Problem 17E

Converting coordinates Express the following polar coordinates in Cartesian coordinates. Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 17E

Step 1:

In this problem we have to express the given polar coordinates ( 1, ) in cartesian coordinates.

To convert polar coordinates ( r , to Cartesian coordinate (x , y) is ;

X = r cos( Y = r sin( Given polar coordinates ( r , = ( 1, )

So , x = r cos( = (1) cos( )

= cos( ) , since cos( -x) = cos(x)

= , since cos( ) = .

y =  r sin( = (1) sin( )

= -sin( ) , since sin(-x) = -sin(x)

= , since sin( ) = .

Hence the cartesian co-ordinates are ( x, y)  = ( , )
