#### Parametric equation

## What is the parametric equation of ellipse?

The parametric form for an ellipse is begin{align*}F(t)=(x(t),y(t))end{align*} where begin{align*}x(t)=a cos(t)+hend{align*} and begin{align*}y(t) = b sin(t) + kend{align*}.

## Why parametric equations are used?

Parametric equations are commonly used to express the coordinates of the points that make up a geometric object such as a curve or surface, in which case the equations are collectively called a parametric representation or parameterization (alternatively spelled as parametrisation) of the object.

## What is a vector parametric equation?

Each value of the parameter t determines a unique point P, with position vector r = r_{} + tv, on the line l. As t takes all possible values, P takes all possible positions on the line l.

## How are parametric equations used in real life?

For example, parametric equations allow you to make a graph that represents the position of a point on a Ferris wheel. All the details like height off the ground, direction, and speed of spin can be modeled using the parametric equations.

## What is T in parametric equations?

The variable t is called a parameter and the relations between x, y and t are called parametric equations. The set D is called the domain of f and g and it is the set of values t takes. Conversely, given a pair of parametric equations with parameter t, the set of points (f(t), g(t)) form a curve in the plane.

## What is Cartesian equation?

: an equation of a curve or surface in which the variables are the Cartesian coordinates of a point on the curve or surface.

## What is a parametric equation of a line?

Then, the parametric equation of a line, x = x_{} + at, y = y_{} + bt and z = z_{} + ct. represents coordinates of any point of the line expressed as the function of a variable parameter t which makes possible to determine any point of the line according to a given condition.

## What is the parametric equation of hyperbola?

The equations x = a sec θ, y = b tan θ taken together are called the parametric equations of the hyperbola x2a2 – y2b2 = 1; where θ is parameter (θ is called the eccentric angle of the point P).
