Math 223 – Vector Calculus Practice Exam 1 Author: Arlo Caine Name: Solutions Directions: Read all questions carefully. Use a pencil and erase all unnecessary marks. Show all of your work in the space provided and display your answer on the line given if requested. You will lose points if you make an approximation and fail to indicate the approximation. Be careful to use proper notation to indicate vector versus scalar quantities as well. 1. Determine whether the following are true or false (T or F). You do not need to give your reasons. (a) T Two contours of f ( x, y ) with di ff erent heights never intersect. (b) T There is only one point in the yz -plane that is a distance 3 from the point (3 , 0 , 0). (c) T The graphs of f ( x, y ) = sin( xy ) and f ( x, y ) = sin( xy ) + 2 do not intersect. (d) T There is no linear function whose graph is a plane parallel to the xz -plane. (e) T The vectors 3 i - 2 j - 4 k and - 39 i + 26 j + 52 k are parallel. (f) T The quantity (( b × a ) · c ) a is a vector. (g) F If v and w are any two vectors then v + w = v + w . 2. Match the graph with the contour diagram.

3. You are in a room 30 feet long with a heater at one end. In the morning the room is 65 F. You turn on the heater, which quickly warms the room up to 85 F. Let H ( x, t ) be the temperature x feet from the heater, t minutes after the heater is turned on. The figure shows the contour diagram for H .

### What students are saying

• 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.
