The Hypocycloid

In geometry a hypocycloid is a special plane generated by the trace of a fixed point on a small circle that rolls within a larger circle. It is comparable to the cycloid but instead of the circle rolling along a line, it rolls within a circle. To animate the circle, click the Play button located at the bottom-left of the applet.

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

Creating a hypocycloid is included in the GeoGbra Intermediate Tutorial Series . It will be the next GeoGebra tutorial post
