Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is \[ \frac{d\overrightarrow{r}(t)}{dt}\]a constant or a function of t? let's find out. \[\frac{d\overrightarrow{r}(t)}{dt}= (\frac{dx}{dt} , \frac{dy}{dt} , \frac{dz}{dt})\] \[=(2t2 , 1 ,2t+t)\]which is still a function of t, so the slope of the curve is changing in the x direction and the z direction. because of this the curve cannot be a plane curve
