Math 10C Second Midterm 40 points November 17, 2004 Write version on your blue book VERSION A Put your name, ID number, and section number (or time) on your blue book. You may have ONE 2-sided page of notes. NO CALCULATORS are allowed. You must show your work to receive credit. 1. (12 points) The table at the bottom of this page gives wave heights ( w ) in feet produced by various wind speeds ( s in knots) blowing for various lengths of time ( t ) in hours. Thus we have a table of some values of w ( s, t ). (a) Estimate w (50 , 15) = a w s (50 , 15) , w t (50 , 15) A . (b) What are the units of each of these partial derivatives? (For example — but wrong — knots per hour.) (c) Estimate the wave height when a wind of 51 knots has been blowing for 14 hours. You can leave arithmetic like (27 / 4) × 3 1 in your answer. (Of course, this is not the answer.) 2. (12 points) Compute the indicated derivatives. (a) f (1) given that f ( t ) = g ( x ( t ) , y ( t )), g (5 , 0) = 4, g (1 , 1) = 3,

(b) ∂f x ( x, y ) ∂y given that f ( x, y ) = x sin 2 ( e x ) + xy 2 . (c) D u f (1 , 0) given that f ( x, y ) = x 2 +2 xy and u is a unit vector in the same direction as a 2 , 1 A . 3. (8 points) Find the equation of the tangent plane to the surface 2 x 2 + 3 y 2 + z 2 = 21 at the point (1 , − 1 , 4). 4. (8 points) Find the local maxima, local minima and saddle points of the function f ( x, y ) = x 2 + y 2 − x 2 y +3. To help you with your calculations, the critical points are at (0 , 0), ( √ 2 , 1) and ( − √ 2 , 1).
