A cylindrical helix is a curve generated by a point moving uniformly around a cylinder and uniformly lengthwise of the cylinder at the some time. The hypotenuse of a right triangle will form one turn of a helix if it is wrapped around a cylinder. The base of the triangle is equal to the circumference of the cylinder and the altitude is the pitch of the helix.
