Classifying a Conic Section Worksheets
How to Classify a Conic Section - Just as how the area between two radii of the circle enclosed by the circumference of a circle on the upper end is classified as a sector if we consider the three-dimensional version of a circle, which is a sphere, almost similar sector will be known as a cone or a conical section. There are just a few minute differences between a sector and a cone that are; a cone is three-dimensional and triangular in shape, which means it has a flat bottom whereas a sector is two-dimensional, and it has a round bottom due to the curved circumference of that circle. So, it is pretty easy to classify a cone. If the shape is triangular, three-dimensional, which means part of a sphere, and has a flat bottom unlike a sector that has a round bottom, then such a shape can be safely classified as a cone or conic section of a sphere.
