• ### Secondary 4 - Locus

1. 1. Locus Locus t
2. 2. Locus <ul><li>The path of an object that obeys a certain condition . </li></ul>
3. 3. A cow, grazing in a field, moves so that it is always a distance of 5m from the pole that it is tied to. How will the locus of the cow look like? locus Burp! path Specific condition
4. 4. If cows run on 2 legs…………..
5. 5. A cow runs on a straight level road . How will the locus of the cow look like? locus Specific condition path
6. 6. <ul><li>2 loci that you will encounter often are circles and straight lines </li></ul>
7. 7. A cow, grazing in a field, moves so that it is always a distance of 5m from the pole [P] that it is tied to. How will the locus of the cow [C] look like? Alamak! How to draw 5 m on paper? Perform scale drawing! Let’s use 1 cm to represent 1 m. P
8. 8. 5 cm C The locus of the cow is a circle with centre P & radius 5 m . P
9. 9. The goat moves such that it is always 3 m away from the bar. How will the locus of the goat look like?
10. 10. The loci of the goat are 2 straight lines // to the bar [Line AB] at a distance of 3 m from the bar [ Line AB ]. A B 3 cm 3 cm 3 cm 3 cm We will be using scaled drawing here too =]
11. 11. The very lovely Ms Chia is dashing off to meet her hunky fiance, but as she was about to cut across the field, she spots Strippy on one side and Moppy on the other. They are both looking hopefully in her direction. She knows that whoever she passes closer to will immediately assume that he’s invited to send her home. This is a huge headache for Ms Chia.
12. 12. Please, help me 5B!!! What should I do to make sure I am always exactly the same distance from both Strippy and Moppy?
13. 14. S M Place your compass at S. Place your compass at M. Perpendicular bisector The locus of Ms Chia is a perpendicular bisector of the line which joins Strippy [ Point S ] to Moppy [ Point M ].
14. 15. Ms Chia’s safest route Strippy Moppy
15. 16. Suppose you created a canyon that can bring you to outer space. Your canyon is magnetic. You must find a path that goes exactly between the 2 walls – one false move and your canyon will be dragged over to the side and splattered, WITH YOU ON IT.
16. 17. The locus of canyon is the angle bisector of angle created when the 2 walls [ 2 lines ] meet. Place your compass at where the lines [walls] meet. Place your compass at the blue pts.
