We now study functions whose values arevectors because such functions are needed to describe curvesand surfaces in space. We will also use vectorvalued functionsto describe the motion of objects through space. In particular,we will use them to derive Keplers laws of planetary motion. 14.1Vector Functions and Space CurvesIn general, a function is a rule that assigns to each element in the domain an element in therange. A vectorvalued function, or vector function, is simply a function whose domainis a set of real numbers and whose range is a set of vectors. We are most interested in vector functions r whose values are threedimensional vectors. This means that for every number t in the domain of r there is a unique vector in V3 denoted by r t . If f t , t t , and h tare the components of the vector r t , then f , t, and h are realvalued functions called thecomponent functions of r and we can writertf t ,t t ,h tftitt jht kWe use the letter t to denote the independent variable because it represents time in mostapplications of vector functions.EXAMPLE 1 Ift 3, ln 3rtt , stthen the component functions areftt3ttln 3thtstBy our usual convention, the domain of r consists of all values of t for which the expression for r t is dened. The expressions t 3, ln 3 t , and st are all dened when3 t 0 and t 0. Therefore, the domain of r is the interval 0, 3 .The limit of a vector function r is dened by taking the limits of its component functions as follows.1 If lim t l a r tL, this denition is equivalent to saying that the length and direction of thevector r t approach the length and direction ofthe vector L.If r tf t , t t , h t , thenlim r ttlalim f t , lim t t , lim h ttlatlatlaprovided the limits of the component functions exist.Equivalently, we could have used an  denition (see Exercise 43). Limits of vectorfunctions obey the same rules as limits of realvalued functions (see Exercise 41).8855E14(pp 884893)8861/18/0611:47 AMPage 886CHAPTER 14 VECTOR FUNCTIONSEXAMPLE 2 Find lim r t , where r tt3 i1tl0sin tk.tte t jSOLUTION According to Denition 1, the limit of r is the vector whose components are thelimits of the component functions of r :lim r tt3lim 1tl0tl0ikilim tetjtl0limtl0sin tkt(by Equation 3.5.2)A vector function r is continuous at a iflim r tratlazP { f(t), g(t), h(t)}In view of Denition 1, we see that r is continuous at a if and only if its component functions f , t, and h are continuous at a.There is a close connection between continuous vector functions and space curves.Suppose that f , t, and h are continuous realvalued functions on an interval I . Then the setC of all points x, y, z in space, whereCx20r(t)=k f(t), g(t), h(t)lxyF IGURE 1C is traced out by the tip of a movingposition vector r(t).ftyztthtand t varies throughout the interval I , is called a space curve. The equations in (2) arecalled parametric equations of C and t is called a parameter. We can think of C as beingtraced out by a moving particle whose position at time t is f t , t t , h t . If we now conf t , t t , h t , then r t is the position vector of thesider the vector function r tpoint P f t , t t , h t on C. Thus, any continuous vector function r denes a space curveC that is traced out by the tip of the moving vector r t , as shown in Figure 1.EXAMPLE 3 Describe the curve dened by the vector functionrtVisual 14.1A shows several curves beingtraced out by position vectors, includingthose in Figures 1 and 2.1t, 25t,16tSOLUTION The corresponding parametric equations arex1ty2z5t16twhich we recognize from Equations 13.5.2 as parametric equations of a line passingthrough the point 1, 2, 1 and parallel to the vector 1, 5, 6 . Alternatively, we could1, 2, 1 andobserve that the function can be written as r r0 t v, where r0v1, 5, 6 , and this is the vector equation of a line as given by Equation 13.5.1.Plane curves can also be represented in vector notation. For instance, the curve givenby the parametric equations x t 2 2 t and y t 1 (see Example 1 in Section 11.1)could also be described by the vector equationrtwhere i1, 0 and jt22 t, t1t22t i0, 1 .EXAMPLE 4 Sketch the curve whose vector equation isrtcos t isin t jtkt1j5E14(pp 884893)1/18/0611:47 AMPage 887SECTION 14.1 VECTOR FUNCTIONS AND SPACE CURVES887S OLUTION The parametric equations for this curve arexcos tyzsin ttSince x 2 y 2 cos 2t sin 2t 1, the curve must lie on the circular cylinderx 2 y 2 1. The point x, y, z lies directly above the point x, y, 0 , which movescounterclockwise around the circle x 2 y 2 1 in the x yplane. (See Example 2 inSection 11.1.) Since z t, the curve spirals upward around the cylinder as t increases.The curve, shown in Figure 2, is called a helix.z 0, 1, 2 F IGURE 2xy(1, 0, 0)The corkscrew shape of the helix in Example 4 is familiar from its occurrence in coiledsprings. It also occurs in the model of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, the genetic materialof living cells). In 1953 James Watson and Francis Crick showed that the structure of theDNA molecule is that of two linked, parallel helices that are intertwined as in Figure 3.In Examples 3 and 4 we were given vector equations of curves and asked for a geometric description or sketch. In the next two examples we are given a geometric description of a curve and are asked to nd parametric equations for the curve.EXAMPLE 5 Find a vector equation and parametric equations for the line segment thatjoins the point P 1, 3, 2 to the point Q 2, 1, 3 .FIGURE 3 Figure 4 shows the line segment PQ inExample 5.SOLUTION In Section 13.5 we found a vector equation for the line segment that joins thetip of the vector r 0 to the tip of the vector r 1:rt1t r0tr10t1z(See Equation 13.5.4.)

The arrows in Figure 6 indicatethe direction in which C is traced as the parameter t increases.Using Computers to Draw Space CurvesSpace curves are inherently more difcult to draw by hand than plane curves; for an accurate representation we need to use technology. For instance, Figure 7 shows a computergenerated graph of the curve with parametric equationsx4sin 20 t cos ty4sin 20 t sin tzcos 20 tIts called a toroidal spiral because it lies on a torus. Another interesting curve, the tre5E14(pp 884893)1/18/0611:47 AMPage 889S ECTION 14.1 VECTOR FUNCTIONS AND SPACE CURVES889foil knot, with equationsx2cos 1.5t cos ty2cos 1.5t sin tzsin 1.5tis graphed in Figure 8. It wouldnt be easy to plot either of these curves by hand.zzxyyxFIGURE 7 A toroidal spiralFIGURE 8 A trefoil knotEven when a computer is used to draw a space curve, optical illusions make it difcultto get a good impression of what the curve really looks like. (This is especially true inFigure 8. See Exercise 42.) The next example shows how to cope with this problem.t, t 2, t 3 .EXAMPLE 7 Use a computer to sketch the curve with vector equation r tThis curve is called a twisted cubic.SOLUTION We start by using the computer to plot the curve with parametric equationsx t, y t 2, z t 3 for 2 t 2. The result is shown in Figure 9(a), but its hard tosee the true nature of the curve from that graph alone. Most threedimensional computergraphing programs allow the user to enclose a curve or surface in a box instead of displaying the coordinate axes. When we look at the same curve in a box in Figure 9(b), wehave a much clearer picture of the curve. We can see that it climbs from a lower cornerof the box to the upper corner nearest us, and it twists as it climbs.z6_266z0x2_64z0_602_2yy20x(a)024_6(b)84z0z01_4_423_24_80x2y0x8_1142(c)_20y24(d)FIGURE 9 Views of the twisted cubic210x(e)_1_2_8012y(f )345E14(pp 884893)8901/18/0611:47 AMPage 890CHAPTER 14 VECTOR FUNCTIONSIn Visual 14.1B you can rotate the boxin Figure 9 to see the curve from anyviewpoint.zxyWe get an even better idea of the curve when we view it from different vantagepoints. Part (c) shows the result of rotating the box to give another viewpoint. Parts (d),(e), and (f) show the views we get when we look directly at a face of the box. In particular, part (d) shows the view from directly above the box. It is the projection of thecurve on the xyplane, namely, the parabola y x 2. Part (e) shows the projection on thex zplane, the cubic curve z x 3. Its now obvious why the given curve is called atwisted cubic.Another method of visualizing a space curve is to draw it on a surface. For instance, thetwisted cubic in Example 7 lies on the parabolic cylinder y x 2. (Eliminate the parameter from the rst two parametric equations, x t and y t 2.) Figure 10 shows both thecylinder and the twisted cubic, and we see that the curve moves upward from the originalong the surface of the cylinder. We also used this method in Example 4 to visualize thehelix lying on the circular cylinder (see Figure 2).A third method for visualizing the twisted cubic is to realize that it also lies on the cylinder z x 3. So it can be viewed as the curve of intersection of the cylinders y x 2 andz x 3. (See Figure 11.)FIGURE 1084zVisual 14.1C shows how curves ariseas intersections of surfaces.0_4_8_1FIGURE 11 Some computer algebra systems provide uswith a clearer picture of a space curve by enclosing it in a tube. Such a plot enables us to seewhether one part of a curve passes in front of orbehind another part of the curve. For example,Figure 13 shows the curve of Figure 12(b) as rendered by the tubeplot command in Maple.Bx01024yWe have seen that an interesting space curve, the helix, occurs in the model of DNA.Another notable example of a space curve in science is the trajectory of a positivelycharged particle in orthogonally oriented electric and magnetic elds E and B. Dependingon the initial velocity given the particle at the origin, the path of the particle is either aspace curve whose projection on the horizontal plane is the cycloid we studied in Section11.1 [Figure 12(a)] or a curve whose projection is the trochoid investigated in Exercise 38in Section 11.1 [Figure 12(b)].BEEt(a) r(t) = ktsin t, 1cos t, t lt33(b) r(t) = kt 2 sin t, 1 2 cos t, t lFIGURE 12Motion of a charged particle in orthogonally oriented electric and magnetic fieldsFIGURE 135E14(pp 884893)1/18/0611:47 AMPage 891SECTION 14.1 VECTOR FUNCTIONS AND SPACE CURVES891For further details concerning the physics involved and animations of the trajectories ofthe particles, see the following web sites:12Exercises1. r tt 2, st2. r ttt36cos t,ysin t,zcos t,ysin t,zln tcos 10 t,yezsin 10t,zI4. limett1 s1,5. lim st6. limtltzII,3xyxtan tkt1j1tIII1ln ttarctan t , e 2t,1ttt23itl1zzyxx7. r tt41, t8. r t9. r tt, cos 2 t, sin 2 t10. r t11. r tyIVSketch the curve with the given vector equation.

Then use the computer to draw the curve from severalother viewpoints. You can get a better impression of the curveif you plot a tube with radius 0.2 around the curve.

Here we prepare the way by developing the calculusof vector functions.DerivativesThe derivative r of a vector function r is dened in much the same way as for realvalued functions:5E14(pp 884893)1/18/0611:47 AMPage 893SECTION 14.2 DERIVATIVES AND INTEGRALS OF VECTOR FUNCTIONSdrdt1rtlimrthhhl0893rtif this limit exists. The geometric signicance of this denition is shown in Figure 1. If thelpoints P and Q have position vectors r t and r t h , then PQ represents the vectorrt hr t , which can therefore be regarded as a secant vector. If h 0, the scalarmultiple 1 h r t hr t has the same direction as r t hr t . As h l 0, itappears that this vector approaches a vector that lies on the tangent line. For this reason,the vector r t is called the tangent vector to the curve dened by r at the point P, provided that r t exists and r t0. The tangent line to C at P is dened to be the linethrough P parallel to the tangent vector r t .

We say thatEquations 4 and 5 are parametrizations of the curve C. If we were to use Equation 3 tocompute the length of C using Equations 4 and 5, we would get the same answer. In general, it can be shown that when Equation 3 is used to compute the length of any piecewisesmooth curve, the arc length is independent of the parametrization that is used.Now we suppose that C is a piecewisesmooth curve given by a vector functionrtf t i t t j h t k, a t b, and C is traversed exactly once as t increasesfrom a to b.

If we differentiate both sides of Equation 6 using Part 1 of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, weobtaindsrt7dtIt is often useful to parametrize a curve with respect to arc length because arc lengtharises naturally from the shape of the curve and does not depend on a particular coordinatesystem. If a curve r t is already given in terms of a parameter t and s t is the arc lengthfunction given by Equation 6, then we may be able to solve for t as a function of s: t t s .Then the curve can be reparametrized in terms of s by substituting for t : r r t s . Thus,if s 3 for instance, r t 3 is the position vector of the point 3 units of length along thecurve from its starting point.5E14(pp 894903)9001/18/0612:41 PMPage 900CHAPTER 14 VECTOR FUNCTIONSE XAMPLE 2 Reparametrize the helix r tcos t i sin t j t k with respect to arclength measured from 1, 0, 0 in the direction of increasing t .SOLUTION The initial point 1, 0, 0 corresponds to the parameter value tExample 1 we havedsdtand sosTherefore, tysttrts2r u du00.

Recall that the unitrtrtand indicates the direction of the curve. From Figure 4 you can see that T t changes direction very slowly when C is fairly straight, but it changes direction more quickly when Cbends or twists more sharply.The curvature of C at a given point is a measure of how quickly the curve changes direction at that point. Specically, we dene it to be the magnitude of the rate of change of theunit tangent vector with respect to arc length. (We use arc length so that the curvature willbe independent of the parametrization.)8Definition The curvature of a curve isdTdswhere T is the unit tangent vector.The curvature is easier to compute if it is expressed in terms of the parameter t insteadof s, so we use the Chain Rule (Theorem 14.2.3, Formula 6) to writedTdtBut ds dt9rtd T dsds dtdTdsandd T dtds dtfrom Equation 7, sotTtrtEXAMPLE 3 Show that the curvature of a circle of radius a is 1 a.5E14(pp 894903)1/18/0612:41 PMPage 901S ECTION 14.3 ARC LENGTH AND CURVATURE901SOLUTION We can take the circle to have center the origin, and then a parametrization isrtThereforerta cos t ia cos t ja sin t isoa sin t jandrtrtTtandsin t iTtThis gives T tcos t irtacos t jsin t j1, so using Equation 9, we haveTtrtt1aThe result of Example 3 shows that small circles have large curvature and large circleshave small curvature, in accordance with our intuition.

(See Figure 6.)EXAMPLE 6 Find the unit normal and binormal vectors for the circular helixFIGURE 6rt Figure 7 illustrates Example 6 by showingthe vectors T, N, and B at two locations on thehelix. In general, the vectors T, N, and B, starting at the various points on a curve, form a set oforthogonal vectors, called the TNB frame, thatmoves along the curve as t varies.

It consists of all lines that are orthogonalto the tangent vector T. The plane determined by the vectors T and N is called the osculating plane of C at P. The name comes from the Latin osculum, meaning kiss. It is theplane that comes closest to containing the part of the curve near P. (For a plane curve, theosculating plane is simply the plane that contains the curve.)The circle that lies in the osculating plane of C at P, has the same tangent as C at P, lieson the concave side of C (toward which N points), and has radius1 (the reciprocalof the curvature) is called the osculating circle (or the circle of curvature) of C at P. It isthe circle that best describes how C behaves near P; it shares the same tangent, normal,and curvature at P.EXAMPLE 7 Find the equations of the normal plane and osculating plane of the helix inExample 6 at the point P 0, 1,2.SOLUTION The normal plane at P has normal vector r1, 0, 1 , so an equation2is1x00y11z20orzx25E14(pp 904913)9041/18/0612:33 PMPage 904CHAPTER 14 VECTOR FUNCTIONS Figure 8 shows the helix and the osculatingplane in Example 7.zThe osculating plane at P contains the vectors T and N, so its normal vector isT N B.

Where does the projectile hit the ground, andwith what speed?SOLUTION If we place the origin at ground level, then the initial position of the projectileis (0, 10) and so we need to adjust Equations 4 by adding 10 to the expression for y.With v 0 150 m s,45 , and t 9.8 m s2, we havex150 cosy104t75 s2 t150 sin124t9.8 t 210Impact occurs when y 0, that is, 4.9 t 2 75 s2 t 10equation (and using only the positive value of t), we gett75 s2s11,2509.84.9 t 275 s2 t1960.

The rst thing to notice is that the binormal vectorB is absent. No matter how an object moves through space, its acceleration always lies inthe plane of T and N (the osculating plane). (Recall that T gives the direction of motionand N points in the direction the curve is turning.) Next we notice that the tangential component of acceleration is v , the rate of change of speed, and the normal component ofacceleration is v 2, the curvature times the square of the speed. This makes sense if wethink of a passenger in a cara sharp turn in a road means a large value of the curvature, so the component of the acceleration perpendicular to the motion is large and the passenger is thrown against a car door. High speed around the turn has the same effect; in fact,if you double your speed, aN is increased by a factor of 4.Although we have expressions for the tangential and normal components of acceleration in Equations 8, its desirable to have expressions that depend only on r, r , and r .

After 20 yearsof studying the astronomical observations of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, theGerman mathematician and astronomer Johannes Kepler (15711630) formulated the following three laws.Keplers Laws1. A planet revolves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit with the Sun at one focus.2. The line joining the Sun to a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal times.3. The square of the period of revolution of a planet is proportional to the cube ofthe length of the major axis of its orbit.In his book Principia Mathematica of 1687, Sir Isaac Newton was able to show thatthese three laws are consequences of two of his own laws, the Second Law of Motion andthe Law of Universal Gravitation. In what follows we prove Keplers First Law. The remaining laws are left as exercises (with hints).Since the gravitational force of the Sun on a planet is so much larger than the forcesexerted by other celestial bodies, we can safely ignore all bodies in the universe except theSun and one planet revolving about it. We use a coordinate system with the Sun at the origin and we let r r t be the position vector of the planet. (Equally well, r could be theposition vector of the Moon or a satellite moving around the Earth or a comet movingaround a star.) The velocity vector is v r and the acceleration vector is a r . We usethe following laws of Newton:Second Law of Motion: FLaw of Gravitation:FmaGMmrr3GMmur2where F is the gravitational force on the planet, m and M are the masses of the planet andr , and u1 r r is the unit vector in thethe Sun, G is the gravitational constant, rdirection of r.We rst show that the planet moves in one plane. By equating the expressions for F inNewtons two laws, we nd thataGMrr35E14(pp 904913)1/18/0612:33 PMPage 913SECTION 14.4 MOTION IN SPACE: VELOCITY AND ACCELERATIONand so a is parallel to r. It follows that rto writedrdtva9130. We use Formula 5 in Theorem 14.2.3rvrvvvraThereforerv000hwhere h is a constant vector. (We may assume that h 0; that is, r and v are not parallel.)This means that the vector r r t is perpendicular to h for all values of t , so the planetalways lies in the plane through the origin perpendicular to h. Thus, the orbit of the planetis a plane curve.To prove Keplers First Law we rewrite the vector h as follows:hrvrruru2rrurur2 uururuurr uuThenaGMur2hr2uuGM u u uBut u uthat u uand soFIGURE 8vu(by Theorem 13.4.8, Property 6)1, it follows from Example 5 in Section 14.2GM uhvv11yrxhuhahGM uIntegrating both sides of this equation, we gethcu uuu 2 1 and, since u t0. ThereforeazGM uvuhGM ucwhere c is a constant vector.At this point it is convenient to choose the coordinate axes so that the standard basisvector k points in the direction of the vector h. Then the planet moves in the xyplane.Since both v h and u are perpendicular to h, Equation 11 shows that c lies in thexyplane. This means that we can choose the x and yaxes so that the vector i lies in thedirection of c, as shown in Figure 8.If is the angle between c and r, then r, are polar coordinates of the planet. FromEquation 11 we havervhrGM uGMr u ucGM r urc cosrcGMrrc cos5E14(pp 914919)9141/18/0612:21 PMPage 914CHAPTER 14 VECTOR FUNCTIONSwhere cc . Thenrwhere evhvhe cosrvhhhh2h2h . SorWriting d1rGM 1c GM .

We know that the orbit of a planet is aclosed curve and so the conic must be an ellipse.This completes the derivation of Keplers First Law. We will guide you through thederivation of the Second and Third Laws in the Applied Project on page 916. The proofsof these three laws show that the methods of this chapter provide a powerful tool fordescribing some of the laws of nature. 14.4Exercises1.

A planet revolves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit with the Sun at one focus.2. The line joining the Sun to a planet sweeps out equal areas in equal times.3. The square of the period of revolution of a planet is proportional to the cube of thelength of the major axis of its orbit.Kepler formulated these laws because they tted the astronomical data. He wasnt able to seewhy they were true or how they related to each other. But Sir Isaac Newton, in his PrincipiaMathematica of 1687, showed how to deduce Keplers three laws from two of Newtons ownlaws, the Second Law of Motion and the Law of Universal Gravitation. In Section 14.4 weproved Keplers First Law using the calculus of vector functions. In this project we guide youthrough the proofs of Keplers Second and Third Laws and explore some of their consequences.1. Use the following steps to prove Keplers Second Law.

The target is releasedat the instant the gun is red. Show that the projectile always hits the target, regardless ofthe value v0, provided the projectile does not hit the ground before D.y4.

Find the position vector of the projectile and the parametric equationsof the path of the projectile as functions of the time t. (Ignore air resistance.)(b) Show that the angle of elevation that will maximize the downhill range is the anglehalfway between the plane and the vertical.(c) Suppose the projectile is red up an inclined plane whose angle of inclination is . Showthat, in order to maximize the (uphill) range, the projectile should be red in the directionhalfway between the plane and the vertical.(d) In a paper presented in 1686, Edmond Halley summarized the laws of gravity and projectilemotion and applied them to gunnery. One problem he posed involved ring a projectile tohit a target a distance R up an inclined plane. Show that the angle at which the projectileshould be red to hit the target but use the least amount of energy is the same as the anglein part (c). (Use the fact that the energy needed to re the projectile is proportional tothe square of the initial speed, so minimizing the energy is equivalent to minimizing theinitial speed.)5. A projectile of mass m is red from the origin at an angle of elevation . In addition to gravity, assume that air resistance provides a force that is proportional to the velocity and thatopposes the motion. Then, by Newtons Second Law, the total force acting on the projectilesatises the equation1d 2Rdt 2mmt jkdRdtwhere R is the position vector and k 0 is the constant of proportionality.(a) Show that Equation 1 can be integrated to obtain the equationkRmdRdtv0tt jdR0.dt(b) Multiply both sides of the equation in part (a) by e k m t and show that the lefthand side ofthe resulting equation is the derivative of the product e k m t R t .
