Calculus 3D Plots

Postby Scott_Bennett » Tue Apr 13, 2010 2:00 pm

I am trying to use RevolutionPlot3D. Is it possible to plot more than one fucntion in the same output? I have tried it putting{} around the set of funtions and I am not getting them. Any suggestions?

Sure you can
from the documentation
RevolutionPlot3D[{{f},{g},...},...]] plots surfaces corresponding to all the functions f, g, ... .

so try this
RevolutionPlot3D[(t^4 - t^2), {t, 0, 1}]
RevolutionPlot3D[{{2 + Cos[2 \[Pi] t], Sin[2 \[Pi] t]}}, {t, 0, 1}]
RevolutionPlot3D[{{(t^4 - t^2)}, {{2 + Cos[2 \[Pi] t],
Sin[2 \[Pi] t]}}}, {t, 0, 1}]
