Homework 6, due Wednesday, March 31

Write a Java applet that implements a simple ray tracer to a flying saucer shape. In this homework you should take the routine you wrote for ray tracing to a flying saucer. If you recall, a flying saucer was formed by the intersection of two spheres. Apply the routine you wrote, pixel by pixel, to render an image of a flying saucer.

You will not yet need to create shading for the flying saucer. You will be doing that in a later assignment. Instead, for this assignment, you should assign a color to each pixel of:

You can paint a single pixel a color (eg: gray) by doing (for example):

             g.drawRect(x, y, 1, 1);

Here are some suggestions for how you might implement this:
