In geometry, the tangent line (or simply tangent) to a plane curve at a given point is the straight line that "just touches" the curve at that point. Informally, it is a line through a pair of infinitely close points on the curve. More precisely, a straight line is said to be a tangent of a curve is the derivative of f. A similar definition applies to space curves and curves in n-dimensional Euclidean space. - Source: Wikipedia
