Curve is Involute of Evolute
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Let $E$ be the evolute $C$.
Then the involute of $E$ is $C$.
- the length of arc of the evolute $E$ of $C$ between any two points $Q_1$ and $Q_2$ of $C$ is equal to the difference between the radii of curvature at the corresponding points $P_1$ and $P_2$ of $C$.
Thus $C$ exhibits precisely the property of the involute of $E$.
