PolarPloting by useing Mathematica

  1. Dec 11, 2006 #1
    If I want to polarplot a function, say, r=cos(t) , what instructions should I type?

    I tried this before:

    PolarPlot [ Cos[t] , {t, 0, 2 Pi} ]

    but it just brought out the same thing!

    PolarPlot [ Cos[t] , {t, 0, 2 Pi} ] ,not the graph!

    Where did I went wrong?? :confused:

    Don't put a space after PolarPlot (or anywhere else).

    Your command line should read: PolarPlot[Cos[t],{t, 0, 2 Pi}]
