slide2

The Cartesian system of rectangular coordinates is not the only graphing system. This chapter explores the polarcoordinatesystem.

P

(r, θ)

r

θ

O

(polar axis)

fixed ray OA

A

We will graph in what is called the rθ-plane

fixed point (pole or origin)

A polar coordinate is the ordered pair (r, θ)

r = distance from pole to point

θ = angle from polar axis (deg or rad)

(pos or neg)

on

terminal side

on opposite of terminal side

(pos or neg)

counterclockwise

clockwise

slide4

Note: Since θ and θ + 2πn, n  will produce equal angles, a point can be represented in infinitely many polar coordinate pairs.

r can also be positive or negative, adding to the options

Note: If r > 0 and 0 ≤ θ < 2π, then (r, θ) represents exactly 1 point.

Ex 2) Plot

Which of these does NOT represent the same point?

(Identify and fix it)

A) B) C)

slide5

An equation with polar coordinates is a polarequation. We will graph with constants today, r = c and θ = k, and explore more complicated ones tomorrow.

Ex 3) Graph each polar equation.

a) r = 3

(length always 3

angle is anything)

1 2 3

b)

(angle always

r can be anything

positive or negative)

OR

slide6

Your turn. Graph on whiteboard.

c) d) r = –4

*same as r = 4

slide7

If we superimposed the rectangular coordinate system on the rθ-plane we can discover their relationships.

In cartesian:

(x, y)

(r, θ)

r

y

= r sinθ

θ

x

= r cosθ

and

also

You will use these relationships to change equations from one system to another system.

slide8

Ex 4) Find the rectangular coordinates. Round to nearest hundredth.

(if necessary)

a)

b)

(not famous – use calculator)

**RAD mode

slide9

To convert from rectangular to polar:

(if x > 0)

(if x < 0)

Ex 5) Find polar coordinates of

slide10

Ex 6) Convert:

a) x = 3 to a polar equation

b) to a rectangular equation

x2 + y2
