MTH 243 Calculus for Functions of Several Variables Worksheet 2/Fall 2013 Name: 2.1 A canoe is moving with velocity vV = 2 i + 4 j m/sec relative to the water. The velocity of current in the water is v c = i + 2 j m/sec. (a) What is the speed of the canoe? (b) What is the speed of the canoe in the direction of the current? 2.2 Write va = 2 i + 3 j 4 k as the sum of two vectors, one parallel, and one perpendicular, to v b = 3 i j + 2 k . 2.3 Find an equation of a plane through the point (1 , 2 , 3) perpendicular to 2 i + 3 j 4 k . 2.4 Find the area of the triangle with vertices P (1 , 2 , 3) , Q ( 2 , , 0 , 1) , and R (3 , 2 , 5) .
