Since, the given equation of the axis is x=0 so the standard form of the equation of a parabola with vertex at (h, k) is given by:
`(x-h)^2=4p(y-k)` (where the axis is vertical)
Using the coordinates of the given vertex (0,0) and the coordinates of the given point (-8,2) we get:
` `Now plugging in the value of p in the equation of parabola we get:
Therefore, the required equation of the parabola is `x^2=32y.`
