    I ♥ Paraboloids poster

    PARABOLOID When a parabola is rotated about its axis of symmetry, the three-dimensional surface thus created is a paraboloid. The general equation of a paraboloid in a three-dimensional space is
    z=(x2/a2)±(y2/b2)
    where and are constants. Elliptic paraboloids (in which the terms are added) are used for satellite dishes and in the reflectors in automobile headlights because of the reflective property of a parabola; Pringles potato chips are examples of hyperbolic paraboloids (in which the terms are subtracted).
