Student[MultivariateCalculus][CrossSectionTutor] - plot or animate the intersection between a curve and a plane

Calling Sequence

CrossSectionTutor()

CrossSectionTutor(f(x,y), g(x,y,z)=K, x=a..b, y=c..d)

CrossSectionTutor(f(x,y,z), g(x,y,z)=K, x=a..b, y=c..d, z=e..f)

Parameters

f(x, y)

-

(optional) algebraic function in two variables

f(x, y, z)

-

(optional) equation in three variables

g(x, y, z)

-

(optional) linear algebraic function representing the plane

K

-

(optional) constant, list, or range representing the constant in the plane equation

x, y, z

-

(optional) variable

a..b, c..d, e..f

-

(optional) intervals

Description

• 

The CrossSectionTutor command launches a tutor interface that computes, plots, and animates the resultant cross section between plane(s) and a curve.

  

If f(x,y), g(x,y,z)=K, x=a..b, y=c..d, and z=e..f are not specified, CrossSectionTutor uses defaults.

• 

The CrossSection command offers equivalent capabilities to CrossSectionTutor where interaction takes place in the worksheet interface. See the Student[MultivariateCalculus][CrossSection] help page.

• 

To change the default colors of the plot objects, see the Student[SetColors] help page.

• 

When the CrossSectionTutor is running, interaction with the worksheet is not possible.
