    Drawing a graph: X and Y values?

    Hello,
    given the equation: x= sin(t²)/2 + C I want to draw this in an interval [0,2]


    My try:
    Setting T to be 0,1 and 2; resulted in:
    t = 0; results in: sin(0²)/2 + C = 0 + C

    t = 1; results in: sin(1²)/2 + C = 0.008726 + C
    t = 2; results in: sin(2²)/2 + C = 0.034878 + C



    So, is T the X value and Y is the answer? Or is it vice versa? (Cannot believe I am asking, but better safe than sorry).

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear ManyTimes,

    Is C a constant?? If you take C as an arbitary constant, the independent variable is t (the variable used in X axis) and the dependent variable is x (Y axis.) Hence you will get a family of curves.(I have attached the graph where C=0,-1,1,-2,2)

    Hope this will help you.
