## Where is the pole on polar graph?

Figure 10.3. 2: The polar coordinate system. The line segment starting from the center of the graph going to the right (called the positive x-axis in the Cartesian system) is the polar axis. The center point is the pole, or origin, of the coordinate system, and corresponds to r=0.

**What is the pole on a polar grid?**

The rectangular coordinate system is the most widely used coordinate system. Second in importance is the polar coordinate system. It consists of a fixed point 0 called the pole, or origin. Extending from this point is a ray called the polar axis.

### How do you find the polar equation of a function?

Solution: Identify the type of polar equation The polar equation is in the form of a limaçon, r = a – b cos θ. Since the equation passes the test for symmetry to the polar axis, we only need to evaluate the equation over the interval [0, π] and then reflect the graph about the polar axis.

**What is the pole on a graph?**

For a rational function in reduced form the poles are the values of s where the denominator is equal to zero; or, in other words, the points where the rational function is not defined.

#### How do you test for pole symmetry?

If in the polar equation, (r, θ) can be replaced by (r, – θ)or(- r, Π – θ), the graph is symmetric with respect to the polar axis. If in the polar equation, (r, θ) can be replaced by (- r, θ)or(r, Π + θ), the graph is symmetric with respect to the pole.

**How do you find polar symmetry equations?**

## How do you find the polar coordinates of a point?

To convert from rectangular coordinates to polar coordinates, use one or more of the formulas: cosθ=xr, sinθ=yr, tanθ=yx, and r=√x2+y2.

**How do you find poles?**

Identify any zeros in the numerator that are also zeros in the denominator, along with their multiplicities. Each zero in the denominator is a pole whose order is given by taking the multiplicity in the denominator and subtracting away the multiplicity in the numerator.

### How do you find the graph of a polar equation?

The graph of a polar equation is the set of all points in the plane whose polar coordinates (at least one representation) satisfy the equation. The graph of the polar equation r= 1 consists of those points in the plane whose distance from the pole is 1. That is the circle of radius 1 centered at the pole.

**How do you find the direction of a point in polar coordinate?**

Each point in the polar coordinate system is given by (r, [θ&]) (r,θ), where r r is the distance from the pole (origin) to the point, and [θ&] θ is the counterclockwise angle that is made with the point, pole, and the positive

#### What is the equation for a line that passes through the pole?

The general form equation for a line that passes through the pole is x x -axis. Notice that this equation contains no r r parameter. This implies that the line can extend indefinitely outward from the pole, but the angle it makes with positive

**What is the polar equation of a circle with radius r?**

Polar equation of a circle with a center at the pole. Since, r 2 = x 2 + y 2 and x 2 + y 2 = R 2 then r = R. is polar equation of a circle with radius R and a center at the pole (origin). Example: Convert the polar equation of a circle r = – 4 cosq into Cartesian coordinates.
