Slice Curves (Page: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 )


We begin the study of a function f of two variables r and θ in polar coordinates by fixing one of the variables to produce a function of a single variable defined over an interval.

The collection of points (r,θ0,f(r,θ0)) in the vertical plane θ = θ0 is the graph of the slice function over θ = θ0, called the slice curve for θ = θ0.
