I am asking for the table for the polar equation 6t

There is no such thing as "the table". This explains why you cannot find it. Can you provide more information? Is there a specific problem you are working on?

you want to make a table of cartesian coordinates for the polar function \(r(t)=6t\) ?
 one year ago

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Notice richyw's use of the phrase "a table". You can make a table on any values you like. This is why "the table" doesn't exist.

Okay. So I am just basically looking for the coordinates of this equation
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you could make a table of the polar coordinates. so for whatever angle t, you would have whatever radius r. or you could convert these coordinates to cartesian values, which would have x and y values being compared.

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
either way all you are doing is solving this equation for a few values.

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
No I have polar graph paper and all i need is like the points.
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok I see. so then you just directly solve this. choose whatever values of t that you want and then you will get the r value directly from the equation

Can you give me an example? If you don't mind
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
alright well the first point I would do would be at an angle of 0. so\[r(0)=6(0)=0\] so you know that point will have angle 0 radius 0 (the origin)

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
how many points do you want?

I am going by 30 degrees so until 360
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
are you sure this is in degrees? usually I would assume radians unless it specified.
 one year ago

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
well radians will be find also
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
not that is makes a difference for the shape though
 one year ago

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I understand but I am just trying to graph it
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok well then go 30 degrees more (\(\pi/3\) radians) plug it in \(r(\pi/3)=6(\pi/3)\) so \(r=2\pi\)
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then plug in \(2\pi/3\) etc until you reach \(2\pi\)
 one year ago

sirm3dBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
uhm, 30 degrees is \(\pi /6\)
 one year ago

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Your fine you did 60 degrees
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yup do what I said but every \(\pi/6\)
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I make that mistake so often...

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It's fine we can't remember everything
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what I would do if I was you is calculate \(2\pi\) first and then it will give you an idea of the scale you need to use for the graph. because it's going to be a spiral shaped thing

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes I have a art math project I already drew my flower
 one year ago

TammyFlowBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Hey can you convert that to radians because it will make my day much easier
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
that's already in radians
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yes if it was in degrees you would have much larger values of r!
 one year ago

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I suppose if you wanted to see the radius scale in terms of fractions of pi I could open up octave. but you are gonna need to make the table of values anyways if that's what's required...

here's a graph of the polar equation \(r(t) = 6t\) in the interval \(0 \leq t \leq 2\pi\)
