Equation of Straight Line (Part 1) -

Equation of Straight Line

(b) Point-Slope form

Let the equation of give line l with slope ‘m’ is 

y = mx + c    …..(i) 

(x1,y1) lies on the line i

y1= mx1+c   ……(ii)

From (i) and (ii) [(ii) - (i)]

y - y= m( x - x1)

The equation of a straight line whose slope is given as ‘m’ and passes through the point (x1,y1) is  .





\begin{array}{c}{2 y y^{\prime}+y^{\prime}-6 x=0} \\ {y^{\prime}=\frac{6 x}{2 y+1}} \\ {\frac{-1}{y^{\prime}}=\frac{-(2 y+1)}{6 x}}(\text{slope of the normal})\end{array}

Equation of the normal y-y_{1}=\frac{-\left(2 y_{1}+1\right)}{6 x_{1}}\left(x-x_{1}\right)

Normal intersect at (0,3/2)

\\\frac{3}{2}-y_{1}=\frac{-\left(2 y_{1}+1\right)}{6 x_{1}}\left(0-x_{1}\right)\\ 8y_1-8=0\\ y_1=1\\ x_1=\pm2\\ |m|=4
