    a) Find a parametric representation of the tangent line to the curve C2 at t = 1
    b) Derive the equation of the normal plane to the curve C2 at t = 1, of this form
    ax + by +cz = d

    c) Find the distance of the plan in (b) and the origin (0,0,0)
    d) Find the speed of the curve C2 as a function of t
    e) Find the length of the curve C2 (between t = 0 and t = 2)
