Question: y-c/p=xp^2-cp^3 Hi Nicholas, The slope of the normal to a curve at a point P is -1 divided by the slope of the tangent to the curve at P, and the slope of the tangent to the curve at P is given by the derivative dy/dx at P. Your curve is given in terms of a parameter t and thus you can calculate dy/dx by:
