Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to work on drawing hyperbola. So basically hyperbola is if you have say for example you've got liquid and then this is air here. This is liquid then this here, this line where the liquid sort of bends, is your hyperbola. Okay, so that being said you can see hyperbola in lots of different places in nature and what have you. A good place to find hyperbola for example is in an hourglass. So here's our hourglass and then the sand as it falls through the hourglass creates this hyperbola here as you can see. So we can also see hyperbola in a glass of wine for example, say we have a glass of wine and here we kind of almost have two hyperbola, we have our liquid and we have the rim of our glass. So basically this is how you would draw hyperbola. I'm going to do that for you again. You have your glass, right? And you have your liquid so you're going to take your line. Instead of drawing a straight line across like this for example you're just going to bend it just lightly, just give it a little bit of a downward arch and then if you want to you can put another one across on the other side. Again, not straight, you're going to curve it down closest to you and then back up a little bit to show it's away from you and you can do that at the top of the glass as well. And that is how you draw hyperbola.
