comet3

3-D comet plot

Syntax

comet3(z)
comet3(x,y,z)
comet3(x,y,z,p)
comet3(axes_handle,...)

Description

A comet plot is an animated graph in which a circle (the comet head) traces the data points on the screen. The comet body is a trailing segment that follows the head. The tail is a solid line that traces the entire function.

comet3(z) displays a 3-D comet graph of the vector z.

comet3(x,y,z) displays a comet graph of the curve through the points [x(i),y(i),z(i)].

comet3(x,y,z,p) specifies a comet body of length p*length(y). p must be between 0 and 1.

comet3(axes_handle,...) plots into the axes with the handle axes_handle instead of into the current axes (gca).

Create 3-D Comet Graph

t = -10*pi:pi/250:10*pi;
x = (cos(2*t).^2).*sin(t);
y = (sin(2*t).^2).*cos(t);
comet3(x,y,t);
