Tangent to the Hyperbola

In conic section geometry, a straight line is known as tangent to a hyperbola it this straight line meet the hyperbola at precisely one is known as tangent to a hyperbola, it is shown by the following diagram.


When straight line cuts the hyperbola from two distinct points it is called as the secant line and the third case is that a given straight line neither touches nor cuts the hyperbola. The details will be discussed on tangent line and secant line to the hyperbola in the later lectures.
