Problem 6E

Slopes of tangent lines Find the slope of the line tangent to the following polar curves at the given points. At the points where the curve intersects the origin (when this occurs), find the equation of the tangent line in polar coordinates.

r = 4 cos θ;

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 6E

Step 1:

In this problem we have to find the slope of the line tangent to the curve  at the point  and we have to find the points where the curve intersects the origin.

We know that the slope of the curve at the given point is

We have

Therefore

     

     

       

     

Step 2:

 Now

             

           

           

Step 3 of 3
