Is it possible to have a piecewise function with only part of a circle?.. I know the equation isn't a function so I'm not sure if it's an actual thing...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe it's possible if you specify the domain.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only issue is the covariant nature of that circle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I tried and it didn't do it :O that's why I was wondering.. I have a project where I have to make a picture using piecewise functions and I only need part of a circle but I can't figure out how to do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It appears pretty intuitive until you figure out each specified domain must also account for different equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Think about the function \[f(x)= \sqrt{1x^2}\] compare it with the equation of a circle of radius 1 centered on the origin: \[x^2+y^2 = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can have a function alone, and be only a semicircle a circle is compounded of two semicircles really each semicircle occurs when you use the square root the square root has a + and a  part, thus \(\large \pm \sqrt{\quad}\)
