# Find the equation

Answer :

It is given that ay2 = x3

Now, differentiating both sides with respect to x, we get  Then, the slope of the tangent to the given curve at (am2, am3) is Then, slope of normal at (am2, am3)

= Therefore, equation of the normal at (am2, am3) is given by:

y - am3 = 3my – 3am4 = -2x + 2am2

2x + 3my – am2(2 + 3m2) = 0

Therefore, equation of the normal at (am2, am3) is 2x + 3my – am2(2 + 3m2) = 0
