A railroad tunnel is shaped like a semiellipse as shown below.
A semiellipse is shown on the coordinate plane with vertices on the x axis and one point of intersection with the positive y axis.
The height of the tunnel at the center is 54 ft and the vertical clearance must be 18 ft at a point 8 ft from the center. Find an equation for the ellipse.
I will post a pic in a second.
