Purpose of finding the area of a parabola?

If you needed to calculate say, the volume of a gutter, it would be the AREA of the cross-section (parabola) multiplied by the length of the gutter.


How does finding the vertex of a parabola help you when graphing a quadratic equation?

Finding the vertex of the parabola is important because it tells you where the bottom (or the top, for a parabola that 'opens' downward), and thus where you can begin graphing.


What is the area of the inside of a parabola?

Since a parabola is an open infinite curve, the area inside it is infinite.


How do you calculate surface area of a parabola?

A parabola is a two dimensional open curve. Its area is therefore infinite.


Where is the point on the parabola for the maximum area?

at the top


What are the roots of a parabola?

I think you are talking about the x-intercepts. You can find the zeros of the equation of the parabola y=ax2 +bx+c by setting y equal to 0 and finding the corresponding x values. These will be the "roots" of the parabola.


What are everyday uses for pi?

Some of many examples are:- Finding the circumference of a circle Finding the area of a circle Finding the surface area of a sphere Finding the volume of a sphere Finding the surface area of a cylinder Finding the volume of a cylinder Finding the volume of a cone Finding the surface area of a cone


Is the area of a circle a linear or nonlinear of its radius?

Relationship between radius and area of a circle is nonlinear. Area = pi * radius^2, so it is like a quadratic. If you graphed radius on the horizontal, and area on the vertical, it would be a parabola (actually a half of a parabola, since you cannot have a negative radius).


How do you find centroid of parabola?

The centroid of a parabola is found with the equation y = h/b^2 * x^2, where the line y = h. Additionally, the area is 4bh/3.


Finding the area?

finding the area is when you times the sides by each other xx


Is the formula for finding the area of an oval the same as the formula for finding the area of a circle?

No because the formula for finding the area of an oval, which is an ellipse, is quite different

What is pi used for in geometry?

Some of the many applications that pi is used in geometry are as follows:- Finding the area of a circle Finding the circumference of a circle Finding the volume of a sphere Finding the surface area of a sphere Finding the surface area and volume of a cylinder Finding the volume of a cone


Is a parabola the same as a parabolic curve?

No. If you tilt a parabola, you will still have a parabolic curve but it will no longer be a parabola.


Parabola is the point at which the parabola is at its lowest or highest point?

A parabola is NOT a point, it is the whole curve.


How would finding the area of a square be the as finding the area of a rectangle?

Squares are rectangles so the formula for area will stay the same.


The maximum or minimum of a parabola depending on whether the parabola opens up or down?

A parabola opening up has a minimum, while a parabola opening down has a maximum.


What is the difference between finding the perimeter of a polygon and finding the area of a polygon?

Finding the perimeter of a polygon is finding how far it is in total along all the edges of the polygon; whereas finding the area of a polygon is finding how much space the polygon covers. The perimeter of a polygon forms the boundary around the area of the polygon.


What is the diameter of a parabola?

It is the bisector of any 2 parallel chords drawn to the parabola. It is always parallel to the axis of the parabola.


How is finding volume different from finding area?

its different because a volume is how much and area is the whole thing


What is the formula for finding the area of an ellipse?

the formula for finding the area of an ellipse is add it then multiply and subtract that is the final


What is the name of the point you use to define a parabola?

All of the points on a parabola define a parabola. However, the vertex is the point in which the y value is only used for one point on the parabola.


What is the midpoint of the parabola between the focus and the directrix?

It is the apex of the parabola.


Finding the area of a circle?
