[T] A solar panel is mounted on the roof of a house. The panel may be regarded as positioned at the points of coordinates (in meters) $A(8,0,0)$, $B(8,18,0)$, $C(0,18,8)$ and $D(0,0,8)$ (see the following figure). a. Find the general form of the equation of the plane that contains the solar panel by using points A, B, and C, and show that its normal vector is equivalent to $\overrightarrow{A B} \times \overrightarrow{A D}$ b. Find parametric equations of line $L_{1}$ that passes through the center of the solar panel and has direction vector $\mathbf{s}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} \mathbf{i}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} \mathbf{j}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} \mathbf{k}, \quad$ which points toward the position of the Sun at a particular time of day. c. Find symmetric equations of line $L_{2}$ that passes through the center of the solar panel and is perpendicular to it. d. Determine the angle of elevation of the Sun above the solar panel by using the angle between lines $L_{1}$ and $L_{2}$

For functions of one variable it is impossible for a continuous function to have two local maxima and no local minimum. But for functions of two variables such functions exist. Show that the function $$ f(x, y) = -(x^2 - 1)^2 - (x^2y - x - 1)^2 $$ has only two critical points, but has local maxima at both of them. Then use a computer to produce a graph with a carefully chosen domain and viewpoint to see how this is possible.

Where does the helix $ r(t) = \langle \cos \pi t, \sin \pi t, t \rangle $ intersect the paraboloid $ z = x^ 2 + y^2 $? What is the angle of intersection between the helix and the paraboloid? (This is the angle between the tangent vector to the curve and the tangent plane to the paraboloid.)

The temperature $ T $ in a metal ball is inversely proportional to the distance from the center of the ball, which we take to be the origin. The temperature at the point $ (1, 2, 2) $ is $ 120^\circ $. (a) Find the rate of change of $ T $ at $ (1, 2, 2) $ in the direction toward the point $ (2, 1, 3) $. (b) Show that at any point in the ball the direction of greatest increase in temperature is given by a vector that points toward the origin.

If $ V(x, y) $ is the electric potential at a point $ (x, y) $ in the $ xy $-plane, then the level curves of $ V $ are called $\textit{equipotential curves} $ because at all points on such a curve the electric potential is the same. Sketch some equipotential curves if $ V(x, y) = c/\sqrt{r^2 - x^2 - y^2} $, where $ c $ is a positive constant.

If two objects travel through space along two different curves, it's often important to know whether they will collide. (Will a missile hit its moving target? Will two aircraft collide?) The curves might intersect, but we need to know whether the objects are in the same position at the same time. Suppose the trajectories of two particles are given by the vector functions $ r_1 (t) = \langle t^2, 7t - 12, t^2 \rangle $ $ r_2 (t) = \langle 4t - 3, t^2, 5t - 6 \rangle $ for $ t \ge 0 $. Do the particles collide?

(a) Set up, but do not evaluate, a double integral for the area of the surface with parametric equations $ x = au \cos v $, $ y = bu \sin v $, $ z = u^2 $, $ 0 \leqslant u \leqslant 2 $, $ 0 \leqslant v \leqslant 2\pi $. (b) Eliminate the parameters to show that the surface is an elliptic paraboloid and set up another double integral for the surface area. (c) Use the parametric equations in part (a) with $ a = 2 $ and $ b = 3 $ to graph the surface. (d) For the case $ a = 2 $, $ b = 3 $, use a computer algebra system to find the surface area correct to four decimal places.
