300 CHAPTER 3. REAL-VALUED FUNCTIONS: DIFFERENTIATION Another function is −→ p ( r,θ ) = ( r cos θ,r sin θ, 0) or x = r cos θ y = r sin θ z = 0 which describes the xy -plane in polar coordinates; the partials are −→ p ∂r ( r,θ ) = (cos θ ) −→ ı + (sin θ ) −→ −→ p ∂θ ( r,θ ) = ( r sin θ ) −→ ı + ( r cos θ ) −→ ; these are independent unless r = 0, so we get a regular parametrization of the xy -plane provided we stay away from the origin. We can similarly parametrize the sphere of radius
