Ex 11.3, 16 Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given conditions: Length of minor axis 16, foci (0, 6) We need to find equation of ellipse Whose length of minor axis = 16 & foci = (0, 6) Since foci is of the type (0, c) The major axis is along the y-axis. & required equation of ellipse is + = 1 From (1) & (2) c = 6 Given length of major axis = 16 & we know that Length of manor axis = 2b 16 = 2b 2b = 16 b = 16 2 b = 8 Also, We know that c2 = a2 b2 (6) 2 = a 2 (8)2 (6) 2 + (8)2 = a 2 36 + 64 = a 2 100 = a2 a2 = 100 Equation of ellipse is 2 2 + 2 2 = 1 Putting values 2 (8) 2 + 2 100 = 1 + = 1 Which is required equation
