higher degree functions

Let's now make a function that accelerates as it progresses. This is called a quadratic function, and that's because the independent variable has a power of 2.

//----------------------------
float move(float x) {
  return (0.1 * pow(x, 2) + 10);
}

We can push this further and use a cubic function, which will accelerate even faster.
