In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

In chapter 1, we talked about parametric equations.

Parametric equations can be used to describe motion that is not a function.

If f and g have derivatives at t, then the parametrized curve also has a derivative at t.


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

The formula for finding the slope of a parametrized curve is:

This makes sense if we think about canceling dt.


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

The formula for finding the slope of a parametrized curve is:

We assume that the denominator is not zero.


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

To find the second derivative of a parametrized curve, we find the derivative of the first derivative:

  • Find the first derivative (dy/dx).

2. Find the derivative of dy/dx with respect to t.

3. Divide by dx/dt.


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

Example:


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

Example:

  • Find the first derivative (dy/dx).


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

2. Find the derivative of dy/dx with respect to t.

Quotient Rule


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

3. Divide by dx/dt.


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

The equation for the length of a parametrized curve is similar to our previous “length of curve” equation:

(Notice the use of the Pythagorean Theorem.)


In chapter 1 we talked about parametric equations

Likewise, the equations for the surface area of a parametrized curve are similar to our previous “surface area” equations:
