plottools[ellipticArc] - generate 2-D plot object for an elliptic arc

Calling Sequence

ellipticArc(c, a, b, r, filled=boolean, numpoints=n, options)

Parameters

c

-

center of the ellipticArc

a

-

major of the ellipticArc

b

-

minor of the ellipticArc

r

-

range of the arc in radians

filled=boolean

-

(optional) whether to fill the inside of the arc, default=false

numpoints=n

-

(optional) number of points to evaluate, default=50

options

-

(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot/options.

Description

• 

The ellipticArc command creates a two-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is an elliptic arc of an ellipse centered at c with major a and minor b.  The arc ranges in r.

• 

The plot data object produced by the ellipticArc command can be used in a PLOT data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.

• 

Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot/options.

Examples

c:=ellipticArc1,1,2,3,0..3π4:

d:=ellipticArc0,0,3,4,3π4..2π,filled=true,color=green:
