Arc length of polar graphs
You may already be familiar with finding arc length of graphs that are defined in terms of rectangular coordinates. We'll now extend our knowledge of arc length to include polar graphs.
Sal shows the polar arc length formula, and explains why it is true.
What is the arc length of the polar curve r = 4sin(theta)?
Arc length of polar curves practice problems.
