Equation of a Parabola with Vertex at the Origin

Equation of a Parabola with Vertex at the Origin

A parabola is a conic section formed when a circular cone is cut by a plane. For the parabola to be formed, the plane that intersects the cone must be parallel to one lateral side of the cone. A parabola is defined by the set of all points (x, y) that are located at...

Equation of a Parabola with Vertex Outside the Origin

Parabolas are conic sections that are obtained when a cone is cut by a plane. The plane that intersects the cone must be parallel to one lateral side of the cone. Parabolas are also defined as the set of points (x, y) that are equidistant from a line, called the...

Elements of a Parabola with Diagrams

The parabola is a conic section that is formed when a cone is cut by a plane parallel to one lateral side of the cone. The parabola has the main characteristic that all its points are located at the same distance from a point called the focus and a line called the...
Finding the Diameter Using the Circumference

Finding the Diameter Using the Circumference

The diameter of a circle is the line segment that connects two points on the circle and passes through the center. The diameter is also defined as the chord that passes through the center of the circumference. The length of the diameter can be calculated using both...
Secant of a Circumference

Secant of a Circumference

The secant of a circumference is the line that passes through two points on the circumference. In turn, the circumference is defined as the set of points that are located at the same distance from a fixed point called the center. Here, we will learn about the most...
