4.4 Conics Recognize the equations and graph the four basic conics: parabolas, circles, ellipse, and hyperbolas. Write the equation and find the focus of a parabola. Write the equation of a ellipse and find the foci, vertices, the length of the major and minor axis.

2
Parabolas Definition: A parabola is the set of all points (x, y) in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed line, called the directrix, and a fixed point, the focus, not on the line. Directrix

3
**Parabolas Standard equation of the Parabola x2 = 4py p 0**

Vertex (0, 0) Directrix y = -p Focus (0, p) Line of sym x = 0 y2 = 4px p 0 Vertex (0,0) Directrix x = -p Focus (p, 0) Line of sym y = 0

4
**Parabola Examples Given Find the focus.**

Since the squared variable is x, the parabola is oriented in the y directions. The leading coefficient is negative, so, the parabola opens down. Focus (0, p) Solve for x2 -p Solve for p. • p Focus

5
Parabola Examples Write the standard form of the equation of the parabola with the vertex at the origin and the focus (2, 0). Note that the focus is along the x axis, so the parabola is oriented in the x axis direction, y2 = 4px. Focus (2, 0) (p, 0) p = 2 y2 = 4px = 4(2)x y2 = 8x

7
Ellipse Definition: An ellipse is the set of all points (x, y ) in a plane the sum of whose distances from two distinct fixed points (foci) is constant. Major Axis • Focus (x, y) d1 d2 d1 + d2 = constant • Center Vertex Vertex Minor Axis

8
Ellipse The standard form of the equation of an ellipse (Center at origin) Major axis along the x axis Major axis along the y axis where 0 < b < a c2 = a2 – b2 Major axis length = 2a Minor axis length = 2b

9
Ellipse Examples Given 4x2 + y2 = Find the vertices, the end points of the minor axis, the foci and center. Change the equation to the standard form. Major axis along the y-axis b2 a2 Center (0, 0) Vertices (0, 6) End points of minor axis (3, 0) (0, a) (b, 0) To find the foci use c2 = a2 – b2 c2 = 36 – 9 c2 = 27 (0, c)

Hyperbolas Definition: a hyperbola is the set of all points (x, y) the difference of whose distances from two distinct points (foci) is constant. d1 Focus (x, y) • • Vertex • Branch d2 Transversal Axis • Center Vertex • Branch Focus d1 - d2 = constant
