The line segment connecting two points and can be expressed in parametric equations as
where corresponds to the point . What is the value of ?
Let be the area of the region bounded by the curve defined by the parametric equations where . What is the value of ?
If is the intersection point of the positive part of the -axis and the curve defined by the parametric equations what is the value of .
What is the polar equation of this graph?
Two clowns, Twinkle and Jingle, are throwing pies at each other. Twinkle throws a pie toward Jingle from centimeters away. Its flight path is given by parametric equations where is time in seconds.
Two seconds later Jingle launches an interceptor pie from his location with the flight path Find the value of which will guarantee that the interceptor pie will hit its target (the pie thrown by Twinkle).
