Dear jauneet

let end point of the chord is (at12 ,2at1) and (at22 ,2at2)

since it is normal to parabola  so t2 = -t1  - 2/t1

equation of normal of parabola    y  =-tx + 2at + at3

  slope is  -t1   which is given acute  so -t1 >0

or  t1 <0

now chord make right angel at origin   so    {(2at1 -0)/ (at12 -0)}{(2at1 -0)/ (at12 -0)} =-1

t1t2 =-4

  t1(-t1  - 2/t1) =-4

 t1 =-√2

so    angel is  =tan-1(√2)
