Parametric Coordinates


We can express the coordinate of a point of the hyperbola x2/a2 – y2/b2 = 1 in terms of a single parameter, say θ.

In the adjacent figure OM = a sec θ and PM = b tan θ. Thus any point on the curve, in parametric form is x = a secq, y = b tanθ.

In other words, (a sec θ, b tan θ) is a point on the hyperbola for all values of θ. The point (a secθ, b tanθ) is briefly called the point ‘θ’.
