Unformatted text preview: if cos2 (θ) = 0, then cos(θ) = 0, and for the equation r cos2 (θ) = sin(θ) to hold, then sin(θ) would also have to be 0. Since there are no angles with both cos(θ) = 0 and sin(θ) = 0, we are not losing any 6 Experience is the mother of all instinct, and necessity is the mother of invention. Study this example and see what techniques are employed, then try your best to get your answers in the homework to match Jeﬀ’s. 7 Note that when we substitute θ = π into r = 6 cos(θ), we recover the point r = 0, so we aren’t losing anything 2 by disregarding r = 0. 8 See Section 8.1. 9 We could take it to be any of θ = − π + πk for integers k. 4 11.4 Polar Coordinates 791 information by dividing both sides of r cos2 (θ) = sin(θ) by cos2 (θ). Doing so, we get sin(θ) r = cos2 (θ) , or r = sec(θ) tan(θ). As before, the r = 0 case is recovered in the solution r = sec(θ) tan(θ) (let θ = 0), so we state the latter as our ﬁnal answer. 2. As a general rule, converting equations from polar to rectangular coordinates isn’t as stra...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
