Let A is (at1square ,2at1) and B is (at2square ,2at2) .Ordinate of midpoint of these points will satisfy  y=Ka .so we get t1+t2=K. Let point of locus is (alpha,beta). Now we know in parabola point of intersection of tangents can be written as (at1t2, at1+at2).  So beta=at1+at2 .put value of t1+t2=k.so we get beta=Ka .now replace beta with y .so required locus is y=Ka.
