Element PolarLine

JXG.GeometryElement
   ↳ JXG.Line
         ↳ PolarLine

This element is used to provide a constructor for the polar line of a point with respect to a conic or a circle.

Defined in: line.js.
Extends JXG.Line.

Element Detail
PolarLine
The polar line is the unique reciprocal relationship of a point with respect to a conic. The lines through the intersections of a conic and the polar line of a point with respect to that conic and through that point are tangent to the conic. A point on a conic has the polar line of that point with respect to that conic as the tangent line to that conic at that point. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_and_polar for more information on pole and polar.
This element has no direct constructor. To create an instance of this element you have to call JXG.Board#create with type "polarline".

Possible parent array combinations are:
{JXG.Conic|JXG.Circle} el1
{JXG.Point} el2

or


{JXG.Point} el1
{JXG.Conic|JXG.Circle} el2

The result will be the polar line of the point with respect to the conic or the circle.


Throws:
{Exception}
If the element cannot be constructed with the given parent objects an exception is thrown.
Examples:
// Create the polar line of a point with respect to a conic
var p1 = board.create('point', [-1, 2]);
var p2 = board.create('point', [ 1, 4]);
var p3 = board.create('point', [-1,-2]);
var p4 = board.create('point', [ 0, 0]);
var p5 = board.create('point', [ 4,-2]);
var c1 = board.create('conic',[p1,p2,p3,p4,p5]);
var p6 = board.create('point', [-1, 1]);
var l1 = board.create('polarline', [c1, p6]);

				
				
// Create the polar line of a point with respect to a circle.
var p1 = board.create('point', [ 1, 1]);
var p2 = board.create('point', [ 2, 3]);
var c1 = board.create('circle',[p1,p2]);
var p3 = board.create('point', [ 6, 6]);
var l1 = board.create('polarline', [c1, p3]);
