What is the distance between #(4, pi/2 )# and #(2, pi/12 )#? Trigonometry The Polar System Polar Coordinates 1 Answer sankarankalyanam Apr 9, 2018 #color(blue)("Distance between the two points is " color(green)(2)# Explanation: #"Given : " A (4, pi/2), B(2, pi/2)# #x_A = 4 cos (pi/2) = 0, y_A = 4 sin (pi/2) = 4# #x_B = 2 cos (pi/2) = 0, y_B = 2 sin (pi/2) = 2# #color(brown)("Since y coordinates of both the points are 0"),# #color(crimson)("Distance between A & B is " = x_A - x_B = 4 - 2 = 2# Answer link Related questions What are Polar Coordinates?
