Hence, this surface is the unit sphere in R 3 . The tangent vectors for this surface are T u = (cos v cos u, sin v cos u,- sin u ) , T v = (- sin v sin u, cos v sin u, 0) . Then the normal vector for this surface is T u T v = (cos v sin 2 u, sin v sin 2 u, cos u sin u ) and its length is T u T v = ( cos v sin 2 u ) 2 + ( sin v sin 2 u ) 2 + (cos u sin u ) 2 = sin u. Thus, the unit normal vector for the unit sphere is (cos v sin u, sin v sin u, cos u ) = ( x, y, z ). 7.4.6 One can parametrize the unit sphere in the manner described in 7.3.5; it remains to place bounds on u and v in order to describe the surface in question. This surface can also be described as the portion of the unit sphere bounded by the cone x 2 + y 2- z 2 = 0 , z . Recall that in spherical coordinates, fixing constant describes a cone em- anating from the origin along the positive z-axis; hence, our parametriza- tion should have bounds 0...
