# parabola definition

• noun:
• A plane curve created by the intersection of a right circular cone and a plane parallel to an element of the cone or because of the locus of points equidistant from a fixed range and a set point not on the range.
• The conic area created by the intersection of a cone with an airplane parallel to a tangent airplane into cone; the locus of things equidistant from a set point (the main focus) and line (the directrix).
• The explicit design of a parallel between two really dissimilar things, specially with a moral or didactic function. A parable.
• some sort of bend; one of many conic parts created because of the intersection of this surface of a cone with an airplane parallel to at least one of the edges. It's a curve, any point that is equally distant from a set point, labeled as the main focus, and a hard and fast straight-line, labeled as the directrix. See focus.
• One of several curves defined by the equation y = axn where letter is an optimistic entire number or an optimistic fraction. The cubical parabola letter = 3; when it comes to semicubical parabola n = 3/2. See under cubical, and semicubical. The parabolas have countless branches, but no rectilineal asymptotes.
• identical to parabole.
• A curve frequently defined as the intersection of a cone with a Plane parallel using its side.
• By expansion, any algebraical bend, or part of a curve, obtaining the line at infinity as a real tangent.
• a plane curve created because of the intersection of the right circular cone and a plane parallel to an element of the curve
