Casio fx-9750GIII: Trigonometric Integral Graphs, including The Euler Spiral

 Casio fx-9750GIII:  Trigonometric Integral Graphs, including The Euler Spiral


The program ESGRAPH plots the parametric equations containing integrals:

x(t) = ∫(cos f(x) dx, x = 0 to t)

y(t) = ∫(sin f(x) dx, x = 0 to t)

The program uses f(x) = a*x^p

When p = 2, the curve is a Euler Spiral (see source).

*  There are four spaces between PROGRESS: and %.  This progress meter is to inform the user of the program's completion. 

*  The characters % and ', percent sign and apostrophe respectively, are found on the program editing default menu (TOP, BTM, SRC, MENU, A ←→a, CHAR), by pressing [F6] (CHAR), [F2] (SYBL)

*  Everything that follows an apostrophe is a comment and can be left out.

*  The range of -2π to 2π is used. 

*  The lower the precision, the faster the graph is made but accuracy of the graph is sacrificed.  In a lot of cases, patience is required. 

*  P is a positive integer.  


Example 1:  Euler Spiral:  A = 1/2, P = 2, precision 32

Example 2:  A = 1, P  = 3, precision 32

Example 3:  A = 2, P = 1, precision 16
