# Ellipse By Four Center Method

Dear reader, if you are searching for Ellipse By Four Center Method PDF but you didn’t find it anywhere so don’t worry you are on the right page. an ellipse is a plane curve surrounding two focal points. An ellipse has a simple algebraic solution for its surface area. Ellips is a form of a circle, where both foci are at the same point.
An ellipse is the set of all points on a plane whose distance from two fixed points F and G add up to a constant.

The area of Ellipse is π × a × b as shown in the given figure.

## Area

The area of an ellipse is:

π × a × b

where a is the length of the Semi-major Axis, and b is the length of the Semi-minor Axis.

Be careful: a and b are from the center outwards (not all the way across). (Note: for a circle, a and b are equal to the radius, and you get π × r × r = πr2, which is right!)

### Ellipse By Four Center Method PDF & Standard equation

The standard form of an ellipse in Cartesian coordinates assumes that the origin is the center of the ellipse, the x-axis is the major axis, and:

the foci are the points {\displaystyle F_{1}=(c,\,0),\ F_{2}=(-c,\,0)},
the vertices are {\displaystyle V_{1}=(a,\,0),\ V_{2}=(-a,\,0)}.

For an arbitrary point {\displaystyle (x,y)} the distance to the focus {\displaystyle (c,0)} is {\textstyle {\sqrt {(x-c)^{2}+y^{2}}}} and to the other focus {\textstyle {\sqrt {(x+c)^{2}+y^{2}}}}. Hence the point {\displaystyle (x,\,y)} is on the ellipse whenever:

{\displaystyle {\sqrt {(x-c)^{2}+y^{2}}}+{\sqrt {(x+c)^{2}+y^{2}}}=2a\ .}

Removing the radicals by suitable squarings and using {\displaystyle b^{2}=a^{2}-c^{2}} (see diagram) produces the standard equation of the ellipse:

{\displaystyle {\frac {x^{2}}{a^{2}}}+{\frac {y^{2}}{b^{2}}}=1,}

or, solved for y:

{\displaystyle y=\pm {\frac {b}{a}}{\sqrt {a^{2}-x^{2}}}=\pm {\sqrt {\left(a^{2}-x^{2}\right)\left(1-e^{2}\right)}}.}

The width and height parameters {\displaystyle a,\;b} are called the semi-major and semi-minor axes. The top and bottom points {\displaystyle V_{3}=(0,\,b),\;V_{4}=(0,\,-b)} are the co-vertices. The distances from a point {\displaystyle (x,\,y)} on the ellipse to the left and right foci are {\displaystyle a+ex} and {\displaystyle a-ex}.
