# InteractiveConicPlot

Display an interactive plot with all relevant information for a given conic section

Contributed by: Wolfram|Alpha Math Team
 ResourceFunction["InteractiveConicPlot"][expr,{x,y}] returns an interactive display of the properties of the conic section given by expr in terms of the variables x and y.

## Details

The input expr can be an equation or an Association of properties for a conic section in terms of the variables x and y.
The three distinct, non-degenerate conic sections are parabolas, hyperbolas and ellipses, with circles as a special case of an ellipse.
Parabola properties returned are "Equation", "Focus ", "Vertex", "Directrix", "FocalParameter", "SemiAxisLength", "AxisOfSymmetry", "SemiLatusRectum", "RotationAngle" and "BaseConic".
Ellipse properties returned are "Equation", "Foci", "Vertices", "Covertices", "Eccentricity", "Center", "SemimajorAxisLength", "SemiminorAxisLength", "AreaEnclosed", "SemiLatusRectum", "Directrices", "AxesOfSymmetry", "Circumference", "RotationAngle" and "BaseConic".
Circle properties returned are "Equation", "Radius", "Circumference", "Center" and "AreaEnclosed".
Hyperbola properties returned are "Equation", "Foci", "Vertices", "Eccentricity", "Asymptotes", "Center", "SemimajorAxisLength", "SemiminorAxisLength", "Directrices", "AxesOfSymmetry", "SemiLatusRectum", "RotationAngle", "ConjugateHyperbola" and "BaseConic".
