Hence PP is

thus the evolute of PQ is B a definite curve , viz . the envelop of ( or line which is

touched by ) the normals drawn at every point of PC or , which is the same thing ...

Hence PP is

**normal**( or perP pendicular to the tangent ) to the curve PQ . Andthus the evolute of PQ is B a definite curve , viz . the envelop of ( or line which is

touched by ) the normals drawn at every point of PC or , which is the same thing ...

On the other hand , let the instantaneous axis of the moving body be the common

On the other hand , let the instantaneous axis of the moving body be the common

**normal**at the point of contact . This is pure spinaing , and does not change thepoint of contact . Let it move , so that the instantaneous axis , still.passing through

In the latter case , the surface on every side of the point bends away from the

same side of its tangent plane , and the curvatures of all

similarly , directed . Thus we may divide curved surfaces into Anticastic and

Synclastic .
