 Posted: 02 Mar 2010 01:47:34 pm    Post subject: Okay, here is a fully working version (at least I think): Code: ```Radian ClrHome Input "DY/DX ", Str1 String>Equ(Str1,Y1 FnOff 0.0325(Xmax-Xmin)→C 0.0325(Ymax-Ymin)→D For(A,1,9 For(B,1,9 Xmin+B(Xmax-Xmin)/10→X Ymax-A(Ymax-Ymin)/10→Y Y1→M tan-1(M→O Line(Ccos(O)+X, Dsin(O)+Y, -Ccos(O)+X, -Dcos(O)+Y End End``` Let me know if this works out right.

For some reason it doesn't seem to do the correct field for dy/dx=x. I might have typed something in wrong though. Also, could you explain some of the math? I'm getting lost a little in it, just would like to know what's happening. Also, here is my revised code. It still isn't perfect but it's better. The steep slopes don't look that good though, still working on it. Code: ```ClrDraw Input Str1 For(X,Xmin,Xmax expr(Str1→M For(B,Ymin,Ymax MX+B→D -D+(B+M(X+.35→E D-(B+M(X-.35→F Line(X+.35,B+E,X-.35,B-F End End``` Hope Wesley and I are helping. P.S. Mine works better at a closer window (like -5 to 5 on x and y and such).Last edited by Guest on 01 Jul 2010 09:32:12 am; edited 1 time in total

They should have been -D+(B+M(X+.35→E and D-(B+M(X-.35→F. I fixed it in the post with the code so now that code should be correct haha. If you still want explanations then just say.Last edited by Guest on 01 Jul 2010 09:32:35 am; edited 1 time in total

 Posted: 02 Mar 2010 08:54:58 pm    Post subject: Ok. So the line MX+B→D is storing the y-value for the center of the line that will be generated. The next two lines (the ones you're asking about) are finding the y-values of X±.35 units. Then to obtain the right point, subtract D (The y-value of the center) from M(X+.35)+B. On the left side you subtract the value obtained from M(X-.35)+B from D. These basically give you two points that, when connected, create the slope line at the center point. You add B to these values in the Line( command to shift it all up into view. Hopefully that makes sense.Last edited by Guest on 01 Jul 2010 09:33:14 am; edited 1 time in total

Also, could you explain some of the math? I'm getting lost a little in it, just would like to know what's happening. I looks like it works to me... (see attachment) I am simply using the unit circle. All the math is within these two lines: Code: ```tan-1(Y0→θ Line(Ccos(θ)+X,Dsin(θ)+Y,‾Ccos(θ)+X,‾Dsin(θ)+Y``` The X and Y are simply offsets to place the lines correctly. We have the derivative right? So if we take the arctangent of the function at that point, X, then we have the slope of the line. By this we can use Cos and Sin to get the correct angle at which the line resides. C and D are simply constants to create a specific size for the lines.Last edited by Guest on 01 Jul 2010 09:33:38 am; edited 1 time in total

Mine is smaller in size but yours solves the spacing issue mine has.Last edited by Guest on 01 Jul 2010 09:34:05 am; edited 1 time in total

Change in y over the change in x? Same here, that's basically what mine does too. It finds the slope, then plots two points that create a line on the slope line. If that makes sense haha. By the way, Thornahawk, could you explain your code a little?Last edited by Guest on 03 Mar 2010 11:43:25 pm; edited 1 time in total

First, a picture: The line segment in the picture obviously has the slope m. What should the value of x be such that the length of the segment is h? (Hint: Pythagoras may be of service). Shift the origin such that the line segment starts at an arbitrary point, and you have the formulae in my program. thornahawk
