Prove that the petal curves r = a cos 2nθ and r = a sin 2nθ all enclose exactly the same area. Find the area. 32. Fix a > 0 and let n be a positive integer. Prove that the petal curves r = a cos ([2n + 1]θ ) and r = a sin ([2n + 1]θ all enclose exactly the same area. Find the area. Centroids in Polar Coordinates Let be the region bounded by the polar curve r = ρ (θ ) between θ = α and θ = β . Since the centroid of a triangle lies on each median, two-thirds of the distance from the vertex to the opposite side (see Exercise 29, Section 6.4), it follows that the x and y coordinates of the centroid of the 10. r = 1 + cos θ , r = cos θ , and the rays θ = 0, θ = 1 π . 2 11. r = a(4 cos θ − sec θ ) 12. r = 1 2 and the rays θ = 0, sec2 1 θ 2 and the vertical line through the origin.
