Circles, Ellipses, Parabolas, Hyperbolas
This can be confusing, so lets look and some examples and learn using logos from some NFL teams.
A circle is a curve in which each point is equal-distant from the center.
An ellipse is a oval or squished circle. each point is equal distant from 2 focal points.
A Parabola is a curve that is shaped like a U
2 parabolic curves that are mirrors of eachother
I hope these examples helped you learn about the differences between the different conic sections and how you can find them even in places you would have never suspected.
