, then c = 5 and the hyperbola's foci are (–8, 2) and (2, 2).
Here is the sketch. y x 4. Find the equation of the line tangent to the ellipse
We are given a point:
And we need a slope. through the point . . .
So the equation is 5. Find the volume of the solid obtained by revolving the ellipse about the x-axis. Here is a sketch for reference. y x First note that we need revolve only the top half about the x-axis.
Revolving that little strip about the x-axis would sweep out a nearly disk-shaped solid. The volume thereby
