    Polar Plots

    In my college notes, a few steps are skipped leaving meaning there's a lot of confusion as to where the figures are coming from.

    I would like to know how to calculate where a polar plot intersects the unit circle?

    Surely it would be wherever |r| = 1...

    Thank you for the reply, that was quick.

    Unfortunately I don't have access to my lecture notes to have a look at an example problem, I just asked the question from memory. Do you know of any resource that would show a simple example with solution as I'd like to apply the solution you suggested.

    Thanks
