morris (gmm643) – HW 6 – mann – (54675) 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. Sections 11.1, 11.2 001 10.0 points Find a Cartesian equation for the curve given in parametric form by y ( t ) = 4 t 2 , x ( t ) = 8 t 3 . 1. y = 2 x 3 / 2 2. y = x 4 / 3 3. y = 2 x 4 / 3 4. y = 2 x 2 / 3 5. y = x 3 / 2 6. y = x 2 / 3 correct Explanation: We have to eliminate the parameter t from the equations for x and y . But from the equation for x , it follows that t = 1 2 x 1 / 3 , in which case y = 4 parenleftbigg 1 2 x 1 / 3 parenrightbigg 2 = x 2 / 3 . 002 10.0 points Describe the motion of a particle with posi- tion P ( x, y ) when x = 4 sin t , y = 3 cos t as t varies in the interval 0 t 2 π . 1. Moves once counterclockwise along the ellipse x 2 16 + y 2 9 = 1 , starting and ending at (0 , 3). 2. Moves along the line x 4 + y 3 = 1 , starting at (0 , 3) and ending at (4 , 0). 3. Moves once clockwise along the ellipse (4 x ) 2 + (3 y ) 2 = 1 , starting and ending at (0 , 3). 4. Moves once clockwise along the ellipse x 2 16 + y 2 9 = 1 , starting and ending at (0 , 3). correct 5. Moves once counterclockwise along the ellipse (4 x ) 2 + (3 y ) 2 = 1 , starting and ending at (0 , 3). 6. Moves along the line x 4 + y 3 = 1 , starting at (4 , 0) and ending at (0 , 3). Explanation: Since cos 2 t + sin 2 t = 1 for all t , the particle travels along the curve given in Cartesian form by x 2 16 + y 2 9 = 1 ; this is an ellipse centered at the origin. At t = 0, the particle is at (4 sin 0 , 3 cos 0), i.e. , at the point (0 , 3) on the ellipse. Now as t increases from t = 0 to t = π/ 2, x ( t ) increases from x = 0 to x = 4, while y ( t ) decreases from y = 3 to y = 0 ; in particular, the particle moves from a point on the positive y -axis to a point on the positive x -axis, so it is moving clockwise .

morris (gmm643) – HW 6 – mann – (54675) 2 In the same way, we see that as t increases from π/ 2 to π , the particle moves to a point on the negative y -axis, then to a point on the negative x -axis as t increases from π to 3 π/ 2, until finally it returns to its starting point on the positive y -axis as t increases from 3 π/ 2 to 2 π . Consequently, the particle moves clockwise once around the ellipse x 2 16 + y 2 9 = 1 , starting and ending at (0 , 3). keywords: motion on curve, ellipse 003 10.0 points Which one of the following could be the graph of the curve given parametrically by x ( t ) = t 2 3 , y ( t ) = t 3 2 t , where the arrows indicate the direction of increasing t ? 1. x y 2. x y cor- rect 3. x y 4. x y 5. x y 6. x y Explanation:

morris (gmm643) – HW 6 – mann – (54675) 3 All the graphs are symmetric either about the y -axis or the x -axis. Let’s check which it is for the graph of ( x ( t ) , y ( t )) = ( t 2 3 , t 3 2 t ) . Now x ( t ) = ( t ) 2 3 = t 2 3 = x ( t ) , and y ( t ) = ( t ) 3 2( t ) = ( t 3 2 t ) = y ( t ) , so ( x ( t ) , y ( t )) = ( x ( t ) , y ( t )) . Thus the graph is symmetric about the x -axis, eliminating three choices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
