Lecture 3: Polar Coordinates
Video Description: Herb Gross defines and demonstrates the use of polar coordinates. He describes the non-uniqueness of polar coordinates and how to calculate the slope of a curve, which depends on the angle the curve makes with the radius vector. Finally, he computes the area (in terms of polar coordinates) of the region between two rays.
