## FAQs on JEE Advanced Ellipse Important Questions

**1. What is an Ellipse in mathematics that is asked in JEE Advanced?**

An ellipse (plural ellipses) is a curve on a flat surface. It's like a circle but not exactly - it's more egg-shaped. The shape of an ellipse is often described as being similar to a stretched-out circle, and this is how we draw them in mathematics. An ellipse is a curve in the plane formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to an axis of the cone.

**2. What is the importance of Ellipse in Mathematics?**

Ellipse is a very important element in geometry. All mathematicians use an ellipse from time to time in their work. To describe the circular shape, mathematicians use an ellipse as a standard symbol. Ellipses are also important in many other fields, such as architecture, astronomy, food, and science, etc.

**3. What are the major types of ellipses?**

The two most common types of ellipses are the horizontal major axis ellipse and the vertical major axis ellipse.

These ellipses have names like these because they are shaped like ovals, with either a horizontal or vertical axis.

The horizontal major axis ellipse has the largest curve on its top edge and the smallest curve on its bottom edge. The vertical major axis ellipse has the largest curve on its bottom edge and the smallest curve on its top edge.

The horizontal major axis ellipse is called an oval because it looks like an egg in cross-section, but it is still called an ellipse because it is flattened at both ends. The vertical major axis ellipse looks like a circle in cross-section, but it is still called an ellipse because it is flattened at both ends.

**4. What are Vedantu's tips for memorizing all of the conic section formulas and properties for JEE Exams?**

We all know that there are a lot of methods to memorize the formulas and conic section properties. But what’s more important than methods, is the right motivation for you. So, here are some tips for you to memorize these formulas.

First of all, try to understand these formulas very well. Because if you understand them, you won't have any problem remembering. These formulas deal with conical objects like cones and hyperbola. You should know basic concepts of them like vertex, axis, distance, and parameter, etc.

Now we will start with memorizing the formula of the circle. Since it's a very basic formula and easy to remember, you should start from here only. Formulas of ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola can be easily remembered as once you've memorized the properties of a circle, it will be very easy for you to remember them too.

We would also suggest you revise the equations under the conic section before starting your preparation for JEE. We know it is going to be a lot of work, but if you start preparing early and frequently, you will do just fine.

**5. Is it okay to skip the conic section for the JEE?**

Sections like Conic and Calculus for JEE preparations together makeup about 60% of the mathematics part of the exam and skipping them can be risky. So, you should go through the entire chapter without skipping any section of it. It is important to understand the concepts well enough to apply them in your JEE preparations. You might need these concepts while solving the questions in JEE's mathematics part.
