Graphing Parametric Functions
To use, type in the parametric equation components in the provided boxes. The blue function is the component, the red function is the component. On the left viewing window, the blue dot will follow the value and the red dot will follow the value. The purple dot will follow the and values at the same time, thus will trace out a graph of the parametric function!
Click on "Show Position Vector" to hide/unhide the vector-value of the parametric function. To see the velocity and acceleration vectors, check/uncheck the corresponding boxes. [CTRL+] and [CTRL-] will zoom in and out, respectively. Holding down [CTRL] and dragging will move the axes. Applet Updated 06.20.2013 - Functions can now be input in terms of t. Applet Updated 03.31.2014 - Works with the current version of Geogebra.
