Dear Vaibhav let a point on ellipse is (acosT ,bsinT)(let this is point where curve intersect each other) so normal at this point on ellipse,and tangent on hyperbola will be same line. normal on ellipse axsecT - by cosecT =a^2 -b^2 ..............1 tangent on parabola at (acosT ,bsinT) axcosT - by sinT =c^2 .....................2 equation 1 and 2 represent the same equation so asecT /acosT = bcosecT /b sinT = (a^2 -b^2) /c^2 so asecT /acosT = bcosecT /b sinT cos^2T = sin^2T or tanT =1 or T =45 and bcosecT /b sinT = (a^2 -b^2) /c^2 a2 -b2=2c^2 Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.

Dear Vaibhav l

et a point on ellipse is (acosΘ ,bsinΘ)(let this is point where curve intersect each other)

so normal at this point on ellipse,and tangent on hyperbola will be same line.

normal on ellipse axsecΘ - by cosecΘ =a^2 -b^2 ..............1

tangent on parabola at (acosΘ ,bsinΘ) is  axcosΘ - by sinΘ =c^2 .....................2

equation 1 and 2 represent the same equation

so asecΘ /acosΘ= bcosecΘ /b sinΘ = (a^2 -b^2) /c^2

so asecΘ /acosΘ= bcosecΘ /b sinΘ

cos^2Θ= sin^2Θ

or tanΘ =1

or Θ =45

and bcosecΘ /b sinΘ = (a^2 -b^2) /c^2

a2 -b2=2c^2
