Equation of tangent is 


 


ax+by-r^2 = 0


In x-y intercept form


 


x/(r^2/a) + y/(r^2/b) = 1


 


x-intercept = r^2/b


y-intercept = r^2/b


 


Area of triangle = 1/2*r^2/b*r^2/b = r4/(2ab)

integration of- 1/(1-x 2 (1-x 2 ) 1/2 )dx = ?
 
 
assume x = sin , dx = cos d so 1 – x^2 = cos^2 so integration becomes sec^2 d = tan = tan (sin-1 x)
