Conic Sections

Hyperbolas


Definition l.jpg

Definition

  • The conic section formed by a plane which intersects both of the right conical surfaces

  • Formed whenor when the plane isparallel to the axis of the cone


Definition3 l.jpg

Definition

  • A hyperbola is the set of all points in the plane where

    • The difference between the distances

    • From two fixed points (foci)

    • Is a constant

Geogebra

Demonstration


Experimenting with definition l.jpg

Experimenting with Definition

  • Turn on Explore geometric definition. A purple point will appear on the hyperbola, along with two line segments labeled L1 and L2. Drag the purple point around the hyperbola.

    • Do the lengths of L1 and L2 change?

    • What do you notice about the absolute value of the differences of the lengths?

    • How do these observations relate to the geometric definition of a hyperbola.

  • Observe the values of L1, L2, and the difference | L1 − L2 | as you vary the values of a and b.

    • How is the difference | L1 − L2 | related to the values of a and/or b? (Hint: Think about multiples.)

    • Determine the difference | L1 − L2 | for a hyperbola where a = 3 and b = 4. Use the Gizmo to check your answer.

Elements of An Ellipse

  • Transverse axis

    • Line joining the intercepts

  • Conjugate axis

    • Passes throughcenter, perpendicularto transverse axis

  • Vertices

    • Points where hyperbola intersects transverse axis

The Return of the Hyperbola


Eccentricity of a hyperbola l.jpg

Eccentricity of a Hyperbola

  • The hyperbola can be wide or narrow


Eccentricity of a hyperbola13 l.jpg

Eccentricity of a Hyperbola

  • As with eccentricity of an hyperbola, the formula is

    • Note that for hyperbolas c > a

    • Thus eccentricity > 1


Try it out14 l.jpg

Try It Out

  • If the vertices are (1, 6) and (1, 8) and the eccentricity is 5/2

    • Find the equation (standard form) of the hyperbola

  • The center of the hyperbola is at (-3, -3) and the conjugate axis has length 6, and the eccentricity = 2

    • Find two possible hyperbola equations


Application locating position l.jpg

Application – Locating Position

  • For any point on a hyperbolic curve

    • Difference between distances to foci is constant.

  • Result: hyperbolas can be used to locate enemy guns

“If the sound of an enemy gun is heard at two listening posts and the difference in time is calculated, then the gun is known to be located on a particular hyperbola.  A third listening post will determine a second hyperbola, and then the gun emplacement can be spotted as the intersection of the two hyperbolas.”


Application locating position16 l.jpg

Application – Locating Position

  • The loran system navigator

    • equipped with a map that gives curves, called loran lines of position.

    • Navigators find the time interval between these curves,

    • Narrow down the area that their craft's position is in.

  • Then switch to a different pair of loran transmitters

    • Repeat the procedure

    • Find another curve representing the craft's position.

  • Consider a the blue string

  • Keep markeragainst rulerand with stringtight

  • Keep end ofruler on focusF1 , string tied to other end


Graphing a hyperbola on the ti l.jpg

Graphing a Hyperbola on the TI

  • As with the ellipse, the hyperbola is not a function

  • Possible to solve for y

    • Get two expressions

    • Graph each
