O(0,0) lies on the circle.

general form of any point on this circle is given by (-g+r(cosØ),-f+r(sinØ)) hence here it is P(1+1(cosØ),1(sinØ)).

thus for mid pt. of chord OP:

x= (0+1+1cosØ)/2 =>(1+cosØ)/2    (1)

y=sinØ/2;     (2)

from (1) and (2), (cosØ)^2= (2x-1)^2,   (3)

                          (sinØ)^2=(2y)^2;     (4)

adding (3) and (4)


 or x^2 +y^2-x=0 ,which is the required eq.

From a point (sin k,cos k),three normal can be drawn to the parabola y^2=4ax(a>0) then then value of a lies in the interval: 1)(2,5/2) 2)(0,1/2) 3)(2,3) 4)(1/2,3/2)
Hi, The equation of the normal to the parabola y 2 = 4ax is y = mx – 2am – am 3 , where m is the slope of the tangent line corresponding to the normal. If the normal passes...

Find the value of a for which the limit of function exists at x = 0. f(x) = (1-cos4x)/x 2 , x f(x) = a, x = 0 f(x) = (x) 1/2 /((16 + x 1/2 ) 1/2 – 4), x > 0
Ans: Since the limit of function exist at zero. So at x = 0 LHL = f(0) = RHL Apply L’Hospital rule
