derivation (trick) for the point of intersection of a pair of straight lines with a curve (in 2 degree)

2 years ago


Answers : (3)


S = ax2+by2+2gx+2fy+2hxy+c = 0


Partially differentiate S w.r.t x and y respectively.


2ax + 2g + 2hy = 0

ax+hy+g = 0     ...............(i)


2by + 2f + 2hx = 0

by + hx + f = 0    ..............(ii)


Solve (i) and (ii) for x and y.


(x,y) is the point of intersection.

Any similar method (generic) for intersection of two curves/ a curve and a line?

2 years ago

This method isnt actually to find the intersection of two curves. This is used to find the centre of the curve. Incase of pair of straight lines, it is infact, the point of their intersection. In ellipse and hyperbola, u get the center.

the normal to the curve at P(x,y) meets the x axis at G. If the distance of G from the origin is twice the abscissa of P , then the curve is a) ellipse b) parabola c) ellipse or hyperbola
solution: for any curve the equation of normal at ( X1, Y1) (y- y1) = -1/m (x- X1) {where m = slope of tengent or say dy/dx at (x1, Y1) } normal meets the X axis at G.. so ( 0 - y1) = -1/m...

No of normals can be drawn through a given point to the parabola,ellipse
In general there are three normals to a parabola and four to an ellipse through a given point.
