Definition– Radius of curvature is the radius of the circular arc which best approximates the curve at that point or you can say the best fit circle for the curve at a given point.
Mathematically, its function is defined as
In physics we know that
where is the component of force perpendicular to the velocity at a given point.
where is the unit vector along
We can write
where m is the mass of the particle.
