    it has not any special method , just first give theta some value , then do this for r

    oh 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

    Well 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|
