##Vector components are converted from symoblic into anonymous form which allows them to be graphed

## Vector components are converted from symbolic into "anonymous functions" which allows them to be graphed.
##The '1' & '2', in vector(1) & vector(2) are indeces for the vector.

## The "'vars', [x y]" syntax ensures each component is a function of both 'x' & 'y'
##The " 'vars', [x y]" syntax tells function_handle that each component is a function of both 'x' & 'y'
