Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, obviously only defined between 1<=z<=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when x=0 , z= 1 ( ie in the zy plane it is a horizontal line )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm pretty sure it would be the same thing as f(x)=cosx but just in 3D cartesian coordinates. It would be graphed on the xzplane.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No..i'm pretty sure it's supposed by be in the xzplane because it's a function of x and y. Kind of like f(x)=2x....the output is in the y direction. I think the output of f(x,y) is in the zdirection. Therefore, it would be the xzplane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would look like an undulating wave which would have a cross section for every y value that looked like a cosine function in x and z. But that would extend along the y axis infinitely.
