Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Hint: Try to write the length of the tangent vector as a perfect square. Find the arc length of the curve r ( t ) = (3 + 2 t ) i + e t j + (5 + e t ) k between r (0) and r (7). 1. arc length = ( e 7 e 7 ) 2 2. arc length = ( e 7 + e 7 ) 2 3. arc length = e 7 e 7 correct 4. arc length = e 7 + e 7 5. arc length = 2 e 7 6. arc length = 2 e 7 Explanation: The length of a curve r ( t ) between r ( t ) and r ( t 1 ) is given by the integral L = integraldisplay t 1 t | r ( t ) | dt . Now when r ( t ) = (3 + 2 t ) i + e t j + (5 + e t ) k , we see that r ( t ) = 2 i + e t e t . But then | r ( t ) | = (2 + e 2 t + e 2 t ) 1 / 2 = e t + e t . Thus L = integraldisplay 7 ( e t + e t ) dt = bracketleftBig e t e t bracketrightBig 7 . Consequently, arc length = L = e 7 e 7 . 002 10.0 points Find the arc length of the curve r ( t ) = (3 2 t ) i + ln(4 t ) j + (4 t 2 ) k between r (1) and r (2). 1. arc length = 2 + ln 8 2. arc length = 3 ln 2 3. arc length = 8 ln 2 4. arc length = 3 4 ln2 5. arc length = 4 + 4 ln2 6. arc length = 3 + ln 2 correct Explanation: The length of a curve r ( t ) between r ( t ) and r ( t 1 ) is given by the integral L = integraldisplay t 1 t | r ( t ) | dt . Now when r ( t ) = (3 2 t ) i + ln(4 t ) j + (4 t 2 ) k we see that r ( t ) = 2 i + 1 t j + 2 t k . But then | r ( t ) | = parenleftBig 4 + 1 t 2 + 4 t 2 parenrightBig 1 / 2 = 2 t 2 + 1 t . Thus L = integraldisplay 2 1 parenleftBig 2 t + 1 t parenrightBig dt = bracketleftBig t 2 + ln t bracketrightBig 2 1 . Consequently, arc length = L = 3 + ln2 . patino (mp25752) Assignment8 luecke (57510) 2 003 10.0 points Find the arc length of the curve r ( t ) = ( sin2 t, 6 t, cos 2 t ) between r (0) and r (3). 1. arc length = 3 37 2. arc length = 3 39 3. arc length = 3 38 4. arc length = 6 10 correct 5. arc length = 18 Explanation: The length of the curve r ( t ) between r ( t ) and r ( t 1 ) is given by the integral L = integraldisplay t 1 t | r ( t ) | dt ....
