Only pages 1-2 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred. Problem 1) True/False (TF) questions (20 points)
Mark for each of the 20 questions the correct letter. No justiﬁcations are needed.
1) T F The surface x2+y2+z2+ 2z= 0 is a sphere.
2) T F The length of the vector h1,2,2iis an integer.
3) T F The vector h3,4iappears as a velocity vector of the curve ~r(t) =
hcos(5t),sin(5t)i. Namely, there is a tsuch that ~r (t) = h3,4i.
4) T F If ~
Tis the unit tangent vector, ~
Nis the unit normal vector, and ~
Bis the
binormal vector, then ~
B×~
N=~
T.
5) T F The curvature of a larger circle r= 2 is greater than the curvature of a
smaller circle r= 1/2.
6) T F The surface x2y2z21 = 0 is a one sheeted hyperboloid.
7) T F The function f(x, y) = y2x2has a graph that is an elliptic paraboloid.
8) T F Let ~r(t) be a parametrization of a curve. If ~r(t) is always parallel to the
tangent vector ~r (t), then the curve is part of a line through the origin.
9) T F If Proj~
k(~u) is perpendicular to ~u, then ~u is the zero vector.
10) T F If Proj~
k(~u) is perpendicular to ~u, then Proj~
k(~u) is the zero vector.
11) T F If ~u ×~v =~
0 then ~u =~
0 or ~v =~
0.
12) T F There are two vectors ~a and ~
bsuch that the scalar projection of ~a onto ~
bis
100 times the magnitude of ~
b.
13) T F The curve ~r(t) = hcos(t), et+ 10, t2i,2t6 and the curve ~r(t) =
hcos(2t), e2t,4t2i,1t3 have the same length.
14) T F The equation ρsin(φ)2 sin(θ) = 0 in spherical coordinates deﬁnes a two
sheeted hyperboloid.
15) T F If triple scalar product of three vectors ~u, ~v, ~w is larger than |~u ×~v|then
|~w|>1.
16) T F The distance between the x-axis and the line x=y= 1 is 2.
17) T F The vector h−1,2,3iis perpendicular to the plane x2y3z= 9.
18) T F The curve ~r(t) = t3h1,2,3iis a line.
19) T F The point (1,1,3) is in spherical coordinates given by (ρ, θ, φ) =
(5, π/4,2π/3).
20) T F If the cross product satisﬁes (~v ×~w)×~v =~
0 then ~v and ~w are orthogonal.
