Unformatted text preview: t = 1 . 2. Does the curve defned by the polar equation r = sec + tan intersect the vertical line x = 2 ? Explain. 3. Suppose a particle is moving in 3-dimensional space so that its position vector is r ( t ) = a t, t 2 , 1 t A . (a) Find the tangential component of the particles acceleration vector at time t = 1 . (b) Find all values of t at which the particles velocity vector is orthogonal to the parti-cles acceleration vector. 4. Consider the curve in the xy-plane defned by the position vector Function r ( t ) = a t 2 3 t, t 2 + 2 t A ind the t-value oF the point oF maximum curvature on this curve. 5.
