Plane curves in Atlas 2D/3D Wizard
This tutorial illustrates how to use the Atlas 2D/3D Wizard package to solve problems in elementary differential geometry.
What we have?
Plane curve in Polar coordinate system:
What we do?
We calculate curve arc
and curve curvature.
We also obtain the Tangent vector field
and Normal vector field
Run Atlas 2D/3D Wizard and press NEXT button:
Choose 2D- plane and press NEXT button:
Select Polar coordinate system and press NEXT button:
Select CURVE and press NEXT button:
Enter the curve equations and press NEXT button (t is the parameter):
Press Check-Out button or just skip this step and press NEXT button:
Specify a notebook to save the Mathematica
code (Output.nb by default):
Press FINISH button and execute in Mathematica
the generated file:
You will see the results of the execution in the notebook: curve arc, curve curvature, tangent vector field and normal vector field.
It takes 1 minute to solve this problem from the beginning to the end! Just try it.
