Major / minor axis of an ellipse - Math Open Reference Major / Minor axis of an ellipse Major axis: The longest diameter of an ellipse. Minor axis: The shortest diameter of an ellipse. Try this Drag any orange dot. The major and minor axes of an ellipse are diameters (lines through the center) of the ellipse. Each axis is the perpendicular bisector of the other. The focus points always lie on the major (longest) axis, spaced equally each side of the center. Calculating the axis lengths Recall that an ellipse is defined by the position of the two focus points (foci) and the sum of the distances from them to any point on the ellipse. The length of the minor axis is given by the formula: where f is the distance between foci a,b are the distances from each focus to any point on the ellipse.
