## Class 11 Maths NCERT Solutions – Conic Sections

The conic sections are a kind of nondegenerate curves produced by the crossings of a plane and a cone. If a plane is normal to the axis of the cone, a circle is generated. For a plane that is not normal to the axis and meets only a single nappe, the curve generated is either a parabola or an ellipse. Whereas hyperbola is the curve generated by a plane meeting both nappes. Both hyperbola and ellipse are termed as central conics. You can also find the whole list of NCERT solutions for Class 11 maths, for all the chapters of class 11 Maths subject.

The NCERT solutions and notes are designed by experts here as per the NCERT syllabus prescribed by the Central Board of Secondary Education for class 11. The important topics covered here for Conic sections are;

- Introduction to conic section
- Sections of a circle
- Circle, Parabola, Hyperbola and Ellipse

Due to the geometric assumption, the conics were examined by the Greeks even before its importance to the orbital inverse square law was recognised. Kepler initially noticed the ellipse shape of the orbits. Accordingly, Newton derived the pattern of orbits by utilizing calculus, by assuming that the gravitational force is the inverse square of the distance. Based on the energy of the orbiting object, 4 types of conic sections are possible.

(a – \(\frac{1}{3}\))^{2} + (b – \(\frac{1}{2}\))^{2} = \(\frac{1}{14}\)^{2}

**Q.4: A circle is given with centre (2, 2) and radius \(\sqrt{5}\). Obtain the equation of the given circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

**The General equation of a circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is:**

**The equation of a circle is:**

(a – 2)^{2} + (b – 2)^{2} = \(\sqrt{5}^{2}\)

(a – 2)^{2} + (b – 2)^{2} = \(\sqrt{5}^{2}\)

a^{2 }– 4a + 4 + b^{2} – 4b + 4 = 5

a^{2 }– 4a + b^{2} – 4b + 8 = 5

a^{2 }– 4a + b^{2} – 4b + 8 – 5 = 0

**The equation of a circle is:**

(a – (- x)^{2} + (b – (- y)^{2} = \(\sqrt{x^{2} – y^{2}}^{2}\)

(a + x)^{2} + (b + y)^{2} = \(\sqrt{x^{2} – y^{2}}^{2}\)

(a + x)^{2} + (b + y)^{2} = x^{2} – y^{2}

a^{2 }+ 2ax + x^{2} + b^{2} + 2by + y^{2} = x^{2} – y^{2}

**a ^{2 }+ 2ax + b^{2} + 2by + y^{2} = 0**

** **

**Q.6: The equation of a given circle is given as (a + 5) ^{2} + (b – 3)^{2} = 36. Find the centre and radius of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

Given:

The equation of a given circle (a + 5)^{2} + (b – 3)^{2} = 36

(a + 5)^{2} + (b – 3)^{2} = 36

{a – (- 5)}^{2} + (b – 3) = 6^{2}

Which is of the form (a – h) ^{2 }+ (b – k) ^{2} = r^{2}, where h = – 5, k = 3 and r = 6.

**Hence, the centre of the circle is (-5, 3), and the radius of circle is 6.**

**Find the radius and centre of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

Given:

The equation of a given circle a^{2 }+ b^{2} – 4a – 4b + 3 = 0

a^{2 }+ b^{2} – 4a – 4b + 3 = 0

a^{2 }– 4a + b^{2} – 4b + 3 = 0

{a^{2 }– 2.a.2 + 2^{2}} + {b^{2 }– 2.b.2 + 2^{2}} – 2^{2} – 2^{2} + 3 = 0

{a^{2 }– 2.a.2 + 2^{2}} + {b^{2 }– 2.b.2 + 2^{2}} – 8 + 3 = 0

{a^{2 }– 2.a.2 + 2^{2}} + {b^{2 }– 2.b.2 + 2^{2}} = 5

(a – 2)^{2} + (b – 2)^{2} = \(\sqrt{5}^{2}\)

Which is of the form (a – h) ^{2 }+ (b – k) ^{2} = r^{2}, where h = 2, k = 2 and r = \(\sqrt{5}\).

**Thus, the centre of the circle is (2, 2), and the radius of circle is \(\sqrt{5}\).**

** **

**Find the centre and radius of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** The equation of a given circle a ^{2 }+ b^{2} – 6a + 8b – 14 = 0**

a^{2 }– 6a + b^{2} + 8b – 14 = 0

{a^{2 }– 2.a.3 + 3^{2}} + {b^{2} + 2.b.4 + 4^{2}} – 3^{2 }– 4^{2 }– 14 = 0

(a – 3) ^{2} + (b + 4) ^{2} – 9 – 16 – 14 = 0

(a – 3) ^{2} + (b + 4) ^{2} – 39 = 0

(a – 3) ^{2} + (b + 4) ^{2} = 39

(a – 3) ^{2} + (b – (- 4)) ^{2} = 39

Which is of the form (a – h) ^{2 }+ (b – k) ^{2} = r^{2}, where h = 3, k = 4 and r = \(\sqrt{39}\).

**Thus, the centre of the circle is (3, 4), and the radius of circle is \(\sqrt{39}\).**

** **

**Q.9: The equation of a given circle is given as 2a ^{2 }+ 2b^{2} – 8a = 0**

**Find the centre and radius of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

Given:

The equation of a given circle 2a^{2 }+ 2b^{2} – 8a = 0

2a^{2 }+ 2b^{2} – 8a = 0

2a^{2 }– 8a + 2b^{2} = 0

2[a^{2} – 4a + b^{2}] = 0

{a^{2} – 2.a.2 + 2^{2}} – 2^{2} + (b – 0)^{2} = 0

^{2}– 2.a.2 + 2

^{2}] + [b – 0]

^{2}– 2

^{2}= 0

(a – 2)^{2} + (b – 0)^{2} = 2^{2} = 4

Which is of the form (a – h) ^{2 }+ (b – k) ^{2} = r^{2}, where h = 2, k = 0 and r = \(\sqrt{4}\) = 2.

**Thus, the centre of the circle is (3, 4), and the radius of circle is 2.**

** **

**Q.10: The circle passing through the points (6, 2) and (4, 3) and whose centre lies on the line 2a + y = 8. Find the equation of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

**The equation of a required circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is given as**

**(a – h) ^{2} + (b – k)^{2} = r^{2}**

As the circle passes through (6, 2) and (4, 3)

(6 – h)^{2} + (2 – k)^{2} = r^{2} **. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1)**

(4 – h)^{2} + (3 – k)^{2} = r^{2} **. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (2)**

The centre (h, k) of the circle lies on the line 2a + y = 8,

2h + k = 8 **. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (3)**

**Now, On Comparing equations 1 and 2, we will get:**

(6 – h)^{2} + (2 – k)^{2} = (4 – h)^{2} + (3 – k)^{2}

36 – 12h + h^{2} + 4 – 4k + k^{2} = 16 – 8h + h^{2} + 9 – 6k + k^{2}

36 – 12h + 4 – 4k = 16 – 8h + 9 – 6k

– 12h – 4k + 8h + 6k = 16 + 9 – 36 – 4

4h – 2k = 15 **. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (4)**

**Now, on Solving Equations (3) and (4), we will get:**

h = \(\frac{31}{8}\)

k = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

**Substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we will get:**

(6 – \(\frac{31}{8}\))^{2} + (2 – \(\frac{1}{4}\))^{2} = r^{2}

**\(\Rightarrow\) r = 7.57**

**The required equation is:**

(a – \(\frac{31}{8}\))^{2} + (b – \(\frac{1}{4}\))^{2} = r^{2}

(a – \(\frac{31}{8}\))^{2} + (b – \(\frac{1}{4}\))^{2} = 7.57^{2}

**Therefore, the required equation is: 64a ^{2}– 496a + 64b^{2} -32b = 2702.51**

**Q.11: The circle passing through the points (3, 2) and (-2, 2) and whose centre lies on the line a – 3y – 13 = 0. Find the equation of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

**The General equation of a circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is:**

**(a – h) ^{2} + (b – k)^{2} = r^{2}**

As the circle passes through (3, 2) and (-2, 1)

**(3 – h) ^{2} + (2 – k)^{2} = r^{2} . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1)**

**(-2 – h) ^{2} + (2 – k)^{2} = r^{2} . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (2)**

The centre (h, k) of the circle lies on the line a – 3y – 13 = 0,

**h – 3k = 13 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (3)**

**Now, on comparing equations 1 and 2, we will get:**

(3 – h)^{2} + (2 – k)^{2 }= (-2 – h)^{2} + (2 – k)^{2}

9 – 6h + h^{2} = 4 + 4h + h^{2}

9 – 6h = 4 + 4h

**h = 0.5 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (4)**

**Now, on solving equation (3), we will get:**

k = – \(\frac{25}{6}\) = – 4.166

**Now, on substituting the values of h and k in equation (1), we will get:**

(3 – 0.5)^{2} + (2 – (- \(\frac{25}{6}\)))^{2} = r^{2}

(2.5) ^{2} + (2 + \(\frac{25}{6}\))^{2} = r^{2}

(2.5) ^{2} + (2 + 4.16)^{2} = r^{2}

(2.5) ^{2} + (6.16)^{2} = r^{2}

r^{2 }= 44.1956

r = 6.65

**The required equation is:**

(a – h)^{2} + (b – k)^{2} = r^{2}

(a – 0.5)^{2} + (b – (- 4.16))^{2} = r^{2}

(a – 0.5)^{2} + (b + 4.16)^{2} = r^{2}

a^{2} – a + 6.25 + b^{2} + 8.32b + 17.30 = 44.19

a^{2} – a + b^{2} + 8.32b = 44.19 – 6.25 – 17.30

**a ^{2} + b^{2} – a + 8.32b – 20.64 = 0**

** **

**Q.12: The radius of the circle is 6 whose centre lies on x – axis and passes through the point (3, 2). Find the equation.**

** **

**Sol:**

Given:

The radius of the circle is 6 and passes through the point (3, 2)

**The General equation of a circle with centre (h, k) and radius r is:**

**(a – h) ^{2} + (b – k)^{2} = r^{2}**

As, the centre lies on x – axis, k = 0, the equation becomes:

(a – h)^{ 2} + b^{ 2} = 36

(3 – h)^{ 2} + 2^{2} = 36

(3 – h)^{ 2} = 36 – 4

3 – h = \(\sqrt{32}\)

h = \(3 + 4\sqrt{2}\) or h = \(3 – 4\sqrt{2}\)

**Q.13: ****The circle passing through (0, 0) and making intercepts a and b on the coordinate axes. Find the equation of the circle.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Suppose, the equation of the required circle be (x – h) ^{2} + (y – k) ^{2} = r ^{2}**

The centre of the circle passes through (0, 0):

(0 – h) ^{2} + (0 – k) ^{2 }= r ^{2}

h ^{2} + k ^{2} = r ^{2}

Therefore, the equation of the circle is:

(x – h) ^{2} + (y – k) ^{2} = h ^{2} + k ^{2} .

Given, the circle makes intercepts a and b on the coordinate axes.

The circle passes through points (a, 0) and (0, b).

Therefore, (a – h) ^{2} + (0 – k) ^{2} = h ^{2} + k ^{2} ** . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (1)**

(0 – h) ^{2} + (b – k) ^{2} = h ^{2} + k ^{2} **. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (2)**

Now, from equation (1), we obtain:

a ^{2} – 2ah + h ^{2} + k ^{2} = h ^{2} + k ^{2}

a^{ 2} – 2ah = 0

a (a – 2h) = 0

a = 0 or (a – 2h) = 0

We know, a ≠ 0; hence, (a – 2h) = 0 ⇒ h =a/2.

Now, from equation (2), we will get:

h ^{2} + b ^{2} – 2bk + k ^{2} = h ^{2} + k ^{2}

b ^{2} – 2bk = 0

b (b – 2k) = 0

b = 0 or(b – 2k) = 0

However, b ≠ 0;

Therefore, (b – 2k) = 0 ⇒ **k =b/2.**

**Thus, the equation of the required circle is:**

**Q.14: ****The circle with centre (3, 3) and passes through the point (6, 5), find the equation of a circle?**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**The centre of the circle (h, k) = (3, 3). **

As the circle passes through point (6, 5), the radius (r) of the circle is the distance between the points (2, 2) and (6, 5).

\(r = \sqrt{(3 – 6)^{2} + (3 – 5)^{2}} + \sqrt{(- 3)^{2} + (- 2)^{2}} = \sqrt{9 + 4} = \sqrt{13}\\\)**Therefore, the equation of the circle is**:

**Q.****15: Check whether the point (–2.0, 3.0) lies inside, outside or on the circle x ^{2} + y ^{2} = 25? **

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**The equation of the given circle is x ^{2} + y ^{2} = 25**

x ^{2} + y ^{2} = 25

(x – 0)^{2} + (y – 0)^{2} = 5^{2} , which is of the form (a – h)^{ 2} + (b – k)^{ 2} = r^{2}, where h = 0, k = 0, and r = 5.

Centre = (0, 0) and radius = 5

Distance between point (– 2.0, 3.0) and centre (0, 0)

\(\sqrt{(- 2 – 0)^{2} + (3 – 0)^{2}}\\\)=\(\sqrt{4 + 9} = \sqrt{13} = 3.60 (approx.) < 5\)

As, the distance between point (– 2.0, 3.0) and centre (0, 0) of the circle is less than the radius of the circle, **point (– 2.0, 3.0) lies inside the circle.**

** **

#### Exercise 11.2

**Q.1: For the equation y ^{2} = 16x, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** y ^{2} = 16x**

As the coefficient of x is positive, the given **parabola has the opening on the right side.**

By comparing this equation with y^{2} = 4ax, we get:

4a = 16 ⇒ **a = 4**

Therefore, **focus coordinates** = (a, 0) **= (4, 0)**

The given equation has y^{2}, the x-axis is the axis of the parabola.

Directrix equation, x = – a = – 4

So, **x + 4 = 0**

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 4 = 16**

**Q.2: For the equation x ^{2} = 8y, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** x ^{2} = 8y**

As the coefficient of y is positive, the given** parabola has the opening upwards.**

By comparing this equation with x^{2} = 4ay, we get

4a = 8 ⇒ **a = 2**

Therefore, **focus coordinates** = (0, a) **= (0, 2)**

The given equation has x^{2}, the y – axis is the axis of the parabola.

Directrix equation, y = – a = – 2

So, **x + 2 = 0**

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 2 = 8**

** **

**Q.3: For the equation y ^{2} = – 12x, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** y ^{2} = – 12x**

As the coefficient of x is negative, the given **parabola has the opening on the left side.**

By comparing this equation with y^{2} = – 4ax, we get

4a = 12 ⇒ **a = 3**

Therefore, **focus coordinates** = (- a, 0) **= (- 3, 0)**

The given equation has y^{2}, the x-axis is the axis of the parabola.

** Directrix equation, x = a = 2**

So,** x + 4 = 0**

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 3 = 12**

** **

**Q.4: For the equation x ^{2} = – 20y, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** x ^{2} = – 20y**

As the coefficient of y is negative, the given **parabola has the opening downwards.**

By comparing this equation with x^{2} = – 4ay, we get:

– 4a = – 20 ⇒ **a = 5**

Therefore, **focus coordinates** = (0, a) = **(0, 5)**

The given equation has x^{2}, the y – axis is the axis of the parabola.

** Directrix equation, y = a = 5**

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 5 = 20**

** **

**Q.5: For the equation y ^{2} = 24x, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** y ^{2} = 24x**

As the coefficient of x is positive, the given **parabola has the opening on the right side.**

By comparing this equation with y^{2} = 4ax, we get:

4a = 24 ⇒ **a = 6**

Therefore, **focus coordinates**** =** (a, 0) = **(6, 0)**

The given equation has y^{2}, the x-axis is the axis of the parabola.

**Directrix equation, x = – a = – 6**

**So, x + 6 = 0**

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × 6 = 24**

**Q.6: For the equation x ^{2} = – 7y, determine the focus coordinates, the directrix equation, the length of the latus rectum and the axis of the parabola.**

**Sol:**

**Given:**

** x ^{2} = – 7y**

As the coefficient of y is negative, the given **parabola has the opening downwards.**

By comparing this equation with x^{2} = – 4ay, we get:

– 4a = – 7 ⇒ a = \(\frac{7}{4}\)

Therefore, **focus coordinates** = (0, a) = (0, \(\frac{7}{4}\))

The given equation has x^{2}, **the y – axis is the axis of the parabola**.

** Directrix equation,** y = a = \(\frac{7}{4}\)

**Therefore, Length of the latus rectum = 4a = 4 × \(\frac{7}{4}\) = 7**

** **

**Q7. Obtain the equation of the parabola which satisfies the given conditions below: **

**(i) Focus coordinates**** = (8, 0) **

**(ii) Directrix (x) = – 8**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Focus coordinates**** = (8, 0)**

**(ii) Directrix (x) = – 8**

The axis of the given parabola is the x – axis as the focus is represented on the x – axis.

The required equation can be either y^{2} = 4ax and y^{2} = – 4ax

As we know, **d****irectrix (x) = – 8**

As the coefficient of x is negative, the given **parabola has the opening on the** **left side and the focus (8, 0)**

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = y^{2} = 4ax,

**Here, a = 8**

**Thus, the equation of the parabola = y ^{2} = 32 x.**

** **

**Q.8: Obtain the equation of the parabola which satisfies the given conditions below: **

**(i) Focus coordinates**** = (0, – 5)**

**(ii) Directrix (y) = 5**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Focus coordinates**** = (0, – 5)**

**(ii) Directrix (x) = 5**

The axis of the given parabola is the y – axis as the focus is represented on the y – axis.

The required equation can be either x^{2} = 4ay and x^{2} = – 4ay

As we know, **d****irectrix (x) = 5**

As the coefficient of x is negative, the given **parabola has the opening on the left side and the focus (0, -5)**

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = x^{2} = – 4ay,

**Here, a = 5**

**Thus, the equation of the parabola = x ^{2} = – 20y**

**Q.9: Obtain the equation of the parabola which satisfies the given conditions below: **

**(i) Vertex is at origin.**

**(ii) Focus coordinates**** = (4, 0)**

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Vertex is at origin i.e., (0, 0)**

**(ii) Focus coordinates**** = (4, 0)**

As the vertex of a parabola lies at origin and the focus is represented on the positive side of the x – axis, and hence, the axis of the parabola is x – axis.

**The required equation is ****y ^{2} = 4ax **

As we know, focus is (4, 0)

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = y^{2} = 4ax

**Here, a = 4**

**Thus, the equation of the parabola = y ^{2} = 16 x **

** **

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Vertex is at origin i.e., (0, 0)**

**(ii) Focus coordinates**** = (- 3, 0)**

As the vertex of a parabola lies at origin and the focus is represented on the negative side of the x – axis, and hence, **the axis of the parabola is x – axis.**

The required equation is **y ^{2} = – 4ax**

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = y^{2} = – 4ax

As we know, focus is (- 3, 0)

**Here, a = 3**

**Thus, the equation of the parabola = y ^{2} = – 12 x**

**The axis of the parabola is on x – axis.**

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Vertex is at origin i.e., (0, 0)**

**(ii) Passing through coordinates**** = (3, 5) **

As the vertex of a parabola lies at origin and the passing through coordinates = (3, 5).

The required equation is either y^{2} = 4ax or y^{2} = – 4ax

**The coordinates (3, 5) is in first quadrant**.

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = y^{2} = 4ax, whereas (3, 5) should satisfy the equation

So,

5^{2} = 4a (3)

25 = 12 a

a = \(\frac{25}{12}\)

**The parabola’s equation is: **

y^{2} = 4 (\(\frac{25}{12}\)) x

**3 y ^{2} = 25 x**

**The equation is symmetric as considered with y – axis.**

**Sol:**

**Given:**

**(i) Vertex is at origin i.e., (0, 0)**

**(ii) Passing through coordinates**** = (6, 4)**

As the vertex of a parabola lies at origin and the passing through coordinates = (6, 4).

The required equation is either x^{2} = 4ay or x^{2} = – 4ay

**The coordinates (6, 4) is in first quadrant.**

Therefore, the equation of the parabola = x^{2} = 4ay, whereas (6, 4) should satisfy the equation

So,

6^{2} = 4a (4)

36 = 16 a

a = \(\frac{36}{16}\)

a = \(\frac{9}{4}\)

**The parabola’s equation is:**

x^{2} = 4(\(\frac{9}{4}\))y

**x**^{2}** = 9 y**
