We're studying the Conic Sections by Apollonius and are asked to write an essay on any idea within book 1 that we found interesting. I wanted to write about the relation of Diameter in Parabolas vs Hyper bolas, circles and Eclipses ( the other conic sections). I want it to be something along those lines. Prop 11 and prop 12 could be of help and also Second definition of book 1 in where Apollonius states let the midpoint of hyperbola...... I don't want it to sound too advanced it's supposed to be a basic 2-3 page paper, but would like you to use multiple props as extropulation to talk about these ideas (2-4 props is sufficient). And also the significant of Parabolas and what makes them distinct from these other conic sections that causes the effect of diameter to be different would be helpful. Book 1 conic sections by Apollonius could be found online.
