I was absent to a calculus III lecture last monday. I didn't miss much, and have gone over what I did. I understand the work and know how to do the problems, the only thing I'm having trouble with is actually picturing what an osculating plane is. I just need a simple explanation of what it does, or what exactly it means. I googled the definition but still didn't really understand it... Thanks in advance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
