A2-17: CLOSED CURVES AND CAPPING SURFACES

Additional Info

  • ID Code: A2-17
  • Purpose: Illustrate various complicated closed curves
  • Description:

    Distorted pasta strainers illustrate possible choices for closed surfaces.

    These three-dimensional models can be used. if so desired, to illustrate some variety in choice of closed surfaces when referring to Gauss' Law or Stokes' Theorem.

    Invite students to handle them and experiment with different distortions of the form; show that the surface area remains (approximately) invariant.
