The figure shows a parabolic segment, that is, a portion of a parabola cut off by a chord AB. It also shows a point C on the parabola with the property that the tangent line at C is parallel to the chord AB. Archimedes proved that the area of the parabolic segment is

To determine

**To prove:**

The area of parabola segment is

Explanation

**1) Concept:**

The coordinates of point

Then find the area of parabola segment =Area under the parabola

Then calculate the ratio of area of parabola segment ACB to the area of the triangle.

2) **Calculation:**

Let the line parallel to

Since it touches the parabola, it will satisfy the equation of the parabola at a point

Add

Discriminant

Here,

Substitute above values in

Simplify.

So

To get the coordinates of point

Add

Solve the above equation.

Substitute the above value in

Simplify.

Therefore, the coordinates of

Add

Simplify.

Put

Now the area of the parabola segment
