Unformatted text preview: M 427L Practice for the third exam. The actual exam will not be so long 1. Let vector T ( r, θ ) : R 2 → R 3 be a differentiable function. Which of the following is the geometric meaning of ( ∂ vector T ∂r × ∂ vector T ∂θ ) · dr · dθ (a) This is a vector normal to the surface, with length (roughly) the area of the image of a tiny rectangle of area dr · dθ . (b) This is the axis of (infintesimal) rotation for flow of the vector field vector T , its length is (roughly) the angular velocity. (c) This is a vector which points in the direction of maximal increase of vector T (at the point ( r, θ )). (d) This is the determinant of the Jacobian matrix for vector T , and so gives the factor by which vector T stretches (infintesimally). For 2 –3 let vector T : R 2 → R 3 be the function vector T ( r, θ ) = ( r · cos ( θ ) , r · sin ( θ ) , r 2 ) . Let D ⊂ R 2 be the rectangle 2 ≥ r ≥ 0, 2 π ≥ θ ≥ 0. Let S = vector T ( D ). 2. Which of the following best describes S ? (a) It is part of a sphere of radius 2. (b) It is part of the paraboloid z = x 2 + y 2 ....
