parametric equations. The tangent line, suitably directed,

models the direction of the motion at the point of tangency.

y

A vector is tangent or normal to a curve at a point P if it is parallel or normal, respectively, to the line that is tangent to the curve at P.

Finding Vectors Tangent and Normal to a Curve

Find unit vectors tangent and normal to the parametrized curve

at the point where .

Tangent slope:

A basic vector with a slope of 1/2:

To find the unit vector, divide v by its magnitude:

Finding Vectors Tangent and Normal to a Curve

Find unit vectors tangent and normal to the parametrized curve

at the point where .

The other unit vector:

To find the normal vectors (with opposite reciprocal slopes),

interchange components and change one of the signs:

Finding Ground Speed and Direction

An airplane, flying due east at 500 mph in still air, encounters a

70-mph tail wind acting in the direction north of east. The

airplane holds its compass heading due east but, because of the

wind, acquires a new ground speed and direction. What are they?

Let a = airplane velocity and w = wind velocity.

N

We need the magnitude of the resultant a + w and the measure of angle theta.
