Example 2.5.8



 At $p=\mathrm{π}/4$ on the graph of $C$, the curve defined by , $p\in \left(0,\mathrm{π}/2\right)$, compute N. Graph $C$, along with $\mathbf{N}\left(\mathrm{π}/4\right)$ and $\mathbf{T}\left(\mathrm{π}/4\right)$. Does N point towards the center of curvature? Hint: The curvature of $C$ was obtained in Example 2.4.8.
