Surfaces in Space

In this lesson we will turn our attention to two types of 3-D surfaces: Cylinders and Quadric Surfaces. z 2 Let C be a curve in a plane and let L be a line not parallel to that plane. Then the set of points on lines parallel to L that intersect C is called a cylinder. The straight lines that make up the cylinder are called the rulings of the cylinder. In the sketch, we have the generating curve, a parabola in the yz-plane: The line L is the x-axis. The rulings are parallel to the x-axis. x y

z y the curve

For a point on this surface, the x-coordinate can take on any value as long as the y- and z-coordinates satisfy the equation ( y 1) 2 ( z 1) 2 1. z Cross-section of the surface in the yz-plane.

An effective way to visualize this surface is to move about 5 units down the xaxis and place a copy of the circle in its corresponding position.

Then draw lines parallel to the x-axis (rulings) that connect corresponding points on the two circles and you have a pretty good idea what the cylinder looks like.

An effective way to visualize this surface is to move about 5 units down the xaxis and place a copy of the circle in its corresponding position.

Then draw lines parallel to the x-axis (rulings) that connect corresponding points on the two circles and you have a pretty good idea what the cylinder looks like.

Here is a more sophisticated version done on DPGraph. Please go to www.dpgraph.com and click on List of Site Licenses. Find TCC in the listed schools and download this free program now. Most of the graphs in this lesson are done on DPGraph.

The bad news about DPGraph is that it uses a left-handed system. You can often convert to a right-handed system if you swap the x and y terms in your equation. More on that later.

Bright Ideas Software has a very cool and very free 3D Surface Viewer. To construct your own copy of the half-cylinder that you see below, go to http://www.brightideassoftware.com/DrawSurfaces.asp and enter the equation for the top half of the surface in the previous slide.

If you want to see the bottom half of the cylinder, slap a negative in front of the square root. You can click on the image and turn it to see the image from different perspectives. Add this link to your favorites list in your browser and call it the 3D Grapher.

Limitations: you cannot enter equations implicitly. Every surface has to be generated by a function with z as the dependent variable. You can only enter one function at a time so we cannot view the top half and the bottom half simultaneously.

Still, this is a decent piece of graphing software. Feel free to make your own graphs as needed during the lesson.

We now move from cylinders to Quadric Surfaces. A quadric surface in space is generated by a second-degree equation of the form:

Ax 2

By 2 Cz 2

In this lesson, we will be working with equations where G=H=I=0. The first quadric surface we examine will be the Ellipsoid. A football is an ellipsoid. Planet Earth is also an ellipsoid. The standard form of an ellipsoid is:

x2 a2

y2 b2

z2 c2

If a=b=c, then the ellipsoid is a sphere. To graph an ellipsoid in standard form, we may have to solve for z. Consider:

x2 4 z2 9 z 3 z

y2 25 x2 1 4

z2 9

1 y2 25 y2 25 y2 25

x2 1 4 x2 3 1 4

The graph of this equation is the top half of the ellipsoid. Convert the 3 to -3 to see the bottom half. Link to the 3D Grapher and graph both the bottom and top.

It is very helpful to examine the intersection of the quadric surface with the coordinate planes or even with planes that are parallel to the coordinate planes. Consider the table below for the ellipsoid of the previous slide:

Check out the graph on the next slide! The graph was done on DP Grapher but the x and y terms had to be reversed since DP Grapher uses a lefthanded system. The remaining graphs in this lesson will be done on DP Grapher.

When one of your coordinate planes comes up empty or has a trace of just the point (0,0,0), look at the trace of planes parallel to the coordinate plane. For example try z=3 or z=-3.

Our next surface will be the hyperboloid. We will look at two types: the hyperboloid of one sheet and the hyperboloid of two sheets. In each case, two traces will be hyperbolas and the third trace will be an ellipse.

When drawing a hyperboloid of one sheet on your own, it is usually helpful to draw the ellipse in the coordinate plane and two parallel ellipses equidistant from the coordinate plane. For example, at x=4, x=-4:

At y=0, the xz-plane is empty. It is important to look at other values of y. At y=3 and at y=-3, we find the vertices of the hyperbola. At y=6 and at y=-6, we get a good look at the circular cross sections.

Hyperbola at x=0.

Our next surface is a familiar structure, the elliptic cone. When centered at the origin, traces in two coordinate planes are intersecting lines, but traces parallel to these coordinate planes are hyperbolas.

There is much more information here than in the previous slide. There are circular cross sections as you move up and down the z-axis, and hyperbolic cross sections in planes parallel to the xz-plane and to the yz-plane.

Hyperbolic trace at x=2 The hyperbolic trace at x=-2 is on the back side of the surface. Circular traces at z=3 and at z=-3 y

The straight line traces at x=0 and the hypberbolic trace at y=-2 are on the back side.

The last quadric surface in this lesson is the hypberbolic paraboloid. The

standard equation is

to the power of 1. The traces parallel to two coordinate planes will be hyperbolas. Planes parallel to the third coordinate plane will have hyperbolic traces.

Traces parallel to the coordinate planes are ellipses. Surface is a sphere if a = b = c. For z > 0, traces are ellipses. Planes parallel to the xz- and yz planes are parabolas.

For the ellipsoid the z-axis is the major axis if c > a and c > b. The other surfaces in the table use the z-axis as the major axis. Adjustments to the equations can create surfaces with the y-axis or the x-axis as the major axis.
