The University of Sydney School of Mathematics and Statistics Tutorial 1 MATH2061: Vector Calculus Summer School 2012 1. Let u = 3 i j k , v = i + 3 j + k and w = 2 i 3 k . Find ( u · v ) w , u ( v · w ) , ( u × v ) · w , u · ( v × w ) , ( u × v ) × w , u × ( v × w ) . 2. Find the equations of the straight lines that satisfy each of the following sets of conditions. Give answers in vector form, parametric scalar form and Cartesian form. (a) The line passes through the points P ( 2 , 1 , 3) and Q (1 , 4 , 2) . (b) The line passes through the point P (1 , 2 , 4) and is parallel to the line given by r = ( i + j + 6 k ) + (4 i j + k ) t. (c) The line passes through the point P (0 , 1 , 3) and is perpendicular to the plane 4 x 3 y + z = 7. 3. A particle moves along a curve whose parametric equations are x ( t ) = sin t, y ( t ) = te t , z ( t ) = cos t, where t is the time. (a) Determine its velocity vector and acceleration vector.
