Py5Graphics.bezier_tangent()

Calculates the tangent of a point on a Bezier curve.

Description

Calculates the tangent of a point on a Bezier curve. There is a good definition of tangent on Wikipedia.

This method is the same as bezier_tangent() but linked to a Py5Graphics object. To see example code for how it can be used, see bezier_tangent().

Underlying Java method: PGraphics.bezierTangent

Syntax

bezier_tangent(a: float, b: float, c: float, d: float, t: float, /) -> float

Parameters

  • a: float - coordinate of first point on the curve

  • b: float - coordinate of first control point

  • c: float - coordinate of second control point

  • d: float - coordinate of second point on the curve

  • t: float - value between 0 and 1
