Unformatted text preview: ~ r ( t ) = (cos 3 t, sin 3 t ) on the interval ≤ t ≤ π/ 2 . ANSWER: 3 4. (10 points) A racecar driver drives on a mountain road. Her position function is ~ r ( t ) = (cos t, 2 sin t ) . The height of the mountain is given by the function h ( x, y ) = x 2-2 xy + 3 y 2 . Find the rate of change of her elevation at a function of t . Hint: We are computing d dt h ( ~ r ( t )) . ANSWER: 4 5. (10 points) Sketch the level curves of the function shown below.
