need eqaution of an helix that's spiraling down another helix
the plotting of only ONE helix is pretty easy because the center of the helix is the Y axis.
I cannot figure out how to use (instead of the Y axis) an helix as the center of a second helix.
(Basically I want to plot a second helix that's spiraling down another Helix)
Does someone know the trick ?
I have this equation as the equation of the first helix:
r(t)=( Rcos(w*t), Kt, Rsin(w*t) )
what would be the equation of the second helix ?
