Calculus Polar Area Rose Curve Example
This examples shows how to find the area of one petal of a polar curve and, obviously, how to find the entire area since you just multiply it. I typically find half a petal, double that, and then multiply by however many petals the curve has. Using symmetry is important for finding polar regions.
Slopes of Tangent Lines in Polar Form, Ex 1
This video gives the formula to find the slope of a tangent line when the curve is described in polar form. It then work out an example of finding the slope of a tangent line.

Slopes of Tangent Lines in Polar Form, Ex 2
This video gives the formula to find the slope of a tangent line when the curve is described in polar form. It then work out an example of finding the slope of a tangent line.
Slopes of Tangent Lines in Polar Form, Ex 3
This video gives the formula to find the slope of a tangent line when the curve is described in polar form. It then work out an example of finding the slope of a tangent line.
