2. (20 points) Let P1: 3 x + 2 y - z = 4 and P2: 2 x - 3 y + 4 z = 16 be 2 planes in R 3 . (a) Show that the planes are neither parallel nor perpendicular. (b) Find the equation of the line where the planes intersect. (c) Find the angle between the two planes. (You may use the back of this sheet if additional space is needed.) 3

(c) Find the equation of the plane containing the point (1,1,0) in the direction of the tangent line to C at (1 , 1 , 0). e.g. the tangent vector to C at (1,1,0) determines the direction of the plane. Such a plane is called the Normal Plane to the curve C . 4 4. (20 points) Do as indicated (a) Find a vector perpendicular to the plane containing the points A (1 , , 0), B (2 , ,-1), and C (1 , 4 , 3). (b) Find the area of triangle ABC . 5 5. (20 points) Determine the point where the tangent lines to the curve r ( t ) = h sin t, 2sin t, cos t i at the points t = 0 and t = 1 / 2 intersect. Lastly, nd the angle between the two lines.
