About Polar Plots
Use polar plots to visualize the mapping of radius r and angle θ onto x and y using the standard transformations:
x = r·cos(θ)
y = r·sin(θ)
Where radius r and angle θ can assume positive or negative values.
Creating Plots
To create a plot, insert an empty plot, and define the axis expressions:
Edit the radial axis to change the lower, interval, or upper limit tick marks.
Change the trace symbol, line style, color, or thickness.
Customizing Plots
To customize a plot, work with its parts or its region. For example, to add traces, you need to add axis expressions. To change the size of a plot, you need to resize the plot region.
