Is that e

Do you know the formula for curvature? If so, find the curvature of each, then optimize it! If not, then that is what you should look up first

By the way, like I have mentioned a few times here:

[tex]\kappa=\frac{|\mathbf{r}'\times\mathbf{r}''|}{|\mathbf{r}'|^3}[/tex]

You can use r = (x)i + (e
