ConceptStandard Equations of Parabola

Question

Find the coordinates of the focus, axis of the parabola, the equation of directrix and the length of the latus rectum for x2 = 6y

Solution

The given equation is x2 = 6y.

Here, the coefficient of is positive. Hence, the parabola opens upwards.

On comparing this equation with x2 = 4ay, we obtain

Length of latus rectum = 4a = 6

Is there an error in this question or solution?
