POLAR COORDINATES
The
 polar coordinate system
is another way tospecify points in a plane. Points are specified bythe
directed 
distance,
, form the pole and the
directed 
angle,
θ 
, measures counter-clockwisefrom the polar axis. The
 pole
has coordinates(0,
θ 
).
 
UNIQUESNESS OF POLARCOORDINATES
In polar coordinates, ordered pairs of points are
 NOT 
unique; that is, there are many “names” todescribe the same physical location.The point (
,
θ 
) can also be represented by(
,
θ 
+ 2
kπ 
) and (−
,
θ 
+ [2
+ 1]
π 
).
