    Question 4:

    If y = 4x + 3 is parallel to a tangent to the parabola y2 = 12x, then its distance from the normal parallel to the given line is

    WBJEE Parabola Question 4

    Solution 4:

    We have equation of line,

    y = 4x + 3

    So, slope of line = 4

    Also, a = 3

    Equation of normal

    y = mx – 2am – am3

    y = 4x – 216

     WBJEE Parabola Solution 4

    Hence, the correct option is (B).

    Question 5:

    The point on the parabola y2 = 64x which is nearest to the line 4x + 3y + 35 = 0 has coordinates

    (A) (9, –24)

    (B) (1, 81)

    (C) (4, –16)

    (D) (–9, –24)

    Solution 5:

    The coordinate of foot of the normal are (am2, –2am)

    Comparing the equation of parabola with the standard equation of parabola, we get:

    a = 16

    We have the equation of line:

    4x + 3y + 35 = 0

    So, the slope of line is -4/3

    So, the slope of normal to the line is 3/4.

    So, the point on the parabola is (9, –24).

    Hence, the correct option is (A).
