Example 2.3.8

If Rp is the position-vector form of the curve C defined parametrically by the equations xp=2+3p p2,yp=cosp, p0,π,


Obtain Rp,ρp and Tp, where ρ=R and T=R/ρ.


Graph C and the vectors T0,T1,T2.


On the given interval, graph ρ and determine its absolute minimum and the point on the curve where this minimum occurs.
