Fundamental forms

Let be a parametrization of the graph T_h of Find the first fundamental form for and also compute the second fundamental form.

For the first fundamental form, I got that and Then and

How can I complete this?

Re: Fundamental forms

I advice that in your final answers, you use instead of \ and insted of as these were the variables given.
So you've computed the first fundamental form;

To get the second fundamental form, you of course need the Gauss map of the graph.

Using the formula and the rest is no stress.
