Homework Help: calculus

Posted by mark on Saturday, September 20, 2008 at 8:47pm.

the path of a particle in the xy-plane is vector r = (cos2t, sint) for t for all [-pi/2, pi] where t represents time. Sketch the path. Is it a smooth curve?

How do i sketch the path? do i just plug in random points between [-pi/2, pi]? how would i connect it together? and how do i know if it's a smooth curve? Thank you.
