[SOLVED]: How to correct for nonstandard curvature?
Posted:
Aug 31, 2010 3:12 PM


For the archive: if the curvature is 'k', then the circumference is:
c(r) = 2 * PI / sqrt(k) * sinh( sqrt(k) * r)
and the area is:
a(r) = 2 * PI / (k) * (cosh(sqrt(k) * r)  1)
Besides, I am still curious what the answer to the second question could be.
Regards, Gabor
