This is closed book, closed notes exam. Use of calculators and other electronic devices is not permitted. Question Points Score 1 12 2 6 3 10 4 8 5 8 6 6 Total: 50 Multiple Choice No partial credit! 1. Circle the correct answer for each question. (a) (4 points) French mathematician Alexis Claude de Clairault (5/3/1713 5/17/1765): A. Was born on May 3, 1713. B. Died on May 17, 1765. C. Was a French mathematician. D. All of the above! D (but the other three are also correct). (b) (4 points) Let C be the curve parametrized by r ( t ) = h 3 cos( t ) ,, 3 sin( t ) i for 0 t , then Z C ds equals: A. 2 B. 3 C. 6 D. None of the above B: The curve is a semicircle of radius 3, so its length Z C ds is 3 . (c) (4 points) If C is the piece of the hyperbola xy = from (1 / 2 , 2 ) to (2 ,/ 2), then Z C e x sin( y ) dx + e x cos( y ) dy equals: A. e 2 B. e C. 2 D. None of the above A: ( e x sin( y )) = h e x sin( y ) ,e x cos( y ) i , so the integral is e 2 sin( / 2) e 1 / 2 sin(2 ) = e 2 by the Fundamental Theorem for Line Integrals....
