The area of the rectangle formed by the perpendiculars from the centre of the ellipse to the tangent and normal at the point-whose eccentric angle is , is  


Correct option is



So, the equation of the tangent at this point is


 p1 = Length of the perpendicular form (0, 0) on line (i) 

Equation of the normal at  is  



∴  p2 = Length of the perpendicular form (0, 0) on line (ii)    



∴ Area of the rectangle   






An ellipse slides between two perpendicular straight lines. Then, the locus of its centre is a/an


The sum of the squares of the perpendicular on any tangent to the ellipse  from two points on the minor axis, each at a distance  from the centre is 


The eccentric angle of a point on the ellipse  whose distance from the centre of the ellipse is 2, is


If any tangent to the ellipse  intercepts equal length lon the axes, then =


The ellipse x2 + 4y2 = 4 is inscribed in a rectangle aligned with the coordinate axes, which in turn is inscribed in another ellipse that passes through the point (4, 0). Then, the equation of the ellipse is  


A focus of an ellipse is at the origin. The directrix is the line  x = 4 and the eccentricity is 1/2. Then the length of the semi-major axis, is  


In an ellipse, the distance between its foci is 6 and minor axis is 8. The eccentricity is 


The tangent at a point  meets the auxiliany circle in two points. The chord joining them subtends a right angle at the centre. Then, the eccentricity of the ellipse is given by  


If F1 and F2 be the feet of the perpendicular from the foci S1and S2 of an ellipse  on the tangent at any point P on the ellipse, then (S1F1)(S2F2) is equal to   


The slope of a common tangent to the ellipse  and aconcentric circle of radius r is
