In celestial mechanics, true anomaly is an angular parameter that defines the position of a body moving along a Keplerian orbit. It is the angle between ... more

Relates the medians and the sides of an arbitrary triangle. Median of a triangle is a line segment joining a vertex to the midpoint of the opposing side. ... more

Right triangle or right-angled triangle is a triangle in which one angle is a right angle (that is, a 90-degree angle). Altitude of a triangle is a line ... more

In geometry, the major axis of an ellipse is the longest diameter: a line (line segment) that runs through the center and both foci, with ends at the ... more

A cone is an n-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a base (usually flat and circular) to a point called the apex or vertex. It is the ... more

The elliptic paraboloid is shaped like an oval cup and can have a maximum or minimum point. In a suitable coordinate system with three axes x, y, and z, it ... more

An apsis, plural apsidesis a point of greatest or least distance of a body in an elliptic orbit about a larger body. For a body orbiting the Sun the ... more

In astrodynamics an elliptic orbit is a Kepler orbit with the eccentricity less than 1; this includes the special case of a circular orbit, with ... more

Parabolas with axes of symmetry parallel to the y-axis have equations of the form y=ax^2+bx+c.

The x-coordinate and y-coordinate at the vertex can be
