19 If a polar curve is symmetric, then we can use it to our advantage. Let us look at a symmetric polar curve, called the lemniscate , produced by r = f ( q ). Observation 1 : Symmetricity about the x -axis. The sign and size of r do not change even if we use q or - q . That is, r = f ( q ) = f ( -q ). q - q 20 Observation 2 : Symmetricity about the y -axis. The sign and size of r do not change even if we use q or p-q . That is, r = f ( q )= f ( p-q ). q p - q
21 2 Observation 3 : Symmetricity about the origin . q p + q The sign and size of r do not change even if we use q or p+ q . That is, r = f ( q ) = f ( p + q ). 22 Symmetric Polar Curves Let us look at a symmetric polar curve, called the lemniscate , produced by r = f ( q ). Symmetricity about the x -axis.
