Find a polar equation for the curve represented by the given Cartesian equation. y = 7
We will be using the concept of the cartesian coordinate to solve this.
Answer: The polar equation for the curve represented by the given cartesian equation y = 7 is r = 7cosecθ.
Let's solve this step by step.
Given that, y = 7.
We know the cartesian coordinate of a point P can be (x,y), and the polar coordinates of the same point can be (rcosθ, rsinθ).
Substitute the value of y.
rsinθ = 7
r = 7/sinθ
r = 7cosecθ
