Definition of a Cylinder Let C be a curve in a plane and let L be a line not in a parallel plane. The set of all lines parallel to L and intersecting C is called a cylinder. C is called the generating curve (or directrix), and the parallel lines are called rulings. Note: If one of the variables is missing from the equation of a cylinder, its rulings are parallel to the coordinate axis of the missing variable.
Examples: 4 2 = + z y 0 = - x e z

To get the trace in the xz-plane, set y=0, etc. 3) If needed, find the traces in planes that are parallel to coordinate planes by holding a variable constant. Examples: Identify and Sketch: 1) 2) 4 4 2 2 = +-z y x 1 4 / 2 2 2 = + + z y x #42 Sketch the region bounded by the graphs of the equations. X=0, y=0, z=0 2 4 x z-= 2 4 x y-=...
