Let r ( t ) = e t sin t i + e t j + e t cos t k represent the path of a particle at time t . (a) If the particle starts at time t = 0, and moves a distance of 27 units along the path, when did the particle stop? (b) Find parametric equations of the tangent line to r ( t ) at t = π . (c) Determine whether the curve is smooth on 0
