Answers : (1)


T = S1

y-0.5(x+2) = 1^2 - 2 = -1


2y - x - 2 = -2

or, x = 2y


Put in the equation,


y^2 = 2y

or, y = 0 , 2

x = 0, 4

Points where the line cuts the parabola = (0,0), (4,2)


Length = sqrt(4^2 + 2^2) = sqrt(16+4) = sqrt(20) = 2*sqrt(5)

If the tangents and the normals at the extremities of a focal chord intersect at (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) respectively then: a) x1=x2 b) x1=y2 c) y1=y2 d) x2=y1 Also explain your answer...
Ans: if the parabola is Y 2 = 4ax take the focal chord which is easy for calculation e.x. LR (latus rectum) then coordinates of extremities would be (a,2a) and (a,-2a) equation of tangent of...

find the length of the curve y=(1/3)(x^2+2)^3/2 ?
Length : root ( dy^2 + dx^2) and then its integral.. dL = dx * root (dy/dx^2 + 1) dL = dx * root ( x^4 + 2x^2 + 1) dL = dx * (x^2 + 1) Integrate it and now put the limits. This is the answer...
