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
=
 f  
(
).Sometimes, it’s impossible to find an equation relating the
and
coordinatesof the particle.But we can express the
and the
component of the particle’s position asfunctions of time
, i.e.
=
(
)
 y 
=
(
)In this process, we say that we areparametrizing the curve above.The equations defining 
and
as functions of 
are calledparametric equations,and
is called aparameter.
