How do you graph r(t)=(tsint, tcost, tcost)?

    it looks to be a sphere of some sort

    I believe it is some sort of spiral.

    tsint and tcost are the elements of a flat spiral.... that 3rd element is just moving it along another axis i believe

    Actually it traces an expanding spiral that bounces between ever increasing z values. You can see that the radius it's turning at increases as t increases and the distance it travels in z also increases with t.

    would it be a spiralling cone then?

    what if you change the middle term to -tcost?

    It's not a cone because the position on the z axis is oscillating back and forth across the xy plane.
