Integrate Planar Vector Field

Description

This template provides the flow lines for a planar vector field. Enter the required data, then click on the graph for the flow line through that initial point.

Instructions

• 

To begin, enter the necessary information into the fields below:

– 

  the bounds for the plot window. Alternatively, use the button to Insert Defaults for the bounds.

– 

  the components of the vector field

– 

  the coordinate system and variable names

– 

  the path parameter, given in the form atb. Alternatively, use the button to Insert Defaults for the bounds.

 

• 

Click the Enter Data button to obtain a graph of the vector field.

• 

Click on the plot area and select the Click and Drag Manipulator ( ) from the Plot menu or plotting toolbar. Then click anywhere in the vector field to see the flow line through that point.

• 

The Erase Graph button erases the vector field and all flow lines. The Clear All button clears every field in the template.
