Jignesh Patel Assignment 5 MATH262, Fall 2010 due 10/24/2010 at 11:59pm EDT. 1. (1 pt) For the given position vectors r ( t ) compute the unit tangent vector T ( t ) for the given value of t . A.) If r ( t ) = ( cos3 t , sin3 t ) Then T ( π 4 ) = ( , ) C.) If r ( t ) = ( t 2 , t 3 ) Then T ( 2 ) = ( , ) C.) If r ( t ) = e 3 t i + e - 2 t j + t k . Then T ( - 5 ) = i + j + k . 2. (1 pt) Find parametric equations for the tangent line at the point ( cos ( - 1 π 6 ) , sin ( - 1 π 6 ) , - 1 π 6 )) on the curve x = cos t , y = sin t , z = t x ( t ) = y ( t ) = z ( t ) = 3. (1 pt) Find the length of the given curve: r ( t ) = ( 3 t , 2sin t , 2cos t ) where - 2 t 5. 4. (1 pt) Find the arclength s ( t ) of the curve r ( t ) = 8 t 3 i + 15 t 4 j + 15 t 5 k from r ( 0 ) to r ( t ) . You can assume that t is posi- tive. Don’t forget to submit your answer as a function of t . s ( t ) = 5. (1 pt) Starting from the point ( 5 , 4 , - 2 ) reparametrize the curve r ( t ) = ( 5 - 5 t ) i +( 4 - 2 t ) j +( - 2 - 3 t ) k in terms of arclength. Be sure that the points corresponding to t = 0 and s = 0 are the same and that t and s are increasing in the same direction. Remember, the answers are functions of
