How to plot a parabola (conic): y²=4ax
I'm learning about conics, specifically parabolas, and I'd like to plot them. I already know how to do plot(x^2)), but what about y²=4ax ? I understand that representation is a relation, not a function, so that probably eliminates plot(f(x)). But, I'm stuck on how I might plot that so-called "general form" of a parabola.
