Area Bounded by Polar Curves
Main Concept

For polar curves of the form , the area bounded by the curve and the rays and can be calculated using an integral.



Choose a polar function from the list below to plot its graph. Enter the endpoints of an interval, then use the slider or button to calculate and visualize the area bounded by the curve on the given interval. When choosing the endpoints, remember to enter π as "Pi". Note that any area which overlaps is counted more than once.


Interval θ =
The area contained by the curve on this interval is
