Region D in Polar Coord

  1. Mar 4, 2007 #1
    How would you write the region D given by

    \[D: \left\{
    \begin{array}{l l}
    \frac{-d}{2} \leq y \leq \frac{d}{2} \\
    -\infty < x < \infty \\ \end{array} \right. \]

    in polar coordinates?

    first think about how you write the equation of a straight line in polar coord...

    Or, more specifically, how to write x and y in polar coordinates. Replace x and y in the inequalities with those and solve the inequalities.
