Angle between y2 = x and x2 = y at the origin is

The slope of the tangent to the parabola x2 = y is given by
2x = dy / dx
(dy / dx)(x, y) = 0 = 0
θ = 90
The slope of the tangent to the parabola y2 = x is given by
2y (dy / dx) = 1
dy / dx = 1 / 2y
(dy / dx)x=0 = infinity
tan θ = infinity
θ = 90
The angle between y2 = x  and x2 = y at the origin is 90.
