Find the eq

Answer :

Given that we need to find the equation of the parabola whose vertex is at origin and axis along the x - axis and also passing through (2, 3).



We know that the standard equation of the parabola whose axis is x - axis and vertex at origin is y2 = 4ax.


Substituting (2, 3) in the equation of parabola.


(3)2 = 4a(2)


9 = 8a



Now,




2y2 = 9x.


The equation of the parabola is 2y2 = 9x.
