(a) Find the best linear approximation of f ( x,y,z ) at ~x = (1 , 1 , 0). (b) Explain what we mean when we say that the linearization in part (a) is the best linear approximation at ~x = (1 , 1 , 0). 2. (a) Let f and g be two scalar-valued functions. State the Product Rule for ∇ ( fg ). (b) Let f ( x,y,z ) = xy + e z and g ( x,y,z ) = y 2 sin( z ). Compute ∇ ( fg )( x,y,z ). 3. Let f ( x,y,z ) = xe y + ye z + ze x . (a) Find the directional derivative of f at the point (1 , 1 , 1) in the direction of v = (5 , 1 ,- 2). (b) In what direction does f have the maximum rate of change? What is this maximum? 4. Let F ( x,y,z ) = y 2 z 3 i + 2 xyz 3 j + 3 xy 2 z 2 k . (a) Find ∇ × F . (b) Show that F is a gradient field by finding a potential function f . 5. Let F ( x,y ) = (cos y + x 2 , e x + y ) and G ( u,v ) = ( e u 2 , u- sin v )....
