Unformatted text preview: Math 1920, Prelim I Practice Problems 1. Suppose that f (x, y ) is a function defined and continuous everywhere in the plane except at (0, 0). The figure shows some of the distinct level curves as solid circles tangent to the x-axis at the origin. Suppose further that lim f (0, y ) = 0 = lim f (x, 0). y →0 Does lim (x,y )→(0,0) x→0 f (x, y ) exist? Does lim f (x, kx) = 0 for all k ? x→0 y f(x,y) = 1 x 2. Is there a non-zero value of the number a such that f (x, y ) = (x2 + y 2 )a satisfies Laplace’s equation ∂2f ∂2f + 2 = 0. ∂x2 ∂y 3. (a) Show that the vectors i, j, k, i + j + k form the vertices of a regular tetrahedron. (b) Which is larger, the edges of a regular tetrahedron, or the distance between opposite edges? What is the ratio of those distances? ...
