If we grasp the end of the string and begin to unwind it, we get a piece of the involute, until the string is vertical. If we then keep the string taut and continue to rotate it counter-clockwise, the end traces out a semi-circle with center at $(-1,0)), until the string is vertical again.

Rectangular coordinates are the ordinary ((x, y)) coordinates that you are used to.

Polar coordinates represent the same point, but describe the point by its distance from the origin ((r)) and its angle on the unit circle (( heta)). To translate back and forth between polar and rectangular coordinates you should use the basic trig relationships:

(sin heta=frac

(cos heta=frac

( an heta=frac

You can also express the relationship between (x, y) and (r) using the Pythagorean Theorem.

Note that coordinates in polar form are not unique. This is because there are an infinite number of coterminal angles that point towards any given ((x, y)) coordinate.

For example, the point (3,4) can be written in polar coordinates in at least three different ways. To find ( heta), use the third equation from above and to find (r) use the pythagorean theorem.

Three equivalent polar coordinates for the point (3,4) are:

Notice how the third coordinate points in the opposite direction and has a seemingly negative radius. This means go in the opposite direction of the angle.

Once you can translate back and forth between points, use the same substitutions to change equations too. A polar equation is written with the radius as a function of the angle. This means an equation in polar form should be written in the form (r=) ___.

To write an equation in polar form, use the conversion equations to substitute. For example, to convert (y=-x+1) to polar form make substitutions for (y) and (x). Then, solve for (r).

## 10 Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations

1 Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations ½¼º½ ÈÓÐ Ö ÓÓÖ Ò Ø Coordinate systems are tools that let us use algebraic methods to understand geometry While the rectangular (also called Cartesian) coordinates that we have been using are the most common, some problems are easier to analyze in alternate coordinate systems A coordinate system is a scheme that allows us to identify any point in the plane or in three-dimensional space by a set of numbers In rectangular coordinates these numbers are interpreted, roughly speaking, as the lengths of the sides of a rectangle In polar coordinates a point in the plane is identified by a pair of numbers (r,&theta) The number &theta measures the angle between the positive x-axis and a ray that goes through the point, as shown in figure the number r measures the distance from the origin to the point Figure shows the point with rectangular coordinates (, 3) and polar coordinates (2,&pi/3), 2 units from the origin and &pi/3 radians from the positive x-axis 3 (2,&pi/3) Figure Polar coordinates of the point (, 3) 239

2 24 Chapter Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations Just as we describe curves in the plane using equations involving x and y, so can we describe curves using equations involving r and &theta Most common are equations of the form r = f(&theta) EXAMPLE Graph the curve given by r = 2 All points with r = 2 are at distance 2 from the origin, so r = 2 describes the circle of radius 2 with center at the origin EXAMPLE 2 Graph the curve given by r = + cos&theta We first consider y = +cosx, as in figure 2 As &theta goes through the values in [,2&pi], the value of r tracks the value of y, forming the cardioid shape of figure 2 For example, when &theta = &pi/2, r = + cos(&pi/2) =, so we graph the point at distance from the origin along the positive y-axis, which is at an angle of &pi/2 from the positive x-axis When &theta = 7&pi/4, r = +cos(7&pi/4) = + 2/2 7, and the corresponding point appears in the fourth quadrant This illustrates one of the potential benefits of using polar coordinates: the equation for this curve in rectangular coordinates would be quite complicated 2 &pi/2 &pi 3&pi/2 2&pi Figure 2 A cardioid: y = +cosx on the left, r = +cos&theta on the right Each point in the plane is associated with exactly one pair of numbers in the rectangular coordinate system each point is associated with an infinite number of pairs in polar coordinates In the cardioid example, we considered only the range &theta 2&pi, and already there was a duplicate: (2,) and (2,2&pi) are the same point Indeed, every value of &theta outside the interval [,2&pi) duplicates a point on the curve r = +cos&theta when &theta < 2&pi We can even make sense of polar coordinates like ( 2,&pi/4): go to the direction &pi/4 and then move a distance 2 in the opposite direction see figure 3 As usual, a negative angle &theta means an angle measured clockwise from the positive x-axis The point in figure 3 also has coordinates (2, 5&pi/4) and (2, 3&pi/4) The relationship between rectangular and polar coordinates is quite easy to understand The point with polar coordinates (r,&theta) has rectangular coordinates x = rcos&theta and y = rsin&theta this follows immediately from the definition of the sine and cosine functions Using figure 3 as an example, the point shown has rectangular coordinates

3 Polar Coordinates Figure 3 The point ( 2, &pi/4) = (2, 5&pi/4) = (2, 3&pi/4) in polar coordinates x = ( 2)cos(&pi/4) = and y = ( 2)sin(&pi/4) = 2 This makes it very easy to convert equations from rectangular to polar coordinates EXAMPLE 3 Find the equation of the line y = 3x+2 in polar coordinates We 2 merely substitute: rsin&theta = 3rcos&theta+2, or r = sin&theta 3cos&theta EXAMPLE 4 Find the equation of the circle (x /2) 2 + y 2 = /4 in polar coordinates Again substituting: (rcos&theta /2) 2 +r 2 sin 2 &theta = /4 A bit of algebra turns this into r = cos(t) You should try plotting a few (r,&theta) values to convince yourself that this makes sense EXAMPLE 5 Graph the polar equation r = &theta Here the distance from the origin exactly matches the angle, so a bit of thought makes it clear that when &theta we get the spiral of Archimedes in figure 4 When &theta <, r is also negative, and so the full graph is the right hand picture in the figure &pi/4 (&pi/2, &pi/2) (,) (&pi,&pi) (2&pi, 2&pi) ( &pi/2, &pi/2) ( 2&pi, 2&pi) (, ) ( &pi, &pi) Figure 4 The spiral of Archimedes and the full graph of r = &theta Converting polar equations to rectangular equations can be somewhat trickier, and graphing polar equations directly is also not always easy

4 242 Chapter Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations EXAMPLE 6 Graph r = 2sin&theta Because the sine is periodic, we know that we will get the entire curve for values of &theta in [,2&pi) As &theta runs from to &pi/2, r increases from to 2 Then as &theta continues to &pi, r decreases again to When &theta runs from &pi to 2&pi, r is negative, and it is not hard to see that the first part of the curve is simply traced out again, so in fact we get the whole curve for values of &theta in [,&pi) Thus, the curve looks something like figure 5 Now, this suggests that the curve could possibly be a circle, and if it is, it would have to be the circle x 2 +(y ) 2 = Having made this guess, we can easily check it First we substitute for x and y to get (rcos&theta) 2 + (rsin&theta ) 2 = expanding and simplifying does indeed turn this into r = 2sin&theta Figure 5 Graph of r = 2sin&theta Exercises Plot these polar coordinate points on one graph: (2,&pi/3), ( 3,&pi/2), ( 2, &pi/4), (/2,&pi), (,4&pi/3), (,3&pi/2) Find an equation in polar coordinates that has the same graph as the given equation in rectangular coordinates 2 y = 3x 3 y = 4 4 xy 2 = 5 x 2 +y 2 = 5 6 y = x 3 7 y = sinx 8 y = 5x+2 9 x = 2 y = x 2 + y = 3x 2 2x 2 y = x 2 +y 2 Sketch the curve 3 r = cos&theta

6 244 Chapter Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations This fraction is zero when the numerator is zero (and the denominator is not zero) The numerator is 2cos 2 &theta +cos&theta so by the quadratic formula cos&theta = ± = or This means &theta is &pi or ±&pi/3 However, when &theta = &pi, the denominator is also, so we cannot conclude that the tangent line is horizontal Setting the denominator to zero we get &theta 2sin&thetacos&theta = sin&theta(+2cos&theta) =, so either sin&theta = or cos&theta = /2 The first is true when &theta is or &pi, the second when &theta is 2&pi/3 or 4&pi/3 However, as above, when &theta = &pi, the numerator is also, so we cannot conclude that the tangent line is vertical Figure 2 shows points corresponding to &theta equal to, ±&pi/3, 2&pi/3 and 4&pi/3 on the graph of the function Note that when &theta = &pi the curve hits the origin and does not have a tangent line 2 Figure 2 Points of vertical and horizontal tangency for r = +cos&theta We know that the second derivative f (x) is useful in describing functions, namely, in describing concavity We can compute f (x) in terms of polar coordinates as well We already know how to write dy/dx = y in terms of &theta, then d dy dx dx = dy dx = dy d&theta d&theta dx = dy /d&theta dx/d&theta EXAMPLE 22 We find the second derivative for the cardioid r = +cos&theta: d cos&theta +cos 2 &theta sin 2 &theta d&theta sin&theta 2sin&thetacos&theta dx/d&theta = = = 3(+cos&theta) (sin&theta+2sin&thetacos&theta) 2 3(+cos&theta) (sin&theta+2sin&thetacos&theta) 3 (sin&theta +2sin&thetacos&theta) The ellipsis here represents rather a substantial amount of algebra We know from above that the cardioid has horizontal tangents at ±&pi/3 substituting these values into the second

8 246 Chapter Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations EXAMPLE 3 We find the area inside the cardioid r = +cos&theta 2&pi 2 (+cos&theta)2 d&theta = 2&pi 2 +2cos&theta+cos 2 &theta d&theta = 2 (&theta +2sin&theta+ &theta 2 + sin2&theta 4 ) 2&pi = 3&pi 2 Figure 3 Approximating area by sectors of circles EXAMPLE 32 We find the area between the circles r = 2 and r = 4sin&theta, as shown in figure 32 The two curves intersect where 2 = 4sin&theta, or sin&theta = /2, so &theta = &pi/6 or 5&pi/6 The area we want is then 2 5&pi/6 &pi/6 6sin 2 &theta 4 d&theta = 4 3 &pi +2 3 Figure 32 An area between curves This example makes the process appear more straightforward than it is Because points have many different representations in polar coordinates, it is not always so easy to identify points of intersection

9 3 Areas in polar coordinates 247 EXAMPLE 33 We find the shaded area in the first graph of figure 33 as the difference of the other two shaded areas The cardioid is r = + sin&theta and the circle is r = 3sin&theta We attempt to find points of intersection: +sin&theta = 3sin&theta = 2sin&theta /2 = sin&theta This has solutions &theta = &pi/6 and 5&pi/6 &pi/6 corresponds to the intersection in the first quadrant that we need Note that no solution of this equation corresponds to the intersection point at the origin, but fortunately that one is obvious The cardioid goes through the origin when &theta = &pi/2 the circle goes through the origin at multiples of &pi, starting with Now the larger region has area and the smaller has area so the area we seek is &pi/8 &pi/6 (+sin&theta) 2 d&theta = &pi 2 &pi/ &pi/6 (3sin&theta) 2 d&theta = 3&pi Figure 33 An area between curves

11 4 Parametric Equations 249 ½¼º È Ö Ñ ØÖ ÕÙ Ø ÓÒ When we computed the derivative dy/dx using polar coordinates, we used the expressions x = f(&theta) cos &theta and y = f(&theta) sin &theta These two equations completely specify the curve, though the form r = f(&theta) is simpler The expanded form has the virtue that it can easily be generalized to describe a wider range of curves than can be specified in rectangular or polar coordinates Suppose f(t) and g(t) are functions Then the equations x = f(t) and y = g(t) describe a curve in the plane In the case of the polar coordinates equations, the variable t is replaced by &theta which has a natural geometric interpretation But t in general is simply an arbitrary variable, often called in this case a parameter, and this method of specifying a curve is known as parametric equations One important interpretation of t is time In this interpretation, the equations x = f(t) and y = g(t) give the position of an object at time t EXAMPLE 4 Describe the path of an object that moves so that its position at time t is given by x = cost, y = cos 2 t We see immediately that y = x 2, so the path lies on this parabola The path is not the entire parabola, however, since x = cost is always between and It is now easy to see that the object oscillates back and forth on the parabola between the endpoints (,) and (,), and is at point (,) at time t = It is sometimes quite easy to describe a complicated path in parametric equations when rectangular and polar coordinate expressions are difficult or impossible to devise EXAMPLE 42 A wheel of radius rolls along a straight line, say the x-axis A point on the rim of the wheel will trace out a curve, called a cycloid Assume the point starts at the origin find parametric equations for the curve Figure 4 illustrates the generation of the curve (click on the AP link to see an animation) The wheel is shown at its starting point, and again after it has rolled through about 49 degrees We take as our parameter t the angle through which the wheel has turned, measured as shown clockwise from the line connecting the center of the wheel to the ground Because the radius is, the center of the wheel has coordinates (t,) We seek to write the coordinates of the point on the rim as (t + x, + y), where x and y are as shown in figure 42 These values are nearly the sine and cosine of the angle t, from the unit circle definition of sine and cosine However, some care is required because we are measuring t from a nonstandard starting line and in a clockwise direction, as opposed to the usual counterclockwise direction A bit of thought reveals that x = sint and y = cost Thus the parametric equations for the cycloid are x = t sint, y = cost

If t is interpreted as time, describe how the object moves on the curve 5 Sketch the curve described by x = t 3 t, y = t 2 If t is interpreted as time, describe how the object moves on the curve 6 A wheel of radius rolls along a straight line, say the x-axis A point P is located halfway between the center of the wheel and the rim assume P starts at the point (,/2) As the wheel rolls, P traces a curve find parametric equations for the curve 7 A wheel of radius rolls around the outside of a circle of radius 3 A point P on the rim of the wheel traces out a curve called a hypercycloid, as indicated in figure 43 Assuming P starts at the point (3,), find parametric equations for the curve 8 A wheel of radius rolls around the inside of a circle of radius 3 A point P on the rim of the wheel traces out a curve called a hypocycloid, as indicated in figure 43 Assuming P starts at the point (3,), find parametric equations for the curve 9 An involute of a circle is formed as follows: Imagine that a long (that is, infinite) string is wound tightly around a circle, and that you grasp the end of the string and begin to unwind it, keeping the string taut The end of the string traces out the involute Find parametric equations for this curve, using a circle of radius, and assuming that the string unwinds counter-clockwise and the end of the string is initially at (, ) Figure 44 shows part of the curve the dotted lines represent the string at a few different times

13 5 Calculus with Parametric Equations 25 Figure 43 A hypercycloid and a hypocycloid Figure 44 An involute of a circle ½¼º ÐÙÐÙ Û Ø È Ö Ñ ØÖ ÕÙ Ø ÓÒ We have already seen how to compute slopes of curves given by parametric equations it is how we computed slopes in polar coordinates EXAMPLE 5 Find the slope of the cycloid x = t sint, y = cost We compute x = cost, y = sint, so dy dx = sint cost Note that when t is an odd multiple of &pi, like &pi or 3&pi, this is (/2) =, so there is a horizontal tangent line, in agreement with figure 4 At even multiples of &pi, the fraction is /, which is undefined The figure shows that there is no tangent line at such points

14 252 Chapter Polar Coordinates, Parametric Equations Areas can be a bit trickier with parametric equations, depending on the curve and the area desired We can potentially compute areas between the curve and the x-axis quite easily EXAMPLE 52 Findtheareaunder onearchofthecycloidx = t sint, y = cost We would like to compute 2&pi y dx, but we do not know y in terms of x However, the parametric equations allow us to make a substitution: use y = cost to replace y, and compute dx = ( cost) dt Then the integral becomes 2&pi ( cost)( cost) dt = 3&pi Note that we need to convert the original x limits to t limits using x = t sint When x =, t = sint, which happens only when t = Likewise, when x = 2&pi, t 2&pi = sint and t = 2&pi Alternately, because we understand how the cycloid is produced, we can see directly that one arch is generated by t 2&pi In general, of course, the t limits will be different than the x limits This technique will allow us to compute some quite interesting areas, as illustrated by the exercises As a final example, we see how to compute the length of a curve given by parametric equations Section 99 investigates arc length for functions given as y in terms of x, and develops the formula for length: b a + ( ) 2 dy dx dx Using some properties of derivatives, including the chain rule, we can convert this to use parametric equations x = f(t), y = g(t): b a + ( ) 2 dy b dx = dx a = = v u v u (dx ) 2 + dt (dx ) 2 + dt ( dx dt ) 2 ( ) 2 dy dt dx dx dx ( ) 2 dy dt dt (f (t)) 2 +(g (t)) 2 dt Here u and v are the t limits corresponding to the x limits a and b

15 5 Calculus with Parametric Equations 253 EXAMPLE 53 Find the length of one arch of the cycloid From x = t sint, y = cost, we get the derivatives f = cost and g = sint, so the length is 2&pi 2&pi ( cost) 2 +sin 2 t dt = 2 2cost dt Now we use the formula sin 2 (t/2) = ( cos(t))/2 or 4sin 2 (t/2) = 2 2cost to get 2&pi 4sin 2 (t/2) dt Since t 2&pi, sin(t/2), so we can rewrite this as 2&pi 2sin(t/2) dt = 8 Exercises 5 Consider the curve of exercise 6 in section 4 Find all values of t for which the curve has a horizontal tangent line 2 Consider the curve of exercise 6 in section 4 Find the area under one arch of the curve 3 Consider the curve of exercise 6 in section 4 Set up an integral for the length of one arch of the curve 4 Consider the hypercycloid of exercise 7 in section 4 Find all points at which the curve has a horizontal tangent line 5 Consider the hypercycloid of exercise 7 in section 4 Find the area between the large circle and one arch of the curve 6 Consider the hypercycloid of exercise 7 in section 4 Find the length of one arch of the curve 7 Consider the hypocycloid of exercise 8 in section 4 Find the area inside the curve 8 Consider the hypocycloid of exercise 8 in section 4 Find the length of one arch of the curve 9 Recall the involute of a circle from exercise 9 in section 4 Find the point in the first quadrant in figure 44 at which the tangent line is vertical Recall the involute of a circle from exercise 9 in section 4 Instead of an infinite string, suppose we have a string of length &pi attached to the unit circle at (,), and initially laid around the top of the circle with its end at (,) If we grasp the end of the string and begin to unwind it, we get a piece of the involute, until the string is vertical If we then keep the string taut and continue to rotate it counter-clockwise, the end traces out a semi-circle with center at (,), until the string is vertical again Continuing, the end of the string traces out the mirror image of the initial portion of the curve see figure 5 Find the area of the region inside this curve and outside the unit circle
