find gradient and then neg. gradient should be all i believe, if I am not mistaken
anonymous
  • anonymous
then once you find those, divide by length
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes

\[f(x,y,z)=x^2+2yz^3-3=0 \rightarrow \nabla f=(2x,2z^3,0)\]will be normal to the surface at (x,y,z). Then,\[\pm \frac{\nabla f(x,y,z)}{|\nabla f(x,y,z)|}=\pm \frac{(2x,2z^3,0)}{\sqrt{4x^2+4z^6}}\]

  • anonymous
Substitute \[(x,y,z)=(1,-1,-1)\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait..
anonymous
  • anonymous
forgot z
anonymous
  • anonymous
why the 0 term at the end?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah...because i just got up ;)
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, ok I see
anonymous
  • anonymous
:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah, that is the gradient I got, with the last term being 6yz^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\nabla (x,y,z)=(2x,2z^3,6yz^2)\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah

how do you type in all those commands? that is cool, is there a manual around that I could look at some of those in?
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\pm \frac{\nabla (x,y,z)}{|\nabla (x,y,z)|}= \pm \frac{(2x,2z^3,6yz^2)}{\sqrt{4x^2+4z^6+36y^2z^4}}\]

I wish there was a manual. I find everything by trial-and-error. Just use the equation editor on the bottom.

  • anonymous
You can take out a common factor of 2 between the numerator and denominator if you're desperate...
anonymous
  • anonymous
But, cquinn, all you need to do now is sub (x,y,z)=(1,-1,-1).
anonymous
  • anonymous
ahh, didn't recognize that at the bottom. will fiddle around with it some
anonymous
  • anonymous
have fun!

Thanks so much!! This helps a TON
