# Conic Sections Assignments/DPPs

Conic sections, a captivating intersection of geometry and algebra, form a crucial chapter in Class 11 mathematics and the JEE syllabus. Understanding these fascinating shapes, formed by slicing a cone with a plane, equips you with valuable problem-solving skills applicable across diverse areas.

## Overview of Conic Sections Class 11

The Four Types of Conic Sections:

1. Circle: Defined by a constant distance (radius) from a fixed point (center).
• Formula: x^2 + y^2 = r^2 (where r is the radius)
2. Ellipse: An elongated circle with two focal points and a constant sum of distances from each point to any point on the ellipse.
• Formula: (x^2/a^2) + (y^2/b^2) = 1 (where a and b are the semi-major and semi-minor axes, respectively)
3. Parabola: An open curve with one focal point and a directrix. The distance from any point on the parabola to the focus is equal to its perpendicular distance from the directrix.
• Standard Form: y^2 = 4ax (where a is a constant)
4. Hyperbola: An open curve with two focal points and two branches. The absolute value of the difference of distances from any point on the hyperbola to the foci remains constant.
• Standard Form: (x^2/a^2) – (y^2/b^2) = 1 (where a and b are the semi-transverse and semi-conjugate axes, respectively)

Conic Sections in the JEE:

The JEE assesses your understanding of conic sections through various question types, including:

• Identifying the type of conic section from its equation or graphical representation.
• Finding the equation of a conic section given specific conditions like focal points, directrix, or center.
• Solving application-based problems involving properties of conic sections, such as finding tangents, normals, and areas.
