Math 224 – Calculus III 1 12.6 Cylinders and Quadric Surfaces Recommended Homework: #1-35. In 12.5 we considered lines and planes in 3 . Here we look at more complicated surfaces. Cylinders in Space Here a “cylinder” is not just the familiar right-circular cylinder, but any surface that is made up of all parallel lines (called rulings ) that are perpendicular to some 2D curve (“ plane ” curve). This plane curve is a cross-section of the general cylinder. Example: A right-circular cylinder is the set of all parallel lines that are perpendicular to the cross- sectional (2D) curve; a circle: In general, the plane curve need not be circular. A cylinder is obtained when one of the variables is missing from the equation in 3 Example: Describe and sketch the surfaces 2 4 xy 22 9 16 yz
