Intelligent ® Analyze a Conic Section in Polar Form

The polar form of a conic with one focus fixed at
the origin (pole) has one of the following forms:

r = p/(1+εĚcos(t−φ)
r = p/(1−εĚcos(t−φ)
r = p/(1+εĚsin(t−φ)
r = p/(1−εĚsin(t−φ)
where ε is the eccentricity, ε≥0, |p| is the semi-latus-
, and φ is the tilt angle, 0≤φ≤π.

Enter a conic function in polar form (use t as your angle variable) and click solve it or click random example to see how this works

r = f(t) =
