = —l is a circle, and determine its centre and radius. Solution: We rearrange and complete the square: 172—4a:+y2+22+32=0 3 2 9 25 5 2 this is a sphere with centre at (2,0, —3/2) and radius 5/2. Substituting 2 = —1 into the original equation gives 1:2 —— 3/2 +1— 3 = 41:, or :52—4:c+y2=2 => (:v—2)2——y2=2+4=6, which in the gay—coordinates represents a circle centred at (a:,y) = (2,0) and with radius x/é. In three dimensions, it is a circle lying in the plane 2 = —l, with centre (a:,y,2) = (2,0, —1) and radius x/E. 2. Find the unit vectors that are parallel to the tangent line to the parabola y = \$2 at the point (2, 4). Solution: The slope of the tangent line to the curve 3/ = 1:2 is found by taking the derivative; thus . change in y the tangent line at a: = 2 has slope 29119,:2 = 4 = —. . change In a: Two vectors parallel to the tangent line are (1,4) and —(1,4> = (—1,—4>. To find the corresponding unit vectors, we divide by the magnitude v12 + 42 = V17- Hence we find: Two unit vectors parallel to the tangent line are ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
