This demo includes two windows. The first displays the curve X(t) that
you can alter in the
appropriately labeled textbox, the point X(t0), and the
X'(t0) with base X(t0). The second window
displays the velocity vector
X'(t0) with its base at the origin and the curve X'(t0)
traced out by the head
of the vector. You also have the option of showing the
acceleration vector X''(t0) tangent to the curve in the
at the point X'(t0) by clicking the appropriate checkbox in
window. To move the point X(t0) along the curve, use the
buttons in the control window:
[<]: Decrease t0 by one step.
[>]: Increase t0 by one step.
[<<]: Decrease t0 until it reaches its minimum value.
[>>]: Increase t0 until it reaches its maximum value.
By default, the demo shows the point tracing out the curve, so that
only part of it is shown. To show the entire curve, check the box "Show
entire curve" by clicking on it. Click on the "Show position vector X(t0)"
box to show the position vector X(t0) whose components
are the coordinates of the point X(t0).
