1 _7.qxd /8/5 9: AM Page 779 Section.7 Polar Coordinates Polar Coordinates What ou should learn Plot points on the polar coordinate sstem. Convert points from rectangular to polar form and vice versa. Convert equations from rectangular to polar form and vice versa. Wh ou should learn it Polar coordinates offer a different mathematical perspective on graphing. For instance, in Exercises 8 on page 78, ou are asked to find multiple representations of polar coordinates. Introduction So far, ou have been representing graphs of equations as collections of points x, on the rectangular coordinate sstem, where x and represent the directed distances from the coordinate axes to the point x,. In this section, ou will stud a different sstem called the polar coordinate sstem. To form the polar coordinate sstem in the plane, fix a point O, called the pole (or origin), and construct from O an initial ra called the polar axis, as shown in Figure.57. Then each point P in the plane can be assigned polar coordinates r, as follows.. r directed distance from O to P. directed angle, counterclockwise from polar axis to segment OP O r = directed distance θ FIGURE.57 P= ( r, θ) = directed angle Polar axis Example Plotting Points on the Polar Coordinate Sstem a. The point r,, lies two units from the pole on the terminal side of the angle as shown in Figure.58. b. The point r,, lies three units from the pole on the terminal side of the angle as shown in Figure.59. c. The point r,, coincides with the point,, as shown in Figure..,, θ =, FIGURE.58 θ = FIGURE.59, Now tr Exercise. FIGURE., θ =

If ours does, graph the equation r. (Use a setting in which x and.) You should obtain a circle of radius. a. Use the trace feature to cursor around the circle. Can ou locate the point, 5? b. Can ou find other polar representations of the point, 5? If so, explain how ou did it. (Origin) FIGURE. θ r x (r, θ) (x, ) x Polar axis (x-axis) In rectangular coordinates, each point x, has a unique representation. This is not true for polar coordinates. For instance, the coordinates r, and r, represent the same point, as illustrated in Example. Another wa to obtain multiple representations of a point is to use negative values for r. Because r is a directed distance, the coordinates r, and r, represent the same point. In general, the point r, can be represented as r, r, ± n or r, r, ± n where n is an integer. Moreover, the pole is represented b,, where is an angle. Example Multiple Representations of Points Plot the point, and find three additional polar representations of this point, using < <. The point is shown in Figure.. Three other representations are as follows., 5,, 7,,, Now tr Exercise. Coordinate Conversion Add to. Replace r b r; subtract Replace r b r; add to. from. To establish the relationship between polar and rectangular coordinates, let the polar axis coincide with the positive x-axis and the pole with the origin, as shown in Figure.. Because x, lies on a circle of radius r, it follows that r x. Moreover, for r >, the definitions of the trigonometric functions impl that tan x, cos x r, and sin r. If r <, ou can show that the same relationships hold. Coordinate Conversion The polar coordinates r, are related to the rectangular coordinates x, as follows. Polar-to-Rectangular Rectangular-to-Polar x r cos r sin tan x r x

For the second-quadrant point x,,, ou have tan x Because lies in the same quadrant as x,, use positive r. r x So, one set of polar coordinates is r,,, as shown in Figure.. b. Because the point x,, lies on the positive -axis, choose. and r. This implies that one set of polar coordinates is r,,, as shown in Figure.5. Now tr Exercise 9.

4 _7.qxd /8/5 9: AM Page Chapter Topics in Analtic Geometr Multiple representations of points and equations in the polar sstem can cause confusion. You ma want to discuss several examples. Activities. Convert the polar equation r cos to rectangular form. Answer: x x. Convert the rectangular equation x to polar form. Answer: r sec Equation Conversion B comparing Examples and, ou can see that point conversion from the polar to the rectangular sstem is straightforward, whereas point conversion from the rectangular to the polar sstem is more involved. For equations, the opposite is true. To convert a rectangular equation to polar form, ou simpl replace x b r cos and b r sin. For instance, the rectangular equation x can be written in polar form as follows. x r sin r cos r sec tan Simplest form On the other hand, converting a polar equation to rectangular form requires considerable ingenuit. Example 5 demonstrates several polar-to-rectangular conversions that enable ou to sketch the graphs of some polar equations. Example 5 Converting Polar Equations to Rectangular Form FIGURE. Describe the graph of each polar equation and find the corresponding rectangular equation. a. r b. c. r sec a. The graph of the polar equation r consists of all points that are two units from the pole. In other words, this graph is a circle centered at the origin with a radius of, as shown in Figure.. You can confirm this b converting to rectangular form, using the relationship r x. r r x FIGURE.7 b. The graph of the polar equation consists of all points on the line that makes an angle of with the positive polar axis, as shown in Figure.7. To convert to rectangular form, make use of the relationship tan x. tan x c. The graph of the polar equation r sec is not evident b simple inspection, so convert to rectangular form b using the relationship r cos x. r sec r cos x FIGURE.8 Now ou see that the graph is a vertical line, as shown in Figure.8. Now tr Exercise 5.
