Rahul replied | 2 days ago

If a line be drawn through the focus and parallel to the directrix, it will intersect the parabola at two points that lie a distance 2 p from the focus. The line segment connecting these two points is called the focal chord.

A conic section, or conic is the locus of a point which moves in a plane so that its distance from a fixed
point is in a constant ratio to its perpendicular distance from a fixed straight line and this constant ratio is
called eccentricity denoted by e .

Its square of x = - 4 ay. From the given data, square of x + square of (y+a) i.e., distance of any point on parabola from focus = distance of pt. from directrix i.e. square of (y-a). On solving it, you get the given result.

In any conics (i.e., parabola or ellipse or hyperbola ), a line passing through its focus and parallel to its directrix is called the latus rectum.
For example, in parabola: square of y = 4ax, the equation of the latus ractum y=a and its length = 4a;
in ellipse: square of (x/a) + square of (y/b)=1, a>b, the equation of the latus ractum y=ae, -ae and its length = 2(square...  more»
