Hello everybody...
I have a problem, can help me with this??
A torus of radius 3 (and cross-sectional radius 1) can be represented parametrically by the function
by:
where D is the rectangle given by .
Help please.
First find the tangent vectors $\displaystyle T_{\theta}$ and $\displaystyle T_{\phi}$
In this problem, for example, $\displaystyle T_{\theta} = \frac {\partial \Phi}{\partial \theta} = (-(3+cos\phi)sin \theta, (3+cos \phi)cos \theta,0) $
Then find the cross product of $\displaystyle T_{\theta}$ and $\displaystyle T_{\phi}$
Now you have a vector normal to the surface of the torus. Find the magnitude of this vector.
then surface area of the torus =$\displaystyle \int^{2 \pi}_{0} \int^{2 \pi}_{0} ||T_{\theta} \times T_{\phi}|| d \phi d \theta $
