MA 15400 Lesson 28 Section 11.2 Ellipses 2 F The arch of a bridge is semi elliptical, with major axis horizontal. The base of the arch is 40 feet across and the highest part of the arch is 10 feet above the horizontal roadway. a) Find an equation for the arch. b) Find the height of the arch 8 feet from the center of the base. Ellipses can be very ‘round’ (almost circular) or almost ‘flat’ . Eccentricity is a number that describes the ‘roundness’ of an ellipse. 0 1
