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.
