Graphing a Conic In Exercises 3 and 4, use a graphing utility to graph the polar equation when (a) e = 1 , (b) e = 0.5 , and (c) e = 1.5 . Identify the conic. r = 2 e 1 − e sin θ

a)

To determine

Sketch the graph of the polar equation using graphing utility when e=1 and also identify the type of the conic.

Explanation

Given: the given polar equation is r=2e1âˆ’esinÎ¸

Calculation:

When e=1, r becomes

r=2.11âˆ’.sinÎ¸.

r=21âˆ’sinÎ¸

Hence, the conic is a Parabola.

Steps to sketch the required graph using graphing utility:

Step 1: Press â€˜ONâ€™ key

b)

To determine

Sketch the graph of the polar equation using graphing utility when e=0.5 and also identify the type of the conic

c)

To determine

Sketch the graph of the polar equation using graphing utility when e=1.5 and also identify the type of the conic.
