This is a common numerical problem when plotting as the function approaches a vertical asymptote.

Raising the number of points plotted will make the picture nicer.

```
var('x y')
plot(sqrt(2-x^2),(x,1,3),plot_points=10000)
```

Generally, to plot a circle, it might be best to use `implicit_plot`

.

```
var('x y')
implicit_plot(x^2+y^2==2,(x,-2,2),(y,-2,2))
```
