Unformatted text preview: as a parametric vector form. 0 Conversion from parametric vector form to Cartesian form. Let us start from a line in parametric vector form (”3) = mom. 3,! I112 1’2 Obviously, we can find two different points (x1,y1)and($2,yg) on the line by choosing two different values for the parameter, then we can find the Cartesian equation of the line by the two-point form 29‘ — 191 = :92 — 111 SE — $1 $2 — $1 higher dimension cases. By comparing the components of the vectors on the left side and right side of the parametric vector form, we can express the line as a pair of parametric equations: . However, we would like to use a method which can be easily generalised to the $=a1+Av13 y=a2+Av2. Then we can eliminate the parameter A to get the line in Cartesian form. ...

    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.

    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.
