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...

    I believe it's possible if you specify the domain.

    The only issue is the co-variant nature of that circle.

    I 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.

    I am too trying to figure out how piecewise function works for my brother

    It appears pretty intuitive until you figure out each specified domain must also account for different equations.

    Think about the function \[f(x)= \sqrt{1-x^2}\] compare it with the equation of a circle of radius 1 centered on the origin: \[x^2+y^2 = 1\]

    you can have a function alone, and be only a semi-circle a circle is compounded of two semicircles really each semi-circle occurs when you use the square root the square root has a + and a - part, thus \(\large \pm \sqrt{\quad}\)

    that only shows half of the circle..

    but I'm working on a piecewise project and I have to create a picture on a graph using piecewise functions and that's why I was wondering XD
