Total. ____(100) NAME (print): 1) Consider the function 1 2 ﬂay) = w2  1y (a) In the my plane sketch carefully the level curves of the function for f=mf=—Lf=—4 (b) Sketch the quadric surface :52 + ﬁyi‘ + z = O. NAME (print): (c) What is the relation between your sketch for (a) and the sketch for
(b)? ((1) Write the equation for the quadric surface of part (b) in spherical
coordinates in the form p = 9(6, ¢>). ' NAME (print): 2) If the velocity of a moving particle is given by v(t) = e‘ cos(t) i + etsin(t) j + x/get k. (a) Find the acceleration a(t). (b) Find the unit tangent T(t), the unit normal N(t) and the curvature Mt). NAME (print): (0) What is 3(t), the distance travelled along the curve as a function of
t? Assume that at t = O, s = 2. (d) Using your answers from part (b) and (c) verify the relation: dT_ jig—EN. NAME (print): 3) Consider the function {E f(w,y) = x2 _ yz'
(a) What is lim ?
(m,y)—*(1,1)f (b) Find V f . What is the direction of steepest decrease of f at (17 0)? (c) Find Dj f at the point (0, 1). Flom the result, what can you say about
the level curve of f at (0, 1)? NAME (print): 4) Find the following limits, or Show that they do not exist. (a)
