December 2011 Mathematics 317 Name Page 2 of 12 pages Marks [18] 1. Short answers. Answer each question below. Read and think carefully. For this question only, no explanation or justification is needed, and no credit will be given for an incorrect answer. (There are no typos in this question. If something looks incorrect, you should say so in your answer.) (a) (3 marks) True or false? If r ( t ) is the position at time t of an object moving in R 3 , and r ( t ) is twice differentiable, then | r 00 ( t ) | is the tangential component of its acceleration. (b) (3 marks) Let r ( t ) is a smooth curve in R 3 with unit tangent, normal and binormal vectors T ( t ) , N ( t ), B ( t ). Which two of these vectors span the plane normal to the curve at r ( t )? (c) (3 marks) True or false? If F = P i + Q j + R k is a vector field on R 3 such that P, Q, R have continuous first order derivatives, and if curl F = 0 everywhere on R 3 , then F is conservative.

If F = P i + Q j + R k is a vector field on R 3 such that P, Q, R have continuous second order derivatives, then curl(div F ) = 0 . (e) (3 marks) True or false? If F is a vector field on R 3 such that | F ( x, y, z ) | = 1 for all x, y, z , and if S is the sphere x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1, then RR S F · d S = 4 π .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
