Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Locate the points given in polar coordinates by P 4 , 5 6 , Q 1 , 1 2 R 4 , 1 3 , among 2 4 2 4 2 4 2 4 1. P : Q : R : 2. P : Q : R : correct 3. P : Q : R : 4. P : Q : R : 5. P : Q : R : 6. P : Q : R : Explanation: To convert from polar coordinates to Carte sian coordinates we use x = r cos , y = r sin . For then the points P 4 , 5 6 , Q 1 , 1 2 R 4 , 1 3 , correspond to P : Q : R : in Cartesian coordinates. keywords: polar coordinates, Cartesian coor dinates, change of coordinates, 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the vector v having a representation by the directed line segment AB with respect to points A ( 1 , 1) and B (3 , 4). 1. v = h 4 , 3 i 2. v = h 2 , 5 i 3. v = h 2 , 5 i 4. v = h 2 , 5 i 5. v = h 4 , 3 i 6. v = h 4 , 3 i correct Explanation: Since AB = h 3 + 1 , 4 1 i , we see that v = h 4 , 3 i . keywords: vectors, directed line segment, 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Which one of the following could be the graph of the curve given parametrically by x ( t ) = t 3 1 , y ( t ) = 2 t 2 ? Gauthier, Joseph Exam 1 Due: Oct 2 2007, 11:00 pm Inst: JEGilbert 2 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. correct 6. Explanation: These examples illustrate the diversity of curves in 2space. But simple properties such as (i) behaviour as t , (ii) x and yintercepts, (iii) passing through the origin or not, (iv) symmetry (even or oddness), can often be used to determine which graph goes with which function. For instance, three of the graphs above lie within a square cen tered at the origin, suggesting that the other three are unbounded; on the other hand, only three pass through the origin; and some, but not all, have various symmetries such as even ness, oddness, or symmetry about a line. In the case of the curve given parametrically by x ( t ) = t 3 1 , y ( t ) = 2 t 2 , we see that lim t x ( t ) = lim t y ( t ) = . But only one of the graphs has these proper ties, leaving as the only possible graph. Gauthier, Joseph Exam 1 Due: Oct 2 2007, 11:00 pm Inst: JEGilbert 3 keywords: 2Dgraph, parametric function, limit at infinity, symmetry, periodicity 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of r = cos2 at = / 4. 1. slope = 1 2. slope = 1 correct 3. slope = 7 3 3 4. slope = 5 3 3 5. slope = 1 5 3 6. slope = 1 7 3 Explanation: The graph of a polar curve r = f ( ) can expressed by the parametric equations x = f ( )cos , y = f ( )sin ....
