We have previously seen how a hyperbola is defined in terms of parametric equations.

In this section we will look at further aspects of hyperbola:

• The Cartesian equation of a hyperbola.
• The hyperbola as a locus.
• The effect of the parameter $c$ on a hyperbola.
• Tangents and normals of a hyperbola.
