Parabolas are used in real life in light reflectors on cars to create a concentrated beam of intense light. Braking distance and stopping distance are quadratic formulas so their graphs are parabolas. A ball in motion in space has a path of a parabola.

some real life examples are a water bottle, pipes, cans

--actually they are used in real life. parabolas are seen in "parabolic microphones" or satellites. and there are others for both ellipses and hyperbolas.

Planet's orbit :)

Parabolas are used in satalights and flash lights and archiceture and maths, whoever wrote eggs is very wrong parabolas ends never meet * * * * * All very true. The only problem is that a parabola is not an ellipse! One of the main uses for an ellipse is to describe planetary orbits.

I need hardly explain where you encounter circles.Ellipses are encountered when you cut a cylindrical object (e.g., a sausage) at an angle. Parabolas are the approximate paths taken by objects thrown into the air (when air resistance is insignificant). Hyperbolas: I may be wrong, but it would seem that these are less common in real life. ALL of the conic sections can be seen when you shine a flashlight onto a level floor (or some other plane), since the light cone is, precisely, a cone.
