This is also the path of an object connected to a string that wraps or unwraps around a circular post. The string would be the black line in the wiki animation. The string is always perpendicular to the instantaneous path of the object, and always tangent to the circular post.

x = r(cos t + t sin t)

y = r(sin t - t cos t)

I start with t = 0 rad and r = 1, then

x = 1(cos 0 + 0 sin 0)

= 1(cos 0)

=1(1)

= 1

y = 1(sin 0 - 0 cos 0)

= 1(sin 0)

= 0

Is it correct?
