# Convert Rectangular to Polar Coordinates - Calculator

## Rectangular and Polar CoordinatesConvert rectangular to polar two dimensional coordinates using a calculator.The rectangular coordinates (x,y) and polar coordinates (R,t) are related as follows. y = R sin t and x = R cos tR^{2} = x^{2} + y^{2} and tan t = y/xThe calculator finds R using R = sqrt(x ^{ 2} + y^{ 2}). Then finds the quadrant using the signs of x and y and solve any of the equations
for t such that t is in the range (-π , π] or (-180° , 180°].
