So I've been wondering for a long time: How are conics studied in Calculus and Analytic Geometry? Also, how are they applied in real-life situations, whether it's something as simple as construction, or something as complex as physics and engineering.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ever since I studied conics in my Intermediate Algebra class, I've been very curious about them.
