Quadratic Functions and Solar Ovens, Components of Parabolas

Capture solar radiation to work. It has two lids, the external lid that reflects the radiation and the internal that has a glass that allows radiation to pass.Inside it has mirrors that direct the sunlight to the plate.The mirrors in the solar oven are in a curve shape that reduces the need to reorient the oven positions.They have double glass cover and thermal insulations that prevent heat loss.The glass lid prevents infrared radiation.

Quadratic function is written as f(x) = ax2 + bx + c.a, b, and c are numbers with a not equal to zero.Parabolas are graphed in a curve shape and may open(positive) up or down (negative). A parabola intersects its axis of symmetry (vertex).Quadratic function f(x) = a(x - h)2 + k, a not equal to zero, is in standard form. Any quadratic function can be rewritten in standard form by completing the square.
