Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh let me explain more first suppose r=1,then for theta between 0 to 2pi what shape do you have? surely a circle with radius r , now change r you will have lots of circles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well shining isn't quite right. Because if you pick an r you're also picking a theta as they are equal... So as r grows so does theta linearly. So in polar it should look something like this: dw:1355872808171:dw
