Special Hyperboloid of 2 Sheets as a Locus
- Tim Brzezinski
The following applet illustrates a hyperboloid of 2 sheets. The equation of this particular hyperbola is . Note: This applet will only work if the blue point is on the sheet containing V_2. V_1, V_2 = vertices F_1, F_2 = foci How does the action you see here compare with the action seen here? To explore in Augmented Reality, see the directions below this applet.
