## glissetteIf there are two fixed curves, and a curve S of fixed shape and length
that slide with its ends on the fixed curves, then the locus
of a point moving with S is called a glissette. An example is the
locus of the midpoint of a line segment sliding with its ends on two perpendicular
lines; this locus is a circle. ## Related category• PLANE CURVES | |||||
