Units[Standard]

 polar
 convert to polar form

 Calling Sequence polar(z) polar(r, t)

Parameters

 z - algebraic expression r - algebraic expression, understood to be real t - algebraic expression, understood to be real

Description

 • In the Standard Units environment, the polar function is overloaded with a function that removes any units from the first argument and multiplies the result by that unit.  The argument t can be unitless or have units of the dimension plane_angle.
 • For other properties, see the global function polar.

Examples

Notes:

 – To enter a unit in 2-D Math input, select the unit from the appropriate Units palette. If the unit you want is not there, select $\mathrm{unit}$ and then enter the unit.
 – In Maple 2015 and later versions, the double brackets around a unit are not displayed unless you are editing the unit.
