Hello, Can anyone please help me with this question? I need to get it done VERY soon. If someone could post a full solution I would be extremely grateful. It's probably very easy for someone who understands parametric equations and polar coordinates and such. I don't at the moment! I scanned the problem in from the textbook. >http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v493/photohub/spiralthumb.jpg [Broken]< note: I already posted this in the general Calc section only after I realized there is a more appropriate section, namely this one. However, it doesn't seem like this forum allows users to delete their own threads. I don't mean to SPAM.
