Formulas for Final Polar coordinates: x = r cos θ,y = r sin θ,r 2 = x 2 + y 2 , tan θ = y/x Identity satisfied by angle between two vectors: a · b = | a || b | cos θ Vector projection of b onto a: proj a ( b ) = b · a | a | a | a | The component of b in the direction of a: comp a ( b ) = b · a | a | Cross product: a 1 ,a 2 ,a 3 × b 1 ,b 2 ,b 3 = ( a 2 b 3 a 3 b 2 ) i +( a 3 b 1 a 1 b 3 ) j +( a 1 b 2 a 2 b 1 ) k The area of the parallelogram with a and b as edges is | a × b | Arclength: of the curve defined by vector function r ( t ), a t b , is L = b a | r ( t ) | dt Gradient: f ( x,y ) = f x ( x,y ) ,f y ( x,y ) Chain Rule: Case 1 : d dt F ( x ( t ) ,y ( t )) = ∂F ∂x dx dt + ∂F ∂y dy dt Case 2: If z = f ( x,y ) where x = g ( s,t ) and y = h ( s,t ), then ∂z ∂s = ∂z ∂x ∂x ∂s + ∂z ∂y ∂y ∂s ∂z ∂t = ∂z ∂x ∂x ∂t + ∂z ∂y ∂y ∂t Directional Derivative: In direction of unit vector u = a,b : D u f ( x,y ) = f x ( x,y ) a + f y ( x,y ) b Tangent plane: Tangent plane to surface z = f ( x,y ) at point ( x 0 ,y 0 ,z 0 ) is z z 0 = f x ( x 0 ,y 0 )( x x 0 ) + f y ( x 0 ,y 0 )( y y 0 ) .

    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.
