# ListPolarPlot

ListPolarPlot[{r1,r2,}]

plots points equally spaced in angle at radii ri.

ListPolarPlot[{{θ1,r1},{θ2,r2},}]

plots points at polar coordinates θi, ri.

ListPolarPlot[{list1,list2,}]

plots several lists of values.

# Details and Options

• ListPolarPlot[list] by default plots each element of list as a separate point.
• ListPolarPlot[list,Joined->True] draws a line through the list of points.
• The angle is measured in radians, counterclockwise from the positive axis.
• The , position corresponding to , is , . The value of need not be between 0 and .
• In ListPolarPlot[{r1,,rn}], r1 is taken to be associated with , and rn with .
• ListPolarPlot has the same options as ListPlot, with the following changes:
•  AspectRatio Automatic ratio of height to width AxesOrigin {0,0} where axes should cross MeshFunctions {#3&} how to determine placement of mesh points PolarAxes False whether to draw polar axes PolarAxesOrigin Automatic where to draw polar axes PolarGridLines None polar grid lines to draw PolarTicks Automatic polar axes ticks

## Basic Examples(3)

Plot a list of radii r equally spaced in angle:

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=

Join the points with a line:

 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=

Use θ, r coordinates for the data:

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=

Show multiple sets of data with a legend:

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=
