# 3D Grapher with contour plot

By Murray Bourne, 31 Oct 2009

I recently added a 3D Grapher on IntMath.com, here: 3D and Contour Grapher.

It's Flash-based, and you can enter your own 3D function, which requires the variables *x* and *y*. The syntax for adding functions is fairly standard. You can enter examples like these:

- x^2+y^2
- e^(x-y)
- sqrt(2x^3+y^2)
- sin(x+y) [trigonometric functions require brackets]

I obtained this mathematical model for an outdoor chair using the interactive:

Its function is *z = f*(*x,y*) = *x*^{2} - *y*^{3}.

Have a play with the 3D and Contour Grapher and let me know what you think.
