### Hyperbolas, Ellipses, and Parabolas

In mathematics, a conic section is the intersection of a plane and a cone. As the angle and the location of the intersection is changed we produce different curves such as circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas. The eccentricity is a parameter associated with every conic section. It can be thought of as a measure of … More Hyperbolas, Ellipses, and Parabolas
