a regular oval shape, traced by a point moving in a plane so that the sum of its distances from two other points (the foci) is constant, or resulting when a cone is cut by an …oblique plane that does not intersect the base. (MORE)

A real-life example of an ellipse is the path that some heavenly bodies travel in space. Earth's path around the sun is elliptical. Informally, a flattened circle. You can rea…d the Wikipedia article for a more formal definition, as well as to investigate its different properties. (MORE)

Ellipses are a scientific word for the shape of an oval. for example the planets orbits are ellipses.

Answered

There are several approximations, but easiest (I think) is shown below: P=pi{3(a+b) - square root of: [(3a+b)(a+3b)]} Where a=major axis (long diameter) … and b= minor axis (smaller one) (MORE)

It isn't possible to give a generalised formula for the circumference of an ellipse in terms of elementary functions.

Answered

If R is the horizontal radius and S is the vertical radius, the Cartesian formula for an ellipse is: f(x) = plusminus (S/R)(sqrt(R2-x2))

Answered

No. A function is a "graph" the survives the "vertical line test". Namely, it is for every x in its domain, there can be one and only one f(x) in its co-domain. An ellipse cle…arly fails it at everywhere except it's two vertex. But an ellipse can be thought as two separate functions. A standard ellipse relation, x^2 / a + (y)^2 / b = 1, can be thought as two separate real functions of y1 and y2. where y1 = -y2 exactly. (MORE)

ellipsity is the name of a NYC tech startup, combining the grammatical ellipsis (meaning the omission of superfluous words) with the common english suffix -ity (the qualit…y of) because they want to bring back into the world what traditional advertising has omitted and overlooked. Things formerly believed to be superfluous to advertising like caring about consumers, smaller cos, society, non-profits are not superfluous and are instead the very foci of ellipsity. It may also be a misspelling of ellipticity. (MORE)

Fix two pins, through a sheet of paper, into a board. Take a string and make a loop that is large enough to go around the two pins with some slack. Put a pencil inside the loo…p formed by the string and pull the pencil out as far as it will go. When moved round the pins, with the string tight, the pencil will enable you to mark out an ellipse.
