Using Maple 11 for calculus problems

  1. Apr 30, 2008 #1
    For a function f(x,y) what commands do I use to plot the coresponding surface from, say, -2 </= x, y </= 2? How would I then plot contours?

    For the example I have chosen [tex]f(x,y)=\frac{x}{\sqrt{1+x^2+y^2}}[/tex].

    Code (Text):
    restart;
    with(plots);
    f:=(x,y)->x/(1+x^2+y^2)^(1/2);
    plot3d(f(x,y),x=-2..2,y=-2..2);
    contourplot(f(x,y),x=-2..2,y=-2..2,contours=25);
