I was wondering how you could paramatize a non-linear curve between two points (1,0) and (a,b)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have been trying to do like a parabolic paramatization but I am getting nowhere

I can get the first point alright

x=x

y=1-x^2

1<x<a

but then you get y=1-x^2

Any suggestions
