1. [25pts] Show that the equation x2 +4x+y 2 +4y+z 2 = 0 is a sphere and determine its center and radius.
2. [25pts] Determine whether the vectors v1 = h1, −1, −1i and v2 = h2, −2, 4i are orthogonal, parallel or
3. [50pts] Find parametric equations and symmetric equations for the line passing through A (1, 0, −1)
and B (2, 1, 3).
1. x2 + 4x + y 2 + 4y + z 2 = 0 is equivalent to
x2 + 4x + y 2 + 4y + z 2 = 0
⇔
⇔
(x + 2)2 − 4 + (y + 2)2 − 4 + z 2 = 0
(x + 2)2 + (y + 2)2 + z 2 = 8
We recognize the equation of the sphere with center (−2, −2, 0) and radius
√
√
8 = 2 2.
2. We remark that the dot product v1 • v2 = 0 so v1 and v2 are orthogonal .
