Problem 38

The limaon of Pascal is defined by the equation r a cos u b. [The curve is named after tienne Pascal (15881640), the father of Blaise Pascal. According to mathematics historian Howard Eves, however, the curve is misnamed; it appears earlier, in the writings of Albrecht Drer (14711528).] When a b, the curve is a cardioid; when a 0 the curve is a circle. Graph the following limaons. (a) r 2 cos u 1 (d) r cos u 2 (b) r 2 cos u 1 (e) r 2 cos u 2 (c) r cos u 2 (f) r cos u B
