______________________________________________________________________ 8. (15 pts.) (a) ( 12 pts.) Compute the unit vectors T (t) and N (t) and the curvature κ (t) for the helix defined by r (t) = < cos(t), t , sin(t) >. (b) (3 pts.) Locate the center, C(x 0 ,y 0 ,z 0 ), of the circle of curvature when t = π /2.

Name: Final Exam/MAC2313 Page 5 of 8 ______________________________________________________________________ 9. (15 pts.) Obtain a set of parametric equations for the line through the point (0, 0, 0) that is perpendicular to the plane that contains the three points (1,0,0), (0,2,0), and (0,0,3). Then locate the point in 3-space where the line intersects the plane. ______________________________________________________________________ 10. (15 pts.) Locate and classify the critical points of the function f ( x , y ) = x 3 - 3 xy - y 3 . Use the second partials test in making your classification. (Fill in the table below after you locate all the critical points. It always helps to factor. How does a product equal zero??) Crit.Pt. f xx @ cp f yy @ cp f xy @ cp D @ cp Conclusion

Name: Final Exam/MAC2313 Page 6 of 8 ______________________________________________________________________ 11. (10 pts.) Let F ( x , y ) = < 6 x + y , 4 y + x >. (a) Show that the field is conservative by producing a potential function φ (x,y) so that ∇φ ( x , y ) = F ( x , y ) for all ( x , y ) in the plane. (b) Working within the influence of the force field from part (a), you move a particle along an ellipse C given by r ( t ) <3cos( t ),4sin( t )> from time t 0 = π /2 to time t 1 = π . How much work did you do?? ______________________________________________________________________ 12. (10 pts.) Let F ( x , y , z ) = < x 2 y , 2 y 3 z , 3 z >. Compute the divergence and the curl of the vector field F .

    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.
