Circle the name of your TA: WU TONEJ C 3. Closed book. Closed notes. Calculators allowed. No laptops. 4. 2 index cards of size 3” X 5” with formulas allowed. 5. Answer your questions on the exam paper. There are some extra pages in the back if you need them. ’ 6. Show all your work. Partial credit is given only if your work is clear. 7. Enclose your final answers clearly in a rectangle. 8. Time allowed: 70 minutes for your work, plus5 minutes for checking your . answers. ’ Problem 1 Problem 4 -| Problem 6 20 Problem 7 20 NAME (print): Problem 1. A particle is moving downwards along the helix r(t) 2 3 cos(2t)i + 3 sin(2t)j — tk. (a) Compute the velocity V and the acceleration a of the particle. (b) How far does the particle travel along its path from t = 0 to t = 27f? (c) Find the unit tangent vector T and the unit normal vector N and compute the angle between Tand N. ‘ (d) Compute the curvature a and the radius of the curvature. What can you say about K)? ' NAME (print): Problem 2. Find and graph the osculating circle (Le. the circle of curvature) for the parabola P:33=1—y2 at the point of intersection of P with the x-axis. NAME (print): Problem 3. If capacitors of Cl, 02 and C3 microfarads are connected in series to make a C—microfarad capacitor, the value of C can be found from the equation i_1+1+1 0—0102 03' Find the value of 815; when 01 = 8, 02 = 12 and C3 = 24 microfarads. NAME (print): Problem 4. Find the extreme. values of f (:c,y) : x2 + 3y2 + 2y on the unit circle 51:2 + 3/2 = 1. NAME (print): M Problem 5. Find the equation of the tangent plane and the normal line for the surface 5' given by x2 — 33,2 — 2522 = —11 at the point p = (1, ~52, 0). 2'1} NAME (print): Problem 6. Find all critical points for f(a:,y) = 2:134 — 43:2 +y’2 +23; and indicate Whether each point is a local maximum, local minimum or a saddle point. NAME (print): Problem 7. Let _ f($,y) = :62 +y2 ~ 4- (a) Sketch the level sets f(a:,y) = k for k = —4, ~3, O and 5. (b) Sketch the graph of z =, f(x, (c) Find a unit vector V, in the direction in which f (as, y) decreases most rapidly at the point p = (1, —2\/§). What is the rate of change in this direction? Sketch the vector V at the point p on the graph in part (a). What do you observe? ’ ...
