# Convert Polar to Rectangular Coordinates - Calculator

Convert polar to rectangular two dimensional coordinates using a calculator.

__Polar and Rectangular Coordinates__

The relationships between rectangular coordinates (x , y) and polar coordinates (R , t), using the figure below, are as follows:
**y = R sin t ** and
**x = R cos t**

**R ^{2} = x^{2} + y^{2}** and

**tan t = y / x**

where the quadrant of angle t is determined by the signs of x and y.

An html 5 applet is used to calculate x and y knowing R and t. Angle t may be in degrees or radians.
