Expert Answer:

The 2-D polar co-ordinates system involves the distance from the origin & an azimuth angle. Figure shows the 2-D polar co-ordinate system where r is the distance from the origin to point P & θ is the azimuth angle measured from the horizontal(X) axis in the anti clockwise direction.Thus the position of point P (r ,θ ) r and θ are the 2-D polar coordinates
