Calculus III Assignment 4 Due on Friday Oct. 12 1. (a) Find the vector normal to the plane through the points P (1 , - 1 , 0) , Q (2 , 1 , - 1) and R ( - 1 , 1 , 2). (b) Find the area of the triangle formed by the above three points. 2. Find the equation of the plane passing through the line of intersection of the two planes x + y = 2, y - z = 3 and which is perpendicular to the plane 2 x + 3 y + 4 z = 5. 3. Find the unit tangent vector, the principal normal, the curvature and the arc length of the curve over the interval 1 t 2, for the plane curve R = 2 ln t i - ± 1 t + t j . Find the equation of the circle of curvature when
