Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Absolute value of a vector

See Magnitude of a vector.

• Closed interval

An interval that includes its endpoints

• Complements or complementary angles

Two angles of positive measure whose sum is 90°

• Data

Facts collected for statistical purposes (singular form is datum)

• Double-angle identity

An identity involving a trigonometric function of 2u

• Equal matrices

Matrices that have the same order and equal corresponding elements.

• Imaginary axis

See Complex plane.

• Instantaneous velocity

The instantaneous rate of change of a position function with respect to time, p. 737.

• Length of a vector

See Magnitude of a vector.

• Nappe

See Right circular cone.

• PH

The measure of acidity

• Polar coordinate system

A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

The measure of an angle in radians, or, for a central angle, the ratio of the length of the intercepted arc tothe radius of the circle.

• Rational function

Function of the form ƒ(x)/g(x) where ƒ(x) and g(x) are polynomials and g(x) is not the zero polynomial.

• Recursively defined sequence

A sequence defined by giving the first term (or the first few terms) along with a procedure for finding the subsequent terms.

• Removable discontinuity at x = a

lim x:a- ƒ(x) = limx:a+ ƒ(x) but either the common limit is not equal ƒ(a) to ƒ(a) or is not defined

• Slope-intercept form (of a line)

y = mx + b

• Stretch of factor c

A transformation of a graph obtained by multiplying all the x-coordinates (horizontal stretch) by the constant 1/c, or all of the y-coordinates (vertical stretch) of the points by a constant c, c, > 1.

A graph in which (-x, y) is on the graph whenever (x, y) is; or a graph in which (-r, -?) or (r, ?, -?) is on the graph whenever (r, ?) is

• Translation

See Horizontal translation, Vertical translation.
