Ellipse

Recommended Posts

When you have a circle with radius r and and an angle A in standard position, you can find the point the terminal side intersects with the circle.

 

How would you do that for an ellipse?

You simultaneously solve the eqution of the ellipse and the relavent side.

Making sure that you use a form that is most convenient (parametric equation of elipse).
