Problem 19

Find the equation of the circles passing through \((-4,3)\) and touching the lines \(x+y=2\) and \(x-y=2\)

Expert verified

The equations of the circles are \((x-3)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 2^2\) and \((x+1)^2 + (y-1)^2 = 2^2\).

Chapter 1

An isosceles right angled triangle, whose sides are \(1,1, \sqrt{2}\) lies entirely in the first quadrant with the ends of the hypotenuse on the co- ordinate axes. If it slides, prove that the locus of its centroid is $$ (3 x-y)^{2}+(x-3 y)^{2}=\frac{32}{9} $$

Chapter 1

A ray of light incident at the point \((3,1)\) gets reflected from the tangent at \((0,1)\) to the cirde \(x^{2}+y^{2}=1\). The reflected ray touches the circle. The equation of the line along which the incident ray moves is: (a) \(3 x+4 y-13=0\) (b) \(4 x-3 y-13=0\) (c) \(3 x-4 y+13=0\) (d) \(4 x-3 y-10=0\)

Chapter 1

The maximum number of points with rational co-ordinates on a circle whose centre is \((\sqrt{3}, 0)\) is: (a) one (b) two (c) four (d) infinite

Chapter 1

Show that the square of the distance berween the two points $\left(x_{1}, y_{1}\right)\( and \)\left(x_{2}, y_{2}\right)$ on the circle \(x^{2}+y^{2}=a^{2}\) is equal to \(2\left(a^{2}-x_{1} x_{2}-y_{1} y_{2}\right)\)

Chapter 1

Prove that the general equation of circles cutting the circles $x^{2}+y^{2}+2 g x+2 f y+c_{i}=0 ; i=1,2$ orthogonally is $$ \left|\begin{array}{lll} x^{2}+y^{2} & -x & -y \\ c_{1} & g_{1} & f_{1} \\ c_{2} & g_{2} & f_{2} \end{array}\right|+k\left|\begin{array}{ccc} -x & -y & 1 \\ g_{1} & f_{1} & 1 \\ g_{2} & f_{2} & 1 \end{array}\right|=0 $$
