A. Suppose f (x, y ) and g (x, y ) are dierentiable at (a, b). Must the function h(x, y ) = f (x, y ) + g (x, y ) be dierentiable at (a, b)?
Math 241, Problem Set #5: Solutions to additional problems
A. Recall that in the metric system of measurement, position has units of
meters and time has units of seconds. Determine the metric unit uni
Math 241, Problem Set #4: Solutions to additional problems
A. Show that for the helix h(t) = a cos t, a sin t, bt , the vector derivative
makes a constant angle with the z -axis. What is this angle if
