Unformatted text preview: Problem 1. [ 8 points. ] Consider the vectors v = i + 2 j , w = 3 i- j . (i) [3 points] Draw the two vectors v and w in standard position, and draw their sum v + w . (ii) [2 points] Compute the vector 2 v + 3 w . (iii) [3 points] Find the unit vector u in the direction of w . Answer: (i) The vector v + w in standard position joins the origin to the vertex of the parallel- ogram spanned by v and w . (ii) We have 2 v + 3 w = 2( i + 2 j ) + 3(3 i- j ) = 11 i + j . (iii) We have u = w || w || = 3 i- j p 3 2 + (- 1) 2 = 3 10 i- 1 10 j . Problem 2. [10 points.] Consider the function f ( x,y ) = ( x- 1) 2 + ( y- 1) 2 . (i) [5 points] Draw the contour diagram for f ( x,y ) and clearly label the level curves. Show the con- tours for at least three levels. (ii) [5 points] Draw the graph of z = f ( x,y ) . Answer: (i) The contour diagram consists in circles centered at (1 , 1) of radius c where c is the level. For instance, for levels c = 1 , c = 4 , c = 9 , we draw three circles of center...
