SheldonEinstein Group Title

A( \(z_A\) ) , B ( \(z_B\) ) , C ( \(z_C\) ) are vertices of right angled triangle, \(z_c\) being the orthocentre. A circle is described on AC as diameter. Find the point of intersection of the circle with hypotenuse.

    If we draw a line from point C to the intersection point, the line will make 90 degrees and will be perpendicular to AB..

    Without loss of generality we can assume C is the origin ..it'll simplify the problem |dw:1352285727325:dw|

    otherwise use (Z-0)/(z0-0) ={ I z I / I Z0 I }e^( i pi/2)
