How to | Plot Parametric Functions

The Wolfram Language can plot parametric functions in both two and three dimensions. Use a parametric plot when you can express the and or , , and coordinates at each point on your curve as a function of one or more parameters.

Plot the parametric curve where the parameter varies from to :

In[1]:=

Out[1]=
    

You can plot two parametric curves by putting them in a list:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
    

Plot more parametric curves by adding them to the list:

In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
    

Use ParametricPlot3D to plot the surface defined by :

In[1]:=

Plot the parametric curve in 3D:
