Question

A wheel of radius a rolls along a horizontal straight line without slipping. Find parametric equations for the curve traced out by a point P on a spoke of the wheel b units from its center. As parameter, use the angle u through which the wheel turns. The curve is called a trochoid, which is a cycloid when b = a.
