How to | Plot Functions of Two Variables
Mathematica gives you the power to visualize functions of two variables in multiple ways, including three-dimensional parametric plots, spherical plots, polar plots, and contour plots.
Plot the function :
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
    
Plot several functions:
In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
    
Use ParametricPlot3D to plot the surface defined by :
In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
    
Create a polar plot of a sphere of unit radius:
In[4]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[4]=
    
Use ContourPlot3D to plot a function implicitly defined by :
In[6]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[6]=
