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]=
