To avoid errors make sure that the angle unit is THE ONE required by your problem. To verify or to change the angle unit press [SIFT][MODE] and select [3: Deg] for degrees, [4:Rad] for radians, or [5:Grad] for grads.

Convert from rectangular to polar

[SHIFT][+] (Pol) . Screen displays Pol(
You enter the X-coordinate, and the Y coordinate separated by a comma, then you close the parenthesis and press [=].

Exemple: Polar coordinate of the point (1,1)
Pol( 1, 1) gives
r=1.414213562 (square root of 2)
θ=45

Here is how you enter it
Press [SHIFT][MODE][2:LineIO]
[SHIFT][POL] 1 [SHIF] [,] 1 [)] [=]

The screen displays
Pol(1,1)
r= 1.414213562
θ= 45

Convert from polar to rectangular coordinates

Exemple: Recatngular coordinates of (r=3, θ=60°)
[SHIFT][Rec] 3 [SHIFT][,] 60 [ ) ] [=]
The screen displays
Rec(3,60)
X= 1.5
Y= 2.598076211

### How to use pol ?

The Pol function converts coordinates from rectangular to polar. Pol(x,y) converts the rectangular coordinates (x,y) to polar coordinates (r, theta).

For examples and instructions, see page E-37 of the manual and example #036 in the Appendix.

In the COMP mode (press MODE 1 to get there), press
SHIFT [Pol] (-) . 1 7 SHIFT [,] (-) . 4 7 =

[Pol] is on the "+" key, [,] is on the ")" key.

### I need to convert the rectngular form to polar form , so how can i do that ?

In Run screen, Press OPTN, Press F6> repeatedly until you see the ANGL TAB. Press F6> again (once or twice). You will see the TAB Pol( and Rec(
To convert from Rectangular coordinates to Polar press POL(, type in the x and y coordinates then EXE
Example: F1: Pol(1,1) gives (1.314213562, 45)
F2: Rec(square root (2), 45) gives (1,1)
Make sure the angle unit is set to the one you need (degree or radian).

### How do I convert between the rectangular and polar form of a number with imaginary values? i.e. I want to take the number a+bi and convert it to polar D&lt;(angle) and vice versa.

Use the >Rec and >Pol commands. They're in the Complex number menu, accessible through 2nd [CPLX] MORE.

[CPLX] is the shifted function of the 9 key.

### How to change polar form to rectangular form by calculator?

Use the Rec function (shift of the - key).

Rec(r,t) converts a polar value of magnitude r and angle t in the current angular mode. The real value is assigned to X and the imaginary value is assigned to Y.

Use the Pol function (shift of the + key) for the reverse.

It's on page E-37 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download a new one from http://www.casio.com/support/manuals

### How can i enter a polar form number with angle to convert into a rect form

how can i enter a polar form number with angle to convert into a complex numbe(a+bi)

You can perform coordinate conversions in the COMP, STAT, MATRIX and VECTOR Modes.
Angle unit may be in either degree or radian.

To convert from rectangular to polar, (SQRT(2)/2,SQRT(2)/2)

Press [SHIFT] [+] (Pol)
Screen displays Pol(
Type in SQRT2
Use right arrow to move cursor out of radical
Type in /2 [SHIFT] [,]
Type in SQRT2
Use right arrow to move cursor out of radical
Type in /2
Close the right parenthesis
Screen displays Pol (SQRT2 /2, SQRT2 / 2)
Press [=]. Display echoes the command on top line and result in bottom line as r=1, theta =45, (if unit is in degree) or theta = 0.7853981634 if unit is radian.

To convert from polar to rectangular coordinates
Note: You cannot use the answer memory to convert back to rectangular because the calculator will use the r-value only. So you will have to enter the radius AND the angle.

ex: Rec(1,45)
Angle must be in degree
Press [SHIFT][-] (Rec)
Screen display Rec(
Type in 1 [SHIFT] (,) 45 [)] [=]
Calculator displays X=0.7071067812, Y=0.7071067812
If you press the SD key hoping to convert the decimals to radicals, the calculator will not do it.

As to the "confusion", I have found none.
After you finish entering the argument of a square root, use the right arrow to move cursor out of under the root symbol to signify that the argument is complete. If you use a left parenthesis inside the root, you must insert the matching right parenthesis inside the root, then move cursor outside the root.

This is how the calculator behaves, and I am not expressing an opinion on how simple or complicated that is. I assume that to make full use of the calculator capabilities, one has to converse with it, using the syntax it understands.

### How to convert polar to rectangular form

Hello,
Press [MODE] and select [1:COMP]
Press [SHIFT][MODE] and select [3:Deg]. You can also use rad if the angle you are given is in radians.
To start the conversion
Press [SHIFT][-] (Rec) screen displays Rec(
Key in the radius r , ex: 3 screen displays Rec(3
Press [SHIFT][)] (,) to enter comma separator Rec(3,
Key in the angle in degrees, ex: 57.3; screen displays Rec(3,57.3
Press ) to close parentheses; screen displays Rec(3, 57.3)
Press [=]
Screen displays
Rec(3, 57.3)
X=1.620720961
Y=2.524532346

X and Y are the values of the coordinates.

Rec(3, Pi) gives X=-3, Y=0
