2 4 Rev.S08 Polar Coordinate System ht p:/ faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. The polar coordinate system is based on a point, called the pole , and a ray, called the polar axis . 5 Rev.S08 Rectangular and Polar Coordinates ht p:/ faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. If a point has rectangular coordinates ( x , y ) and polar coordinates ( r , θ ) , then these coordinates are related as follows. 6 Rev.S08 Example ht p:/ faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Plot the point on a polar coordinate system . Then determine the rectangular coordinates of the point. P (2, 30 ° ) r = 2 and θ = 30 ° , so point P is located 2 units from the origin in the positive direction making a 30 ° angle with the polar axis.
