Textbook Problem

Express the location of the fly in Problem 40 in polar coordinates.

To determine
The location of the fly in polar coordinate.

Explanation

Given Info: The x coordinate of the fly is 2m and the y coordinate of the fly is 1m and the x coordinate of the fly is 2m and the y coordinate of the fly is 1m

Explanation:

The distance of the fly in polar coordinate (r).

From Pythagorean Theorem, the formula to calculate the distance is,

r=x2+y2

  • r is the distance of the fly from origin,
  • xandy Are the coordinate of the fly

Substitute 2m for x , 1m for y to find d .

d=(2m)2+(1m)2=2.2m

Thus, the distance of the fly in polar coordinate (r) is 2
