Homework Help: Parametric Problem

  1. Feb 26, 2006 #1
    Circle A is fixed at center (1,0) with a radius 1. Circle B, also with radius 1, rotates at one revolution per (2*PI) seconds. Circle B is always connected to circle A at a single point. If at t=0, circle B is centered at (3,0) and point P (point p is on the edge of circle B) is at (4,0), what is the equation for P's path? (It should be a heart).
    X=_________
    Y=_________
