Rates of rotation e. In dealing with this particular congruence we may take the two parameters as the current parameters u, v for the surface. G-eodeslc ellipses and hyperbolas. Find the curvature of a normal section od a helicoid. The Divergence Theorem of Gauss. Prove otherwise that the inclination of conjugate lines is equal or supplementary to that of their Bphenoal image. A ourve of constant torsion ooinoides with its conjugate.
The mutual moment of two given generators and their shortest distance apart are clearly independent of the curve chosen as directrix. Thus the edge of regression of the polar developable is the locus of the centre of spherical curvature. This weatnerburn is the locus of the points on the sphere which represent the rays lying upon that surface. The principal radii, a and ft, have opposite signs, and the surface lies partly on one side and partly on the other side of the tangent plane at P.
We will denote it by J. Similarly from the other family of lines of curvature we have another family of edges of regression which lie on the second sheet of the centro-surface.
Such a section is a plane curve whose principal normal is parallel to the normal to the surface. Consequently u is positive and v negative, the root between — c and — b being the zero root For an hyperboloid of two sheets both 6 and c are negative.
In particular the spherical image of the lines of curvature on a mimmal surface are isometric curves, for the lines of curvature on a minimal surface have been shown to be isometric. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more.
A curve traced on the surface of a cylinder, and cutting the generators at a constant angle, is called a helix. Hence since the directrix may be chosen at pleasure, subject to the condition that it cuts all the generators, we have the following theorem, due to Bonnet: We’ll publish them on our site once we’ve reviewed them.
Hence R — r vanishes identically, and dimfnsions curve itself is the edge of regression Ex. Hence the two sheets of the evolute of a surface, whose principal radii have a constant difference, are pseudo-spherical surfaces. The principal normal mterseots the axis of the cylinder or gonally ; and the tangent and binormal are inclined at constant angles to fixed direction of the generators.
Looking for beautiful books? Its successive O derivatives with respect to s will be denoted by r’, r”, r”‘, and so on. If we give it that from P toward weathherburn concave side of the curve it follows from 2 that k must be regarded as positive, for t’ has also this direction.
Along a geodesic or a line of curvature on a central quadno the product of the semi-diameter of the quadric parallel to the tangent to the curve and the central perpendicular differnetial the tcmgent plane is constant. Expanding this product and remembering that Art.
Alternative form of the condition for isometry e. Then, from the preceding argument, it follows that each of these curves lies on a singly in- finite family of circular cones whose axes are tangents to the other curve. But QQ ‘ is parallel to d’ x d and is therefore perpendicular to d’. This is the differehtial and sufficient condition that the two familie; of curves form a conjugate system.

Hence the necessary and sufficient condition for parallelism of two vectors is that their cross product vanish. Taking the lines of ourvature as parametno ourves, deduce the theorem that a line of ourvature is parallel to its spherical image at the corresponding point, from the formulae for Fi and r a in Art Hence the principal directions at a point of the surface are conjugate directions.
Parallels of latitude are represented by the concentric circles -O” with centre at the ongm. 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. From a given point P on a surface a length PQ is laid off along the normal equal to twice the radius of normal curvature for a given direction through P, and a sphere is described on PQ as diameter. The quantity 17 may be called the linear magnification.
Now the first integral, taken from B to 0is equal to the angle A of the triangle.

The values of u and v are thus negative, and are separated by — b. Hence a system of geodesio ellipses and the corresponding system of geodesio hyperbolas are orthogonal Conversely, whenever cfo a is of the form 33the substitution 32 reduces it to the form 31showing that the parametric curves in 33 are geodesic ellipses and hyperbolas.
We have seen that the normals to a surface are tangents to a family of geodesics tjree each sheet of the centro-surface. Surfaces of the congruence, 95 Limits. Rotation of n Parallel surfaces. This mutual moment is the scalar moment about either generator of a unit vector localised dimemsions the other.
