Now we have tackled the other 2 conic sections, We will now shift our minds in thinking all about Parabolas. Just like what we said in the introduction, We believe that Parabolas are the weirdest of all Conic Sections. Now first of all, the first Parabola below has the simplest formula which is x^2=4ay. The slider below controls the value of a. How can we find all of the things we need to find, just like, the focus, the directrix and the Latus Rectum.? We just need to use all the formulas given at the website.
1. What are the directrix, foci and Latus Rectum when the value of a is 5.
