Instructions: • If you get stuck, move on to the next question! You don’t have a lot of time. • Show all work if you want to get full credit. I reserve the right to take oﬀ points if I cannot see how you arrived at your answer even if your ﬁnal answer is correct. • No books, notes, electronics (incl. calculators and cell-phones) are allowed. • Good luck!

3. 3 . you may skip it and solve the other parts. (a) (3 points) Classify and sketch (very roughly) the surface given by the equation x2 − 2y 2 + z 2 + 2x − 6z + 12 = 0 (b) (2 points) Find the parametric equation of its axis of symmetry. ﬁnd the derivative ∂z ∂z and ∂y at the point (−1. ∂x (e) (2 points) Find the tangent plane at the point (−1.Problem 2 If you don’t know how to solve part of this problem. (d) (4 points) Viewing z as a function of independent variables x and y . 3. −1). −1). (c) (3 points) Describe all possible traces of this surface in planes parallel to xz -plane.

and no more than 0. Estimate the maximal error of s. then basic Archimedean principle tells you that the volume of the body is m1 − m2 . 4 . and therefore its density is 1 s = m1m −m2 Suppose you obtained measurements m1 = 100 gram and m2 = 90 gram and you know that the maximal error is no more than 0.Problem 3 (10 points) If you weigh a solid body in air (m1 ) and when submerged in water (m2 ).02 in absolute value when measuring m2 .01 in absolute value when measuring m1 .
