Calculus III Practice Test 3 F. Mokhtarian 1. Find a vector function that represents the curve of intersection of surfaces x 2 + y 2 = 4 and z = xy . 2. Let C be the curve given by ~ r ( t ) = ( t cos t,t sin t,t ). (a) Show that C lies on the surface of the cone z 2 = x 2 + y 2 . Use this to sketch the curve. Indicate the direction in which t increases on your graph. (b) Give parametric equations of the tangent line to the curve at P ( - π, 0 ). (c) Give the general equation of the normal plane to the curve at P ( - π, 0 ). (d) If a particle’s position vector is given by ~ r ( t ), what is particle’s speed at any time? 3. Let C be the curve given by ~ r ( t ) = (1 ,t 2 ,t 3 ). Find: (a) length of the curve for 0 t 1 (b) unit tangent and unit normal vectors (c) the curvature κ ( t ) (d) tangential and normal components of acceleration. 4. If ~u ( t ) = ~ r ( t ) · ( ~ r 0 ( t ) × ~ r 00 ( t )), show that ~u 0 ( t ) = ~ r ( t ) · ( ~ r 0 ( t ) × ~ r 000 ( t )) 5. Sketch and describe the following:
