Q: Finding area of a parabola?

Write your answer...

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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).

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 is when you times the sides by each other xx

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

A parabola has no endpoints: it extends to infinity.A parabola has no endpoints: it extends to infinity.A parabola has no endpoints: it extends to infinity.A parabola has no endpoints: it extends to infinity.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

It is the apex of the parabola.

Area = Pi * Radius²

The line of symmetry located on a parabola is right down the center. A parabola is a U shape. Depending on the direction of the parabola it either has a x axis of symmetry or y axis of symmetry. You should have two equal sides of the parabola.
