# Identifying and Sketching a Conic In Exercises 13–22, find the eccentricity and the distance from the pole to the directrix of the conic. Then identify the conic and sketch its graph. Use a graphing utility to confirm your results. r = 1 1 − cos θ

To determine

To calculate: Eccentricity and distance from the pole to the directrix of the conic and then to identify the conic for the equation and sketch its graph. Then to confirm the results by using graphing utility.

Explanation

Given: Polar equation is given by: r=11cosθ

Formula used: The standard equation of conic is r=ed1cosθ.

Calculation: The given equation is r=11cosθ
