What is the locus of a straight line?
In this regard, what is the locus of a line?
In geometry, a locus (plural: loci) (Latin word for "place", "location") is a set of all points (commonly, a line, a line segment, a curve or a surface), whose location satisfies or is determined by one or more specified conditions.
One may also ask, how do you find the locus of a circle? In algebraic terms, a circle is the set (or "locus") of points (x, y) at some fixed distance r from some fixed point (h, k). The value of r is called the "radius" of the circle, and the point (h, k) is called the "center" of the circle. (h, k) = (0, 0), then the equation simplifies to x2 + y2 = r2.
Beside this, what is the formula of locus?
The required equation to the locus under the given conditions is x2 + y2 = 16. Last one. In this one, we were to find out the locus of a point such that it is equidistant from two fixed points, which was the perpendicular bisector of the line joining the points.
What is locus of the point?
A locus is the set of all points (usually forming a curve or surface) satisfying some condition. For example, the locus of points in the plane equidistant from a given point is a circle, and the set of points in three-space equidistant from a given point is a sphere.
