#### Important Terms on Conic Sections

1. Circle, ellipse, parabola and hyperbola are curves which are obtained by intersection of a plane and cone in different positions
2. Circle: It is the set of all points in a plane that are equidistant from a fixed point in that plane.
3. Parabola: It is the set of all points in a plane which are equidistant from a fixed point (focus) and a fixed line in the plane. Fixed point does not lie on the line.

4. Latus Rectum: A chord through focus perpendicular to axis of parabola is called its latus rectum.
5. Ellipse: It is the set of points in a plane the sum of whose distances from two fixed points in the plane is a constant and is always greater than the distances between the fixed points.
6. Hyperbola: It is the set of all points in a plane, the differences of whose distance from two fixed points in the plane is a constant.

### Find the equation of the circle with centre (0, 2) and radius 2.

The equation of a circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is given as (x – h)² + (y – k)² = r²
It is given that centre (h, k) = (0, 2) and radius (r) = 2.
Therefore, the equation of the circle is
(x – 0)² + (y – 2)² = 2²
⟹ x² + y² + 4 – 4 y = 4
⟹ x² + y² – 4y = 0

### Find the equation of the circle with centre (–2, 3) and radius 4.

The equation of a circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is given as (x – h)² + (y – k)² = r²
It is given that centre (h, k) = (–2, 3) and radius (r) = 4.
Therefore, the equation of the circle is (x + 2)² + (y – 3)² = (4)²
⟹ x² + 4x + 4 + y² – 6y + 9 = 16
⟹ x² + y² + 4x – 6y – 3 = 0

### Find the centre and radius of the circle (x + 5)² + (y – 3)² = 36

The equation of the given circle is
(x + 5)² + (y – 3)² = 36. (x + 5)² + (y – 3)² = 36
⇒ {x – (–5)}² + (y – 3)² = 6², which is of the form (x – h)² + (y – k)² = r², where h = – 5, k = 3, and r = 6.
Thus, the centre of the given circle is (–5, 3), while its radius is 6.

### Find the equation of the circle passing through the points (4, 1) and (6, 5) and whose centre is on the line 4x + y = 16.

Let the equation of the required circle be (x – h)² + (y – k)² = r².
Since the circle passes through points (4, 1) and (6, 5), (4 – h)² + (1 – k)² = r² …… (1)
(6 – h)² + (5 – k)² = r² …… (2)
Since the centre (h, k) of the circle lies on line 4x + y = 16, 4h + k = 16 …… (3)
From equations (1) and (2), we obtain (4 – h)² + (1 – k)² = (6 – h)² + (5 – k)²
⇒ 16 – 8h + h² + 1 – 2k + k² = 36 – 12h + h² + 25 – 10k + k²
⇒ 16 – 8h + 1 – 2k = 36 – 12h + 25 – 10k
⇒ 4h + 8k = 44 ⇒ h + 2k = 11 …… (4)
On solving equations (3) and (4), we obtain h = 3 and k = 4.
On substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we obtain
(4 – 3)² + (1 – 4)² = r² ⇒ (1)² + (– 3)² = r²
⇒ 1 + 9 = r² ⇒ r² = 10
⇒ r =√10
Thus, the equation of the required circle is (x – 3)² + (y – 4)² = (√10)²
x² – 6x + 9 + y² – 8y + 16 = 10 x² + y² – 6x – 8y + 15 = 0

### Find the coordinates of the focus, axis of the parabola, the equation of directrix and the length of the latus rectum for y² = 12x.

The given equation is y² = 12x.
Here, the coefficient of x is positive.
Hence, the parabola opens towards the right.
On comparing this equation with y² = 4ax, we obtain 4a = 12 ⇒ a = 3
∴ Coordinates of the focus = (a, 0) = (3, 0)
Since the given equation involves y², the axis of the parabola is the x-axis. Equation of direcctrix, x = –a i.e., x = – 3 i.e., x + 3 = 0
Length of latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 3 = 12.

### Find the equation of the parabola that satisfies the following conditions: Focus (6, 0); directrix x = –6.

Focus (6, 0); directrix, x = –6
Since the focus lies on the x-axis, the x-axis is the axis of the parabola. Therefore, the equation of the parabola is either of the form y² = 4ax or y² = – 4ax.
It is also seen that the directrix, x = –6 is to the left of the y-axis, while the focus (6, 0) is to the right of the y-axis.
Hence, the parabola is of the form y² = 4ax. Here, a = 6
Thus, the equation of the parabola is y² = 24x.

4. Find equation of circle concentric with circle 4x² + 4y² – 12x – 16y – 21 = 0 and of half its area. [Answer: 2x² + 2y² – 6x + 8y + 1 = 0]
5. Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given condition Major axis on the x-axis and passes through the points (4, 3) and (6, 2). [Answer: x²/52 + y²/13 = 1]
