Unformatted text preview: MATH 23 Sample Second Exam Solutions was: April, 2003 NAME : Dodson, B. Section 110- 313 (Last, First) 1. (10 points ) Sketch the level curves . . . . (directly from homework.) 2. (10 points ) Let f ( x, y ) = ye xy . Find each of the following. (directly from homework.) 3. (10 points ) Find an equation of the tangent plane to the surface z = x 2- 3 y 2 at the point (- 3 , 2 ,- 3) . For this problem, and the other tangent plane problem, its useful to have the correct formula. Here the surface is a graph, z = f ( x, y ) , for which the normal vector of the tangent plane is given by < f x , f y ,- 1 > . We compute f x = 2 x, f y =- 6 y. In this case, the point on the surface has the form ( a, b, f ( a, b )) , and the partial derivatives are to be evaluated at ( a, b ) = (- 3 , 2) . So the normal is <- 6 ,- 12 ,- 1 > and a point on the plane is the point of tangency, so an equation for the plane is- 6( x + 3)- 12( y- 2)- ( z + 3) = 0 . In the other case (from the other exam problems, #2), for the level surface xyz 2 + y 3 = 3 at the point (2 , 1 ,- 1) , we have F ( x, y, z ) = c, and the normal is < F...
