### How do you find the major axis in an ellipse?

The major axis is the line that joins the two foci (focuses) of the ellipse. If all you have is a picture of an ellipse and you don't know where the foci are, you can still find the major axis in a few seconds: It's the longest possible line that you can draw completely inside the ellipse, and it's the line straight across the ellipse between the two opposite "points of the egg".

### What are some famous natural landmarks?

Most countries will call some natural formation of sorts a 'landmark'The natural stone bridge and the Grand Canyon are just two of many in the US. Around the world you have Victoria Falls in Africa, The Andies in South America and Mt Fuji in Japan. As stated these are only a few of the natural 'landmarks' that exsist around the world.

### What are the characteristics of an ellipse?

Here's one way to think about an elllipse: -- Mark two black dots on a piece of paper, or stick two nails into a piece of wood. -- Mark a dot anywhere else on the paper, just not on the line between the first two. -- Measure the distance of the new dot from the first one, and from the second one, then add those two distances. -- If you draw another dot at every…

### Is an ellipse a function?

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 clearly 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…

### How do you find the surface area of an ellipse?

An ellipse is a two dimensional shape, so it does not have a "surface area", only an "area". Any ellipse has two radii, the major one and the minor one. We'll call them R1 and R2. The area of the ellipse then can be calculated with the function: a = πR1R2 You will notice that this is the same equation as the area for a circle. The circle is a special case though, because it…
