Instead of specifying a curve as y = y ( x ), we specify both coordinates as function of some parameter t . Lecture 3: Lines and Planes in Three Dimensions Parametric equations. Instead of specifying a curve as y = y ( x ), we specify both coordinates as function of some parameter t . There are two equations specifiying the curve, x = x ( t ) and y = y ( t ). Lecture 3: Lines and Planes in Three Dimensions Parametric equations. Instead of specifying a curve as y = y ( x ), we specify both coordinates as function of some parameter t . There are two equations specifiying the curve, x = x ( t ) and y = y ( t ). Imagine that a particle is traveling along the curve and that the parameter t represents time. Then at time t , the particle is at location ( x ( t ) , y ( t ))....
