How do I add a tangent plane and normal vector to this plot?

I am not opposed to Matlab or Latex either.

Hi dwsmith, :)

I haven't done this nor do I use Matlab, but I found >>this<< which may help you to construct a tangent plane to any given surface. For surface norms refer >>this<<.

Kind Regards,
