Eccentricity

Eccentricity can be defined as how much a conic section deviates from being circular. A circle has an eccentricity of 0, this means that eccentricity shows how un-circular a curve is. Higher the eccentricity, lesser the curve.

Eccentricity of different curves:

  • A circle has an eccentricity of 0 (e = 0).
  • Eccentricity of an ellipse is greater than 0 and lesser than 1 (0 < e < 1).
  • Parabola has an eccentricity of 1 (e = 1).
  • Hyperbola has an eccentricity greater than 1 (e > 1).
