The distance,

When given two polar points

We can use the Law of Cosines to find the length, c, of the blue line:

Using the two given points we assign:

Substituting into equation [1]:

To find the distance between two polar coordinates ((r_1, \theta_1)) and ((r_2, \theta_2)), you can use the formula:

[ d = \sqrt{r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 2r_1r_2\cos(\theta_2 - \theta_1)} ]

Substitute the given values into the formula and calculate the distance.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
