1 Conic Sections (Conics) Conic sections are the curves formed when a plane intersects the surface of a right cylindrical doule cone. An example of a doule cone is the 3-dimensional graph of the equation z = x + y (or equivalently the two graphs z = ± x + y.) Planes in 3-dimensions are graphs of equations of the form ax + y + cz + d = 0. An example of a plane in 3-dimensions is z =. This plane is parallel to the xy-plane. Let's find the intersection of the doule cone z = x + y and the plane z =. Sustituting z = into z = x + y, we get x + y = 4 which we recognize as a circle of radius whose center is the point in space, (0,0,). In general, the intersections of doule cones with planes in space are equations of the form Ax + Bxy + Cy + Dx + Ey + F = 0; this is called the general quadratic form. Next, to the general linear form, Ax + By + C = 0, this is one of the simplest forms of an equation. The graphs of these equations represent the conic sections (circles, paraolas, ellipses, and hyperolas), except for some degenerate cases. Find the equations of the conic sections resulting from the intersection of a doule cone, z = x + y, with the following cutting planes: a. z = 3x +.. z = 1 x + 3. ( ) = 9x +1x + 4 or 8x " y +1x + 4 = 0; () Solution: (a) x + y = 3x + x + y = 1 " \$ # x + 3 % ' = 1 & 4 x + 3x + 9 or 3x + 4 y "1x " 36 = 0. Conic sections in nature Conic sections are important ecause they model important physical processes in nature. It can e shown that any ody under the influence of an inverse square law force must have a trajectory of one of the conic sections. Heavenly odies attract each other with a gravitational force that in inversely proportional to the square of the distance etween them. This law, Newton's Law of Gravitation, is an example of an inverse square law. Hence, the trajectories of heavenly odies are conic sections (circle, ellipses, paraolas, and hyperolas.) Coulom's Law of the attraction of charged particles is another example of an inverse square law. Therefore, the trajectories of charged particles (e.g., electrons) are conic sections. So, from the large scale of the universe to the microscopic scale of the atom, conic sections occur in nature. Determining conic sections What determines whether the intersection of the plane and the doule cone results in a circle, a paraola, an ellipse, a hyperola or one of the degenerate cases? Draw a side view of a doule cone eing intersected y a plane. The type of conic section depends on the angle " that the cutting plane makes with the horizontal and how this angle compares with the angle " made y the cone with the horizontal. 1. If " = 0, then the resulting conic section is a circle.. If " = #, then the resulting conic section is a paraola. 3. If " < #, then the resulting conic section is an ellipse.

2 4. If " > #, then the resulting conic section is a hyperola. Find the angle etween the cone, z = x + y, and the cutting plane, z = x + 3. ( ) \$ 63.4 > 45, hyperola. Classify the conic. Solution:" = tan #1 Degenerate conic sections If the cutting plane passes through the ase of the cone, then we may also otain a point, a line, or a pair of intersecting lines. These are known as degenerate conic sections. The degenerate form of a circle is a point. The degenerate form of a paraola is a line or two parallel lines. The degenerate form of an ellipse is a point. The degenerate form of a hyperola consists of two intersecting lines. Determine the type of degenerate conic section for x " y + x + 8y " 7 = 0. x " y + x + 8y " 7 = 0 is equivalent to x + x +1 ( ) " ( y " 4 y + 4) = 0. The last ( ) " ( y " ) = 0 (a degenerate hyperola), whose equation is equivalent to x +1 solution is the point ("1, ). Classification of conics y general quadratic equation Conics can e classified (or distinguished) y computing the discriminant, B " 4AC, of the general quadratic equation, Ax + Bxy + Cy + Dx + Ey + F = 0. We will not e studying any conics with the Bxy term, so we will always assume that B = 0. If B " 0, then the conic is rotated such that its major (and minor) axis is no longer parallel to one of the coordinate axes. 1. If B " 4AC > 0, then the conic is a hyperola. This is equivalent to showing that A and C have opposite signs.. If B " 4AC = 0, then the conic is a paraola. This is equivalent to showing that either A or C is equal to zero. 3. If B " 4AC < 0, then the conic is either an ellipse or a circle. This is equivalent to showing that A and C have the same sign. Circles are distinguished from ellipses when A = C. Identify each of the following conics: x + y " 4x + 6y "1= 0 (ellipse) x + y " 4x + 6y "1= 0 (circle) x " y " 4 x + 6y "1 = 0 (hyperola) x " 4x + 6y "1= 0 (paraola) Standard form equations of conic sections In Algera II conic sections were defined geometrically, i.e., as a set of points (called a locus) satisfying a distance relationship etween two points (circle, ellipse, and hyperola) and a point and a line (paraola). We can also define ellipses and hyperolas y considering the locus of points from two points and a line (directrix.) You should e familiar with using these equations to solve prolems involving conic sections. For example, let the points (-1, 6) and (3, -) e the endpoints of a diameter of a circle. Determine the y-intercepts of the circle.

3 Solution. The midpoint of the diameter is the center of the circle and is the point (1, ). Since the radius is the distance from the center to any point on the circle, the radius is the distance etween the points (1, ) and (3, -) or (3"1) + (" " ) = = 0. Using the standard form of the circle, the equation of the circle is (x "1) + (y " ) = 0. We can use this formula to find the y- intercepts y sustituting x = 0 into the equation. (0 "1) + (y " ) = 0 # (y " ) =19 # y = ± Paraolas We have seen paraolas efore as the shape of the graph of a quadratic function. Here, we give a more general definition of a paraola that emphasizes its geometric properties. A paraola is the set of all points in a plane whose distance from a fixed point is equal to its distance from a fixed line. The fixed point is called the focus and the fixed line is the directrix. The line passing through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix is called its axis of symmetry, and the point where the paraola intersects its axis of symmetry is called its vertex. The line segment that joins two points on the paraola, passes through the focus, and is perpendicular to the axis of symmetry is called the focal width. The vertex is midway etween the focus and the directrix. The graph of the paraola always curves around the focus and away from the directrix. The focal width is useful when sketching graphs of paraolas. We will use this definition to derive an equation of a paraola with vertex at the origin, focus at (0, p), and directrix y = "p. See figure 3a on p Using the distance formula etween two points, we can write (x " 0) + (y " p) = d 1. Since the distance d is just the vertical distance etween P and Q, then d = y + p. By the definition of a paraola, we have d 1 = d or (x " 0) + (y " p) = y + p. Squaring oth sides, we otain (x " 0) + (y " p) = (y + p) # x + y " py + p = y + py + p. Comining like terms, we otain x = 4 py. See figure 6 on p Depending on the relative location of the focus and the directrix, the paraola has different orientations and the equations differ too. If the x- term is squared, the paraola opens up or down. If the y-term is squared, the paraola opens left or right. If p is positive, the paraola opens up or to the right; if p is negative, the paraola opens down or to the left. Translations We can translate the graph of a paraola h units horizontally y replacing x with (x " h) and k units vertically y replacing y with (y " k). This leads to four standard equations of paraolas, one for each orientation. Convert equations of paraolas to standard form, sketch graphs Graph the paraola y + y + 8x +17 = 0 and specify its vertex, focus, directrix, and axis of symmetry. y + y + 8x +17 = 0 y + y = "8x "17 (separate x- and y-terms) y + y +1= "8x "17 +1= "8x "16 (complete the squared term)

4 (y +1) = "8(x + ) (factor oth sides) Therefore, the vertex is (-, -1). Since the y-term is squared and p is negative, the graph of the paraola opens left. The focus is a distance p from the vertex. Since 4 p = 8, p = and the focus is (-4, -1). The directrix is a distance p from the vertex on the opposite side from the focus, i.e., x = 0. The axis of symmetry is the horizontal line passing through the vertex y = "1. Finding a paraola from its focus and directrix Given the focus (3, 1) and the directrix y = -3, find the equation of the paraola. To find the standard form, we need to find h, k, and p; and we need to determine which of the four standard forms to use. The vertex lies halfway etween the vertex and the focus or at the point (3, -1). So h = 3 and k = -1. To find p, we find the distance etween the focus and the vertex, here. A quick sketch of the directrix and the vertex will determine which standard form to use. Since the directrix is horizontal and lies elow the vertex, the paraola curves up; and the correct standard form is (x " h) = 4 p(y " k). Therefore, we have (x " 3) = 4()(y +1) = 8(y +1). Prolem 11.R.74. See figure on p From the figure, the coordinates of A are " r ( r 1,0) and of V are 1 + r % \$,y # 1 '. So, VO = r 1 + r " % \$ ' + y & # & 1 and VA = r 1 + r # & % " r \$ 1 ( + y ' 1. # After sustituting, we get VO "VA = r # 1 + r % & & # % ( + y \$ ' 1 ( " r # 1 + r & & %% " r 1 ( + y \$ ' \$ ' 1 (. The \$ ' right side simplifies to r 1 r. Ellipses An ellipse is the set of all points in the plane, the sum of whose distances from two fixed points (called the foci, plural of focus) is constant. Using this definition, the text derives two standard forms for the equation of an ellipse using again the distance formula. The two forms depend on the orientation of the ellipse. See figures in property summaries on pp. 698 and 701. x a + y =1 x + y a =1 Read definitions for center, foci, major (focal) axis, minor axis, vertices (major axis), endpoints of minor axis, focal width, and eccentricity. The letter a represents the distance from the center to a vertex, represents the distance from the center to an endpoint on the minor axis, and c represents the distance etween the center and a focus. These three values are related y the equation a = + c. Notice the length of the major axis is a and the length of the minor axis is. The center is located midway etween the foci, midway etween the vertices, and midway etween the endpoints on the minor axis. The vertices lie along the major axis. The orientation of the ellipse depends on the parameter a; the term with the larger denominator determines the major axis. If we translate the center of an ellipse to the point (h, k), then we otain the standard forms: (x " h) (y " k) + =1 a (x " h) + (y " k) a =1

5 The foci, vertices, and endpoints are translated similarly. Curve sketching Sketch the graph of 9x + 5y "18x +100y "16 = 0. Identify the center, major axis, foci, vertices, endpoints of the minor axis, and x-intercepts. 1. First, we need to convert the equation to standard form. 9x + 5y "18x +100y "16 = 0 # 9(x " x) + 5(y + 4y) =16 # 9(x " x +1) + 5(y + 4x + 4) = # 9(x "1) + 5(y + ) = 5 # (x "1) (y + ) + = The center (h, k) is (1, -). 3. The major axis is determined y the larger denominator; here, the major axis is parallel to the x-axis and passes through the center, i.e., y = To determine the vertices and endpoints on the minor axis, we need to find the values of the parameters a and. a = 5 = 5 and = 9 = 3. Therefore, the vertices are (-4, -) and (6, -). The endpoints of the minor axis are (1, -5) and (1, 1). 5. To determine the foci, we need to find the value of the parameter c. Since c = a ", c = a " = 5 " 9 = 16 = 4. Therefore, the foci are (-3, -) and (5, -). 6. To determine the x-intercepts, sustitute y = 0 into the equation. (x "1) (0 + ) x "1= ± Now we can draw the graph. Eccentricity (x "1) 5 =1# # x =1± 9 \$ 4.73,".73 =1# (x "1) 5 = 5 9 # (x "1) = 15 9 " The eccentricity of an ellipse or a hyperola is defined to e the numer e = c a. The eccentricity is the ratio of the distance from the center to a focus divided y the distance from the center to a vertex. Since c < a for an ellipse, we know 0 < e <1. If e is close to zero, the shape is more circular; if e is close to one, the shape is more elongated. Since c > a for a hyperola, we know e >1. If e is close to one, the shape is more elongated; if e is close to one, the shape is more like an X; and if e " #, then the shape again is more elongated. Sketch a few ellipses and lael their foci. The shape of an ellipse depends on how close the foci are to the center. If the foci are close to the center, the shape is more circular. If the foci are closer to the vertices, the shape is more elongated. A numer that measures the shape is the eccentricity, where e = c a = a ". The eccentricity is the a ratio of the distance from the center of the ellipse to a focus divided y the distance from the center to a vertex. Since c < a, we know 0 < e <1. If e is close to zero, the shape is more circular; if e is close to one, the shape is more elongated.

6 Sketch x 36 + y x =1 and y =1 and lael their foci, ( ± 11,0) and 1 ( ± 35,0). The eccentricity of the first graph is e = c a = 11 " 0.55, and the eccentricity 6 of the second graph is e = c a = 35 6 " Since c > a for a hyperola, we know e >1. If e is close to one, the shape is more elongated; if e is close to one, the shape is more like an X; and if e " #, then the shape again is more elongated. Finding an ellipse from its graph Given the foci of an ellipse are (-3, 1) and (-1, 1) and the eccentricity is 1/3, find the equation of the ellipse and sketch its graph. We need to find a,, h and k and determine which standard form to use. Since the foci lie on the major axis, the major axis is horizontal and the standard form is (x " h) (y " k) + =1. Since the center is the midpoint of the foci, the center here is (-, a 1); therefore, h = - and k = 1. We need to find a and. Since c is the distance from the center to a foci, c =1. Since e = c a = 1 3, we know a = 3. Since = a " c, = 8 and (x + ) (y "1) =. The equation of the ellipse is + = See figure for 11.R.70. The figure shows an ellipse and a paraola. The curves are symmetric aout the x-axis and they oth have an x-intercept of 5. Find the equations of the ellipse and the paraola, given that the point (3, 0) is a focus of oth curves. Solution. For the paraola, the vertex is (5, 0), so we know y = 4 p(x " 5). Since the focus is (3, 0), then p = " and the equation of the paraola is y = "8(x " 5). For the ellipse, a = 5 and c = 3, so = a " c = 5 " 9 =16, so = 4. Thus the equation of the ellipse is x 5 + y 16 =1. Hyperolas A hyperola is the set of all points in the plane, the difference of whose distances from two fixed points (called the foci) is a positive constant. Using this definition, the text derives two standard forms for the equation of a hyperola using again the distance formula. The two forms depend on the orientation of the hyperola. See figures in property summaries on pp. 713 and 715. x a " y =1 y a " x =1 Read definitions of center, foci, focal axis, major (transverse) axis, minor (conjugate) axis, vertices, asymptotes, and eccentricity. The three values a,, and c are related y a new equation c = a +. This is ecause the foci lie inside the graph of the hyperola and away from the center; therefore, c > a. Unlike with the ellipse a is not always greater than. The length of the major axis is still a and the length of the minor

7 axis is still. The orientation of the hyperola depends on the parameter a; the term with the positive denominator determines the major axis. It appears from the graphs that the graph of a hyperola approaches one of two slant asymptotes. Let's see why. Using the second equation, let's solve for x. y a " x =1# y a = x +1# y we let x grow very large such that x >>, then y = ± a a = x + # y = a (x + ) # y = ± a x +. If x + " ± a x. The lines y = a x and y = " a x are the asymptotes of the hyperola and help us draw its graph. The asymptotes for the first form, x a " y =1, are y = a x and y = " a x. If we translate the center of a hyperola to the point (h, k), then we otain the standard forms: (x " h) a " (y " k) (y " k) (x " h) =1 a " =1 The foci, vertices, and asymptotes are translated similarly. Curve sketching (y " 3) (x " 4) Sketch the graph of the hyperola " =1. Identify the center, 9 5 transverse axis, conjugate axis, foci, vertices, asymptotes, and x-intercepts. 1. The center (h, k) is (4, 3).. The major axis is determined y the positive rational term; here, the major axis is the vertical line parallel to the y-axis passing through the vertex, x = To determine the vertices and endpoints on the minor axis, we need to find the values of the parameters a and. a = 9 = 3 and = 5 = 5. Note that a is not greater than. The vertices are (4, 0) and (4, 6). The endpoints of the minor axis are (-1, 3) and (9, 3). 4. To determine the foci, we need to find the value of the parameter c. Since c = a +, c = a + = = 34 " 5.8. Therefore, the foci are (4,3 " 34) and (4,3 + 34) or approximately (4, -.8) and (4, 8.8). 5. The asymptotes are y = ± a (x " h) + k, i.e., y = ± 3 (x " 4) To determine the x-intercepts, sustitute y = 0 into the equation. (x "1) (0 + ) (0 " 3) (x " 4) + =1# " =1# 9 (x " 4) " =1# (x " 4) = 0 # x = 4. Therefore, we have only one x-intercept, (4, 0) Now we can draw the graph. Finding a hyperola from its graph Given the asymptotes of a hyperola are y = ±(1 )x and the vertices are (±,0) find the equation of the hyperola.

8 We must solve for a,, h, and k. From the equations of the asymptotes, we know the center of the hyperola is the origin, i.e., (h, k) is (0, 0). Since the vertices lie along the x-axis, we know the orientation and the general form, x a " y =1. Since the vertices are a distance of from the center, we know a =. We also know the form of the asymptotes are y = ± x, and, therefore, =1. Sustituting for a,, h, and k, into the a general form, we otain x 4 " y 1 =1. Focal width The focal chord of a paraola, an ellipse, or a hyperola is a chord passing through the focus. For graphing purposes, it is useful to know the length of the focal chord perpendicular to the (major) axis. This length is called the focal width. See figure 8 on p The focal width for this paraola is equal to 4p. This is true generally for all paraolas. The focal widths of ellipses and hyperolas can also e computed. Knowing the length of the focal width is useful for graphing conic sections. Find the focal width of the paraola, x = 4 py, p > 0. Since the focus is the point ( 0, p) and the axis is the vertical line x = 0, the focal width is the length of the focal chord along the perpendicular line y = p. Sustituting p for y into the equation, we get x = 4 p. Solving for x, we get x = ±p and the endpoints of the focal chord are ("p, p) and ( p, p). The distance etween these points is 4 p. This is true for all paraolas. Find the focal width of the paraola, (y +1) = "8(x + ). The endpoints of the chord passing through the focus and perpendicular to the axis of symmetry are ("4,y). Let s solve for y. (y +1) = "8("4 + ) = "8(") =16 # y +1= ±4. Solving these two equations, we otain y = 3,"5 and the two points are (-4, 3) and (-4, -5). The distance etween these two points is 3 (-5) = 8. Find the focal width of the ellipse, x a + y =1, where a >. Since the focal width passes through the focus ( c,0), the points on the graph of the ellipse that lie on the focal chord are ( c,±y 1 ). We need to solve for y 1 to determine the focal width, y 1. For ( a " ) ellipses, we have a = + c, so c = a ". So, + y 1 =1. Solving for a y 1 we get y 1 = ±. Therefore, the focal width is a a. Find the focal width of the hyperola, x a " y =1. Since the focal width passes through the focus ( c,0), the points on the graph of the ellipse that lie on the focal chord are ( c,±y 1 ). We need to solve for y 1 to determine the focal width, y 1. For hyperolas,

9 we have c = a +, so c = a +. So, ( a + ) " y 1 a =1. Solving for y 1 we get y 1 = ±. Therefore, the focal width is, exactly the same focal width as for the a a ellipse. Applications You should e familiar with using these equations to solve prolems involving conic sections. For example, let the points (-1, 6) and (3, -) e the endpoints of a diameter of a circle. Determine the y-intercepts of the circle. Solution. The midpoint of the diameter is the center of the circle and is the point (1, ). Since the radius is the distance from the center to any point on the circle, the radius is the distance etween the points (1, ) and (3, -) or (3"1) + (" " ) = = 0. Using the standard form of the circle, the equation of the circle is (x "1) + (y " ) = 0. We can use this formula to find the y- intercepts y sustituting x = 0 into the equation. (0 "1) + (y " ) = 0 # (y " ) =19 # y = ± See figure for 11.R.70. The figure shows an ellipse and a paraola. The curves are symmetric aout the x-axis and they oth have an x-intercept of 5. Find the equations of the ellipse and the paraola, given that the point (3, 0) is a focus of oth curves. Solution. For the paraola, the vertex is (5, 0), so we know y = 4 p(x " 5). Since the focus is (3, 0), then p = " and the equation of the paraola is y = "8(x " 5). For the ellipse, a = 5 and c = 3, so = a " c = 5 " 9 =16, so = 4. Thus the equation of the ellipse is x 5 + y 16 =1.
