That really did confuse me. So basically, it only works at the top level. Ok, so I will just have to define the parameters as variables. Sep 14 accepted How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Sep 14 comment How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Sorry, I meant variables, not functions. You've almost sold me that this should be the way to go, except for one thing. It seems to work when you Evaluate, but not plot (see my edit to the original question). Isn't there someway we could just include an Evaluate command and keep m1, m2 as parameters? Sep 14 comment How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Thanks @celtschk, what about the case where I evaluate the function, but don't plot it (please see my edited question above). Why would this work, but not the plot? Sep 14 revised How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Further example Sep 14 comment How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Thanks @Vitaliy. So the key change here is to put the parameters m1 and m2 as functions, right? I guess that is just the way you should do things in Mathematica. But for some reason it doesn't seem right to me. For example, if I wanted to differentiate bigA with respect to t, would m1 and m2 still be kept symbolic? Sep 14 asked How are parameters evaluated for a Plot in Manipulate Sep 14 comment How can define a set of nested parameters Thanks @b.gatessucks, I guess that would work. But in the latter example, I would have to input the m1, m2 data twice. Sep 14 asked How can define a set of nested parameters Sep 11 accepted How to make a tight crop of a 3d plot? Sep 11 comment How to make a tight crop of a 3d plot? haha, ok cool, so changing the opacity of the sphere fixes it. Why didn't I think of that! Cheers. Sep 11 comment How to make a tight crop of a 3d plot? that definitely helps, but in the plot that I am after, it crops some of the object (see my edit to the question).
