Description
MTH 108 Precalculus Mathematics II 9.6 Polar Equations of Conics Notes L. Sterling Abstract Provide a generalization to each of the key terms listed in this section. Fixed Point and Fixed Line What is the ﬁxed point? When it comes to polar equations of conics, the ﬁxed point would be F. What is the ﬁxed line? When it comes to polar equations of conics, the ﬁxed line would be l. Distances Point and Fixed Point The distance between any point and a ﬁxed point would be the following: d(P;F) Point and Fixed Line The distance between any point and a ﬁxed line would be the following: d(P;l) Ratio The ratio between the point and ﬁxed point along with the point and its ﬁxed line would be expressed by the following ratio: d(P;F) d(P;l) Conic Section A conic section is a plane’s collection of points, which points are expressed with P, which makes the following ﬁxed positive number: e = d(P;F) d(P;l) Eccentricity When it comes to conics, e would the conic’s eccentricity. Directrix When it comes to conics, l, which is the ﬁxed line, is also known as the conic’s directrix. 1 Focus When it comes to conics, F, which is the ﬁxed point, is also known as the conic’s focus. Conics by Conic Section Conic Classification Ellipse 0 < e < 1 Hyperbola
