# Hyperbola Calculator

5/5 - (1 vote)

The Hyperbola Calculator is a free tool made available online that displays the focus, eccentricity and asymptote for given input values in the hyperbola equation.

In traditional mathematics, a hyperbola is one of the types of conic sections, which is so formed by the intersection of a double cone and a plane.

In hyperbola context, a plane cuts both the halves of a double cone, but it does not necessarily pass through the apex of the cone. The other two conics are parabola and ellipse.

The equation of a hyperbola is given as:

(x2/a2) – (y2/b2) = 1

Here, the asymptote for the straight lines are:

y = (b/a)x and y = -(b/a)x

The procedure to use this calculator is as follows:

Step 1: First, enter the inputs, such as centre, a and b value in the respective input field given to you.

Step 2: Now, hit the button “Calculate” to get the values of a hyperbola.

Step 3: Finally, the focus, asymptote and eccentricity will be displayed in the output field or a separate tab.
