Now from the equation for x it follows that t = 1 9 e x/ 4 . But then y = parenleftBig 1 9 e x/ 4 parenrightBig 1 / 2 = 1 3 e x/ 8 . 002 10.0 points Let Q, R be the points where the ray of angle θ intersects circles centered at the origin as shown in 2 4 6 8 − 2 − 4 − 6 − 8 2 4 6 8 − 2 − 4 − 6 − 8 θ P R Q and let P be the point of intersection of the horizontal line through Q and the vertical line through R . As θ varies, P traces out a curve. Write this curve in parametric form ( x ( θ ) , y ( θ )) , ≤ θ ≤ 2 π . (Hint: find the coordinates of Q and R .) 1. (7 sec θ, 4 tan θ ) 2. (4 sec θ, 7 tan θ ) 3. (7 cos θ, 4 sin θ ) correct 4. (4 cos θ, 7 sin θ ) 5. (4 tan θ, 7 sec θ ) 6. (7 sin θ, 4 cos θ ) Explanation: From the graph it follows that the inner circle has radius 4, while the outer circle has radius 7. On the other hand, any circle of radius r centered at the origin can be written in parametric form as (cos θ, sin θ ) , ≤ θ ≤ 2 π , Thus Q and R are the points Q (4 cos θ, 4 sin θ ) , R (7 cos θ, 7 sin θ ) . But P, Q have the same ycoordinate, and P, R have the same xcoordinate. Version 047 – Exam02 – Gilbert – (56380) 2 Consequently, the curve traced out by P has the parametric form (7 cos θ, 4 sin θ ) for 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2 π . Eliminating θ , we see that P traces out the ellipse x 2 49 + y 2 16 = 1 whose relation to the circles is shown in 2 4 6 8 − 2 − 4 − 6 − 8 2 4 6 8 − 2 − 4 − 6 − 8 P 003 10.0 points Find an equation for the tangent line to the curve given parametrically by x ( t ) = e 2 t , y ( t ) = 3 t 2 − t + 1 at the point P (1 , 1)....
