I am new here. Not sure if this is the right section, if not please move it to the right section.
Basically what I am trying to do is, I have a straight line in X with many points. I want to modify this line by using x of each point and push it upward to form a cycloid. I looked at the cycloid formula and it has 2 equations for x and y. Since I don't want to modify x, I tried to pull y to one side using this formula:
But got stuck and wasn't sure if that was gonna work 100%.
If I was using a sine wave, then it would be like this:
y = sin ( x )
Any ideas if what I am asking is doable?
