Chapter 6 - Section 6.4 - Graphs of Polar Equations - Exercise Set - Page 754: 51


The set of all points whose polar coordinates satisfy the polar equation is the graph of the polar equation. Polar grids are used to graph the polar equations.

Work Step by Step

The set of all those points, the polar coordinates of which satisfy the equation, is known as the graph of the polar equation. The graph of the polar equations is made by using the polar grids. The grid consists of circles with centers at the pole. A polar grid also shows lines passing through the pole.
