The direction of ellipse is based on its transverse axis. If its along x axis, its horizontal ellipse and if the axis is along y axis, its vertical ellipse. In horizotal ellipse-- x-axis ia major axis ,y-axis is minor axis - 2a>2b In vertical ellipse --- y axis is major axis, x-axis is minor axis... read more

The major and minor axes of an ellipse are diameters (lines through the center) of the ellipse. The major axis is the longest diameter and the minor axis the shortest. If they are equal in length then the ellipse is a circle.There are two principal axes of an ellipse. The Major axis is the axis longer... read more

m= the slope of the tangent= dy/dx Tangent A: y= mx + square root( square of (am) + square of b), where m=the slope of the tangent=dy/dx or at (x1, y1), xx1/square of a + yy1/square of b=1. c = sqrt (a*a*m*m + b*b).

If you put a=b then equation of ellipse reduces to x^2+y^2=a^2 and it becomes circle that is the special case of ellipse.

What are the properties of conjugate diameters?

Vanaja S.

Software Engineer

Any chord that passes through the center of an ellipse is call its diameter. It follows that the family of parallel chords define two diameters: One in the direction to which they are all parallel and the other the locus of their midpoints. Such two diameters are called conjugate.
