What is the correlation between dr/dt of a vector formula ______i + ______j and dy/dx of its parametric equivalent of x=_____t and y=______t ?
For example in 3cos(t)i+3sin(t)j
This is confusing to me as I understand that one is taking the derivative of x with respect to y and one x and y both with respect to t, but graphically it makes no sense to me that there would be no correlation which is what my math teacher claims.
Yeah I know but what's the relation between those two rates of change? Like at a certain x or t value the slopes of the tangent lines from dr/dt and dy/dx are different... Dr/dt evaluated at a certain t value gives you a slope of a tangent vector to the circle but and dydx gives you a slope of a tangent line to the circle... but they're different
