Student[VectorCalculus][SpaceCurve] - plot a space curve in R^2 or R^3

Calling Sequence

SpaceCurve(C, t=a..b, opts)

Parameters

C

-

Vector; specify the components of the curve

t

-

name; specify the parameter of the curve

a, b

-

real constants; specify the range of the curve

opts

-

equation(s) of the form option=value where option is one of caption or Student plot options;

Description

• 

The SpaceCurve(C, t=a..b) calling sequence plots a space curve in R^2 or R^3. The plot is displayed in Cartesian coordinates.

• 

The opts argument can contain any of the Student plot options or caption

– 

caption = string A caption for the plot.  The default is Graph of the curve represented parametrically by the components of the given vector.  For more information about specifying a caption , see plot/typesetting.
