Hi. I have been looking at the coordinate charts for the unit circle x^2 + y^2 = 1. In the notes I have the circle is split into 4 coordinate charts the first being -(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

##U_1## : x>0 , ##A_1## = y (PS without the symbols tab I have used A for the letter phi )

There are 3 more similar charts. My question is - do the 4 charts on their own show that they are referring to a unit circle ? I can't see that they do without providing extra information
