√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- rectum, and φ is the tilt angle, 0≤φ≤π.
