A plane curve with non-vanishing curvature has zero torsion at all points. Conversely, if the torsion of a regular curve with non-vanishing curvature is identically zero, then this curve belongs to a fixed plane. The curvature and the torsion of a helix are constant Show activity on this post. Again I have a question, it's about a proof, if the torsion of a curve is zero, we have that. B ( s) = v 0, a constant vector (where B is the binormal), the proof ends concluding that the curve. α ( t) is such that. α ( t) ⋅ v 0 = k. and then the book says, then the curve is contained in a plane orthogonal to v 0

The argument went as follows: -Torsion = 0 => B=v, which is a constant - (α⋅v)'= (T⋅v)'= 0 => α⋅v= a, which is a constant (where α is a function describing the path and T is the tangent vector) -If α⋅v = constant, then the curve is planar Now, Torsion measures the failure of a curve to be planar. If $\gamma$ has zero torsion, it lies in a plane. Hence for $\kappa=0 \implies \tau = 0$ corresponding to a line. Lines look very much like lines, and they are certainly planar If the curvature κ of C at a certain point is not zero then the principal normal vector and the binormal vector at that point are the unit vectors n = t ′ κ, b = t × n, where the prime denotes the derivative of the vector with respect to the parameter s. The torsion τ measures the speed of rotation of the binormal vector at the given point The curvature at a point of a differentiable curve is the curvature of its osculating circle, that is the circle that best approximates the curve near this point. The curvature of a straight line is zero. The curvature of a curve at a point is normally a scalar quantity, that is, it is expressed by a single real number Torsion is positive when the rotation of the osculating plane is in the direction of a right-handed screw moving in the direction of as increases. If the torsion is zero at all points, the curve is planar. The binormal vector of a 3-D implicit curve can be obtained from (2.38) as follows: (2.49

At the peaks of the torsion function the rotation of the Frenet-Serret frame (T, N, B) around the tangent vector is clearly visible. The kinematic significance of the curvature is best illustrated with plane curves (having constant torsion equal to zero). See the page on curvature of plane curves. Frenet-Serret formulas in calculu A plane curve with non-vanishing curvature has zero torsion at all points. Conversely, if the torsion of a regular curve with non-vanishing curvature is identically zero, then this curve belongs to a fixed plane. The curvature and the torsion of a helix are constant * b) If the torsion is identically zero, the the curve lies in a plane*. c)If the torsion is identically zero and the curvature is a nonzero constant, then show that the curve is a circl Thus, from (6), the geometric torsion for a plane curve is zero. Consequently, (8) reveals that the total torsion is also zero. With some further calculations, we find that the Darboux vector for the plane curve is (21

Differentiable curves with zero torsion lie in planes That a sufficiently differentiable curve with zero torsion lies in a plane is a special case of the fact that a particle whose velocity remains perpendicular to a fixed vector C moves in a plane perpendicular to C. This, in turn, can be viewed as the following result. Suppose is twice differentiable for all t in an interval [a, b], that r. As we discussed in Sect. 2.3torsion describes the deviation of a space curve away from its osculating plane spanned by the curve's tangent and normal vectors. For planar curves, the torsion is always zero. For an arbitrary speed parametri

- The second generalized curvature χ2(t) is called torsion and measures the deviance of γ from being a plane curve. In other words, if the torsion is zero, the curve lies completely in the same osculating plane (there is only one osculating plane for every point t). It is defined as and is called the torsion of γ at point t

Plane curves. If the curve r = r (t) is a plane curve (not a straight line), the plane of the curve is the osculating plane at every point. Theorem 1. A necessary and sufficient condition that a curve (not a straight line), be a plane curve is that its torsion be identically zero. Theorem 2 Then the intersection of the part of the tangent-developable generated by tangent lines at points close to P with the normal plane at P (i.e. the plane through P containing n and b) is given parametrically by power series. where K, T are the curvature and torsion, respectively, of the curve at P and s is arc-length measured from P ((2) p. 68) Example2. Every plane curve γ(s) = (x(s),y(s)) has zero torsion. This is because both T and N remains in the xy-plane, so B = (0,0,1) and B˙(s) = 0. By comparing this with (1) we obtain that τ = 0. We shall presently show that τ does measure the torsion, or twisting, of the curve γ ** Besides, if a surface is such that the total torsion vanishes for all closed curves, it is part of a sphere or a plane**. Here we extend these results to closed curves in three dimensional.

Show that is a path lies within a plane then the torsion is zero. B is constant and is a normal vector to the plane in which c lies Since the circle is contained in a unique plane (never twisting to try to escape to the plane), mathematicians say that it has no torsion or has zero torsion.Although the straight line is also a plane curve, it has no defined torsion - due to its property of being contained in a multitude of planes * Vanishing torsion of parametric curves Vanishing torsion of parametric curves Juhász, Imre 2007-04-01 00:00:00 We consider the class of parametric curves that can be represented by combination of control points and basis functions*.

curves is an integer and for simple, closed, plane curves is ±1. We show that a curve is convex if and only if the curvature does not change sign, and we prove the Isoperimetric Inequality, which gives a bound on the area of a closed curve with fixed length. Finally, we study the deformation of plane curves developed by M. Gage and R. S. Hamilton along a curve and parallel fields of coplanes on M axe defined in a similar way. On account of Lemma 1.3, the planes of a parallel field D on M must be of the same dimension everywhere on M. Thus, if we wish to indicate the dimension of the planes, we can say that D is a parallel field of r-planes Curves of Constant Curvature and Torsion : We must rule out the case of constant zero curvature, which trivially implies that the curve is straight (in which case the torsion is undefined).
