In all questions, no analytical work — no points.
1.
Given two planes with equations x + 2y + z = 1 and x − 2y + 3z = 3,
(a) Show that the planes are orthogonal.
(b) Find the plane that is orthogonal to the given ones and passes through the point
(1, −1, 2).
(15 points)
2.
Find all critical points of the function
f (x, y) = 3 + x2 + y 2 + xy 2 .
Determine the type of each point (minimum / maximum / saddle).
(15 points)
3.
A solid E is bounded by the cylinder x2 + y 2 = 1 (from the sides), the plane z = 4 (from
the top) and the paraboloid z = 1 − x2 − y 2 (from the bottom). Sketch the solid. If the
density at any point is proportional to its distance from the axis of the cylinder, find the
mass of E.

(y 2 + 1) dx + 2xy dy,
C
if
(a) C is the straight line from (−1, 0) to (1, 0).
(b) C is the arc of the circle x2 + y 2 = 1 going counter-clockwise from (−1, 0) to (1, 0).
(15 points)
5.
Calculate the mass of the (surface of the) hemisphere x2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1, z ≥ 0, if the density
function is ρ(x, y, z) = 1 − z 2 .
(15 points)
6.
Calculate the flux of F(x, y, z) = hx3 + y cos y, y 3 + x sin z, 3i across the surface of the solid
p

bounded by the hemispheres z = 4 − x2 − y 2 , z = 1 − x2 − y 2 and the plane z = 0.
The surface is oriented outward.
(15 points)
7.
Bonus question +10% (no partial credit): Cheburashka and Krokodil Gena are showing off their knowledge of vector calculus. Cheburashka is claiming that
curl div F = 0,
(1)
while Gena argues that, on the contrary,
div curl F = 0.
(2)
Who is correct? Prove the correct formula and explain why the other is wrong. Here F is
a smooth 3-dimensional field.
