hi,
i have two quistions
1. how to draw graph by using Plot3D for "x^2+y^2=z^2"
2. in Plot3d how to change the Symmetry axis in the graph, in x^2+y^2=z^2 by changing the Symmetry axis to y.

1.

My experience has been that it's hard to plot non-functions in Mathematica. So my approach would be:

Code:
Line 1: f[x_, y_] := Sqrt[x^2 + y^2]
Line 2: Plot3D[{f[x, y], -f[x, y]}, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}]
2.

I don't know what you mean by this.

3. Clarification for 2

thanks alot for your help

in the x^2+y^2=z^2 the Symmetry axis is Z axis, and i have to change it to another Coordinate axis, like y or x

I guess you mean plane of symmetry is z = 0, and you want to change it to y = 0.

First of all, x^2+y^2=z^2 is already symmetric about the plane y = 0.

Second, if you want to rotate the graph, couldn't you just write x^2 + z^2 = y^2?

5. thanks i will try your Suggestion, but it will not rotate, its shows the same graph

Sorry, I just realized there is a special rotational symmetry about the z-axis, and no need to interpret with planes. If you want to change this to the y-axis then x^2+z^2=y^2 should be it.

7. its shows the same graph without rotating

You probably didn't type it in properly. You have to solve for z.

Code:
Line 1: f[x_, y_] := Sqrt[y^2 - x^2]
Line 2: Plot3D[{f[x, y], -f[x, y]}, {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10, 10}]

9. thankssssssssssssssssssssss
