# Space curve

A curve C in E3 is the locus of point (x,y,z) whose Cartesian coordinates x,y,z are function of single parameter t.  A curve in space in parametric form is given by the equations                 x=f(t), y=g(t), z=h(t)    In the parametric form, a space curve s defined as locus of a point whose Cartesian coordinates x,y,z are function of single parameter.  In the parametric form, equation of space curve is given by                                                ......................(1) The equation given in (1) is called explicit form or parametric form of space curve. For example,          is a space curve. १। यसपछिको GeoGebra Applet मा तपाईहरुले parametric equation change गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ । जस्तै, x=1+t भएको ठाउमा 1-t वा अरु कुनै t को expression लेख्न सक्नुहुन्छ । २। Point P=(x,y,z) मा check/un-check गरेर 3D graph मा point लाई locate गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ। ३। Animate point P मा Click गरेर Point P को motion हेर्न सक्नुहुन्छ। र Stop मा Click गरेर Point P को motion लाई stop गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।
