Parametric Curves

Institute of Mathematics, University of the Philippines Diliman

Mathematics 54–Elementary Analysis 2

Introduction

Consider a particle moving along the curve below

Introduction

The curve cannot be expressed as the graph of an equation of the form

y

=

f

(

x

).Sometimes, it’s impossible to ﬁnd an equation relating the

x

−

and

y

−

coordinatesof the particle.But we can express the

x

−

and the

y

−

component of the particle’s position asfunctions of time

t

, i.e.

x

=

x

(

t

)

y

=

y

(

t

)In this process, we say that we areparametrizing the curve above.The equations deﬁning

x

and

y

as functions of

t

are calledparametric equations,and

t

is called aparameter.
