11.4CURVATURE Unit Tangent Vector Slide 3 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Permission required for reproduction or display. For the smooth curve C traced out by the endpoint of the vector-valued function r(t), recall that for each t, v(t) = r'(t) can be thought of as both the velocity vector and a tangent vector, pointing in the direction of motion (i.e., the orientation of C). Notice that is also a tangent vector, but has length one. We call T(t) the unit tangent vector to the curve C. That is, for each t, T(t) is a tangent vector of length one pointing in the direction of the orientation of C.

EXAMPLE Solution 11.4CURVATURE 4.6Finding the Curvature of a Parabola Slide 21 © The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Permission required for reproduction or display. In other words, as x → ∞, the parabola straightens out, which you’ve likely observed in the graphs of parabolas. It is a straightforward exercise to show that the maximum curvature occurs at the vertex of the parabola (x = −b/2a).
