1. Find unit normal to the surface point (4 ,-2 , 1 )
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
i differentiate r with respect to u and achieve ( 0 , -v , 2u ) --- eqn 1
i differentiate r with respect to v and achieve ( 2v , -u , 0 ) ---- eqn 2
at point (4 ,-2 , 1 ),
( v^2 = 4 , -uv = -2 , u^2 = 1 ) ,<---- i like to ask if this step is correct?
v = 2 , u = 1
sub in the u & v values to eqn 1 & 2 and cross the 2 vector to achieve normal vector....
many thanks!
