Chapter 2: Space Curves



Section 2.4: Curvature



Example 2.4.3



 Use the appropriate formula from Table 2.4.1 to determine the curvature of $y\left(x\right)={x}^{3/2},x\ge 0$, then obtain the curvature from first principles, that is, by calculating the rate at which the tangent turns as arc length increases.
