10.5 Area and Lengths in Polar Coordinates The area of a circular sector is  2 1 . 2 A r θ = The area of a polar region is [ ] 2 2 1 1 2 2 ( ) or with ( ) b b a a A f d A r d r f = = = ∫ ∫ It can be helpful to graph the functions and to make use of the symmetry in many polar graphs. Example: Find the area of the region bounded by   cos3 12 12 r π - = . Example: Find the area of the region bounded by the curve  4 4cos r = -  .
