equation for a helix

Helix – Wikipedia Helix — from Wolfram MathWorld for , where is the radius of the helix and is a constant giving the vertical separation of the helix’s loops. which is a constant. In fact, Lancret’s theorem states that a necessary and sufficient condition for a curve to be a helix is that the ratio […]

 

equation of a helix

Helix – Wikipedia Helix — from Wolfram MathWorld Helix. A helix, sometimes also called a coil, is a curve for which the tangent makes a constant angle with a fixed line. Helix – Wikipedia A circular helix, (i.e. one with constant radius) has constant band curvature and constant torsion. A curve is called a general […]
