Synopsis :

1. The gradient of the curve y = f(x) at P(x1, y1) is ⎜

⎛ dy ⎞ ⎟ . ⎝ dx ⎠ P ⎛ dy ⎞ ⎟ . ⎝ dx ⎠ P

2. The equation of the tangent at P(x1, y1) to the curve y = f(x) is y−y1 = m(x−x1) where m = ⎜ 3. The equation of the normal at P(x1, y1) to the curve y = f(x) is y−y1 = −

⎛ dy ⎞ ⎜ ⎟ . ⎝ dx ⎠ P

1 ( x − x1) where m = m

4. Let θ be the angle between two curves y = f(x), y = g(x) at their point of intersection P. i) The two curves are said to touch each other at P if θ = 0. ii) The two curves are said to cut orthogonally at P if θ = π/2. 5. Let m1, m2 be the gradients of two curves at their point of intersection P. If θ is the acute angle between the curves at P, then tanθ =

m1 − m2 . 1 + m1m2

6. Let m1, m2 be the gradients of two curves at their point of intersection P. Then i) The two curves touch each other at P ⇔ m1 = m2. ii) The two curves cut each other orthogonally ⇔ m1m2 = −1. 7. If two curves touch each other at a point P, then the two curves have a common tangent and common normal at P. 8. Let y = f(x) be a curve and P be a point on the curve. Let the tangent at P to the curve meet x-axis at T and the normal at P to the curve meet x-axis at N. Let Q be the projection of P on x-axis. Then (i) PT is called length of tangent (ii) PN is called length of normal (iii) QT is called subtangent (iv) QN is called subnormal of y = f(x) at P.

dy 9. Let P(x1, y1) be a point on the curve y = f(x) and let ⎛ ⎞ = m. Then ⎜ ⎟ ⎝ dx ⎠P

i) the length of the tangent to the curve at P is

y1 1 + m2 m

ii) the length of the normal to the curve at P is y1 1 + m2 . iii) the subtangent to the curve at P is |y1/m|. iv) the subnormal to the curve at P is |y1m|.

10. To any curve y = f(x), length of S.T. and ordinate, length of S.N. are in G.P., whose common ratio

is the slope of the tangent m.
