Problem 10

Roller Coaster 2: Figure 13-5n shows part of a roller coaster track. Its shape is a prolate cycloid (see 7) traced by a point P(x, y) on the flange of a wheel as the wheel rolls, without slipping, through an angle of t radians underneath the line y = 20. Point P(x, y), 12 feet from the center of the wheel, is at its top position, directly above the origin, when angle t = 0. The position vector (not shown) to point P(x, y) is the sum of four other vectors starting at the origin, . Find a vector equation for the track in terms of t. By plotting on your grapher, show that your equation is correct. Figure 13-5n
