MATH 273 PRACTICE TEST 1 NAME: 1. (10 points). Suppose that z = z ( x, y ) is a function defined implicitly by the equation z 3 + xz - y 2 = 1. Use implicit differentiation to find ∂z ∂x and ∂z ∂y . Answer: ∂z ∂x = - z 3 z 2 + x , ∂z ∂y = 2 y 3 z 2 + x . 2. (10 points). Find an equation of the tangent plane to the surface given by the graph of f ( x, y ) = 2 x 2 + 4 y 2 - 5 at the point P (1 , 1 4 , 0). Answer: 4( x - 1) + 2( y - 1 4 ) - z = 0. 1

(10 points). In the two-dimensional space, the trajectory of a particle is given by r ( t ) =-1 2 gt 2 j + v t, where g 10 m/s 2 , v = 2 3 i + 2 j . a) Find the time when the particle hits the ground; b) Find the distance d between the origin and the point of impact. (To do this, you would need to determine x-coordinate of the impact point). Answer: a) 3 5 , b) 4 3 5 . 6 9. (10 points). Find the length of the curve r ( t ) = t i + 2 2 t 2 j + 1 3 t 3 k , t 1 . Hint: to integrate, represent the quantity under the square root as a complete square. This should be easy. Answer: 4 3 . 7...
