Unformatted text preview: MATH 23 Sample Second Exam was: April, 2003 NAME : Section (Last, First) 1. (10 points ) Sketch the level curves corresponding to the values 1, 0 and 2 for the function f ( x, y ) = y 4 x 2 . 2. (10 points ) Let f ( x, y ) = ye xy . Find each of the following. (a) ∂f ∂x (b) ∂f ∂y (c) ∂f ∂y (0 , 2) 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) . 4. (15 points ) Let f be the function f ( x, y ) = cos(2 xy ) . (a) Find the directional derivative of f at the point (2 , π 8 ) in the direction of the vector a = < 1 , 3 > = i + 3 j. (b) Find the maximal rate of change of f at the point (2 , π 8 ) and the direction in which it occurs. 5. (15 points ) The function h ( x, y ) = xy x 2 y 2 + 3 y + 1 has only one critical point. Find the critical point and determine whether h has a local maximum, local minimum or saddle point. Give the value....
