# How to create a Hyperbola curve using Equation Curve (Autodesk Inventor 2013)

I want to draw hyperbola curve whose equation is  x^2/a^2  - y^2/b^2=1. May I use equation curve tool to make the above hyperbola.  If it is possible please help me to do so.

I have also made a hyperbola curve of aforesaid equation through conventional method on mathematical ground in the past. I am posting the file of the same to make the question clearer.

First thing, write your equation in terms of Y=SQRT(b^2((x/a)^2-1)). For the equation curve, set x=t
