Approximating Polar Area with Sectors
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
This Demonstration illustrates how the area inside a curve defined by a polar function can be approximated using sectors of a circle. Sectors are drawn using either a midpoint or an endpoint approximation.
