MATH1211/10-11(2)/Tu3/TNK THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS MATH1211 Multivariable Calculus 2010-11 2nd Semester: Tutorial 3 Date of tutorial classes: February 17–18. (The section/problem numbers in the following refer to those in the textbook.) 1. ( § 2.5 no.4) Suppose that z = x 2 + y 3 , where x = st and y is a function of s and t . Suppose further that when ( s,t ) = (2 , 1), ∂y/∂t = 0. Determine ∂z ∂t (2 , 1). 2. ( § 2.5 no.12) If w = f ± x 2 - y 2 x 2 + y 2 ² is a diﬀerentiable function of u = x 2 - y 2 x 2 + y 2 , show that then x ∂w ∂x + y ∂w ∂y = 0 . 3. Let f ( x,y ) = xe 2 y + x 3 .
