Locus Of Two Dimensions

A locus is a set of points that satisfy a given condition.

It is also the path of a moving object that satisfy a given condition.

Locus In Two Dimensional

Locus of a points that are constant distance from a fixed point. Example : Sketch a locus of point X that is always (constant) 3 cm from O.

Locus of X

O

3 cm

Locus In Two Dimensional

Locus of a point that are equidistant from two fixed points. Example : Two points X and Y are 6 cm apart. Construct the locus of point P equidistance from X and Y.

X

6 cm

Y

Locus P is the perpendicular bisector of line XY

Locus In Two Dimensional 

Locus of points that are at a constant distance from a

straight line. Example : Construct a locus of point T that is 2 cm from PQ.
Locus of T
