Plane Curves: Epitrochoid


An Epitrochoid is a plane curve generated by the motion of a fixed point on the radius or extension of the radius of a circle that rolls externally, without slipping, on a fixed circle. The epitrochoid is a generalization of the epicycloid. The Epitrochoid is a special case of the Limacon of Pascal with R = r.
