(note for editor; this is not a homework problem, this is bred out of my desire to visualize 3space)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hello fellows,

I am hoping that somebody can help me. I've asked multiple teachers and tutors, but nobody can solve my seemingly very easy problem.

I am taking a course in multivariable calculus. I never planned on going into math and physics, it just happened naturally. Anyways, we are getting into 3space, and I am having trouble seeing what graphs in 3space actually look like, when viewed in a plane. That's why I bought Mathematica, but I cannot figure out how to graph a function in 3space. If somebody could help me with what to do I could greatly appreciate it. The functions do not need to be complex, I just want to see what is going on in three dimensions visually.

Here are a few examples from my text, if you could show me the way to graph one of these in three dimensions I'm sure I can use that syntax to graph other functions.

Thank you in advance if you can help me out here.

I want to get something with three variables..

Okay..

6x + 2y + 3z = 6

Then maybe a sphere as well

x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = 4
