# Thread: Identify One More Surface

1. ## 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.
