How to graph a polar equation

What is a polar equation?

Polar Equations A polar equation is any equation that describes a relation between r r r and θ theta θ, where r r r represents the distance from the pole (origin) to a point on a curve, and θ theta θ represents the counterclockwise angle made by a point on a curve, the pole, and the positive x x x-axis.

Equation for maximum height

What is the formula for height in physics? Determine how high the projectile traveled above its initial height by using the following formula where V is the initial vertical velocity and T is the time it takes to reach its peak: Height = V * T +1/2 * -32.2 ft/s^2 *T^2 For example, if you […]

Potential energy equation physics

What is potential energy physics? To summarize, potential energy is the energy that is stored in an object due to its position relative to some zero position. An object possesses gravitational potential energy if it is positioned at a height above (or below) the zero height. What is potential and kinetic energy? All forms of […]
