Hyperbola - Distance
This is a graph of a hyperbola. a and b represent the distance between the foci to a point on the right half of the hyperbola. d and e represent the distance between the foci to a point on the left half of the hyperbola. A and B are the foci of the hyperbola. 1. Drag the points on the hyperbola. Does the difference between the two segments remain constant? 2. Drag points A and B to adjust the hyperbola. is the difference between the segments the same? Does it still remain constant no matter the point on the hyperbola?
