How do I make my TI-83+ graph the line tangent to a polar graph given some theta? Is my calculator capable of doing this, or must I find the equation analytically?
How do I make my TI-83+ graph the line tangent to a polar graph given some theta? Is my calculator capable of doing this, or must I find the equation analytically?
Thanks.
1. Switch the calculator into polar mode.
2. Draw the graph.
3. Choose DRAW (=2ND PRGM) 5: Tangent(
4. The cursor is placed on the graph. Choose a point by the cursor or enter a value of $\displaystyle \theta$.
