and so −→ N = d −→ T dt vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle d −→ T dt vextendsingle vextendsingle vextendsingle = 3 4 (bigg 4 3 sin(2 t ) , 4 3 cos(2 t ) , 0 )bigg = (− sin(2 t ) , cos(2 t ) , 0 ) . This is a horizontal vector pointing radially towards the z -axis. So (a) is true . (b) From the formula for −→ T above we see that the z component of −→ T is constant and equal to 1 / 3. So (b) is true . (c) The unit binormal vector is given by −→ B = −→ T × −→ N = det hatwide ı hatwide hatwide k 2 3 cos(2 t ) 2 3 sin(2 t ) 1 3 sin(2 t ) cos(2 t ) 0 = (bigg 1 3 cos(2 t ) , 1 3 sin(2 t ) , 2 3 )bigg . This vector has non-trivial x and y components so (c) is false . 17

    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.
