I am trying to simulate a static load on a bicycle rim, image bellow, by aplying the load directly on the rim with nonuniform distribution with cylindrical coordinates as to obey the equation P=F*sin(theta). I've seen that in cylindrical coordinate the y variable becomes theta, but cant understand how to use sine function on the equations.Untitled.jpg

 

thanks for the help
