Math 241 Exam 1 Sample 3 Directions: Do not simplify unless indicated. No calculators are permitted. Show all work as appropriate for the methods taught in this course. Partial credit will be given for any work, words or ideas which are relevant to the problem. Please put problem 1 on answer sheet 1 1. Given the following data: P = (3 , 2 , 1) Q = (5 , 0 , 0) ¯ a = 2ˆ ı + 5 ˆ ¯ b = 1ˆ ı + 2 ˆ + 3 ˆ k (a) Find a vector of length 1 pointing from P toward Q . [7 pts] (b) Find the value of α so that α ˆ ı - 2 ˆ + α ˆ k is perpendicular to ¯ a . [6 pts] (c) Find Pr ¯ b ¯ a . [7 pts] Please put problem 2 on answer sheet 2 2. (a) Find the distance between the point (3 , 2 , 1) and the plane 2 x + 3 y - z = 4. [8 pts] (b) Find the curvature of ¯ r ( t ) = t ˆ ı + sin t ˆ at t = π 2 . [12 pts] Please put problem 3 on answer sheet 3 3. (a) Sketch the VVF ¯ r ( t ) = 3 cos t ˆ ı -
