Calling Sequence

PlotVector(v, opts)

Parameters

v

-

Vector or list(Vector); specify which Vector(s) to plot

opts

-

(optional) plot options

Description

• 

The PlotVector(v) command takes a Vector or a list of Vectors, and plots them in the appropriate form:

– 

Free Vectors and rooted Vectors are plotted using plots[arrow]. Rooted Vectors are positioned correctly.

– 

Vector fields are plotted using plots[fieldplot] or plots[fieldplot3d]. If one or more ranges are missing in opts, a default range is applied.

• 

If v is a Vector, the plot options given in opts will be passed on to the appropriate plot command.

• 

If v is a list of Vectors, then the appropriate plotting command is invoked for each Vector in v with the plot options given in opts.

– 

To visually distinguish these Vectors in the plot, the colour plot option can be supplied as a list. If this is done, Vectors in v will be plotted using respective colours from this list. In particular, the colour list and the list of Vectors v must have the same size.

– 

Note that the colour option can also be given as color. For more information, please see plot/color and plot/colornames.

• 

Use PlotPositionVector to plot position Vectors.
