Need Help: Cartesian to Polar Coordinates

  1. Sep 15, 2004 #1
    Just got back into physics after 4 years in social science and I have forgotten how to convert cartesian coordinates to polar coordinates. The textbook I have makes no metion of it. probably bc I am expected to know this, but I can't remember. I remember how to calculate the distace between two points, but that's it. The two points I have are (2,-4) and (-3,3)
