# Find the area enclosed by the curve r2 = 9 cos 5θ.

To determine

To find: The area enclosed within in the curve r2=9cos5θ.

Explanation

Given:

The polar equation of the curve with variable r is as follows. ,

r2=9cos5θ

r=±9cos5θ (1)

Assume θ=0°.

Calculate the value of r.

Substitute 0° for θ.in equation (1)

r=13sin(0×π180)r=1

Calculate the value of x.

x=rcosθ

Substitute 1 for r and 0° for θ.

x=rcosθ=1×cos(0×π180)=1

Calculate the value of y.

y=rsinθ

Substitute 0 for r and 0° for θ.

y=1×sin(0×π180)=0

Similarly calculate the values of x and y and the negative values of x and y as x’ and y’ as the values of θ from 0° to 360° as shown in the table (1).

Tabulate the values of x and y in table (1).
