Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations

Tangent Planes

oThe tangent plane to the surface S at the point P is defined to be the plane that contains

both tangent lines T1 and T2

oThe tangent line S at P consists of all possible tangent lines at P to curves that lie on S

and pass through P

oTangent plane equation is below

Linear Approximations

oLinear approximation or tangent plane approximation (see below)
