# How to plot ellipse in python

**There are two ways to do one is**

import numpy as np

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

t = np.linspace(0,360,360)

x =10*np.cos(np.radians(t)) #10 is minor axis of ellipse

y = 50*np.sin(np.radians(t)) #50 is major axis of ellipse

plt.plot(x,y)

plt.show()

**i prefer this one because i have mechanical engineering background**

from numpy import *

from matplotlib.pyplot import *

t = linspace(0,360,360)

x = 10*cos(radians(t)) #10 is minor axis of ellipse

y = 50*sin(radians(t))#50 is major axis of ellipse

plot(x,y)

show()

output will be same for both
