Derivative of a Vector-Valued Function in 2D
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration shows the definition of a derivative for a vector-valued function in two dimensions. In the limit as approaches zero, the difference quotient vector (in green) approaches the tangent vector to the curve (in red).[more]
You can drag the point on the curve to show the behavior at other locations.[less]
