A circle of radius r has a curvature of size 1/r.Therefore, small circles have large curvatureand large circles have small curvature. Thecurvature of a line is 0. In general, an objectwith zero curvature is "flat."

Let C:π = π(π ) be a space curve and P be a point on it,then curvature at π is defined as rate of rotation oftangent (change in the direction of tangent) at π. Itsmagnitude is denoted by π (kappa) and defined by πΏπ ππ π = πππ πΏπ = ππ πΏπ β0Where πΏπ is the angle between tangents at points π andπ on the curve along arc length πΏπ . tangent πΏπ tangent C:π = π(π )

Curvature measures the rate at which a space curve π(t) changes direction.The direction of curve is given by the unit tangent vector π(π) π(π) = π(π)which has length 1 and is tangent to π(t).The picture below shows the unit tangent vector π to the curve π(t) =(2cos(t), sin(t), 0)at several points.Obviously, if π(t) is a straight line, the curvature is 0. Otherwise the curvature is non-zero.To be precise, curvature is defined to be themagnitude of the rate of change of the unittangent vector with respect to arc length: π π π π π= π π π π

Note 1. Straight line has zero curvature 2. A circle has constant curvature 3. A circular helix has constant curvature 4. The curvature of small circle is large and vice versa 1 5. The radius of curvature is denoted by π, i.e π = π
