Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok we can use x = r cos theta, and y = r sin theta,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0spinning polars tho.....not so much; aint had the practice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ive read the vector stuff, it just wont stick. for some reason

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0polars are just vector equations at heart :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r = magnitude; <cos,sin> are the components

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r<cos(t),sin(t)> is the basi set up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those are the cartesian components you mean

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but polars define length(r) whih is the magnitude of a vector; and the <cos,sin> angles are the x and y components of a vector

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a vector function simply defines a curve or surface generated by the parametric equations for the vector components from teh origin

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that is all a polar equation is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0come again, parametric equation for the vector components (the cartesian components?)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(r,t) is a polar equation right? (radius,theta) this tells you how far to turn and how far to move

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats all a vector is; an arrow indicating direction and length

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok , lets use th for theta

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok , so say again your statement

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0r<cos(th),sin(th)> is the vector equivalent of a polar equation (r,th)

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or simpy <r cos(th), r sin(th)>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0vector , as in the cartesian components of the vector

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the point P(x,y) is the same as defining a vector from the origin as <x,y>

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vector is an arrow pointing to the point

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, that sometimes confuses me

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we write < x,y> for a vector, and P(x,y) for a point

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sometimes they write a vector as v(x,y) which confuses tha tmatter; i prefer the convention of just making it pointy to indicate its an arrow :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, i like to distinguish between points (n tuples) and vectors
