IIT-JEE 1994

Subjective
Through the vertex $$O$$ of parabola $${y^2} = 4x$$, chords $$OP$$ and $$OQ$$ are drawn at right angles to one another . Show that for all positions of $$P$$, $$PQ$$ cuts the axis of the parabola at a fixed point. Also find the locus of the middle point of $$PQ$$.

Answer

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

IIT-JEE 1991

Subjective
Three normals are drawn from the point $$(c, 0)$$ to the curve $${y^2} = x.$$ Show that $$c$$ must be greater than $$1/2$$. One normal is always the $$x$$-axis. Find $$c$$ for which the other two normals are perpendicular to each other.

Answer

$$c = {3 \over 4}$$

IIT-JEE 1982

Subjective
$$A$$ is point on the parabola $${y^2} = 4ax$$. The normal at $$A$$ cuts the parabola again at point $$B$$. If $$AB$$ subtends a right angle at the vertex of the parabola. Find the slope of $$AB$$.

Answer

$$m = \pm \sqrt 2 $$
