# Plotting Vector-Valued Functions

Plotting Vector-Valued Functions

One way to represent a vector-valued function is to graph the parametric plot for , on the plane, the parametric plot for , on the plane, and the parametric plot for , on the plane. The graph of the vector-valued function then shows each of these parametric plots as their orthogonal projections onto each of the coordinate planes.
