    If you were add axis labels to a polar plot what would you use for labels in place for a y-axis label and a x-axis label?

    I've seen the axes still labeled as x and y for polar coordinates (because of the relationship between polar and rectangular). I've seen no labels at all. Why do you ask?

    I'm just wondering what's the standard, if there's one to begin with.
