And conversely this relation holds if the directions are conjugate. And, since d is the unit normal to the sphere, we have 3. Then the position of any point P on the surface is determined by the geodesic through 0 on which it lies, and its distance u from 0 along that geodesic. Families of surfaces; 7. Thus along the curve T on 8 the radius of curvature a is constant. This determines the central point of the generator. The circle of curvature at P is the circle passing through three points on the curve ultimately coincident at P.

But P is any point on the surface Hence all the geodesics joining two opposite urnbilics are of equal length. They are real and different when M 1 — LN is positive, that is to say when the specific curvature is negative They are imaginary when K is positive. Find the osoulating developable of the circular helix. Cambridge University Press Amazon. A curve traced on the surface of a cylinder, and cutting the generators at a constant angle, is called a helix.

The unit vector in this direction is – d’ x d, because d’ and d are at a right angles, and their moduli are a and unity respectively. Their torsion TF 0 therefore vanishes identically. It is easy to show that the Vines of curvature on dinensions surface are orthogonal in their spherical representor tion.


The Divergence Theorem of Gauss. Line of stnotion Central point If the tangent to a geodesic is inclined at a constant angle to a fixed direction, the normal to the surface along the geodesio is everywhere perpen- dicular to the fixed direction.

A ourve of constant torsion ooinoides with its conjugate. Consider a normal section of the surface at a given point, that is to say, the section by a plane containing the normal gsometry that point. Prove the ny 19 of Art. This quantity, however, does not play such an important part in the theory of curves as the curvature and torsion. Line of striction Parallels.

Serret-Frenet formulae 13 4 Loous of centre of ourvature. The first of these is equivalent to d!

We may take d as a unit vector giving the direction of the line or ray, and t is then the distance from the director surface to the current point R on the ray. It is of course the rate of rotation of the osculating plane.

If dS is the area of an elemei the surface at a pomt where the specific curvature is K, we KdS the second curvature of the element, and J j KdS taken any portion of the surface is the whole second curvature of portion. The negative of the vector b is a vector with the same modulus but the opposite direction.

Normals Curvilinear coordinates Fundamental magnitudes It follows that the principal normal to the geodesic coincides with the normal to the surface ; and we agree to take it also m the ny sense. Modulus of extension Change of inclination e. Families of curves continued ; 4. Thus the section of the surface by the plane dimenslons to the tan- gent plane at P, and indefinitely close to it, is similar and similarly situated to the ellipse.


Hence an asym- ptotic line on a surface is perpendicular to its spherical image at the corresponding point. Ruled surfaces in differentual, however, do not possess these properties.

This follows also from Further, wearherburn can prove theorems for spherical lines of curvaturesimilar to those proved above for plane lines of curvature.

In general it consists of two sheets, corresponding geomeyry the two families of lines of curvature. Along a line of ourvature of a oomcoid, one principal radius varies as the oube of the other.

Its direction is that of the tangent to the curve at the pomt considered Fig 1, Art. Involutes of weathsrburn surfaco Inverse Surfaces 82 Inverse surface. Principal direotions and ourvatures 30 First and second curvatures Both lie on the normal to the surface, for they are the centres of curvature of normal sections tangential to the lines of curvature. On any one surface the value of a is constant ; it changes, however, from one surface to another. Lines of constant curvature.

For, the directions of the two dimensikns through a point u t v are giver by 0! In the case of a right-handed surface this vector makes an acute angle with t. The curvature of a geodesic is the normal curvature in its direc- tion. Find the envelope of the plane x. The two dimesions surfaces of the congruence which pass through the given ray, and are determined by 6are called the ‘principal surfaces for that ray.
