Dear Rishi,

Let the curve be y = f(x). Subnormal at any point = |y*dy/dx|

                                 y*dy/dx = ±8  ;which indicates y dy = ±8dx ;which indicates  = ±8x + c

                                 which indicates: y2 = 16 x+2c1

                                                        : c1= -8    or  y2 = -16x +2c2,  

                                                         :c2= 24

                              Hence :        y2 = 16x – 8; y2 = -16x + 24  ;

would be the desired equations.

length of subnormal =y(dy/dx)

=8 ......(given)

y(dy/dx)=8

y dy = 8 dx

integrating on both sides

y^2 =16x +c (c is integrating constant)

satisfying by (2,4)

we get y^2 = 16(x-1)

this is the equation of required curve.
