# Intrinsic to Cartesian Help watch

1. Does anybody know any website where they explain this process I've searched high and low and found nothing at all

what is intrinsic to cartesian? i know cartesian only
3. Intrinsic coordinates are where teh point is specified through an arc length and an angle made with the x-axis
4. an arc length? perhaps you mean a radius in which case you're talking polar coordinates, which I could explain roughly.

I've never heard of a coordinate system which defines in terms of an angle and arc length :|

Nope I know polar coordinates, I do mean arc length. They're also reffered to as natural coordinates

Okey, good luck there :| All sounds very long winded, and non intuitive.

love me? alllllrightey then,anyway if u need any more help.....
all u have to do is remember what dx/ds and dy/ds is equal to,then play around with the expression to convert frm intrinsic to cartesian.
By the way were are u gettin these qu from

Wanna get married?

We got a truckload of papers to do, this was the P5 Mock, and there's just that locus one left now, I managed to work my way through the rest (with some help). I've scanned the paper in, along with a heap of others I have (something like thirty) and am planning to upload them to the web somewhere
