Math 192 Prelim 1, Feb. 21, 2006 Calculators are not allowed. Write your section number and TA’s name on the front of your workbook. This exam is worth 100 points. Point values for each problem are in parentheses. 1. Let u = - 2 i + 4 j - k and v = 2 i + 3 j - 6 k be two vectors in 3-space. a) (5) Find the angle between u and v. b) (4) Find a vector w of magnitude 5 units in the direction opposite to that of u + v. c) (4) Let u , v , and w be arbitrary vectors. Answer as True or False. (No reasons needed.) i) If u x v = u x w and u = 0, then v = w. ii) If u = 0 , u x v = u x w and u · v = u · w , then v = w. 2. a) (8) Find the line of intersection of the planes 2 x - y + 3 z = 4 and - x + y + 2 z = 1. Then find the plane perpendicular to this line and containing the point (5 , 6 , - 3) . b) (6) Find the distance between the two planes 2 x + 3 y - z = 4 and 2 x + 3 y - z = 9 . 3. Let r ( t ) = (cos t + t sin t ) i + (sin t - t cos t ) j be the position vector of a moving particle. a) (5) Find the length of the curve between t = π 2 and t = π.

### 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.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• 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.
