Record Type: concept
curves (geometric figures) (geometric figures, geometric concepts, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Lines having a locus that may be conceived to be traced by a moving point, the direction of motion continuously changing or deviating from a straight line. A closed curve is a path that repeats itself, and thus encloses one or more regions; simple examples include circles, ellipses, and polygons. Open curves such as parabolas, hyperbolas, and spirals have infinite length.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Lijnen met een locus die kunnen worden gevormd door een bewegende punt, waarbij de richting van de beweging continu verandert of afwijkt van een rechte lijn. Een gesloten kromme is een pad dat zichzelf herhaalt en daardoor een of meer gebieden omsluit; eenvoudige voorbeelden zijn cirkels, ellipsen en polygonen. Open krommen zoals parabolen, hyperbolen en spiralen hebben een oneindige lengte.
