X and y represents rectangular coordinates. What is the given equation using polar coordinates (r, theta). x^2 = 4y© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:24 pm ad1c9bdddf
using x = r cos (theta) y = r sin( theta)
we obtain r^2 cos^2(theta) = 4 r ...
This shows how to translate an equation into polar coordinates.
