We can get another parameterization of C by con-sidering the composition f ( s ) = r ( h ( s ) ) This is called a reparameterization . Find a choice of h so that i. f (0) = r (0) ii. The length of the segment of C between f (0) and f ( s ) is s . (This is called param-eterizing by arc length.) Check your answer with the instructor. (c) Without calculating anything, what is | f ( s ) | ? (d) Draw a sketch of C . 3. Consider the curve C given by the parameterization r : R → R 3 where r ( t ) = (sin t ,cos t ,sin 2 t ). (a) Show that C is in the intersection of the surfaces z = x 2 and x 2 + y 2 = 1. (b) Use (a) to help you sketch the curve C . 4. As in 2(b), consider a reparameterization f ( s ) = r ( h ( s ) ) of an arbitrary vector-valued function r : R → R 3 . Use the chain rule to calculate | f ( s ) | in terms of r and h ....
