 Download .gx File Expression Count: 1 To create a triangle with constant perimeter k, we set one leg equal to a, and then solve for the other side length. The envelop is a circle.
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 1 It is important in this example to constrain the distance of the line from the points directly, rather than creating perpendiculars and constraining t...
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 1 Salmon states that the radius of curvature of any conic is equal to the cube of the normal divided by the semi-parameter. We create this quantity in ...
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 3 We generate the evolute, as the envelope of the normals. Point at parametric location t on the evolute is the center of curvature of the point at par...
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 1 If we drop a perpendicular from the normal to the focal radius, then drop a perpendicular back onto the normal this is the center of curvature.
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 2 We dilate an ellipse by factor k about its center. We observe that the segments of a chord of the outer ellipse cut off by the inner ellipse are equa...
 Download .gx File Expression Count: 2 If we examine the two tangents to an inner conic which pass through a point on the outer conic, we see that each makes the same angle with the outer c...
