Example 3.3.13



 Give an equation for the elliptic cylinder whose central axis is the line through $\left(1,2,3\right)$, parallel to the $y$-axis. The cross sections perpendicular to the central axis should be ellipses with a vertical semi-major axis of length 3 and a horizontal semi-minor axis of length 1. Graph this cylinder for $y\in \left[1,5\right]$.
