2D Coordinate Systems: Polar


The Polar is a two-dimensional coordinate system in which each point on a plane is determined by a distance from a fixed point and an angle from a fixed direction.
The Polar coordinate system is extended into three dimensions with two different coordinate systems, the cylindrical and spherical coordinate system.
