Description
10.3 Parametric Equations & Polar Coordinates Polar Coordinates: Overview Polar Coordinate System Pole is a point in the plane (origin) and labeled O. Horizontal line drawn from the pole is called polar axis, and usually corresponds to the positive x-axis in Cartesian coordinates For any point P in the plane, the distance OP is r, and angle(usually in radians) is formed between the polar axis and the line OP. Then the point P is represented by the ordered pair )and these are called the polar coordinates of P. If ,
