Excerpt 11-6

I don't get how the equation \begin{equation*} \Delta v_\perp=v\,\Delta\theta \end{equation*} is found.

It would be helpful to link, at least to section 11-6 even if you can't link to the equation: http://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/I_11.html#Ch11-S6

##\sin\Delta\theta\simeq\Delta\theta## if ##\Delta\theta<<1##, is the relevant fact, I think. Then the result follows from figure 11-8.
