Use the "double-angle formula" for cosine -- there are three forms of it, but one of the expressions for y = cos(2t) will have a simple connection to x = sin t in the vector equation for r .

(The double-angle formulas for sine and cosine from trigonometry are ones that it are useful to know. They see a lot of application...)
