Answer :

The given equation is y^{2} = 10x

Here, the coefficient of x is positive.

Hence, the parabola open towards the right.

On comparing this equation with y^{2} = -4ax, we get,

4a = 10

⇒ a =

Thus,

Co-ordinates of the focus = (a,0) =

Since, the given equation involves y^{2}, the axis of the parabola is the x-axis.

Equation of directrix, x =-a, then,

x =

Length of latus rectum = 4a = 10
