❶I don't want answers, I've like to figure them out for myself but if you could provide a clear idea of how to approach and examples explaining WHY and HOW I would be incredibly thankful, even if it's only for one of the problems.

So, this is a vertical line. This is also one of the reasons why we might want to work in polar coordinates. The equation of a circle centered at the origin has a very nice equation, unlike the corresponding equation in Cartesian coordinates. They should not be used however on the center. The first one is a circle of radius 7 centered at the origin. Here is the graph of the three equations. Here is a table of values for each followed by graphs of each.

There is one final thing that we need to do in this section. In the third graph in the previous example we had an inner loop. To find these all we need to do is set the equation equal to zero and solve as follows,. Notes Quick Nav Download. You appear to be on a device with a "narrow" screen width i. Due to the nature of the mathematics on this site it is best views in landscape mode. If your device is not in landscape mode many of the equations will run off the side of your device should be able to scroll to see them and some of the menu items will be cut off due to the narrow screen width.

Example 1 Convert each of the following points into the given coordinate system. Show Solution This conversion is easy enough. All we need to do is plug the points into the formulas. Example 2 Convert each of the following into an equation in the given coordinate system. Show Solution The first one is a circle of radius 7 centered at the origin.

Polar Coordinates Each point in the polar coordinate system can be described with the two polar coordinates, which are usually called r (the radial coordinate) and θ (the angular coordinate, polar angle, or azimuth angle, sometimes represented as φ or t).

The polar coordinates is a coordinate system which is similar to the rectangular coordinate system in the standard form of (r, θ), where r is the radius and θ is the angle in the standard position. The outline of polar coordinate plane is given below. Find two sets of polar coordinates for the point for 0 ≤ θ.
