Example 2.5.4



 At $x=1$ on the graph of $C$, the catenary defined by $y=\mathrm{cosh}\left(x\right)$, compute N. Graph $C$, along with $\mathbf{N}\left(1\right)$ and $\mathbf{T}\left(1\right)$. Does N point towards the center of curvature? Hint: The curvature of $C$ was obtained in Example 2.4.5.
