# What is parabola?

A parabola is a curve where any point is at an equal distance from: a fixed point (the focus ), and a fixed straight line (the directrix).

Tutor

A parabola is a curve where any point is at an equal distance from: a fixed point (the focus ), and a fixed straight line (the directrix).(e=1)

A symmetrical open plane curve formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to its side. The path of a projectile under the influence of gravity follows a curve of this shape.

Maths & Physics Teacher

A parabola is defined as the locus of a point which is equidistant from a fixed point (called FOCUS) and a fixed straight line (called DIRECTRIX).

Answer in Physics : Parabolic Motion of Projectiles. A projectile is an object upon which the only force is gravity. Gravity, being a downward force, causes a projectile to accelerate in the downward direction. A parabola is a curve where any point is at an equal distance from: a fixed point (the focus...

From conic section the eccentricity is (e)=1 then it is a parabola. Generally parabola is represent as y^2= 4 ax with origin as a vertex if (y-k)^2=4 a (x-h) here vertex is (h,k).

Physics Master

When you plot a parabolic function on a graph, you get a U shaped like curve (ex - f (x) = x^2 + 3 ). This curve is called a parabola. Parabolas have various aspects related to them like there focus, vertex, etc.

“Empowering students to reach their full potential”

The parabola is defined as the locus of a point which moves so that it is always the same distance from a fixed point (called the focus) and a given line (called the directrix).

Tutor

If eccentricity is equlal to 1 then conic section is parabola.

Tutor

A parabola is a two dimensional mirror symmetrical curve which is approximately you shaped.
