Slopes of Parametrized Curves
A parametrized curve (x(t), y(t)) is differentiable at t if x and y are differentiable at t. At a point on a differentiable parametrized curve where y is also a differentiable function of x, the derivatives dy/dt, dx/dt, and dy/dx are related by the Chain Rule: Usually, we write this in a different form… If all three derivatives exist and ,

Practice Problems Find the equation of the line tangent to the curve at the point defined by the given value of t. Find the three derivatives:
