I am a trying to determine an objects position on a polar diagram, given its position on a cartesian plane. The object has length , width and orientation. The orientation will obviously determine the size of the object as seen from the origin of the polar plot
I want to determine its position on a polar plane (r theta). This is easy if the object is a point but if it has extent (i.e length and width) then the angle it subtends on the polar plot will be different depending on its orientation.
Any ideas on how to determine the angle subtended by an object on a polar plot of such an object , or maybe point me in the correct direction
