# (a) Is the curvature of the curve C shown in the figure greater at P or at Q? Explain.(b) Estimate the curvature at P and at Q by sketching the osculating circles at those points. (a)

To determine

To explain: Whether the curvature of curve C is greater at P or Q.

Explanation

The curvature of curve at point is measured in terms of how fast the curve is changing its direction at that particular point. The curve at point P is quickly changing its direction, ...
