MATH 265: MULTIVARIABLE CALCULUS: LESSON 6 PROBLEMS Problems are worth 20 points each. (1) Determine the length of the curve -→ r ( t ) = e t cos t -→ ı + e t sin t -→ + e t -→ k for 0 t 1. (2) Determine the speed of a moving particle at time t = π 2 whose position at time t is given by the vector equation -→ r ( t ) = h sin 2 t, cos 3 t, cos 2 t i . (3) Calculate κ ( t ) for the curve given by -→ r ( t ) = t -→ ı + -→ + e t -→ k . (4) Determine the point on the plane curve f ( x ) = ln x where the curvature is max- imum. You may need to review max-min methods from Calculus I to do this
