Area & Length in Polar Coordinates
Question #4 (Medium): Area Between Two Polar Curves
First the point of intersection need to be set foby setting the two polar equations equal to each other.
Then the integral can be simplified based on symmetry, etc. The area is to be inside the first function,
and outside the second function, thus the expression inside the integral for the area is
∫ ( )
Find the area of the region that lies inside the first polar curve and outside the second polar curve.
The point of intersection between these two polar equations can be obtained by se
