Presentation Transcript

Chapter 14

14.5 Directional Derivatives and Gradient Vectors

Directional Derivatives in the Plane- The next map shows the contours on the area in New York. The tributary streams flow perpendicular to the contour.
- The streams are following paths of steepest descent so the water reach the river as quickly as possible.
- The instantaneous rate of change in a stream’s altitude above sea level has a particular direction.
- In this section why this “downhill” direction is perpendicular to the contours.
