 # What Are the Very Basic Points Which the Kids Should Know About the Concept of Eccentricity?

Eccentricity is considered to be the conic section that will uniquely describe a different kind of characteristics of the shape where it will be possessing a non-Negative real number. In very general terms eccentricity is considered to be the measure of how much the deviation of the curve will be occurring from the circularity of the given shape in the whole process. The section which has been obtained after the intersection of the plane with the cone is known as the conic section in the whole process. People will be getting different kinds of conic sections depending upon the position of the intersection of the plane concerning the angle made by the vertical axis of the cone and in terms of very fixed point it will be known as the focus and the fix the line will be known as the directrix in the world of eccentricity.

There are different types of conic sections like parabola, hyperbola, circle, ellipse and several other options which is the main reason that the people need to be clear about the basic differences between both of them so that there is no problem at any point of time. The eccentricity of the conic section can be defined as the distance from the points to the focus which will be divided by the perpendicular distance from that point to the nearest directrix. The eccentricity value will be constant for any kind of chronic in the whole process. For any kind of conic section, there will be a locus of the point in which the distance to the point in the line will be in the constant ratio in the whole process and it will be known as the eccentricity in the whole world of economics and mathematics.

The formula for finding out the eccentricity has been described as:

• Eccentricity is equal to C/A
• C here is the distance from the centre to the focus
• A here is the centre to the vertex distance in the whole process

The circle is defined as the set of points into the plane that will be equidistant from the fixed point into the plane surface known as the centre. The term radius will help in defining the distance from the centre and the point of the circle very easily. If the centre of the circle is at the origin it will be easy to derive the equation of the circle without any kind of problem. The equation of the circle will be derived with the help of given conditions very easily without any kind of problem.

## Following are some of the basic cases which the people need to be clear about:

1. In the cases of parabola, the eccentricity will always be equal to 1 because parabola is defined as a set of points in which distance from the fixed point into the plane will be equal to the distance from the directrix into the plane.
2. In the case of the ellipse, the eccentricity will always be less than one and it can be defined as a set of points into the plane in which some of the distances from two fixed points will be constant.
3. The hyperbola is defined as a set of points in the plane where the difference of distances from two fixed points will be constant. The distance from the fixed point into the plane will bear the most in ratio and the eccentricity will always be greater than one.

Hence, being clear about all the above-mentioned categories and points is very much vital in the whole process so that overall goals are easily achieved. Apart from this kids also need to register themselves on platforms like Cuemath so that they have a good command over the concept of hyperbola without any kind of problem which will help in scoring well without any issue.
