1. (20 points) Find a vector function that represents the curve C of intersection of the surface z 2 = x 2 + y 2 and the plane 2 z = 1+ y for z 0. Graph the curve and indicate the direction in which the curve C is traced as the parameter t increases from your parametrization of C. 2
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 πt, 2sin πt, cos πt i at the points t = 0 and t = 1 / 2 intersect. Lastly, ﬁnd the angle between the two lines.
