Question 5 The point on the curve y2 = x, where the tangent makes an angle of πœ‹/4 with x-axis is (A) (1/2, 1/4) (B) (1/4, 1/2) (C) (4, 2) (D) (1, 1) 𝑦^2=π‘₯ Slope of the tangent is π’…π’š/𝒅𝒙 Finding π’…π’š/𝒅𝒙 2y 𝑑𝑦/𝑑π‘₯=1 π’…π’š/𝒅𝒙=𝟏/πŸπ’š Since, the tangent makes an angle of πœ‹/4 with x-axis i.e., 𝜽=𝝅/πŸ’ ∴ Slope of tangent =𝒕𝒂𝒏 𝜽 =tanβ‘γ€–πœ‹/4γ€— =𝟏 Equating (1) and (2) 𝟏/πŸπ’š=𝟏 1=2𝑦 2𝑦=1 π’š=𝟏/𝟐 Since, we have to find point on the curve where the tangent makes an angle of πœ‹/4 with x-axis Finding 𝒙 by putting π’š=𝟏/𝟐 in equation of curve π’š^𝟐=𝒙 (𝟏/𝟐)^2=π‘₯ 1/4 =π‘₯ 𝒙=𝟏/πŸ’ ∴ Required point = (x, y) = (𝟏/πŸ’,𝟏/𝟐). So, the correct answer is (B)
