This should be relitively simple:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = x ... convert to spherical coords:

p*sin(r)*sin(t) = p*sin(r)*cos(t)

which reduces to...

sin(t) = cos(t)

tan(t) = 1 (is this right?)

t =~ 0.78... (Can i get a nice fraction for this?)

Any help is appreciated.
