Hi there. I must express the next region in polar coordinates:

[tex]\{x\in{R^2:x^2+y^2\leq{2y}}\}[/tex]

So, this is what I did to visualize the region:

Completing the square we get:

[tex]x^2+y^2-2y\leq{0}\Rightarrow{x^2+(y-1)^2\leq{1}}[/tex]

Then, polar coordinates form:

[tex]f(x)=\begin{Bmatrix} x=\rho \cos\theta \\y=\rho \sin\theta \end{matrix}[/tex]

So I got

[tex]\rho^2=2y\Rightarrow{\rho=\displaystyle\frac{2y}{\rho}}\Rightarrow{\rho=2\sin\theta}[/tex]

[tex]f(x)=\begin{Bmatrix} x=2\sin\theta \cos\theta \\y=\sin^2\theta \end{matrix}[/tex]

Now, how do I express the region with polar coordinates? this is the inside of the circle, I've just get the expression for the boundary. How do I include the inside of it?

Bye there. Thanks for posting.
