Calculus III Midterm I Study Guide Chapters 14.1 – 16.4 Chapter 14 – Vector Calculus Tangent Vector Unit Tangent Unit Normal The plane determined by the unit tangent and unit normal is called the osculating plane, given by Arc Length Parametrize a Curve by Arc Length Curvature of a Plane Curve or Chapter 15 – Functions of Several Variables Level Curves Let and identify which quadric surface is made. Plug in arbitrary values for c to plot the level curves. Projections The projection of a curve onto a plane is found by equating the two equations by the variable in the plane in which the curve is being projected. Partial Derivatives The partial derivative of with respect to x is the function
