### What is Polar Graph Paper?

Polar graph paper, also known as polar coordinate paper is a graph paper with concentric circles (with equal spacing between them) that are divided into small arcs. In plotting on this paper, one measures a radial distance from the pole (origin) and then rotates an angle of theta degrees from the polar axis (positive x axis).In polar coordinates, the point (r, ?) is described as being a certain distance (r) from the pole (origin) and at a certain angle (?) from the polar axis (positive horizontal axis).

### Plotting Example

The polar coordiates graph below demonstrates the plotting of three points. The red point has polar coordinates of (6, 60^{o}). The green point has polar coordinates of (2, 170

^{o}). And, the purple point has polar coordinates of (8, 260

^{o}).

### About our Polar Coordinates Paper

We have four styles of polar coordinates graph paper...-- six inch graph, black ink, one chart

-- four inch graph, black ink, two charts

-- six inch graph, blue ink, one chart

-- four inch graph, blue ink, two charts

Choose a size and an ink color that will work well with your plot. These charts print on a standard sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. They can be opened and printed with a .pdf document reader such as Adobe Reader.
