Hyperbola Calculator


How does the Hyperbola Calculator work?

Given a hyperbola equation, this calculates:
* Equation of the asymptotes
* Intercepts
* Foci (focus) points
* Eccentricity ε
* Latus Rectum
* semi-latus rectum
This calculator has 1 input.

What 2 formulas are used for the Hyperbola Calculator?

  1. standard form of a hyperbola that opens sideways is (x - h)2 / a2 - (y - k)2 / b2 = 1
  2. standard form of a hyperbola that opens up and down, it is (y - k)2 / a2 - (x - h)2 / b2 = 1

What 4 concepts are covered in the Hyperbola Calculator?

a line that continually approaches a given curve but does not meet it at any finite distance
special points with reference to which any of a variety of curves is constructed
conic section defined as the locus of all points in the plane the difference of whose distances and from two fixed points

Example calculations for the Hyperbola Calculator

  1. x^2/81 - y^2/36 = 1
  2. y^2/100 - x^2/49 = 1
