prove that every circle passing through points -1 and +1 have an equation of the form zz'+ikz-ikz'-1=0
where k is real and z' = z conjugate

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Dear Rachneet,

There are two approaches to this problem:

Approach 1: Using co-ordinate geomety

Family of circles using diametric form with points (-1,0) and (1,0) => x2+y2=1as diameter and line passing through these two points =>y=0 will be

x2+y2-1 +py=0 where p is a variable

=> |z|2-1+p(z-z')/2i=0

=> zz'+ikz-ikz'-1=0 where k=-p/2 is real

Approach 2:

Equation of circle: Arg[(z-1)/(z+1)]=θ

=> (z-1)/(z'-1)=[(z+1)/(z'+1)]ei2θ

=> Simplify to get (zz'-1)+(z'-z)[(ei2θ+1)/(ei2θ-1)]=0

=> (zz'-1)+(z'-z)(-icotθ)=0 where (ei2θ+1)/(ei2θ-1)=-icotθ

=> zz'+ikz-ikz'-1=0 where k=cotθ is real


Hope this helps.

If |z|=2 the -1+5z lie on 1)parabola. 2)hyperbola. 3)circle
put z = x+ iy wwe get, x^2 + y^2 = 4...........................(1) The coordinate -1 + 5z becomes, (5x – 1, 5y) put it in eqn. (1) we get, (5x – 1)^2 + (5y)^2 = 4 25x^2 + 1 – 10x + 25y^2 =...
