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

Parametrize the part of the cylinder 4y^2 + z^2 = 36 between the planes x= -3 and x=7

3. The attempt at a solution

radius=6

Parametric equations:

x=x

y=4 + 6cos(theta)

z=6sin(theta)

in vector form

[tex]\widehat{}r[/tex]= x[tex]\widehat{}i[/tex] + (4 + 6cos(theta))[tex]\widehat{}j[/tex] + 6sin(theta)[tex]\widehat{}k[/tex]

-3 [tex]\leq[/tex] x [tex]\leq[/tex] 7

I really don't know if I'm completing correctly, any direction would be appreciated. Thanks!
