Finding a Polar Equation In Exercises 39-44. Find a polar equation for the conic with its focus at the pole and the given vertex or vertices.Conic Vertex or VerticesParabola ( 5 , π )

To determine

To calculate: The polar form of the equation for the parabola having its focus at the pole and the vertex (5,π).

Explanation

Given:

The conic is parabola having its vertex (5,π).

Formula used:

The polar form of the equation of the parabola with its focus at the pole is:

r=ed1ecosθ

Here e is the eccentricity and d is the distance from the focus and its directrix.

Calculation:

In a parabola, eccentricity is 1.

Since the vertex of the parabola is (5,π). So,

(r,θ)=(5,π)

Now, put these values in the standard form of the equation for the parabola
