Objective Statement:
Part 1 and 2:
Apply knowledge from labs to compute circular curve information with a given PI
station and angle measures.
Part 3:
Find the coordinates of a point P and the relationship of points A, B, and P to the
circular curve in Part 1.
Introduction:
Part 1 and 2:
In part 1, I was given the PI station and several angle measures of a
circular curve and asked to compute the coordinates of the PC and PT stations.
I also had to find
the distance of the Tangent, Radius, and the arc distance from PC to several stations along the
curve.
In part 2, I was asked to sketch the curve and provide information pertinent to the circular
curve.
Part 3:
In part 3, I was given coordinates of appoints A and B and asked to find the
coordinates of point P using given lengths AP and BP as well as the angle APB.
I had to use
several steps of coordinate geometry that we used in a previous lab.
The prior knowledge from
that lab and lectures was used very often.
The second part of part 3 used the distance formula,
which I have been using since elementary school.
