Introduction to Polar Coordinates

– WELCOME TO A LESSON ON POLAR COORDINATES. SO FAR WE HAVE BEEN GRAPHING ON THE COORDINATE PLANE USING RECTANGULAR COORDINATES AS WE SEE HERE WHERE THE X AXIS IS THE HORIZONTAL AXIS, THE Y AXIS IS THE VERTICAL AXIS, AND THE POINT IN THE CENTER IS CALLED THE ORIGIN. WE WILL NOW STUDY THE […]

Double Integrals in Polar Coordinates – Example 2

Welcome to a second example of converting a double integral in rectangular form to polar form. As we discussed in a previous video. To convert a double integral in rectangular form to polar form. We have to convert the function f of x, y into a function in terms of r and theta. And differential […]

Converting Coordinates between Polar and Rectangular Form

BAM!!! Mr. Tarrou. Ok, we did a video of helping you understand the polar coordinate system, or attempting to. Hopefully that helped, if not, let me know what you still need me to go over. Right now we are going to just a quick video for converting between rectangular to polar and vise versa, from […]

Ex: Find the Rectangular and Polar Equation of a Circle From a Graph

– WE WANT TO WRITE THE RECTANGULAR AND POLAR EQUATION FOR THE GIVEN GRAPH OF THE CIRCLE. WE’LL WRITE THE RECTANGULAR EQUATION OF THE CIRCLE USING THE STANDARD FORM OF A CIRCLE GIVEN HERE, WHERE THE CENTER OF THE CIRCLE WOULD HAVE THE COORDINATES (H,K) AND R=THE LENGTH OF THE RADIUS OF THE CIRCLE.
