2. Indicate which of these series converge absolutely, which converge conditionally, and which diverge. EXPLAIN YOUR REASONING.

a) tex2html_wrap_inline58

b) tex2html_wrap_inline60

c) tex2html_wrap_inline62

d) tex2html_wrap_inline64

3. Consider the infinite power series tex2html_wrap_inline66 .

a) Find the radius of convergence.

b) Use the series to estimate f(0.2). Your answer should be good to 3 decimal places.

c) Estimate tex2html_wrap_inline70 to 3 decimal places.

d) Estimate f'(0.1) to 3 decimal places.

4. Let L be the line through the points (0,1,2) and (3,2,3). Let P be the plane containing the origin and the line L. Let Q=(5,1,2).

a) Find the equation for the line L.

b) Find the equation for the plane P.

c) Find the distance from Q to L.

d) Find the distance from Q to P.

5. Consider the parametrized curve tex2html_wrap_inline98

a) Find the velocity (vector) at time t=0.

b) Find the speed as a function of time.

c) Find the distance traveled (i.e., arclength) from t=-1 to t=1.

6. a) The width of a rectangle is increasing at a rate of 0.2 meters/second, while the height is increasing at a rate of 1 meter/second. At what rate is the area increasing when the height is 10 meters and the width is 0.5 meters?

b) A bird is flying through a forest fire at 6 meters/second, in the direction (2,2,1). The temperature as a function of position is tex2html_wrap_inline106 . At what rate is the temperature changing when the bird passes the point (5,20,10)?

7. Consider the surface tex2html_wrap_inline108 .

a) Find the equation of the plane tangent to this surface at the point (1,1,1).

b) Find the equation of the line normal to this surface at the point (1,1,1).

8. Consider the function of two variables: tex2html_wrap_inline114 .

a) Find all critical points of this function.

b) Use the second derivative test to determine which critical points are local maxima, which are local minima, and which are saddle points.

9. Find the maximum and minimum values of the function tex2html_wrap_inline116 on the unit sphere tex2html_wrap_inline118 . Where do these maximum and minimum values occur?

10. Let T be the triangle in the x-y plane with vertices (0,0), (2,0) and (1,1). We are interested in the double integral tex2html_wrap_inline132 .

a) Write tex2html_wrap_inline132 as an iterated integral, where you integrate first over x and then over y. (Do not evaluate yet)

b) Break T up into two smaller triangles, tex2html_wrap_inline142 with vertices at (0,0), (1,0) and (1,1), and tex2html_wrap_inline150 with vertices at (1,0), (2,0) and (1,1). Write tex2html_wrap_inline158 as an iterated integral, where you integrate first over y and then over x. Do the same for tex2html_wrap_inline164 .

c) Compute tex2html_wrap_inline132 , either by doing the iterated integral you wrote down in (a) or the ones you wrote down in (b).
