Curved Surfaces in Space
Lecture no. 12 from the course: Understanding Multivariable Calculus: Problems, Solutions, and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Beginning with the equation of a sphere, apply what you’ve learned to curved surfaces by generating cylinders, ellipsoids, and other so-called quadric surfaces. Discover the recognizable parabolas and other 2D shapes that lay hidden in new vector equations, and observe surfaces of revolution in three-dimensional space.
