Q:

PLEASE HELP, 40 points, absurd answers will be reported, good answers will get brainliest8.03b(PART 1)Find at least three examples of conic sections in the real world (marketing, architecture, nature, etc.). Make sure your collage demonstrates at least two of the conic categories you have learned. You may use circles, ellipses, parabolas, or hyperbolas. Arrange your images on paper or in a document.(PART 2)Respond to each of the following prompts in a word processing document.Write a brief description about one of the conics from your collage.Write the equation that represents your conic in its standard form. To do this either find the measurements of your conic example to create the equation or guess the measurements of the conic.Your assignment must include:Your conics collage.A description about one conic from your collage.The standard form equation of one of the conics.An explanation of how the equation for the conic was found.

Accepted Solution

A:
Part 1) There are a lot of examples. The Colliseum in Rome is an example of an ellipse in architecture. Tires of cars are in a very good approximation a circle.  The Arch of triumph is an example of a parabola in the real world, as are many bridges, such as the golden gate bridge.
Part 2) The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension Bridge spanning the Golden Gate, a short strait in San Francisco. It is one of the wonders of the Modern World and it was opened in 1937. It cost around 500 million dollars in today's currency and it is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world and from land to land the distance is 1280 m. The height of the suspensions is 230 m.
Part 3) We can think of a parabola of the form y=ax^2 where we need to substitute the values to find a.
