Calculations with hypocycloids. A hypocycloid is the curve that is generated by a point of a small
circle, which is rolling inside a large circle. The ratio of the radiuses of the two circles must be an integer. This ratio determines the number of cusps. The astroid is a hypocycloid with four cusps. Enter at radiuses and number of cusps two values and choose the number of decimal places. Then click Calculate. n must be an integer >2.
Generation of a hypocycloid.
n = a / b
l = 2 * a * sin (π/n)
p = 8 * a * ( n - 1 ) / n
A = π * a² * ( n - 1 ) * ( n - 2 ) / n²
π = 3.141592653589793...
Radius, length and perimeter have the same unit (e.g. meter), the area has this unit squared (e.g. square meter).
