# What are Polar Coordinates?

May 11, 2018

#### Explanation:

I can give a simple answer, i.e. a combination of a radial coordinate r and the angle $\theta$, which we give as an ordered pair $\left(r , \theta\right)$.

I believe, though, that reading up what is said other places on the Internet, for instance http://mathworld.wolfram.com/PolarCoordinates.html, will be of more help.
