Friday 9.3 Polar Coordinates Polar axis From the polar axis θ (when positive) forms an angle going counterclockwise. r represents the distance on the ray from the pole Given polar coordinates [r, θ ], if r ≥ 0 then r is on the ray θ and if r<0 r is on ray θ + π Example 1: plot π 2 1 , 3 Example 2: plot  π 6 1 , 2 If r = 0, then the point is on the pole > [ ] θ , = for all θ Also, [ ] [ ] π θ θ n r r 2 , , + = for integer values of n and [ ] [ ] π θ θ + = , , r r Changing from polar form to rectangular Changing from polar form to rectangular Changing from polar form to rectangular Changing from polar form to rectangular form: form: form: form: Formulas: θ θ sin cos r y r x = = Example 3: Change 3 , 2 π to rectangular form Changing from rectangular to polar form: Changing from rectangular to polar form: Changing from rectangular to polar form: Changing from rectangular to polar form: Formulas: 2 2 2 r y x = + For θ , can use formulas above or , arctan ≠ = x x y θ Example 4: Change ( ) 3 , 1 to polar form.
