Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

The asymptotes of a curve are straight lines such that, as one of the curve's coordinates becomes infinitely large, the curve comes infinitesimally close to the line without ever reaching it.
A hyperbola has two asymptotes which intersect at its centre of symmetry. These divide the coordinate plane into four segments and the two arms of the hyperbola are contained within diagonally opposite segments.
An asymptote of a curve is a line where the distance of the curve and line approach zero as they tend to infinity (they get closer and closer without ever meeting)
If one zooms out of a hyperbola, the straight lines are usually asymptotes as they get closer and closer to a specific point, yet do not reach that point.

What is an asymptote?

Answer . An asymptote is a line or curve that approaches a given curve arbitrarily closely..

How do you explain the relationship between a country and a state?

The words country and nation are often interchangeable. A nation is a sovereign or independent state. Think of Louis XIV's famous statement: "I am the state". He was proclaiming that his royal person symbolically defined the sovereign state of France. The US started out essentially as 13 independent (MORE)

What is a hyperbola?

In mathematics a hyperbola is a curve, specifically a smooth curve that lies in a plane, which can be defined either by its geometric properties or by the kinds of equations for which it is the solution set. A hyperbola has two pieces, called connected components or branches, which are mirror imag (MORE)

Explain the relationship between frequency and pitch?

They are the exactly the same. . ' . "Pitch" is used more in music but they are synonyms, andmeasured in Hertz (Hz) - used to be in cycles per second (c/s)until the ISO changed many compound units to scientists' names.

Define the asymptote of rectangular hyperbola?

An asymptote is a line that a curve approaches, getting closer and closer, but does not cross. Some definitions state that the curve may cross, but may not cross an infinite number of times. In the case of a rectangular hyperbole, the asymptotes are parallel or equal to the X and Y axes.

What are the followings-hyberbola-asymptotes of hyperbola-centre of hyperbola-conjugated diameter of hyperbola-diameter of hyperbola-directrices of hyperbola-eccentricity of hyperbola?

Asymptotes are the guidelines that a hyperbola follows. They forman X and the hyperbola always gets closer to them but never touchesthem. If the transverse axis of your hyperbola is horizontal, theslopes of your asymptotes are + or - b/a. If the transverse axis isvertical, the slopes are + or - a/b. (MORE)

Explain the relationship between molecules and compounds?

A compound is a molecule with two ore more elements. So O 2 is a molecule because it contains two atoms but because both are the same (oxygen) element it is not a compound. On the other hand CO 2 is a molecule because it contains 3 atoms and because ther are two elements (oxygen and carbon) it is (MORE)

Explain in your own words the different Asymptotic functions and notations.?

We often want to know a quantity only approximately and not necessarily exactly, just to compare with another quantity. And, in many situations, correct comparison may be possible even with approximate values of the quantities. The advantage of the possibility of correct comparisons through even app (MORE)

Explain the relationship between electronegativity and polarity?

Take water as an example. H2O Oxygen is much more electronegative than hydrogen ( 3.44 to 2.2 ) so the electrons of the two hydrogens in water spend more time in the orbital of oxygen then in the orbitals of the hydrogens; closer, if you will. So, this gives the oxygen end of the molecule a sight (MORE)

Explain the relationship between polypeptides and proteins?

Amino acids and polypeptides are the building blocks of protein. Amino acids are the basic unit of proteins. Amino acids linked together by a peptide bond forms a chain of amino acids called a polypeptide. When the amino acids from different parts of the chain interact with each other and form hydr (MORE)

Explain the relationship between interactions and interdependence?

An interaction is a reaction (chemical or physical), between two organisms or cells, or chemicals. Interdependence, occurs where 2 organism require the inherent product or physical feature of the other. (it is a necessary relationship. (an example of this is a symbiotic relationship between 2 or m (MORE)

Explain the relationship between industrialization and imperialism?

Industrial revolution is a movement of men and animal power to steam and water power. It can be also defined as movement of domestic system to factory system. The innovation of new machines increased the production of the products just as the demand of the product. In order to fulfilled these needs, (MORE)

Define Organizational Behavior and explain the relationship of Organizational behavior with other disciplines?

Explain the relationship between algae and coral?

Many corals (usually called zooxanthellate corals) contain an algae called zooxanthellae. The zooxanthellae are called symbionts, as they live inside the coral and provide a service. The zooxanthellae produce sugar that feeds the coral animal, and the coral provides nitrogen and physical safety to (MORE)

Explain the relationship between the environment and genes?

Genes are regulated through a number of ways. Some can be regulated by the environment you're in. For example, if you're in the sun a lot, genes will get turned on or up to increase the production of skin pigmentation so you get tanned. When you stay out of the sun, the genes turn off and your skin (MORE)

Explain the relationship between alienation and reconciliation?

Alienation occurs when someone turns his or her back on you and refuses to have a relationship with you or simply abandons you for reasons not known to you. Reconciliation occurs when two individuals reconnect their relationship and resolve the problem that separated them in the first place. Such (MORE)

Could you explain the relationship between diet and death?

Your diet has a direct affect on your health. People who eat their serving of fruits and vegetables, whole grain, poultry and so on reduce their chances of death by cancer or cardiovascular disease. Eating healthy also reduces the chances of diabetes and many other health problems.

What are four similarities between hyperbolas and ellipses?

both are conic sections ( the intersection of a cone by a plane) . both have two directrices . both have two foci . the ellipse is the locus of points so that sum of the distances to the foci is constant/the hyperbola is the locus of points so that difference of the distances to the foci (MORE)

Explain interdependent relationships between resources technology and institutions?

Here is the example- suppose you have petrol(natural resource or nature). Then you have a car that runs on petrol and the technology of petrolem refineries(technology).

What is the major difference between an eclipse and a hyperbola?

The difference, major or not, is that an eclipse and a hyperbola are not related, at all. You might have meant to say "Ellipse". In that case, an ellipse is a closed line shape of which the left and right bouts are symmetrical and the top and bottom bouts are also symmetrical. A hyperbola can never (MORE)
