Direction Fields and Solution Curves
- Dr. Doug Davis, 3D
- Differential Equation
A direction field or slope field for a first order ordinary differential equation has the slope, , indicated with a short line at several points. The solutions of the differential equation will be tangent to these short lines. Here you can enter the right side of the first order differential equation and the ranges. Up to 10 numerical solution curves can be added to visualize different possible solutions with the add solution button. Each solution can be adjusted by moving the associated point. Note: Changing will redistribute the solution set points along the axis or along
