For some practical applications, it is important to re-arrange the standard form so that the focal-point can be placed at the origin. The mathematical formulation for a general conic section is then given in the polar form by

and in the Cartesian form by

sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}} = left(l+e xright) \
Rightarrowleft(frac{x-frac{le}{1-e^{2}}}{frac{l}{1-e^{2}}}right)^{2}+frac{left(1-e^{2}right)y^{2}}{l^{2}} = 1

From the above equation, the linear eccentricity (c) is given by .

From the general equations given above, different conic sections can be represented as shown below:

  • Circle:
  • Ellipse:
  • Parabola:
  • Hyperbola:

Famous quotes containing the words form and/or modified:

    Racism? But isn’t it only a form of misanthropy?
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    Poetry presents indivisible wholes of human consciousness, modified and ordered by the stringent requirements of form. Prose, aiming at a definite and concrete goal, generally suppresses everything inessential to its purpose; poetry, existing only to exhibit itself as an aesthetic object, aims only at completeness and perfection of form.
