Title: 
Rolling a coin around a coin
Author(s): 
Lichtblau, Daniel
Language: 
eng
Description: 
  • Curves, Plane Geometry
  • The red circle rolls on the outside of the black circle of radius 1. (The blue point shows how it rolls.) An invisible point at distance q from the center of the black circle is attached to the red circle, tracing out a path as the red circle rolls; such curves are called epitrochoids. When the circles have the same radius, you can see that the blue point is oriented in the same direction after half a revolution. Therefore a coin rolling completely around another coin of the same size goes through two complete revolutions
