Question

# If $x=a\sin 2t(1+\cos 2t)$ and $y=b\cos 2t(1-\cos 2t)$, show that at $t=\dfrac{\pi }{4}$,$\dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{b}{a}$.

Hint: Take $x=a\sin 2t(1+\cos 2t)$ and $y=b\cos 2t(1-\cos 2t)$ and differentiate both of them w.r.t $t$ .After that, divide each other and substitute $t=\dfrac{\pi }{4}$. You will get the answer.

Complete step by step solution :

We are given $x=a\sin 2t(1+\cos 2t)$ and $y=b\cos 2t(1-\cos 2t)$.
So now differentiating $x$ w.r.t $t$ and differentiating $y$ w.r.t $t$ we get,
For $x$,
\begin{align} & \dfrac{dx}{dt}=\dfrac{d}{dt}\left( a\sin 2t(1+\cos 2t) \right) \\ & \dfrac{dx}{dt}=a\sin 2t\dfrac{d}{dt}(1+\cos 2t)+a(1+\cos 2t)\dfrac{d}{dt}\sin 2t \\ & \dfrac{dx}{dt}=a\sin 2t(-2\sin 2t)+2a(1+\cos 2t)(\cos 2t) \\ & \dfrac{dx}{dt}=-2a{{\sin }^{2}}2t+2a(1+\cos 2t)(\cos 2t) \\ \end{align}
$\dfrac{dx}{dt}=-2a{{\sin }^{2}}2t+2a(1+\cos 2t)(\cos 2t)$ â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦ (1)
For $y$,
\begin{align} & \dfrac{dy}{dt}=\dfrac{d}{dt}b\cos 2t(1-\cos 2t) \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dt}=b\cos 2t\dfrac{d}{dt}(1-\cos 2t)+b(1-\cos 2t)\dfrac{d}{dt}\cos 2t \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dt}=b\cos 2t(2\sin 2t)+b(1-\cos 2t)(-2\sin 2t) \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dt}=2b\cos 2t\sin 2t-2b(1-\cos 2t)(\sin 2t) \\ \end{align}
$\dfrac{dy}{dt}=2b\cos 2t\sin 2t-2b(1-\cos 2t)(\sin 2t)$â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦. (2)
Now dividing (2) by (1) we get,
\begin{align} & \dfrac{\dfrac{dy}{dt}}{\dfrac{dx}{dt}}=\dfrac{2b\cos 2t\sin 2t-2b(1-\cos 2t)(\sin 2t)}{-2a{{\sin }^{2}}2t+2a(1+\cos 2t)(\cos 2t)} \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{2b\cos 2t\sin 2t-2b(1-\cos 2t)(\sin 2t)}{-2a{{\sin }^{2}}2t+2a(1+\cos 2t)(\cos 2t)} \\ \end{align}
Now substituting $t=\dfrac{\pi }{4}$in (1) and (2), we get,
\begin{align} & \dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{2b\cos 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right)\sin 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right)-2b(1-\cos 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right))(\sin 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right))}{-2a{{\sin }^{2}}2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right)+2a(1+\cos 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right))(\cos 2\left( \dfrac{\pi }{4} \right))} \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{2b\cos \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right)\sin \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right)-2b(1-\cos \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right))(\sin \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right))}{-2a{{\sin }^{2}}\left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right)+2a(1+\cos \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right))(\cos \left( \dfrac{\pi }{2} \right))} \\ \end{align}â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.
Now taking $2a$and $2b$ common we get,
\begin{align} & \dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{2b}{2a}\left[ \dfrac{0-(1-0)(1)}{-1+0} \right] \\ & \dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{b}{a}\left[ \dfrac{-1}{-1} \right] \\ \end{align}
$\dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{b}{a}$
So we get, $\dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{b}{a}$.
Hence proved.
