11.2 Slope and Concavity

For the curve given by

Find the slope and concavity at the point (2,3)

At (2, 3) t = 4 and the slope is 8. The second derivative is positive so graph is concave up

Horizontal and Vertical tangents

A horizontal tangent occurs when dy/dt = 0 but dx/dt0.

A vertical tangent occurs when dx/dt = 0 but dy/dt0.

Vertical tangents

Horizontal tangent

Symmetries

Graph r2 = 4 cos θ

Finding points of intersection

Figure 9.45.

Third point does not show up.

On r = 1, point is (1, π)

On r = 1-2 cos θ, point is (-1, 0)

Where x = r cos θ = f(θ) cos θ

And y = r sin θ = f(θ) sin θ

Slope of a polar curveHorizontal tangent where dy/dθ = 0 and dx/dθ≠0

Vertical tangent where dx/dθ = 0 and dy/dθ≠0

For r = 1 – cosθ

(a) Find the slope at θ = π/6

(b) Find horizontal tangents

(c) Find vertical tangents

Finding slopes and horizontal and vertical tangent linesr = 1 – cosθ

Finding Tangent Lines at the pole

r = 2 sin 3θ

r = 2 sin 3θ = 0

3θ = 0, π, 2 π, 3 π

θ = 0, π/3, 2 π/3, π

Length of a Curve in Polar Coordinates

Find the length of the arc for r = 2 – 2cosθ

sin2A =(1-cos2A)/2

2 sin2A =1-cos2A

2 sin2 (1/2θ) =1-cosθ
