Hi, i tried to derivate the equation of the ellipse and i managed to do so.
Then i tried the same with the Hyperbola. Though the equations are almost the same i didnt manage to derivate it.
Look at this material:http://leto.vxu.se/msi/utb/exarb/2000/0072.pdf
Its on Swedish though but the math is the same
Page 7 for the ellips and page 13 for the Hyperbola.
On page 13 they derivate the Hyperbola but for me it seems that the equation isnt correct. I dont see how they exactly get from the third to fourth row.
Can anyone show me so i understand?
That second line's wrong. It should start
