Some Polar Plots
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Polar and parametric plots can be made to form unusual objects and shapes. You can vary the shape, color, and size of a petal-like object. Symmetry can be maintained or broken depending on the values selected.
