13.1 Vector-valued function - A vector valued function is a function whose domain is all real numbers but its range is a set of vectors. r(t) = <f(t) , g(t), h(t)> r(t) = f(t)i -> + g(t) j -> + h(t) k -> r(t) = <1+t, 3t, -t> r(2) = <3,6,-2> ^ ^ real numbers vector In 2.D, the graph of r -> (t) = <f(t), g(t)> is a curve on the xy axes. Graph: r -> = <Sint, cost> , - <=t < 2pi r -> = <sint, cost> let's eliminate t x = sint 0 <= t < 2pi y = cost x 2 = sin 2 t y 2 = cos 2 t ----------- x 2 +y 2 = 1 t x y 0 0 1 pi/2 1 0 pi 0 -1 3pi/2 -1 0 2pi 0 1 The graph of r(t) = <f(t), g(t), h(t)> is called a curve but we need to show the surface which the curve lies on. Graph r(t) = <1+t, 3t, -t> and show the surface which the curve lies on

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
