Calculus III – Section 13.3 – Change of Variables to Polar Form Some double integrals are MUCH easier to evaluate in polar form than in rectangular form. This is especially true for circular regions. Recall: Polar coordinates ( 29 θ , r of a point are related to the rectangular coordinates ( 29 y x , of the point as follows: x r y r r x y y x = = = + = cos , sin , , tan 2 2 2 Since we are now going to be looking at areas of sectors instead of rectangles, our area formula from section
