Unformatted text preview: Spring 2012 Math 4250/6250 Exam #1 This take-home exam covers the material on curves (class notes #1 through #6 and DoCarmo Chapter #1). Undergraduates must pick four questions and may substitute one or more graduate exam problems for undergraduate exam problems for bonus credit. Graduate students must pick one undergraduate problem and two graduate problems and may do all three graduate problems for bonus credit.

Find the (unsigned) curvature κ ( t ) of the parametrized plane curve given below in polar coor- dinates:- 2 2 4 6- 4- 2 2 4 α ( t ) = ( r ( t ) ,θ ( t )) = (4 cos 3 t + 2 ,t ) 2. Find the curvature and torsion of the curve given by α ( t ) = (1 + cos t, sin t, 2 sin t 2 ) . 3. We learned to write the set of lines in the plane using the coordinates ( θ,p ) where ‘ ( θ,p ) is the line which satisfies the equation: (cos θ ) x + (sin θ ) y = p, Suppose that α ( s ) = ( α 1 ( s ) ,α 2 ( s ))...
