I have a 3D space with axis $(x, y ,z)$ and I can make a circle in the $xy$-plane.
To make a circle in the xy-plane I currently use spherical coordinates $(r, \theta, \phi)$ where $r = 1$, $\theta = \pi/2$, and $\phi = [0, 2\pi]$ and this is converted to Cartesian coordinates $(x, y, z)$ using the equations:
$x = r\sin\theta$ $\cos\phi$
$y = r\sin\theta$ $\sin\phi$
$z = r\sin\theta$
How do I tile this circle around the
y-axis ? so it can circle on any plane starting from the
xy-plane to the
zy-plane. I hope this all makes sense.
