# Radius of Curvature interactive graph update

By Murray Bourne, 10 Apr 2012

Radius of Curvature is an interesting application of differentiation.

I recently updated the interactive graph on that page.

So go and explore what Radius of Curvature means and how it is applied, here:

(Technical background: I originally created the graph using GeoGebra and imported that .GGB graph into JSXGraph, but this approach does not work in Internet Explorer. Did I ever mention I hate Internet Explorer?

The new version was created from scratch in JSXGraph and it works in all browsers.)

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
