...radius of curvature ; but the conclusion is verified by the known properties of cycloids and trochoids. A point on the circumference of a circle which rolls on a straight line has a cusp in its path at the point where it comes to the straight line. This cusp is a point of zero... ## Geometrical Exercises in Paper Folding
