Revision Notes on Hyperbola

  • The standard equation of hyperbola with reference to its principal axis along the coordinate axis is given by x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1, where b2 = a2 (e2 -1)

  • The foci of the hyperbola are S(ae, 0) and S’ = (-ae, 0)

  • Equations of the directrices are given by x = a/e and x = -a/e

  • The coordinates of vertices are A’ = (-a, 0) and A = (a,0)

  • The length of latus rectum is 2b2/a = 2a(e2 - 1)

  • The length of the transverse axis of the hyperbola is 2a.

  • The difference of the focal distances of any point on the hyperbola is constant and is equal to transverse axis.

  • x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1 and -x2/a2 + y2/b2 = 1 are conjugate hyperbola of each other.

  • If e1 and e2are the eccentricities of the hyperbola and its conjugate then e1-2+ e2-2 = 1

  • The foci of a hyperbola and its conjugate are concyclic and form the vertices of a square.

  • The length of the transverse axis of a hyperbola is 2a and the transverse axis and conjugate axis together constitute the principal axis of the hyperbola.

  • Whether two hyperbolas are similar or not is decided on the basis of their eccentricity. The hyperbolas with same eccentricity are same.Hyperbola

  • The eccentricity of rectangular hyperbola is √2 and the length of its latus rectum is equal to its transverse or conjugate axis. 

  • The equation of the auxiliary circle of the hyperbola is given by x2+ y2 = a2

  • In parametric form, the equations x = a sec θand  y = b tan θ together represent the hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1. Here θ is a parameter.

  • The point P(x1, y1) lies within, on or outside the ellipse according as x12/a2 - y12/b2 = 1 is positive, zero or negative.

  • The line y = mx + c is a secant, a tangent or passes outside the hyperbola  x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1 according as whether c2 is > = or < a2m2 - b2

  • Equations of tangents

  1. Equation of tangent to hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1at the point (x1, y1) is xx1/a2 - yy1/b2 = 1

  2. Equation of tangent to hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1at the point (a sec θ, b tan θ) is (x sec θ)/a - (y tan θ)/b= 1

  3. y = mx ±[(a2m2- b2] can also be taken as the tangent to the hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1

  • Equations of normal

  1. Equation of normal to the hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1 at the point (x1, y1) is a2 x/x1+ b2 y/y1 = a2 - b2 = a2e2

  2. Equation of normal at the point P(a sec θ, b tan θ) on the hyperbola x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 1 is ax/sec θ + by/ tan θ = a2+b2 = a2e2

  • The equation of director circle is x2 + y2 = a2 - b2  

  • The equations of the asymptotes of the hyperbola are x/a + y/b = 0 and x/a - y/b = 0. This can be combined as x2/a2 - y2/b2 = 0

  • The asymptotes of the hyperbola and its conjugate are same

  • The asymptotes pass through the center of the hyperbola and the bisectors of the angles between the asymptotes are the axis of a...
