Mathematical Methods Folio Task: Parabolas Investigation

User Description:
After acquiring sufficient knowledge in the area of quadratic equations and parabolas; I will attempt to determine the equation of particular parabolas which occur in real life situations. In this task, I am to identify parabolas of a brilliant piece of engineering and determine its equations. In this section of the task, I was provided with a side-on image of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (figure a.1); it showed few of the approximate dimensions, and from that, I was to find the equation of the upper arc and the lower arc. I had the freedom to choose where to place the X and the Y axis to suit the questions.

In this task, I am to identify parabolas of a brilliant piece of engineering and determine its equations. I am also to do the same for parabolas found in natural phenomenon. The purpose of this task is to assess my skills, knowledge, and understand of Parabolas and its application on real life concepts. A clear logic and mathematical steps will be shown where applied/needed, including explanations of the critical concepts used. The provided discussion of the question will include the following; any assumptions or limitations of the analysis. Part A In this section of the task, I was provided with a side-on image of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (figure a.1); it showed few of the approximate dimensions, and...
