As she spoke, a shot rose high in air and ended its parabola in the heart of the doomed city.

He reached the height of the 'parabola,' and is now about to descend.
"Debts of Honor" by Maurus Jókai
At any convenient distance above J fasten a straight-edge A B, setting it parallel to the base C D of the parabola.
"Mechanical Drawing Self-Taught" by Joshua Rose
I can make it mighty tight though, if I make my surface a perfect parabola.
"The Ultimate Weapon" by John Wood Campbell
They made very pretty parabolas.
"Talents, Incorporated" by William Fitzgerald Jenkins
Is the orbit that of an ellipse, or a circle, or a parabola?
"Aether and Gravitation" by William George Hooper
Some shooting stars slipped suddenly, describing on the sky, as it were, the parabola of an enormous rocket.
"Bouvard and Pécuchet" by Gustave Flaubert
He sees them coming from afar, and, suspended like stones in a sling, describing their orbits and pushing forward their parabolas.
"The Temptation of St. Antony" by Gustave Flaubert
The parabola of a comet was perhaps a yet better illustration of the career of humanity.
"Looking Backward" by Edward Bellamy
At the age of 19, in 1657, he gave the first rectification of the semicubical parabola.

Almond-tree, beneath the terrace rail,
Black, rusted, iron trunk,
You have welded your thin stems finer,
Like steel, like sensitive steel in the air,
Grey, lavender, sensitive steel, curving thinly and brittly up
in a parabola.
"Bare Almond-Trees" by D H Lawrence
The quadratic formula, parabolas, the Fibonacci sequence.
Scoping out Lily Hoang's Parabola.
Lily Hoang's Parabola is the kind of text that solicits a rereading, but you aren't dutifully bound to return to its beginning.
Tent tops raise like parabola sails.
Those who trace a high-arcing parabola can call themselves dominant.

Near H = 0, the data points can be ﬁtted very well with a parabola, the coeﬃcient of the linear term gives the zero ﬁeld susceptibility χ = dm/dH |H=0 .
Specific-Heat Exponent of Random-Field Systems via Ground-State Calculations
For the smaller sizes we performed several ﬁelds values, as shown in Fig. 4, to determine for what range of ﬁelds a parabola accurately ﬁtted the data.
Specific-Heat Exponent of Random-Field Systems via Ground-State Calculations
For each system size, we ﬁt a parabola through the three data points for the average magnetization m(Hn ).
Specific-Heat Exponent of Random-Field Systems via Ground-State Calculations
To analyze the divergence of χ, we have again ﬁtted parabolas to the data points near the peak to obtain the positions h∗ (L) and χmax(L) of the maximum.
Specific-Heat Exponent of Random-Field Systems via Ground-State Calculations
In this case, the GP equation (11) simply gives n(r) = g−1 [µ − Vext (r)], that is, a density having the form of an inverted parabola.
