There are 2 equations that define the relationship between cartesian and polar coordinates:
or, equivalently
To do your conversions, just make the substitutions, eg:
1a
Hi, for polar equations, you usually need r and theta, in this case, I am only given one bit of information, how do I do it?
1) Convert these polar equations to Cartesian:
a]
b]
2) Convert from Cartesian to polar:
a]
b]
Thanks for any help
