hyperbolic formula
Posted:
Jul 27, 2009 2:17 AM


Hi, I've tried to derive a formula for a hyperbola that gives me a and b or y as a function of x with known p (shape factor = 1e^2) and r (central radius). for an ellipse it's a=r/p and b = r/sqrt(p) Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance!
