Hopefully this forum is okay to make the following inquiry (or in general): Anyone know of a parametric representation of z = (x^2 + y^2) ^ (1/2)?
I'd like to apply the 2 variable chain rule to diff. it in terms of t & need a push in the right direction.
Thanks in advance for any insightful replies specifically related to the question.
This is one equation but it has 2 unknowns. Without a single valued function establishing the relationship between X and Y, an infinite number of
(X,Y) pair solutions exist for every value of Z. Without this second equation it is impossible to rewrite it in terms of some parametric variable
