(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find a vector function that represents the curve of the intersection of two surfaces.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]z^2=x^2+y^2[/tex] with plane [tex]z=1+y[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

So shouldn't it be

[tex]r(t)=<cos(t), sin(t), 1+sin(t)>[/tex]

since x=cos(t), y=sin(t), and z= 1+sin(t)?

The book gives a wacky answer
