#### Polar to cartesian equation calculator

## How do you convert polar to Cartesian equation?

Summary: to convert from Polar Coordinates (r,θ) to Cartesian Coordinates (x,y) 😡 = r × cos( θ )y = r × sin( θ )

## How do you calculate polar and rectangular?

In general, to convert between polar and rectangular coordinates use the following rules: x = r cos(θ) y = r sin(θ) r = (x2 + y2)1/2.

## What is Cartesian equation?

: an equation of a curve or surface in which the variables are the Cartesian coordinates of a point on the curve or surface.

## How do you convert a parameter to Cartesian equation?

A cartesian equation of a curve is simply finding the single equation of this curve in a standard form where xs and ys are the only variables. To find this equation, you need to solve the parametric equations simultaneously: If y = 4t, then divide both sides by 4 to find (1/4)y = t.

## Are Cartesian and rectangular coordinates the same?

The Cartesian coordinates (also called rectangular coordinates) of a point are a pair of numbers (in two-dimensions) or a triplet of numbers (in three-dimensions) that specified signed distances from the coordinate axis.

## What is a rectangular equation?

A rectangular equation, or an equation in rectangular form is an equation composed of variables like x and y which can be graphed on a regular Cartesian plane. For example y=4x+3 is a rectangular equation.

## What is polar and rectangular form?

In Rectangular Form a complex number is represented by a point in space on the complex plane. In Polar Form a complex number is represented by a line whose length is the amplitude and by the phase angle.

## How do you put a polar equation into a calculator?

The radian symbol (r) can be found in the Angle menu. So to enter, for example, the polar form number (240∠75) into the calculator you must enter 240 e^(i 75/1r). The calculator will then display 62.12 + 231.8i corresponding to the polar form number (240∠75).

## How do you multiply with polar coordinates?

To multiply complex numbers in polar form, multiply the magnitudes and add the angles. To divide, divide the magnitudes and subtract one angle from the other.

## How do you convert to rectangular coordinates?

To convert from polar coordinates to rectangular coordinates, use the formulas x=rcosθ and y=rsinθ.

## What are polar coordinates in math?

In mathematics, the polar coordinate system is a two-dimensional coordinate system in which each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a reference point and an angle from a reference direction. Angles in polar notation are generally expressed in either degrees or radians (2π rad being equal to 360°).
