Find an equation of the tangent plane to the given parametric surface at the specified point. Graph the surface and the tangent plane.37. r(u, v) = u2 i + 2u sin v j + u cos v k; u = 1, v = 0

To determine

To find: An equation of the tangent plane to the vector function r(u,v)=u2i+2usinvj+ucosvk;u=1,v=0 .

Explanation

Given data:

The vector function is given as follows.

r(u,v)=u2i+2usinvj+ucosvk;u=1,v=0

Formula used:

Write the expression to find tangent plane to the parametric surface with the normal vector n=a,b,c at the specified point (x0,y0,z0) .

a(xx0)+b(yy0)+c(zz0)=0 (1)

Write the expression to find normal vector from the tangent vectors of the parametric surface.

n=|ijka1b1c1a2b2c2| (2)

Here,

The vector a1,b1,c1 is a tangent vector ru of the parametric surface and

The vector a2,b2,c2 is a tangent vector rv of the parametric surface.

Write the expression to find the tangent vector ru of the parametric surface.

ru=xui+yuj+zuk (3)

Write the expression to find the tangent vector rv of the parametric surface.

rv=xvi+yvj+zvk (4)

Write the vector function as follows.

r(u,v)=u2i+2usinvj+ucosvk;u=1,v=0

Write the parametric equations from the vector function as follows.

x=u2,y=2usinv,z=ucosv

Calculation point in the surface (x0,y0,z0) :

Write the expression to find point (x0,y0,z0) in the surface.

(x0,y0,z0)=(u2,2usinv,ucosv)

Substitute 1 for u and 0 for v ,

(x0,y0,z0)=(12,2(1)sin(0),(1)cos(0))=(1,0,1)

Calculation of tangent vector ru :

Substitute u2 for x , 2usinv for y , and ucosv for z in equation (3),

ru=(u2)ui+(2usinv)uj+(ucosv)uk=[u(u2)]i+[u(2usinv)]j+[u(ucosv)]k=2ui+2sinvj+cosvk=2u,2sinv,cosv

Substitute 1 for u and 0 for v ,

ru=2(1),2sin(0),cos(0)=2,0,1

Calculation of tangent vector rv :

Substitute u2
