The area of a parabolic segment

Definition:

A parabolic segment is a surface bounded by the parabola cavity and the segment that intersects perpendicularly to its axis.

The area of a parabolic segment is two-thirds of the product of the height of the parabolic segment and the length of the secan segment.

Computing relationship:

where:

h — the height of parabolic segment;

l — the length of a secant segment.

Calculator: the area of a parabolic segment


For separation of number integers and decimals, use the symbol – point [.]

the height of parabolic segment — h

the length of a secant segment — l

 


the area of a parabolic segment =
