    Calculus-Contour Curves

    Hello!!!I hope you can help me at this exercise:
    Draw some contour curves in the (x, y)–plane of the function h(x,y)=(a*(x+y))/(x^2+y^2+a^2).
    I fixed and the plot can be seen here:(2*(x+y))/(x^2+y^2+4) - Wolfram|Alpha.
    But....how is the plot for any
    ???

    Re: Calculus-Contour Curves

    Hey mathmari.

    Can you get some sample values at different (x,y) points but in terms of a? That is the best you are going to do without actually substituting in a value for a itself.
