Let the tangent from the origin to the curve y = sin x meet the curve again at (x1, y1) Equation of tangent at (x1, y1) is y – y1 = cos(x1)(x – x1) since it passes through the origin, so y1 = x1cos(x1) ...(i) Also, the point (x1, y1) lies on the curve, so y1 = sin (x1) ...(ii) From (i) and (ii), we get, sin(x1) = x1cos(x1) ⇒ x1 = tan(x1) ⇒ x12 = tan2(x1) ⇒ x12 = sec2(x1) – 1 ⇒ x12 = (x12/y12) – 1 ⇒ x12 y12 = x12 – y12 Hence, the locus of (x1, y1) is x2 y2 = x2 – y2

Dear student 
let the point of contact is (h,k), so line passing through origin is k = mh  ...  (1)  having slope m point also lie on the curve so k = sinh
slope of tangent of curve y = sin x  is   dy / dx =  cos x , which is equal to m  so m = cos h ...(2)  we have m = k/h from (1)      putting in 2 we get  k/h = cos h
and we know sin^2h + cos^2 h =1
so locus is k^2 + (k/h)^2 = 1
=> h^2k^2 = h^2 - k^2
which is  x^2y^2 = x^2 - y^2
