 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 Simple Units environment, any verifications of valid dimensions ignore so-called Unit annotations.
 • In the Simple 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 must be unitless. With the model that the Simple Units environment uses for verifying dimensions, that includes quantities with the dimension of plane angle.
 • Every command in the Simple Units environment that needs to determine whether an expression is valid or not, does so using the Units:-TestDimensions command.
 • 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.
 – When you edit a unit, double brackets appear around it.
