1. (a) Let f ( x, y ) = y 2 cos( xy ) + 2 - ln y . Find f x . f x = - y 3 sin( xy ) (b) For z = y x 2 , sketch several level curves. 2

2. (a) Find the arc length of the curve r ( t ) = 2 sin t i +5 t j +2 cos t k for 0 t 1 Since r ( t ) = 2 cos t i + 5 j - 2 sin t k , we have | r ( t ) | = 4 cos 2 t + 25 + 4 sin 2 t = 29 . So the arc length is 1 0 29 dt = 29 . (b) Consider a particle moving in space with the following position vector. x ( t ) = e t i + 2 t j + t 2 k . Find the acceleration a ( t ). a ( t ) = x ( t ) = e t i + 2 k . 3

3. Show that the following limit does not exist. lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) sin 2 x x 2 + y Along the path x = 0, the limit is lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) sin 2 x x 2 + y = lim y 0 0 0 + y = 0 . But along the path y = 0, the limit is lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) sin 2 x x 2 + y = lim x 0 sin 2 x x 2 = lim x 0 sin x x 2 = 1 . So the two limits do not match up and hence the limit does not exist. 4

    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.
