Unformatted text preview: Math 2263 Fall 2009 Midterm 1, WITH SOLUTIONS October 8, 2009 1. (15 points) The lines given parametrically by ( x, y, z ) = (1 + t,- 2- 2 t, 2 t ) ,-∞ < t < ∞ and ( x, y, z ) = (1 + 2 s,- 2 + 2 s, s ) ,-∞ < s < ∞ intersect at the point ( x, y, z ) = (1 ,- 2 , 0) . Find an equation for the plane which contains both lines . Write the equation in the form ax + by + cz = d. SOLUTION: A normal vector ~v is the cross product of the vectors ~ i- 2 ~ j +2 ~ k and 2 ~ i +2 ~ j + ~ k , which are vectors in the directions of the two given lines. ~v = ~ i ~ j ~ k 1- 2 2 2 2 1 =- 6 ~ i + 3 ~ j + 6 ~ k. We can divide ~v by 3, so an equation for the plane is- 2( x- 1)+( y +2)+2 z = 0, or simplifying:- 2 x + y + 2 z =- 4 . 2. (13 points) Find an equation for the hyperbolic cylinder in ( x, y, z )-space containing in- finitely many lines parallel to the x-axis, and containing the slanted hyperbola x = y, x 2 + y 2- z 2 = 4 . SOLUTION: Eliminate x from the equations x = y , x 2 + y 2- z 2 = 4 to get 2 y 2- z 2 = 4 ....
