Find the shortest distance between the circle x2 + y2 – 24y + 128 = 0 and the parabola y2 = 4x.
None of these
We know that shortest distance between two curve occurs along the common normal. Any normal to parabola will be of from
y + tx – 2t – t3 = 3. If it is common normal, of circle and parabola, it will passes through the center of the circle.
12 = 2t + t3
(t – 2)(t2 + 2t + 6) = 0
t = 2
So point on parabola is (4, 4) distance of this point to center of a circle will be , hence shortest distance is
