# Finding an Angle In Exercises 107-112, use the result of Exercise 106 to find the angle ψ between the radial and tangent lines to the graph for the indicated value of θ . Use a graphing utility to graph the polar equation, the radial line, and the tangent line for the indicated value of θ . Identify the angle ψ .Polar Equation Value of θ r = 6 1 − cos θ θ = 2 π 3

To determine

To calculate: The angle ψ between the radial and tangent line for the polar equation r=61cosθ at θ=2π3 and then sketch its graph with the help of graphing utility along with its radial and tangent line.

Explanation

Given:

The polar equation is given as r=61cosθ at θ=2π3.

Formula used:

The angle ψ between the radial and tangent line to the graph for the polar equation r=f(θ) is given by,

tanψ=rdrdθ

Calculation:

Consider the polar equation, r=61cosθ

Differentiate r with respect to θ,

drdθ=ddθ(61cosθ)=6(sinθ(1cosθ)2)=6sinθ(1cosθ)2

To calculate tanψ, use the formula,

tanψ=rdrdθ=61cosθ6sinθ(1cosθ)2=1cosθsinθ

Substitute θ=2π3, the value of ψ is,

tanψ=1cos(<
