Unformatted text preview: suleimenov (bs26835) HW 08 rusin (55565) 1 This printout should have 27 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. Note: here, the trace of a graph in a plane just means the intersection of the graph with the plane. (I dont know why they use that language.) 001 10.0 points The distance d from P to the line in Q R D d a b P is given by d =  a b   a  where Q, R are points on and a = QR , b = QP . Use this formula to find the distance from P (1 , 4 , 7) to the line specified in parametric form by x = 3 + 2 t , y = 2 t , z = 5 + 2 t . 1. distance = 103 2 2. distance = 104 3 correct 3. distance = 103 3 4. distance = 105 3 5. distance = 104 2 6. distance = 105 2 Explanation: It is convenient to take Q = ( x (0) , y (0) , z (0)) = (3 , 2 , 5) and R = ( x (1) , y (1) , z (1)) = (5 , 1 , 7) . With this choice of Q and R , a = ( 2 , 1 , 2 ) , b = ( 2 , 2 , 2 ) , while a b = vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle i j k 2 1 2 2 2 2 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 1 2 2 2 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle i vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 2 2 2 2 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle j + vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle 2 1 2 2 vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle k = 6 i 8 j + 2 k .

We have to decide which quadric surface goes with which equation  a good way of do ing that is by taking plane slices parallel to the coordinate planes, i.e. , by setting respec tively x = a , y = a and z = a in the equations once weve decided what the graphs of those plane slices should be. Now as slicing of shows, a slice of this ellipsoid by each of x = a , y = a and z = a will be an ellipse (or circle) so long as the slice intersects the ellipsoid. Only the graph of 2 x 2 + y 2 + 3 z 2 = 1 has this property....
