Rapidsol Analytical Geometry ( G.N.D.U)


The present book provides a comprehensive treatment of the concepts and topics by giving a vast variety of examples fully solved. The entire subject matter has been arranged in a systematic, graded, simple, lucid and exhaustive manner. Each chapter begins with some definitions followed by theorems with complete proofs and solved problems. A large number of notes and remarks have been added for a better understanding of the subject.

Tangents and normal, Pole and polar, pair of tangents at a point, Chord of contact, equation of the chord in terms of mid point and diameter of conic.

Ellipse and hyperbola with their properties. Tangents and normal, Pole and polar. Pair of tangents at a point. Chord of contact, Identifications of curves represented by second degree equation (including pair of lines). Intersection of three planes, Condition for three planes to intersect in a point or along a line or to form a prism. Change of axes, Shift of origin, rotation of axes.
