Archimedean Spiral


Welcome to the Draw an Archimedean Spiral! This tool allows you to generate an Archimedean spiral based on the specified number of loops and points per loop.

Steps to Use the Tool:

  1. Number of Loops: Enter the desired number of loops for the spiral.
  2. Number of Points per Loop: Specify the number of points to be plotted per loop.
  3. Draw Spiral: Click the "Draw Spiral" button to generate the Archimedean spiral based on your inputs.


  • Dynamic Generation: The tool dynamically generates the Archimedean spiral based on the user-defined parameters.
  • Real-time Visualization: As you adjust the input values, the spiral updates in real-time, providing instant feedback.
  • Customizable: Users can customize the number of loops and points per loop to create various spiral designs.


  • Visual Representation: Offers a visual representation of the Archimedean spiral, aiding in understanding its geometric properties.
  • Educational Tool: Ideal for students learning about geometric curves and their mathematical representations.
  • Exploration: Allows users to explore different configurations of the Archimedean spiral and observe how changing parameters affects its shape.


  • Q: What is an Archimedean Spiral?
    • A: An Archimedean spiral is a type of spiral with a constant distance between successive turns, often described by the polar equation 𝑟=𝑎+𝑏𝜃
  • Q: Can I adjust the scale or appearance of the spiral?
    • A: Currently, the scale and appearance of the spiral are determined by the canvas dimensions and the input parameters. You can experiment with different values to achieve the desired result.
