Equation of conic defined by : $9yy'+4x=0 $ and given $y(0)=2$, find length of latus rectum

$(a)\;\large\frac{7}{3}\\(b)\;\large\frac{2}{3}\\ (c)\;2 \\ (d)\;\large\frac{8}{3} $

1 Answer

$9y \large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=-4x$
Integrating and using $y(0)=2$
We get equation of conic
here $a=3$
Length of latus rectum $=\large\frac{2b^2}{a}$
$\qquad=\large\frac{2 \times 4}{3}$
$\qquad=\large \frac{8}{3}$
Hence d is the correct answer.
