## Parameterizing

### Parametric

For the parametric plots, use "set parametric." Then, you will have a message, "dummy variable is t for curves, u/v for surfaces." Namely, you are allowed to use "t" for 2D parametric plots, and "u" and "v" for 3D parametric plots.Let's plot a curve with x = t and y = t

^{2}.

gnuplot> set parametric

gnuplot> plot t, t**2

gnuplot> plot t, t**2

gnuplot> set parametric

gnuplot> splot cos(u)*cos(v),sin(u)*cos(v),sin(v)

gnuplot> splot cos(u)*cos(v),sin(u)*cos(v),sin(v)

### Polar

It is similar to the parametric option. The dummy parameter, t, represents the angle in radians. The 3D plot is not available for this option. Let's plot the following example:
gnuplot> set polar

gnuplot> plot t

gnuplot> plot t

^{5}(t/12).

gnuplot> set polar

gnuplot> plot exp(cos(t))-2*cos(4*t)+(sin(t/12))**5

gnuplot> plot exp(cos(t))-2*cos(4*t)+(sin(t/12))**5
