Tangent to the Parabola

In plane geometry, a straight line is called the tangent to the parabola. If this line meets the parabola at precisely one, it is known as the tangent to the parabola, which is presented in the given diagram.

A line which cuts the parabola from two distinct points is known as the secant line, and the third scenario is that a line neither touches nor cuts the parabola.In the next few tutorials we shall discussĀ tangent line and secant line.
