This mathematics ClipArt gallery offers 5 illustrations images of conic sections, or conics, in the shape of a circle. Conics are obtained by taking a cone, or conical surface, and intersecting it with a plane. Conic circles are retrieved by intersecting the plane parallel to the planes of the circles created by the bottom of the cone.
