How do you convert #(-2,-2)# into polar coordinates?
The polar coordinates, in
When converting from polar to rectangular coordinates, we can use:
Going in the opposite direction, our first step is to find
Now we know the radius, and this is the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle with the other two sides being
Use your calculator, ensuring it is on radians rather than degrees mode, to find the angle whose sin is
This means that the polar coordinates, in
It's worth noting that this is equivalent to
