**r**(t) =<sin(t), cos(t), t>

Is it possible to eliminate t and write an equation for this helix just in terms of x, y, and z?

How would you express ##z## as a function of ##t##?

r(t) =<sin(t), cos(t), t>

Is it possible to eliminate t and write an equation for this helix just in terms of x, y, and z?

##z=## ?
