# Find the conditio

Given: two curves 2x = y2 and 2xy = k

To find: the condition that these two curves intersect orthogonally

Explanation: Given 2xy = k Substituting this value of y in another curve equation i.e., 2x = y2, we get   Taking cube root on both sides, we get Substituting equation (ii) in equation (i), we get    Hence the point of intersection of the two cures is Now given 2x = y2

Differentiating this with respect to x, we get   Now finding the above differentiation value at the point of intersection i.e., at , we get Also given 2xy = k

Differentiating this with respect to x, we get  Now applying the product rule of differentiation, we get    Now finding the above differentiation value at the point of intersection i.e., at , we get   But the two curves intersect orthogonally, if

m1.m2 = -1

Now substituting the values from equation (iii) and equation (iv), we get      Taking cube on both sides we get k2 = 23 = 8

k = 2√2

Hence this is the condition for the given two curves to intersect orthogonally.
