IIT-JEE 2005

Subjective
Find the equation of the common tangent in $${1^{st}}$$ quadrant to the circle $${x^2} + {y^2} = 16$$ and the ellipse $${{{x^2}} \over {25}} + {{{y^2}} \over 4} = 1$$. Also find the length of the intercept of the tangent between the coordinate axes.

Answer

$$y = - {2 \over {\sqrt 3 }}x + 4\sqrt {{7 \over 3}} ,\,\,\,\,\,{{14} \over {\sqrt 3 }}$$

IIT-JEE 2005

Subjective
Tangents are drawn from any point on the hyperbola $${{{x^2}} \over 9} - {{{y^2}} \over 4} = 1$$ to the circle $${x^2} + {y^2} = 9$$.Find the locus of mid-point of the chord of contact.

Answer

$${{{x^2}} \over 9} - {{{y^2}} \over 4} = {\left( {{{{x^2} + {y^2}} \over 9}} \right)^2}$$

IIT-JEE 2004

Subjective
Tangent is drawn to parabola $${y^2} - 2y - 4x + 5 = 0$$ at a point $$P$$ which cuts the directrix at the point $$Q$$. $$A$$ point $$R$$ is such that it divides $$QP$$ externally in the ratio $$1/2:1$$. Find the locus of point $$R$$

Answer

$$\left( {x - 1} \right){\left( {y - 1} \right)^2} + 4 = 0$$

IIT-JEE 2003

Subjective
Normals are drawn from the point $$P$$ with slopes $${m_1}$$, $${m_2}$$, $${m_3}$$ to the parabola $${y^2} = 4x$$. If locus of $$P$$ with $${m_1}$$ $${m_2}$$$$ = \alpha $$ is a part of the parabola itself then find $$\alpha $$.

Answer

$$a=2$$
