I have a point a 3D space (say 0,0,0), a radius of the circle(say 2m), and know a single point that lies on the circle at a certain x co-ordinate, and have the corresponding y coordinate for the point on the circle. How can I calculate the Z co-ordinate for this point given the above parameters?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to generate a 3D pipe and have the centre of the pipe at (0,0,0), and know the the x distance along the pipe and the height of the pipe at any given point, but not its depth (which i need to calculate), if this helps explain.
