    Identify One More Surface

    This one looks tricky;

    Identify the following parametric surface:

    z = sin(y)

    It looks tricky since its so simple...or at least appears that way to me.

    It is a surface in the form if a sine wave where the wave crests are all
    parallel to the x-axis.

    Think of the surface as a sheet of corrugated iron with the corrugations
    parallel to the x-axis.
