Fall 2008
Prof. James O’Brien page 12 of 15 19. Consider this diagram showing a threejoint arm in 2D where each joint is a simple pin joint
and the base is fixed in space. If we are solving an IK problem to place the tip of the arm (the black dot) at a particular location, what is the size of the Jacobian matrix we will be working with?
3 points Draw any one configuration of the arm where the rows of the Jacobian will not be linearly
independent.
5 points Draw any one configuration of the arm where the columns of the Jacobian will not be linearly
independent.
5 points Important: You may not draw the same configuration twice! Final Exam CS 184: Foundations of Computer Graphics

Prof. James O’Brien page 13 of 15 20. Name two types of useful image effects that would require shooting more than one ray per
pixel in a raytracer.
4 points 21. The “Painter’s algorithm” sorts polygons by the depth of their center of gravity, and draws
the furthest polygon first. Sketch one example where this algorithm fails.
3 points 22. Consider the two diagrams below. All four surfaces are identical ideal diffuse reflectors. In
each diagram circle the surface that will appear brighter to the observer.
