Convert the polar equation to rectangular form.

{eq}\theta=\pi {/eq}

## Question:

Convert the polar equation to rectangular form.

{eq}\theta=\pi {/eq}

## Polar to Rectangular form:

If we are given the value of {eq}\theta {/eq} in the polar form, then we can easily convert it in the rectangular form by using {eq}\tan \theta = \frac{y}{x}{/eq} . The term {eq}\tan \theta = \frac{y}{x}{/eq} is obtained by dividing the terms {eq}x = r\cos \theta {/eq} and {eq}y = r\sin \theta {/eq} . At last, substituting the value of {eq}\theta {/eq} into {eq}\tan \theta = \frac{y}{x}{/eq} will give us the required equation.
