Description
10.6 Parametric Equations & Polar Coordinates Conic Sections in Polar Coordinates: Overview For a fixed point called focus F and l a fixed line called the directrix in a plane, e is affixed positive number called the eccentricity, then the set of all points P in the plane follows after the ratio | | | | The conic is ellipse if , a parabola if , and hyperbola if ( ) | | | | If the point P has polar coordinates then and Given | | , then | | | | ( ) | | Polar equation or represents conic section with eccentricity . The conic is ellipse if , a parabola if , and hyperbola if . represents the distance of the directrix from the focus, therefore the sign is negligent. When the focus and vertex lie along a vertical line, then is used. When the equation of the d
