If the curve of intersection of the parabolic cylinder

y = x^2

and the top half of the ellipsoid

x^2 + 5y^2 + 5z^2 = 25.

Then find parametric equations for this curve.

the cylinder has parametric equations

x = t

y = t^2

Intersect that with the ellipsoid and you get

x = t

y = t^2

z = 1/5 √(25-t^2-5t^4)

I got sqrt 5 on the bottom

- Calculus 3 - Damon is correct -

and you would be correct.

I knew there was something not right.
