Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rsaad, when you have a surface such as this, you may construct a function\[f(x,y,z)= \sqrt{x^2+y^2}+(x^2+y^2)^{3/2}z\]The gradient of this scalar function will then yield a vector that is normal to the surface.\[\nabla f(x,y,z)=\left( \frac{\partial f}{\partial x},\frac{\partial f}{\partial y},\frac{\partial f}{\partial z} \right)\]\[=\left( \frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}+3x \sqrt{x^2+y^2},\frac{y}{\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}+3y \sqrt{x^2+y^2},1 \right)\]
